You should always have your dog by your side if you want to fully enjoy your get-away. It doesn’t matter if you’re headed to the big city or the great outdoors – as long as you know which dog-friendly resorts to stay at, there’s no reason not to bring your dog with you!
Not sure which dog-friendly hotel to book? (That’s a good, first-world problem to have!)
Here are five of the top dog-friendly places to stay within the United States.
1. The Ritz Carlton New York
It’s no secret that the Ritz in NYC is one of the best Big Apple hotels and high-end American hotels hands-down. This is a favorite hotel of many celebrities and their pups, and the staff does a great job of making everyone feel like they’re on the A-list, too.
You can trust your dog will get the top-notch treatment at this resort. They even get aromatherapy and homemade dog treats. Oh, and if there’s rain, there are plenty of Burberry dog coats available for rent.
2. Mandarin Oriental
Up next on the list is Mandarin Oriental. There are a few of these around the US, but the most dog-friendly are in Atlanta and Miami. Four-legged guests get the full treatment here.
They have their own dog bed and water bowl in their room and they get house-made organic dog treats upon arrival. The staff goes as far as to leave a doggy dental kit for each pet and an assortment of toys for the dog’s enjoyment.
3. The Little Nell
If you’re headed to Aspen anytime soon, (by the way, how’s your Aspen, anyway?) be sure to stay in The Little Nell. Dogs don’t just get treats when they arrive, there’s also a full dog menu for owners to choose from throughout theirs and their pet’s stay.
Valets are available to walk your dogs if you have a full day planned, or, you can opt to take your dog up the mountain with you on the gondola during the summer months. Either way, you can be sure your dog is going to have a great time!
4. Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe
Lake Tahoe may not pop out in your mind as one of the top celebrity vacation spots, but it’s actually a great weekend getaway for people who live in the Hollywood Hills. Tahoe is close enough to go last-minute and exciting enough that you’ll never be bored no matter what time of year it is.
As far as A-list pet treatment goes, the best place to stay in Tahoe is the Hyatt Regency. The hotel thinks of everything from easy access for dogs to do their business to welcome treats and puppy pillows.
5. Calistoga Ranch
Last but not least, Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley. This hotel sits on over 150 acres and it’s surrounded by forestry. It’s basically any dog’s dream!
There are plenty of trails for you to explore with your dog and a huge lake to splash around in (weather permitting). You get a glass of wine upon arrival and your dog gets their own bed, a bag of treats, and water bowls for the room. The coolest thing about staying at Calistoga, though, is the scent-and-search scavenger hunt created just for dogs!
