Hotels are more pet friendly than timeshares. It is a trend in hotels, esp high end hotels, to allow pets for a fee. Ritz Carlton is pet friendly, for example. Many hotels within the Marriott family allow pets but it varies by property. Hyatt hotels have some pet friendly rooms but their timeshares do not. Most B&Bs in Carmel are pet friendly. I think it would be great if more timeshares in the USA (where folks can drive to) would allow pets. I would love to buy more timeshares on the West coast but I don’t because they are not pet friendly. It is sad that Squaw Valley advertises as a pet friendly ski resort yet, PlumpJack, the only pet friendly hotel is being torn down. I was willing to spend $600 a night at PlumpJack to stay in a small sterile hotel room simply so I could bring my pets. Imagine what a bonanza this would be for timeshares if they were pet friendly. People who are responsible and travel with pets are willing to pay extra for the privilege. Maybe that would help the timeshare industry. The timeshare industry appears to be financially weak right now, in spite of the great economy.
