First Anniversary: Loews Loves Pets

Yesterday was our first anniversary! We had a fantastic time in Annapolis, and it was so fun to stay in our wedding night suite again. The room (obviosuly) was exactly as we remembered; when we walked in for the first time yesterday I had the weirdest feeling of "Oh where should I hang my wedding gown?".
But before we get into all of the fun things we did on our first anniversary, I want to tell you how fantastic the Loews Annapolis Hotel is. I may be a bit biased - we did have our wedding there after all - but I'm pretty sure it's the best we've ever been to. It's beautiful, the staff is great, and oh, they love dogs.

We wanted Marley to be in our family photos (more on our anniversary shoot later) and Loews is dog friendly, so our pup joined us on our anniversary trip. She loved it:When we checked in, the front desk gave us a "Dog Ammenity" bag full of the cutest stuff! There was a cute blue "thristy mat" to soak up water bowl spills, a map of dog parks and outdoor seating restaurants, a little gold dog bone shaped tag for her collar (it says Loews Hotels on it), a bunch of poop bags, and my favorites.... a little travel size water bowl (&bottle of Poland Spring water) and a hang tag for the door.

Here's a shot of the blue mat with her bowls:

And here's the super cute door hanger:

This was awesome because we left Marley in the room alone while we went out to dinner. We didn't have to worry about housekeeping or anyone else going in the room while we weren't in there.

Here's one of me and Marley at the end of the night:

Loews made it so easy to travel with a dog! They don't have any restrictions on weight or breed, and don't have any policies on leaving the dog alone in the room or crating. She slept up on the big king size bed with us, just like at home. It was great!!

I have a ton of pictures I want to share with you guys, so I'm going to split up the anniversary recap into a few parts. Which part do you want to see next - gifts or cake?

I'm glad it worked out so well for you. We have a beagle and she doesn't travel with us. I can't decide how I feel about hotels that are dog friendly. It is great if I want to take my dog, but the idea of sitting on the furniture or bed that someone else's dog has been on sort of freaks me out. You dog is obviously well taken care of and clean...not all are. I have mixed feelings about this one.

Oh, let's see those presents!
