“Don’t forget to give everyone two room keys”
I wanted to know where the hotel gym was, so I decided to ask the short guy. As I walked up to the desk, I was greeted with a welcoming smile from the employee.
“HAI, HOW CANZ I HALP YOU!?”
I could tell something was up, but I couldn’t put my finger on it, so I just went ahead and asked him if he could tell me where the gym was.
“GYM? OK LET ME CHECK THE COMPUTERS”
Right around the time the shorter employee left his position at the desk and started chasing a ball around, I figured it out – the employee was actually a dog! I asked the human employee about getting Mr. Eko an interview, but he kindly explained that no, the dog did not actually work for the hotel. As it turns out, this clever pup managed to escape from the room while his humans were out, and he was found exploring the third floor. The staff managed to corral our little friend and kept him safe and happy until his humans came back.
There are a number of ways Hotel George could have handled an unfortunate dog jail-break maneuver, but I was particularly impressed with how composed and caring their response was. At the Hotel George, both you and your dog are definitely in good hands.
“COME BACK SOON!”
Eko and I will be walking downtown today, and taking a trip over to Arlington, VA later this afternoon. If you are near the Shirlington Dog Park, stop over later this afternoon (around 4) and say hi.
