Puppy Love is in full swing in the U.S. with an estimated 14% of all adults (29.1 million) toting a four-legged travel companion on vacation within the past three years (78% being dogs).

PIONEER IN PET FRIENDLY

Ahead of the curve, Cypress Inn was one of California’s first hotel properties to welcome pets in the mid-1980s and has since seen everything from parrots to pot bellied pigs check in for an adventure by the sea.  Standard operating procedure includes concierges carrying grain-free all-natural dog treats and all of the Inn’s 44 crisp, contemporary guestrooms appointed with dog bowls, plush dog beds and in-room fireplaces.  Top treats include Tricks for an upgrade upon arrival (based on availability) and complimentary Cypress Inn logoed collar tag for Fido to tout his travels.
YAPPY HOUR, MUTTINIS & CULINARY CANINE MENU
Things start to shake up in the afternoon, as Terry’s Lounge rolls out Yappy Hour daily from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  A vintage slice of Hollywood by the sea, Cypress Inn salutes all things retro with a classic cocktail menu and complimentary Muttini for four-legged drinkers.  A new Culinary Canine Menu debuts February 1st including such delicacies as Steak Tartar, Chow Hound Chicken and Fish & Chips.  One complimentary entrée rounds out the Puppy Love package.

An iconic landmark since 1929 and part of the elite collection of Carmel Boutique InnsCypress Inn embodies Hollywood-by-the-Sea elegance with casual seaside charm.   Co-owned by legendary Hollywood actress and animal rights enthusiast Doris Day, the 44-guestroom property is set in a Mediterranean footprint with vaulted ceilings, airy courtyards, in-room fireplaces and a crisp, contemporary décor.  

Ideally located just blocks from Carmel Beach and walking distance to 100+ art galleries, Cypress Inn offers afternoon tea, a pet-friendly Yappy Hour and sustainable dining menu at Terry’s Restaurant & Lounge, Carmel’s first and only Seafood Watch program participant.  Carmel-by-the-Sea is one square mile of incorporated city set along Carmel Bay on the Monterey Peninsula.  It is located 120 mi./192 km., south of San Francisco and 350 mi./560 km., north of Los Angeles.   The Monterey Peninsula Airport (MRY) is served by non-stop flights from Denver (DIA), Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), Phoenix (PHX), San Diego (SAN) and San Francisco (SFO).
