When it comes to dogs, their owners, and vacations, there are a few schools of thought. Some people prefer to avoid the hassle of bringing a pet altogether, others look for hotels that are tolerant of their four-legged friends — and some want their mutts to live in just as much luxury as they are, and be pampered too.
Lucky for these last folks, this is the twenty-first century, and plenty of accommodation options exist to fit every need. Whether guests want their pets to have treats and water, comfy beds, or a spa treatment, there’s a hotel for everyone. The hospitality even extends outside of the hotel grounds, with staff members offering maps to dog-friendly eateries, events, and attractions. In some cases, employees will even take your pup for a walk, or at least provide the contact for dog walkers, sitters, and groomers.
Don’t worry about leaving Spot, Sparky, or Fido at home; he or she can still be your best friend, your copilot, and your travel companion on the next journey, as long as you stay in one of these 10 pet-pampering hotels.
