A Life of Furry Luxury

Have you always dreamed of vacationing with your pet? You're not alone. More than three-quarters of traveling pet owners would take their furry family member on every vacation if they could, according to an AAA press release. Unfortunately, more than half of those survey takers reported difficulty finding pet-friendly hotel chains and accommodations.

Don't despair, though. There are plenty of dog-friendly hotel chains and companies out there. From luxurious to economic, here are the best pet-friendly hotels in America.

1. Kimpton Hotels

To start off our list of best pet-friendly hotels, we have a full-service hotel company that welcome pets with open arms. Kimpton Hotels has over 50 one-of-a-kind properties in major urban and resort destinations across the United States. Not only is each and every location pet-friendly with amenities like pet beds and complimentary nightly wine receptions where pets are welcome, but families with pets are never charged an extra fee or deposit.

Additionally, any size, weight, shape or breed of pet is accepted—feathery and scaly ones, too! 

2. Loews Hotel

The "Loews Loves Pets" program is an amenities smorgasbord for pet-loving vacationers. Those pet-centered amentities are what help to make Loews Hotels one of the best pet-friendly hotels in America.

Some of the amenities they offer for pets include a welcomes package with a pet bowl, dog tag and treats as well as special services like dog walking, pet sitting and doggie spa treatments.

Loews has even partnered with Banfield Pet Hospital to offer furry guests a complimentary examination and a 15 percent discount on services during their stay. Hotel guests pay a daily $25/pet fee.

3. Hilton

Even though Hilton hotels are known the world over, you may be unaware of their pet-friendly policies.

Over 300 properties are "pet ready" with bowls, placemats and travel totes filled with organic treats, bio-degradable waste bags and a travel-sized bottle of deodorizing disinfectant. Fees and policies may vary, so call ahead before booking a room. 

4. La Quinta Inns & Suites

La Quinta has over 700 pet-friendly locations from coast to coast.

Cats and dogs up to 50 pounds are allowed in guest rooms with no fees or deposits required. However, you must be present or your pet must be crated when rooms are freshened up by the housekeepers.

5. Extended Stay America

With over 680 pet-friendly properties and 5 brands to choose from, ExtendedStay Hotels offers plenty of options to make their hotels some of the best pet-friendly hotels in the US. 

There is a limit of up to two pets per room as well as a $25/day pet fee and a non-refundable cleaning fee (not to exceed $150/pet). Contact the hotel directly to ask more about specific weight, size and breed restrictions.
