I don't recall seeing pets either although I'm sure it depends on the size of the pet. As for parking you can choose either valet or self park. the Zota is a FABULOUS place and the only place we would stay when in Longboat Key area. The entire staff was amazing, totally committed to the guest having a perfect experience....just a wonderful place to stay!!!
