Planning your fall/winter holiday travel in California or Oregon? If so, then Greystone Hotels, a California based hotel ownership group, has a number of boutique west coast hotels for you and your dog to choose from. As we’ve mentioned before, hospitality companies are another great source for pet friendly hotels. And while they don’t have a single brand name for all their hotels, they often have great perks for pets that are common to all or most of them. With four independent boutique properties and one Marriott hotel, Greystone’s five properties are more than just pet friendly, they each offer unique experiences, comfort and service in some of the West’s most popular locations.
