Prior to COVID-19, a travel survey from Orbitz showed that 77% of vacationers were planning to take their pets on a road trip during the summer. Anecdotally, plenty of people added pets to their homes while being locked down last year. Growing attached to furry friends over the past year likely means that even more people will consider traveling with their pets. Have no fear, Las Vegas is here for pets and their owners.
Las Vegas has become increasingly more dog-friendly over the years. Most Vegas Strip properties have rooms set aside for those traveling with pets. Caesars, Cosmopolitan, and MGM Resorts all allow pets to stay for a fee. Resorts World Las Vegas and The Venetian are now the only large casino resorts on the Vegas Strip that do not allow pets to stay at their property.
Wynn Welcomes Pets
Wynn Las Vegas is the most recent addition to the dog-friendly hotel options in Las Vegas. Technically, the Encore tower at Wynn Las Vegas is a dog-friendly hotel. Guests at Encore can enjoy their stay in any room or suite with up to two pets. The property now has exclusive amenities that meet the needs of this new breed of resort VIPs – Very Important Puppies.
The pampering begins at check-in with a complimentary doggy bag of welcome gifts. The bag includes a Wynn-logoed neckerchief, a fun toy for playtime, and an all-natural dog treat. Dog owners can still enjoy all Las Vegas has to offer with the help from the staff at Wynn. Guests can work with Encore’s Concierge team to arrange a schedule of dog walking or sitting services.
There’s a special room service menu for dogs staying at Wynn. Bone Appetite offers meat, fish, and vegetable dishes. The menu also has a selection of snacks and desserts. Menu highlights include the Best In Show, with lamb, steamed potatoes, and squash; Healthy Bites, with seared salmon, green beans, and brown rice; and the Puppy Patty, with Black Angus beef, broccoli, and farro.
As previously mentioned, there’s a fee for this service. Wynn charges an additional $125 for resort rooms or $175 for suites. Wynn allows up to two accompanying dogs per room. Visit Wynn for more information.
