This home away from home is decorated in vibrant colors, chic furniture, and lavish hangouts. Thought it couldn't get better? No need to travel with a dog bed, or even doggy food dishes! The Monaco has you covered. The staff will make sure to get to know your pup by name because they are a VIP (Very Important Pup).
