Travelling can be a lonely experience.
But, fortunately, one thoughtful hotel has devised a solution to alleviate solitary nights in its luxury rooms.
The Nikko Hotel in San Francisco, California, allows guests to lend their resident canine, Buster, to make them feel loved during their stay.
Too cute: Buster - full name Buster Presutti Posey - can be lent by lonely guests in The Nikko
The four-legged friend, who has been a resident of the five-star hotel since 2015, isn't just a pretty face, though.
He also has a role at the boutique inn: Canine Operating Officer, which essentially means he's top dog at the pet-friendly hotel.
Buster - full name Buster Presutti Posey - can often be seen wearing fancy outfits as part of his duties, while also embracing internet fame.
He's currently the face of the hotel's Instagram account, which has amassed thousands of followers thanks to his photogenic nature.

Strike a pose: Buster gets ready for his close-up next to local landmark the Golden Gate Bridge
Some of the images show him posing next to local landmarks, such as the Golden Gate Bridge, while others show him enjoying the rooftop dog-run - thought to be the only one of its kind in the city.
One snap even shows the mutt posing on a lilo - complete with sunglasses - while enjoying a relaxing afternoon in the building's swimming pool.
However, if guests would rather bring their own animal, that's also allowed.
All dogs that check in receive dog beds, bowls and treats, while a modest surcharge of $50 (£36) is added to the room rate.
