US: Hilton and Mars Petcare, the world’s largest pet care company, are teaming up "to set a new standard for pet-friendly travel".

Leveraging insights from Mars Petcare’s BETTER CITIES FOR PETS program, Hilton’s extended stay brands, Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites will implement pet-focused programming and benefits in the US and Canada.

Additionally, by January 1 2022, Homewood Suites will join Home2 Suites to become a 100 per cent pet-friendly brand across its portfolio of hotels and both brands will introduce consistent pet fees, starting at $50 per stay.

Currently, Home2 Suites offers more than 500 pet-friendly hotels, in addition to more than 300 pet-friendly Homewood Suites locations.

“Pets are an integral part of many of our guests’ families, and we’re proud to collaborate with Mars Petcare on the journey to become pet hero brands,” said Bill Duncan, global head, all suites & focused service brands, Hilton. “Our extended stay brands offer a home away from home for travellers, and their pets, especially with our spacious accommodations. We look forward to spreading the light and warmth of hospitality by creating a more inclusive and seamless travel experience for our guests and their furry friends.”

Ikdeep Singh, regional president, Mars Petcare North America, said: “We’ve seen first-hand the undeniable bond that pet parents have formed with their pets particularly over the past year, and we are more committed than ever to our purpose: A Better World for Pets. Leaning into our BETTER CITIES FOR PETS program, we are honoured to come together with Hilton to address a common pain point for pet parents as we continue on our mission to create a more welcoming world for people and their pets.”
