MANDARIN ORIENTAL, MIAMI, FLA.

Top dog Elliott, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and his able assistant, Milu, a Biewer Yorkie, strut around the modern hotel offering holiday candy to younger guests. Escorted by a human staffer, Elliott and Milu greet little fans at the front entrance and are also available for walks around the property, or to play fetch on the lawn.
Celeb Guests: Jennifer Aniston and her late Corgi-terrier mix Norman lived at the hotel when she filmed Marley & Me. Other guests include Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, David Caruso and Eva Mendes.
