Pet-Friendly Hotels in Norwalk, Connecticut
This was the first time I felt the urge to spend an entire day enjoying what my dog-friendly hotel had to offer. EVEN Hotels are not your average pet-friendly hotel chain. Their slogan, “Stay well, even on the road” is highlighted through all of their unparalleled amenities, such as their dog-friendly relaxing spaces, game room, outside area, and lounge with a great firepit. Dexter and other well-behaved dogs are welcomed in all the areas of the hotel. EVEN Hotels truly welcome dogs!
EVEN Hotel Breakfast Options
Our room included both a mini refrigerator and a Keurig coffeemaker. Bringing our own breakfast foods was an option, so we enjoyed a fruit breakfast and coffee in our rooms. However, another great option for breakfast is the hotel’s restaurant Cork & Kale™ or grab a healthy, conventional meal or snack at their Market and Bar. Cork & Kale™ serves up great tasting, good-for-you foods that are freshly prepared. If you have dietary restrictions, no worries. They offer a wide range of gluten-free and all-natural choices.
Did I mention how welcoming EVEN Hotels are to dogs? As Dexter and I walked by the breakfast spread, the nice breakfast host asked if Dexter could have some country bacon! Needless to say, Dexter had a great start to his day.
EVEN Hotels Dog-Friendly Amenities
After breakfast and getting ourselves ready for the day, we took advantage of their welcoming, dog-friendly indoor lounge area. Traveling can take a lot out of Dexter and the family, so a relaxing environment was just what we all needed. What was really nice was that we all connected and talked about all the fun we had so far on our dog-friendly New England road trip. It was an unexpected way to connect with each other.
During the day, we found ourselves playing a little a foosball and Ping-Pong. I so appreciate the fact that Dexter was able to accompany us during all of our activities. A lot of hotels do not allow dogs in their public spaces such as their game rooms, which means I cannot enjoy them. But, this was defiantly not the case with EVEN Hotels Norwalk.
EVEN Hotels Other Amenities
EVEN Hotel thinks about wellness, health, and relaxation in everything they offer. Our family certainly enjoyed all of the hotel’s many relaxing and fun activities. For those travelers wanting to stick to their workout routine, they have a pretty impressive health-and-fitness center, athletic studio, and even offer group classes.
If working out in the privacy of your own room is more your style, EVEN Hotels has you covered. Their Wellness rooms and suites come equipped with your very own in-room training zone and fitness kit. The room’s large 40-inch HDTV comes with the hotel’s in-room exercise programs, which was completed with a how-to colored guide. All this on top of an eco-friendly cork tile floor to help prevent slipping and injury.
Dog-Friendly Outdoor Restaurant and Patio in Norwalk, Connecticut
For dinner, we took advantage of the hotel’s restaurant, Cork & Kale™. We ordered our food and took it outside on the dog-friendly patio and lounge area. It was a beautiful evening, perfect for eating outdoors.
My mom ordered a tomato-and-cheese flatbread pizza. The crust was a crisp lavosh topped with fresh tomatoes, baby spinach, red onion, mozzarella and pecorino cheeses lightly seasoned with garlic. Ed ordered a nice-looking salad that was full of grape tomatoes, red onions, avocado and topped with their house-made salad dressing. I went with my favorite, grilled chicken, with brown rice, black beans, and a fresh avocado dip.
After dinner, we had one more thing up our sleeves. We thought sitting around the fire relaxing with family while toasting marshmallows would be the perfect way to end our dog-friendly Connecticut family vacation. Perfection.
If you are looking for a pet-friendly hotel that embraces wellness and dogs, I highly recommend EVEN Hotels. Tell them that Dexter the Dog sent you!
