Pet friendly hotel chains vary when it comes to what they offer their four-legged guests. Some really go above and beyond, with pet programs featuring a whole host of amenities and services that cater to their pet guests. Here are hotel chains that have programs designed especially for their furry clientele!

Kimpton Hotels

At Kimpton Hotels, pet guests are treated to soft pet beds while they are visiting, along with food, mats and water bowls. Pet parents receive a concierge list of pet friendly things to do in the area, and a door hanger to inform other guests and hotel staff that a furry family member is in the room. When taking the furkids out for a walk, Kimpton makes it easy by providing complimentary clean-up bags. And when the day is winding down, the fun is just beginning! Kimpton Hotels offer evening wine receptions where pets can join their humans to interact with other four-legged hotel guests. As a side note, pets of all types and sizes are welcome, and best of all, they stay free!

Loews Hotels

Loews Hotels greet their furry guests as soon as they walk in the door, with treats, water bowls and placemats provided at check-in. They also provide extras for those human travelers who are packing light. These include litter boxes and scoops, cat scratching posts, pet beds, pet toys, as well as collars and leashes. Extra amenities include maps of the best places to walk dogs in the local area, courtesy clean-up bags, and a list of nearby pet-related services. There are even room service menus that cater to pets, with gourmet dishes from on-site executive chefs!

Aloft Hotels

Just say “ARF,” and Aloft Hotels will answer the call! These modern, hip and unique hotels charm four-legged travelers with their Animals R Fun (ARF) program. They realize that animals are family, too, so the pampering starts right at check-in. Dogs are welcomed with a special pet bed, bowl, scrumptious dog treats, and toys to use while they’re visiting. What more could a doggie ask for?

Canopy by Hilton Hotels

The Canopy by Hilton Hotels locations offer their “Paws in the Neighborhood” program to “pamper your pets as much as you!” Furry family members are welcomed with a gift bag containing toys and treats, as well as a listing of local dog friendly places to visit. When staying on the hotel property, four-legged guests enjoy planned doggie gatherings, and the pet friendly rooms have comfy dog beds, as well as food and water bowls for added touches of home. Canopy by Hilton Hotels is a newer pet friendly hotel chain, with current locations in Dallas, TX; Portland, OR; Washington, DC; and Bethesda, MD. More properties are set to open soon, which will please even more traveling pets!

Westin Hotels

Pampering pooches is a top priority at Westin Hotels! When pups arrive, they are welcomed with a doggie welcome kit that includes dog treats and a list of pet friendly things to do around town. Dogs also receive snuggly pet beds and extra perks such as food bowls, floor mats, identification tags and much more!

W Hotels

These luxury hotels pamper their human and pet guests alike! The Pets are Welcome (P.A.W.) Program at W Hotels begins with a welcome gift to greet four-legged guests. This includes toys, a special W Hotels pet tag, clean-up bags, and a listing of pet services in the local area.
