Pet lovers who travel to Houston with their four-legged friends have another reason to stay at the chic, pet-friendly Hotel Derek in the heart of Houston’s Galleria: a portion of every pet deposit required by the hotel will benefit the Houston SPCA.

            Now discerning guests checking into the hip Hotel Derek with Bella, Lucy, Sophie, Sadie or Chloe can be sure their beloved Yorkie, Beagle, Poodle or Dachsund will enjoy a stay fit for a Grand Champion while helping the Houston SPCA give orphaned, abused and neglected animals a second chance at life.

            Pets at the newly renovated Hotel Derek, 2525 West Loop South at Westheimer, delight in the hotel’s exclusive Derek Loves Dogs amenity package including dog bowl, treats and a Hotel Derek bandana.

            “Intervening on behalf of nearly 50,000 animals a year and providing the most comprehensive array of animal adoption, shelter, rescue, rehabilitation and other life-saving programs and services in the Gulf Coast area takes the commitment and support of the entire community,” explains Patricia Mercer, Houston SPCA President. “Partnerships such as the one with Hotel Derek are vital to helping us continue our mission.”

            Not surprisingly, pet lovers say the most difficult part of traveling with pets is finding a pet-friendly hotel, according to the Third Annual Pet Travel Survey conducted by PetRelocation.com.  Those surveyed said they take one trip per year with their pet and 90 percent said they would change their original travel plans to better accommodate their pet.  Plus, 57 percent would choose to stay at a hotel because it allowed pets or is “pet-friendly.”

            “Our partnership with the Houston SPCA is an example of the all-new Hotel Derek’s culture to be conscientious of our role in the community and to give back to worthwhile causes,” explains the property’s General Manager Shawn Gracey.

            Part of the Worldhotels collection, a portfolio of four- and five-star hotels that have passed a rigorous selection process to meet exacting standards, Hotel Derek is surrounded by Houston’s most prestigious shopping, dining and entertainment venues; the upscale River Oaks and Tanglewood neighborhoods and Galleria-based energy companies.
