THE BEST PET-FRIENDLY HOTEL CHAINS
Of course you want to bring your pet with you on your next trip. Without them tagging along, the next road trip or family vacation will feel like it’s missing something. Thankfully, some businesses are happy to meet your furry friend’s travel needs. If you can’t imagine a family getaway without a certain (very important) four-legged family member, these are the hotel and resort chains with the most reliable track record when it comes to accommodating pets.
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts
Four Seasons offers luxury for you and your small dog or cat with amenities like pet beds, pads, and a very knowledgeable staff. Not every location is pet-friendly, but if you choose one that is, you’ll find a luxury chain especially adept at providing excellent customer service for both its two- and four-legged guests.
Klimpton Hotels are more than happy to accommodate any dog, cat, reptile, or bird you choose to bring with you. This decidedly animal-friendly chain offers great amenities like beds for your pet (or pets) and a directory of local businesses compiled with pet owners in mind.
With over 800 locations in the U.S., La Quinta is a reliable hotel chain for weary travelers and their furry companion; only four of their locations don’t allow pets. As an added bonus, there’s no extra charge for your four-legged friends.
Best Western, even with a low animal service fee, is bound to be your best value option when it comes to traveling with a pet. With over 1,600 pet-friendly hotels, it’s also the most convenient—a reliable stop for a road trip getaway.
Ace is one of the only major boutique chains to accommodate animals—though mainly dogs—at its few locations. While there are fees for bringing your pet, you don’t go to the Ace Hotel if you’re on a budget; expect excellent service and stylish digs.
Loews Hotels and Resorts
For a slight animal service fee, Loews Hotels and Resorts offer modern luxury for you and your pet. The chain, found in major cities across the U.S. and Canada, offers the usual beds, treats, bowls, and litter boxes along with unique services like a pet-friendly room service menu.
