Are there any dog friendly rooms?
Our experience was quite the opposite from Jenny's. Not only was the hotel dog friendly, the chef cooked meat daily for our dog when we were stranded during the "Beast from the East" great snowfall. The hotel's owners have two dogs themselves so you can hardly accuse them of being non-dog friendly.
