Loews' Pumped-Up Pets package // (c) Loews Hotels

Loews Hotels is asking travelers if they aren’t the only ones with a weight-loss resolution this year. If Fido ate too many table scraps over the holidays or is more flab than fur these days, the hotel chain is coming to the rescue with the Pumped-Up Pets package. The package, offered at 17 Loews hotels throughout the U.S. and Canada, is available through May 1 and includes a deluxe room, workout tips for both the guest and their pet, a Zisc dog Frisbee and a specially created and veterinarian-approved Scratch My Flat Belly meal for pets. As part of the Loews Loves Pets program, which began in 2000, each visiting VIP (Very Important Pet) can travel in first-class comfort with gourmet room service, specialized bedding, a pet amenity, and guest services designed to make pets and their owners feel right at home. Pricing starts at $124 per night and is subject to availability.
