The Kimpton Cardinal

dog friendly hotel

A few weekends ago David and I decided to have a getaway weekend to Winston-Salem, NC. This part of the country is gorgeous and we love traveling to different cute towns nearby. Nobody said a vacation has to be to Fiji. I think the closer getaways are just as much (dare I say more) fun because they aren’t as stressful since they can be spur-of-the-moment decisions. And they aren’t as expensive, which leaves more room in the budget to splurge on other things……….. like champagne, and food, and longer stays. Oh, AND Nilla gets to come 🙂 So duh – it’s a win, win, win. We stayed at the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel and it was the most dog friendly hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Dog treats abounded for Nilla Billa and she was treated like a queen the whole time by all the staff. I was treated like a queen too, though, since there’s a free wine and cheese hour every day in the lobby. Yes please!

As I’m writing this David and I are watching Blank Check. Do y’all remember that awesome 90’s movie!? When David and I toured the Kimpton Cardinal hotel we both agreed that the lower level of this hotel is straight out of that movie. There’s a bowling alley (I was sore the next day from bowling), a pin ball machine, basketball court, shuffle board, and my favorite…….. a slide from the top level to the bottom level! It was so much fun playing and relaxing at the Kimpton Cardinal. Their mini bar was stocked with Veuve-Clicquot and their Seersucker robes are lightweight and cozy. David and I spent one day all day in them and then walked downtown to “the porch” for some drinks on the patio and cornhole as the sun went down. It was a perfect way to spend a relaxing weekend.
