Top Pet-Friendly Hotels in the United States

When the lucky owner of the most incredible pet is planning a vacation, there are two things that can put a dampener on the sense of anticipation: not having anyone to leave their pet with (or not wanting to do so) or their chosen hotel not providing accommodation for people with pets. 

Today, we’ve got a compilation of pet friendly hotels in the United States, where your clients can stay with their pets.

A checklist for traveling with pets in the United States

If your client is planning on heading off on a journey with their pet, remind them to check all the required documents for the trip. 

When selecting somewhere to stay, pay attention to the rules of the accommodation: are there any weight restrictions? Do they require additional payment for accommodating pets (per day or for the entire duration of the stay)? Is housekeeping paid for separately? Do you need to pay a deposit in advance? Can you leave the pet alone in the room? (In such cases, pets are often required to be locked in a pet carrier.) What rules are in effect for animals in public places, and are there areas for walking them? What additional services are offered for animals?

On RateHawk, this information is specified on the hotel’s website in the “About the hotel — All Facilities and Services” section.

It is also important to observe the hotels’ rules upon arrival: don’t give your pet complete freedom in public places. Firstly, you need to respect other vacationers, and secondly, it could

result in a fine. If a mishap occurs, it is better to promptly clean up all traces of it and inform the hotel staff.

Dog-friendly hotel chains in the United States

Important: it is worth checking the pet friendly status of your chosen hotel chain and the rules for staying there, since they can vary depending on location and category. You can use the “Hotel chain” filter to find a hotel in a specific chain.

The Ritz-Carlton

Many Ritz-Carlton hotels are not merely happy to accept dogs, they even spoil pets with gifts, such as treats, a special menu, and even views from the window (in The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park, for example).
