As part of our commitment to provide the highest level of service to our guests, The Essex Resort & Spa welcomes dogs staying with their owners in designated guest rooms. The Essex does charge a $150 non-refundable cleaning fee per STAY - Dogs will receive a  welcome bag with a dog bowl, dog toy & poop bags as well as a dog bed in the room if your pooch would like one. This fee will be added to your reservation upon check-in and is nonrefundable.

To ensure a comfortable stay for all guests of The Essex, we have developed the following guidelines for pet etiquette:

  • Please note that your dog should not exceed 75 pounds, and there may only be one dog per room. 
  • Your dog must always be on a leash or in a kennel and you may not leave your pet unattended at any time.
  • Health Department regulations require that your dog is not permitted at any time in any dining outlets, pool areas, Spa, or Fitness Center. Dogs are welcome on the patio of The Tavern by entering from the gardens. 
  • We ask that you be courteous and responsible by always cleaning up after your dog. 
  • To ensure that other guests of the resort are not inconvenienced by noise, we ask that you always keep your dog quiet. Each complaint of noise received will incur a $100 disturbance fee. If our Team is asked to contact you more than once as the result of your dog making noise, we will assist you in making arrangements for your dog to stay at an offsite boarding facility for the remainder of your visit. The non-refundable pet fee will not be refunded once the pet has been in the guest room. 
  • Please contact the Front Desk to schedule Housekeeping Service at times when your dog is not in the room. 
  • The resort, parent company, agents and team will not be responsible for any liability involving your dog with respect to property damages, injuries, or any other incidents.

Pet Friendly Guest Rooms: There are a limited amount of designated pet friendly guest rooms located on property. Select pet friendly guest rooms are thoroughly cleaned and treated for potential allergens. Rooms are based upon availability.

Service Animals: With appropriate documentation, service animals are not be subject to a daily pet fee but must abide by applicable pet etiquette guidelines.
