Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants will no longer offer goldfish as a friend to its hotel guests after complaints from the activist group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
The boutique hotel chain, owned by InterContinental Hotels Group, one of the largest hotel companies in the world, has discontinued the program in which it offered goldfish to guests as companions.
It was a popular perk among guests of the hotel chain, but PETA considered it abusive to the fish.
“We partnered with PETA to humanely re-home the goldfish from the handful of properties where the Guppy Love program was active” says Faith Yi, a spokeswoman for Kimpton.
“It’s been beloved by guests over the years but there’s always an ongoing evolution to our amenities and programs.”
She says that Kimpton will “find other creative ways to delight our animal-loving guests and we remain as pet-friendly as ever.”
