Short Stay: Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel, Flushing, N.Y. – Review

Pet-friendly hotels have become a thing, so we wanted to see if they live up to our expectations. Since I don’t own a dog, I borrowed one from FBT Editorial Director Jonathan Spira, who was happy to let Snickers get the pampered pooch treatment for a night.

After picking up Snickers the Wonderdog, I drove to downtown Flushing and pulled into the Sheraton’s private parking garage, where the garage attendant had a friendly greeting. “Checking in?” he asked. He immediately rang for a bellman who unloaded the car while Snickers and I went to the reception desk in the elegant Oriental-style lobby.

Checking in with a dog requires a bit more in terms of formalities as the hotel asks those with four-legged guests to sign a waiver and agree to limit where the dog goes, such as not into restaurants and the like.

The bellman escorted me up to my room, which turned out to be someone else’s based on the open suitcases and strewn clothing. He invited me and Snickers to wait in the Sheraton Club (even though technically, dogs are not allowed) while he went to get a new room for us. The lounge attendant was very welcoming to Snickers as well and we enjoyed a light bite there while we waited for an unoccupied room.


My Club Guest Room was on the top floor and done in elegant earth and grey tones. The view of downtown Flushing looking towards the airport was pleasant.

Sheraton’s Signature Bed, thanks to its plush pillow-top construction, was quite comfortable – in fact, Snickers decided it was more comfortable that then Sheraton dog bed that the hotel thoughtfully provided him with, along with a Sheraton logo-emblazed set of water and dog food bowls.
