We know that pets become family members, which means they’re always welcome at The James. Inspired by this belief, we’ve teamed up with Shinola Detroit, Sophie Gamand and local shelters in each of our communities to celebrate all the ways pets enrich our lives.
Shinola Detroit: Known for handcrafted products made by American artisans, Shinola provides pet amenities for our four-legged guests including size-appropriate doggie beds, colorful leashes and collars created in collaboration with renowned photographer Bruce Weber and a selection of toys.*
Simply let us know you’ll be traveling with a pet and we will furnish your room with these special items. We’re also happy to offer food and water bowls, organic treats upon arrival, pet-friendly food from signature restaurant, David Burke Kitchen, maps of local dog parks, and arrangements for daycare, walkers and sitters. Follow Shinola at @shinola.
Local Pet Shelters: We believe in building no kill communities in our cities, which is why we’ve partnered with Animal Haven in New York and PAWS in Chicago. For every pet that stays with us, we’ll make a donation to these organizations to support guaranteed life. Follow them at @pawschicago and @animalhaven.
Sophie Gamand: Sophie Gamand is an award-winning photographer, author and animal advocate. She has won several prestigious photography accolades for her work, as well as advocacy awards for her dedication to animal rescue and adoption. Sophie photographed the dogs in our pet images at The James New York – all adoptable from Animal Haven. (That’s Macchiato, Tea Pea and Jack pictured above.) Follow her at @sophiegamand.
*Shinola toys available on request. One time $75 pet cleaning fee applies.
