( Working from home amid the pandemic taught us that any amount of stress can easily be reduced simply by snuggling with our pets. And these furry friends, likewise, have been so used to having you around that you can't even go to the bathroom alone. Staycations aren't an excuse to leave them behind either as The Bellevue Manila in Alabang is now allowing pet dogs, cats, and fish to tag along. Their pet-friendly policies started on February 1.

A one-time pet fee of P4,000 is required per pet for a maximum of three nights. A succeeding night will have an additional cost of P2,000. The pet fee is on top of the guest's incidental deposit of P3,000 per night.

Pet owners are expected to clean up after their pets at all times. Plus, make sure to avoid any damage to the room, such as stained bedding and carpet and scratches on furniture and floor.
