The DeSoto Tail-Wagger Policy

Acceptance of Responsibility

The DeSoto will allow one dog up to 35 pounds per standard guest room under the following guidelines:

1. A non-refundable cleaning fee of $150.00, will be assessed per room. Cleaning fee will cover a comprehensive cleaning, including removal of dog hair or odor and carpet shampoo, post departure.

2. Additional charges may apply depending on damage or additional cleaning that is required. Fee will be assessed, guest will be notified and charged according to the discretion of our Housekeeping Department. If the hotel is unable to rent the damaged room due to needed repair, the registered guest listed below shall be responsible for the lost room revenue. Should you have a balcony room, dogs are not permitted on balconies for their safety.

3. Dogs must be on a leash at all times while walking within the hotel premises and must remain on the first floor. Dogs are not allowed inside food service areas or the pool deck. However, they are allowed on Edgar’s P&P patio for dining.

4. At all times, dogs must be under the supervision of the owner and shall not be left unattended outside of the guest room. Dogs must be in a crate when left alone in the room.

5. Housekeeping services must be scheduled in advance at a time when the dog is not in the room or when the owner is present.

6. If the dog barks, makes other noises resulting in cause of other guest complaint(s), The DeSoto reserves the right to have the owner take the pet to a boarding facility. Relocation of the dog will be at the owner’s expense.

7. Any injury caused by the dog to any guests or employees will be the responsibility of the individual signing this form and pet owner. In the event such injury should arise, The DeSoto nor MHI Hospitality, LLC will not be held responsible.
