All animal lovers can understand how deeply pets become a part of the family. Going on a vacation isn’t the same without them. Luckily, several hotels spread around the US can help you out.
Find out about 5 of the best pet-friendly hotels from the east to the west and how you can spoil your pooch while you spoil yourself.
XV Beacon – Boston
Set in one of America’s best historic walking cities, XV Beacon welcomes you and your furry friends. But, of course, knowing that your dog is having just as much fun as you makes for a better trip, so with expansive parks and a list of all the local pet-friendly establishments, this is pretty much a guarantee.
On arrival, all dogs receive a personalized plate of peanut butter treats, and in the evening, they can enjoy a special dog-dining menu that offers room service or seating on the two-tier roof deck.
Although there is no set pet fee, a donation of $25 per stay is recommended. Rather than XV Beacon benefiting from this money, they donate 100% of profits to local animal charities.

Bobby Hotel – Nashville
Bobby Hotel took in Sasha, a rescue dog when it opened in 2018. They took her in until early 2021 when they found her a home where she could live out the rest of her days happily. In addition, Bobby has adopted a young pup called Hairy from the Nashville Humane Center, who currently lives at the residence as a playful lobby mascot. The hotel helps raise money for the shelter from where they were rescued.
As for guests’ dogs, each room has an oversized balcony to keep dog minds curious when owners try to have some rest time.
Each dog is also gifted with a Nashville-themed, hot chicken chew toy. In addition, pooches can enjoy a gourmet room service menu or accompany their humans on the rooftop lounge as they sip cocktails in a retro-styled Scenic cruiser bus.
There is no weight limit for pets, but each comes at an extra cost of $50 per pet per night.

The St. Regis Aspen Resort – Colorado
Home to St. Regis’s official ‘doggy social coordinator,’ Kitty the Bernese Mountain dog, your pet will always have a playdate. Dogs have their own room service menu here, including luxurious beef tenderloin and egg-white protein bowls.
During the day, there are plenty of nearby hiking trails to explore, or you can tire your dog out with a game of fetch in Wagner Park, just outside of the property. They also receive a nightly turndown surprise and a personal St. Regis dog bed to ensure the best doggy dreams.
The pet fee for the first night is $100 per room, then $25 for each additional night.
Andaz Scottsdale Resort and Bungalows – Arizona
In a city called Scottsdale, just outside of Phoenix, lies the pet-friendly haven, Andaz Resort. Boasting 23 acres of open greenery and winding paths, your dogs will never get bored of exploring. The property benefits from a single-story layout, each accommodation fitted with a private balcony to ensure plenty of space for you and your pup to spread out.
You can enjoy Dinner with Your Dog at mealtimes on the hotel’s restaurant patio with stunning views of Camelback Mountain. The doggie menu includes dishes such as Healthy Hound (specialty baked fish of the day) and Good Dawg (a flat-iron steak). From this, $1 of every dog meal goes towards a local pet shelter called Lucky Dog.
The best part is that there’s no pet fee whatsoever. However, there is a weight limit of 50-pounds for one dog and a combined weight limit of 75-pounds for two dogs. In addition, the hotel asks for three days’ notice if guests are bringing dogs.
Bayview Harbor Hotel – Maine
On Mt. Desert Island featuring Acadia National Park, with almost 150 miles of mountain life, carriage roads, and dog-friendly trails, Bayview Harbor is yet another doggy paradise. As you trek, you can enjoy stunning views of the scenic town, Bar Harbor, and the Gulf of Maine.
There are two ocean-level rooms specially dedicated to guests with fur friends. They are built with stairs leading directly from the private ocean-side decks to the hotel’s lawn to prevent owners from walking through the hotel every time their dog needs to stretch their legs. The rooms also come with a welcome pack full of goodies for each pup.
Only dogs under 40-pounds are expected, with a maximum of two dogs per room. Pet-fees are $50 per pet per night.
