TAKING a road trip with your four-legged friends? If you treat yourself to a night at any Ovolo hotel in Australia or Hong Kong, you can check your dog in too.

The pawsome deal is part of Ovolo's V.I.Pooch program. For an extra $80 a night, each dog-friendly room will be decked out with a plush dog bed, a no-mess eating and drinking mat, separate food and water bowls as well as a designer 'Doggy Bag' containing woof-worthy dog toys, healthy dog snacks and handy poop bags to bring along on walks, hikes and adventures all around town.

According to Ovolo Hotels Group founder and chief executive Girish Jhunjhnuwala, most hotels decline to welcome pooches to their properties.

"Dog-friendly rooms across Ovolo? Why not? Most decline to welcome prized pooches to their properties, particularly in Hong Kong, but we're not most hotels.

"We're thrilled to offer this unique perk to extend our ethos of effortless living. Trips are more fun with your best friend, so why put your V.I.Pooch in a kennel?

"Your furry friend can snuggle into their own bed and dig in to a special doggie bag curated just for them. It doesn't get more pawsome than that."

Up to two furry friends are permitted per room.

Ovolo Hotels Group now runs four hotels in Hong Kong, and six hotels across Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane.

Ovolo Hotels has also recently launched a new brand Mojo Nomad in Central which opened in September 2018, and in Aberdeen Harbour Hong Kong which opened its doors in December 2017.
