For those of us that love to travel, making sure that our pets are well taken care of can pose a challenge. If you’re not into boarding your pet, the only option is to bring him or her with, and for those lucky dogs, we’re compiling our favorite pet-friendly hotels across the United States. These properties welcome pets and often provide dog beds and bowls, but as you’ll see with some of our favorite pet-hotel, some amenities are over the top luxury for your canine companion.
Here in sunny Miami, we’re all about the pampered pet. The Mandarin Oriental will walk your dogs once a day for free and also offers access to trainers through their Play Date and Training Dates. Your dog will also enjoy his own bed and doggy turn-down service.
Surf’s up at the Loews Coronado Bar Resort. Known for their annual dog surfing content held in June, the Loews offers a pet program with a twist. Sign your dog up for doggy surfing complete with the whole surfer get-up. He or she will be hanging ten in no time.
The Ritz is known for unparalleled service and luxury and the same philosophy applies to your pets. Dogs at the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch can enjoy tons of space to roam and run, in-room massages, a special room service menu, and plush dog beds. Dog fees range from $25 to $125 and are donated directly to the ASPCA.
Specially made for city dogs, the Muse offers a doggy welcome package including treats, an umbrella, and even a dog mani-pedi for pampered pooches. Kimpton properties across the country are known for the dog-friendly policies and eccentric, boutique décor. Various Kimpton properties host doggy happy hours a couple times per week where dogs can enjoy treats and water while their owners opt for a more adult human beverage.
We love the the W Hotel in Scottsdale because of our shared love of “doga” or dog yoga. Dogs that stay at this property can get their child’s pose on, or opt for a more heart-pumping activity with their daily bootcamps.
