Man’s Best Friend Meets Luxury: the Mansion at Judges’ Hill

published on November 18, 2011

Traveling to Austin, Texas? Did you know ranks Austin the 3rd most friendly city for dogs? But, don’t just bring Fido – escort him to a luxurious boutique hotel as committed to pet guests as to their owners: the Mansion at Judges’ Hill.

Located in the heart of Central Austin, this century-old architectural masterpiece is not only pet-friendly, but rich with style, elegance, luxury, and comfort. Janine Franceschi, owner of Pet-Friendly Accommodations Worldwide (PAW) travels all over the country with her 65-pound Irish Setter to review luxury hotels friendly to pets.

“One of the things that really stands out in my mind about the Mansion at Judges’ Hill is how genuinely pet-welcoming the entire staff was,” shares Franceschi. “Establishments that are genuinely happy and sincerely thrilled to welcome your pet-guest are few and far between, and you are so lucky to have one of the best here in Austin.”

The Mansion at Judges’ Hill also boasts the Judges’ Hill Restaurant and Bar, one of Austin’s best kept secrets when it comes to fine dining and wine. Take the savory fare out under the covered veranda and enjoy the relaxed sophistication alongside your favorite sidekick. Back at the room, your pet will be welcomed by his own hotel-provided porcelain food and water bowls.

The price of luxury? A mere fifty-dollar cleaning fee. Another plus – this hotel has no size requirements for visiting canines. As long as a Great Dane or Pekinese is current on flea meds and heart-worm prevention, she’s welcome at the Mansion at Judges’ Hill!
