“Tour the city of Norfolk with your furry companion by your side”

Norfolk, Va. (August 14, 2012) – The Norfolk Sheraton Waterside Hotel, along with participating Norfolk merchants, have created a special package for visitors and their four-legged friends. Nearly 20 percent of dogs travel with their owners, according to the U.S Travel Association. VisitNorfolk, along with its partners, have recognized the importance dog owners place on being able to travel with their pets.

Now through December 31, 2012, the Norfolk Sheraton Waterside is inviting dogs to join their owners on their ventures through Norfolk. The package includes deluxe overnight accommodations at the Norfolk Sheraton Waterside in one of their Sweet Sleeper beds. Canines are also treated with a Sweet Sleeper bed, dog bowls, treats, and clean up bags for use at the hotel.

Upon check-in at the Sheraton, participants will receive a pet package envelope. Each envelope will contain coupons for pet shops and restaurants at MacArthur Center including $10 off of a one-hour facial or massage. While participants are indulging, their canine companions can also enjoy a spa treatment at a nearby grooming establishment. Other coupons in this package included discounts to Barnes and Noble, and dinner with your pooch at Kincaid’s restaurant, both in MacArthur Center. While dining on the patio, participants pooches will receive their very own water bowl and dog treat. Upon presentation of the voucher, participants will also receive a complimentary appetizer.
