For anyone who takes great pleasure in traveling with their furry friends, we put together a list of hotels that treat your four-legged companions as valued guests and not merely tolerate them.
The criteria for creating this list include the hotel’s general pet policies, pet fees, access to main facilities, spacious areas for pets to play or walk around, and other essentials. These standards should make up for a comfortable and relaxing vacation that human and their furry friends deserve.
Although many accommodations claim to be pet-friendly, the hotels included in this list go above and beyond, providing welcome treats, water bowls, and even a comprehensive suite of pet amenities to their lovable guests.
