Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Baltimore Celebrates Fourth Annual Santa Paws Event with Furry Friends

BALTIMORE, November 26, 2012 – Back by popular demand, the pitter patter of little paws will be heard from coast-to-coast as pets both big and small make their way to Kimpton hotels nationwide to celebrate the return of Santa Paws.

Locally, Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Baltimore will play host to Santa Paws on Saturday, December 8 from 2 p.m. to  4 p.m.. During the holiday event, the hotel’s living room style lobby will be transformed into an animal’s winter paradise, offering pet holiday treats (human treats too!) and photo opportunities with Santa. Kimpton encourages its furry, four-legged guests and their human companions to bring their own cameras and smart phones to snap posed pictures to their heart’s content. In addition, keepsake print photos with Santa will be available for a donation of $20.00 with all proceeds going to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS.)

“We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with Hotel Monaco Baltimore to bring a greater awareness of BARCS and the important work with conduct in the community.  As you can imagine, this is a particularly challenging time of year so we appreciate the ability to raise much needed funds to help homeless or abandoned animals in the area,” said Joann Goldberger, Director of Development for BARCS.

While dogs seem to delight in Santa Paws the most with wagging tails at the ready, Kimpton’s Santa Paws is an inclusive and diverse event, welcoming all pets as long as they can fit through the front door.

Cuddly best friends shouldn’t have all of the fun! During Santa Paws weekend, as well as throughout the winter season, travelers can book the “Cocktails for a $1 More” promotion to delight in treats of their own. By paying only $1 more above the best available rate, guests enjoy two complimentary cocktails per night while staying at any Kimpton hotels.
