Dogs and their owners will be treated like VIPS (Very Important Pets and Persons) at The Westin St. Francis when they indulge in the pet-pampering “Heavenly Dog Package.”
Upon check-in, two silver platters – one filled with gourmet dog treats and another with homemade giant chocolate chip cookies and two VOSS waters - will be delivered to the guestroom for owners and their four-legged friends to enjoy (doggies will even get to drink their VOSS water out of a silver bowl). After a day of sniffing out San Francisco’s best parks and dog-friendly hangouts (handpicked by The Westin St. Francis’ celebrity dog “Francis”), haute hounds can retire to doggie nirvana in a custom-designed Westin Heavenly Dog Bed®, complete with a miniature duvet for those less than furry fidos who could catch an evening chill. In addition to all of these canine comforts, the “Heavenly Dog Package” also includes the keepsake book “Francis: The Earthquake Dog” as a special memento of the hotel’s history.
The Westin St. Francis’ dog-friendly history dates back over one hundred years ago to the 1906 Great Earthquake when much of the hotel was destroyed. Several days after the earthquake, while San Francisco was attempting to clean up and rebuild The City, a small terrier was found in the basement of The Westin St. Francis. This little survivor was appropriately named “Francis” and instantly became a celebrity hero, even making an appearance in the San Francisco Chronicle. “Francis” has since become the iconic “Eloise” of The Westin St. Francis, complete with his very own look-alike stuffed animal and book.
Rates for the “Heavenly Dog Package” start at $269 for a queen bedded room, excluding tax and based upon availability. For reservations, please call (800) 917-7458 or visit www.westinstfrancis.com.
