You would be surprised just how many hotels allow pets! I've got a list of over 50 in front of me!
My breed of choice is usually in the those stupid blanket breed bans, I know how you feel! But I carry my dogs records of their CGC's, other titles, obedience classes taken and passed, show titles, vaccinations, and other proof they are good dogs if I need to fight "breedism". It really does help. I feel like a salesman, but every little victory counts when it comes to helping stereotypes. It doesn't hurt two of mine are therapy dogs and love people.
Back in college I thought I would have a hard time finding a place to live with that breed of dog, however, I was so prepared and very serious about my dogs I always had my pick of places to live due to the work I did before hand to sell myself and my particular animals (not that breed, I made it more individualized than a blanket statement)
I bet Labs are banned simply because they are overbred and the most popular breed in the US and as a result more Labs come into their hotel than any other dog. So stats speaking, Labs might cause more damage or frustration among guests but if they would look at the numbers I bet you Labs aren't causing more trouble than any other dog group. I am sorry you have to put up with such nonsense that is not fair for them to group your dog in with all other dogs, every dog has the potential to tear things up and be destructive. But those dogs can just be in a crate while owners are gone and that would help. I bet they lose a lot of money and people banning Labs. Sorry you had to deal with that! It doesn't make much sense
