Traveling with Fido, my dear Foodies and Winos, never fear, we have you covered for some wonderful dog-friendly accommodations that will delight both your travel plans and your pups. We took the question to facebook and the results flowed in.


A number of luxury hotel brands worldwide are dog-pet friendly:

Kimpton Hotels Pet Policy is quite vast. Seen left are Dugan and Barclay, First Pet Guests to stay at Hotel Monaco, Baltimore. the pups have also been guests of Hotel Monaco, in Old Town Alexandria, their mama Lisa S. S reports!

The website is clearly open-minded to any guest in your family. It reads

OK, we admit it. We have an animal attraction. Can you blame us? At every Kimpton boutique hotel, we invite you to bring your furry, feathery or scaly family member — no matter their size, weight, or breed, all at no extra charge. If your pet fits through the door, we’ll welcome them in. There’s more to our pet-friendly policy than just a no-fuss check-in and scratch behind the ear, though. We’ve got all the goodies you need to keep your pet pampered. Plus at certain properties our Directors of Pet Relations are on hand (or paw, as it were) to give you and your buddy a tail-wagging welcome.

Almost all Sheraton Hotels & Resorts locations welcome dogs as guests into their hotels, in accordance with local health codes. These hotels pamper pooches with luxurious custom pet beds and other amenities, such as floor mats, food bowls, ID tags, and more. All guests checking in with a dog will receive a ‘welcome kit’ to include information on nearby areas for exercise and other goodies to help make traveling with your dog more enjoyable.

Some hotels may require an extra per-night charge and/or a deposit. There is a weight limit of 80 pounds though dogs exceeding the weight limit and pets other than dogs may be accepted into the hotel at the General Manager's discretion and should be confirmed before arrival. Pet owners will be responsible for their canine companions and for any excessive damage they may cause and you will be required to sign a pet waiver upon check in. Dogs may not be left in guest rooms unattended at any time for the duration of their stay. Individual hotels may also have additional restrictions.

In order to determine the Pet Policy for an individual hotel, please visit the Customer Assistance Center and enter the Hotel Name or City in the search field. Pet Policy will be listed under the 'Contact Us'.
