We now have a new pet friendly hotel that offers Helping Hands’ Clients (traveling to us for pet surgery) a very special rate! Candlewood Suites Richmond-West Broad at 2100 Dickens Road is just five miles from Helping Hands. If you mention Helping Hands they offer a special rate (and waive the pet fee) as a courtesy to Helping Hands’ clients. They have no breed or weight restrictions and are cat friendly as well:)
All of the pet friendly suites are newly renovated and have a bedroom as well as a sitting room (both with flat screen televisions). They also have kitchens with everything you need, including a full-size refrigerator and a dishwasher.
The lobby level not only has a gym…
but a free laundry area as well!
The lobby also contains a Snack Bar that operates on the honor system, a selection of board games, and a business center with computers. When the weather is nice, you will find yourself enjoying the pet friendly outdoor patio area.
It has gas grills,
flat screen televisions,
fire pits, and comfy furniture (all pet friendly, of course).
While you are enjoying the lovely patio space you may want to purchase a local beer or wine from the front desk. If you are extra lucky, you may be helped by top notch Candlewood Suites concierge, (and very dapper fellow) Hunter!
If you do want to venture out, Hunter can direct you to the best Vietnamese food in Richmond at the nearby Mekong Restaurant (not pet friendly, so they will have to stay back at the hotel). If you enjoy craft beer, be sure and stop by The Answer Brewpub located just next to Mekong. While enjoying a beer from their selection of 56 taps, you can play a game of life-sized Jenga, play some Skee-ball, or put some quarters in an old school video game.
