Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites by Hilton
If your trip is longer, Homewood Suites or Home2 Suites by Hilton may be the option you’re looking for. Featuring upscale apartment-style accommodations, these properties will become 100% pet-friendly in the US and Canada in early 2022. The room comes with a kitchen, so it’s easy to store pet food and medicines if needed.
Many facilities have pet bowls, treats, litter bags, and resources on where to go as you explore the destination with your pet. This includes pet-friendly local eateries, pet stores, parks, and vets. Hilton also partners with Mars Petcare, which provides online support for pet owners.
Unfortunately, there is a pet fee starting at $50 per stay. Prices and restrictions vary by location.
With limited locations, Virgin Hotels lets you bring your pet for free with no size or breed restrictions. Pet-friendly rooms, dog beds, food, water dishes, treats, and Virgin Hotel bandanas are available for your fur babies.
Virgin Hotels are located in Dallas, Nashville, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans, New York, Glasgow (UK) and Edinburgh (UK). Locations in Miami and Denver are also planned for 2025.
Also consider Staypineapple if you want a dog friendly hotel. Amenities include dog beds, treat cans, water bowls, and trash bags. There is a pet fee per night (varies by location), but you can book a Pup Plus One package that waives the pet fee through February 2023.
