Planes, Trains and Automobiles? We’ll take the latter.

The more I think about it, our Summer travels are primarily road trips. Maybe it’s because we tend to drive South to go to the Outer Banks (NC), at least twice a year, or up North with a trip to Martha’s Vineyard or somewhere in the New England area. Last year we missed out on a few Caribbean trips so if there is time left this Summer, we may take one final trip that involves flying – where in that case Kenny will board with his groomer or a family friend. It has become apparent that when traveling with Kenny it is ideal that we travel by car b/c it is the least expensive and for us, more comfortable.

So starting with our Memorial Day weekend trip down to the Virginia Beach/Outer Banks area, I was challenged to search for a nice hotel that accommodates and/or welcomes pets. I hit the jackpot in Chesapeake with W Hotels’ newest ‘vision’ line – Aloft.

Aloft Hotel - Chesapeake

Aloft Chesapeake is a bold new hotel featuring loft-inspired designs in Virginia’s vibrant Hampton Roads region. We tend to stay in between VA Beach and the Outer Banks so that we are able to enjoy the boardwalk of VA Beach and both beachfronts and with the pet policy (they are welcome with no extra fees) we are loving this hotel!

My 2 cents? The Aloft Chesapeake is absolutely perfect for us dog owners! A very cool hotel with the “W” feel. Our dogs are treated as guests with their own treats, upon arrival, substantial walking grounds all around and poo bag dispensers on property. As for us? Aloft is located near the Greenbriar Mall, the yummy Joe’s Crab Shack (get the crab nachos), has decent sized rooms and great Bliss products in the bathroom!
