Fido friendly Canyon Suites at the Phoenician is barking up the right tree with dog-lovers by putting out the welcome mat for furry, four-legged travel companions. The posh property has announced new complimentary features such as plush dog bedding, signature bowls, and elegant bone-shaped mats.
Through a partnership with local business Oh My Dog! (OMD), a welcome amenity is presented to each canine, including a natural treat -- such as a “Bark Jacobs” shoe cookie -- and eco-healthy toy. For an additional fee, OMD also offers a variety of pet concierge services -- a canine massage, private photo shoot, nighttime tuck-in service, and more.
Talk about spoiling your pets, when you bring your pooch to the Suites they will live in the lap of luxury with their own room service menu, created and prepared in-house by The Phoenician’s award-winning culinary team. The bill of fare features such delectable selections as Puppy Poppers (grilled chicken bits in natural juices, $12); Slobbering Salmon (from Skuna Bay, served with brown rice, $15); Canine Casserole (turkey, carrots, green beans and brown rice, $14) and for dessert, Pawsickles (Greek yogurt, fruit and carrots, $6). Through a special partnership with the Arizona Humane Society, 10 percent of room service sales from the first year will be donated to the organization to aid homeless, ill and injured animals.
Earlier this month, the Arizona Humane Society provided several exquisite models for a photo shoot to promote The Canyon Suites’ expanded dog-friendly program. Taking part in the project was Buster, a 5-year-old Yorkshire Terrier; Gracie, a 1-year-old Soft Coat Wheaten Terrier; and Dotty, a 1-year-old Poodle mix. Although the models quickly went from photo shoot to forever homes, there are plenty of loveable dogs, cats and critters awaiting adoption.

“Dogs are truly members of the family, and as such, are traveling more and more with their owners,” said Phoenician Managing Director Mark Vinciguerra. “At The Canyon Suites, we recognized this growing customer base, and responded by providing more tailored offerings that create a memorable experience for all.”
Accommodations for Canyon Suites guests with dogs are restricted to the first floor to ensure the comfort of those visitors who may have sensitivities or other concerns.
