Andrew Bottomley, a concierge at Hotel Palomar Dallas, recently adopted Higgins the beagle. Higgins is now the hotel’s director of pet relations.

Whether you’re visiting Dallas for the first time or live here and want to book a fun staycation, Hotel Palomar Dallas should be high on your list of places to stay.

You can even score a deal for traveling with Fido. “Summer is an especially popular time to travel with pets,” Andrew Wright, general manager, said. “Our goal is to make every stay enjoyable and convenient for guests and their four-legged, furred and feathered friends alike.”

Palomar is offering guests 25 percent off their pet-friendly rate. And Higgins, the hotel’s director of pet relations, wants everyone on four legs or two to know about the “WAGS” package, which is available through December 31, 2012.

VIPs (aka, very important pets) get special treatment as part of the package. Those perks include comfy dog beds, hotel guest pet ID tags, designer treats, Higgins’ tips for pet-friendly restaurants, dog parks and more. The hotel offers a pet registration form to customize visits.

Palomar launched the promotion with a pet-friendly cocktail party June 21. The Royal Wags Pawty (yes pawty!) benefited Paws in the City, a local no-kill animal rescue organization. Humans enjoyed wine, cocktails and English treats prepared by chef Graham Dodds. Those on paws competed for prizes in their Brit-inspired costumes and enjoyed special wag bags.

Rates for the “WAGS” package start at $210 per night. The offer can be booked online or with rate code “WAGS” at 214-520-7969. (While you’re at the hotel, be sure to try the food at Central 214. It doesn’t disappoint. Scotch eggs, anyone?)
