Beach, mountains, city, or wilderness — vacations are a relief and a ritual. Sometimes our vacations mean leaving our four-legged family member behind, which takes some joy out of the experience. Fortunately, some hotels not only allow dogs to stay with their humans, but offer pampering and love for your pup. Here are six dog-friendly spots that want you to bring your furry family member along for the ride.
1. Little Nell Hotel, Aspen, CO
Dogs enjoy a Puppy Jet Lag kit to help with adjustments to the altitude, a pet menu, dog walks & sitting, bowls, a bed, and their humans receive a guide to pet-friendly trails.
2. Moonrise Hotel, St. Louis, MO
Your pup will enjoy a signature Moonrise dog tag, a Moonrise pet bandana, a special bed, bowls, house-made treats, and access to over 25 pet-friendly retail shops and boutiques in the Delmar Loop.
3. Captain Jefferds Inn, Kennebunkport, ME
Dogs can take advantage of pet-friendly carriage rooms with doors leading directly outdoors, as well as personalized treats, doggie bowls, special sheets and towels, and access to nearby dog parks and leash-free beaches.
4. Firesky Resort & Spa, Scottsdale, AZ
Pups will arrive to see their names on a pet welcome board, and upon special request can enjoy Bosco’s Brew — a pet-friendly beer! Pet sitting and walking are also available, and a dog exercise area is nearby. A dog bed and bowls are also part of the package, along with grooming services and a list of nearby veterinarians, if needed.
5. Provincetown Hotel at Gabriel’s, Provincetown, MA
Dogs staying at the Provincetown Hotel will enjoy organic treats, dog beds, loaner leashes, bowls, and access to an adjacent dog-friendly park. Plus, Provincetown is known as a dog-loving town, with many stores allowing owners to bring their pets with them while they eat, drink, and shop. Dogs can also romp off-leash on beaches during the early morning and evening hours in the summer months.
6. W Hotel, Seattle, WA
The W offers a pet bed, complete with turndown service! Your pup can also enjoy special toys, pet sitting, walking, and grooming services. To top it all off, the executive chef creates “gourmutt” treats made with almond butter and peanut butter.
