Guest Pet and Service Animal Agreement
When you’re traveling, almost nothing makes you more homesick than being away from your beloved four-legged companion. But when you stay with us at stayAPT, we want you to feel like you’re home. That’s why we invite you to bring your pet with you when you travel. So when you come “home” to your suite at the end of your day, your furry soulmate will be waiting for you.
stayAPT Suites understands pets are an extension of your family. We gladly welcome our guests traveling with small pets. There will be a $25 non-refundable pet charge per day per animal with a maximum of 2 animals and up to a maximum of $150 per stay for each pet. This fee will not apply to service animals. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, a service animal is defined as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. When necessary, staff may ask a guest who represents that their dog is a service animal the following questions:
- Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
- What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?
