Is there anything worse than leaving your furry friend home when going out of town? They’re our babies, best friends and shadows. So why not treat them to a getaway too. These six hotels not only are pet friendly, but they also offer up some great pup-approved amenities that make even us humans jealous. From a dog-friendly GoPro and bacon-infused water to velvet beds and custom-made tags, these stays are pawfect for dogs of all kinds.
The Eco-Aware Dog
Pups and their owners visiting one of Portland’s five Provenance Hotels can embrace the eco-friendly way of life. In partnership with Fido Friendly Magazine, the brand is offering four-legged friends in-room eco nap pet beds and dog toys from WestPaw Design, dog food from The Honest Kitchen, custom-made dog tags and in-room VIP (Very Important Pet) door hangers. They also have a list of nearby pampering pet resources, in-room pet massages, psychic readings, reiki treatments and pet spiritual menus which include things like pet psychology.
The Fit Dog
The Arrabelle at Vail Square
Tracking your steps to make sure you get enough activity in for the day? Do the same with your dog at The Arrabelle, where dogs can sport their very own Fit Bark, a Fitbit for Fido that tracks activity and sleep. Pups will receive one upon check-in while their owners will score a bottle of Henry Wine, a tribute to the first four-legged member of the Vail Ski Patrol. If one bottle’s not enough, additional Henry Wine proceeds will be contributed to supporting the raising and training of avalanche rescue dogs. Now that’s a cause we can get behind. And while you’re sipping that vino, your furbaby can curl up in its very own red velvet pet bed, embroidered with their name.
The Luxury Dog
The Pines Lodge, A RockResort
Beaver Creek, Colorado
If your furry best friend deserves to have it all (and don’t they all?), then treat them to the ultimate pup-cation with the Pines Pup Bucket List, complete with a map of top dog-friendly hiking routes, dog spa treatments, a nightly rawhide bone turndown, bed and leash, curated doggie menu, Vibram toys and branded bandanas and a custom dog toy to take home. The package also includes a GoPro and dog-friendly harness to take on a hike and capture everything from your pup’s point of view. Hike a beautiful trail before making your way to nearby pet-friendly restaurants to enjoy “yappy hour.” Dogs can also leave their pawprint in the doggie guest book before heading back home.
The Artsy Dog
the ART, a Hotel
Immerse your pup in the world of arts in Denver’s Cultural District. Treat your canine with water and food bowls, a comfy bed and dog treats before heading out on the property’s ART Run. The dog-friendly run comes with a curated map to guide you through all of downtown Denver’s best public art pieces. Upon return, your furry friend will be treated to bacon-infused water.
The Local Dog
L’Auberge de Sedona, A Destination Hotel
Hole up in a rustic cottage with Fido before setting out to explore the many creeks, canyons and attractions like Cathedral Rock that can be found around the area. The resort’s Red Rocks and Ruff package will treat your pup to a gift bag of Pet Pawducts from Whiskers Barkery, a L’Auberge dog leash and foldable food bowl, plus a goodie bag, dog bed and more.
The Aquatic Dog
Paradise Point Resort & Spa, A Destination Hotel
San Diego, California
If you have a water-obsessed dog then check in to this San Diego retreat where they offer dog life vests for water play and marina activities like SUP and kayaking. Paradise Point’s 44-acre island also has pet-friendly waterfront restaurants and gifts canines with signature dog treats, bowls of fresh water and more.
The Foodie Dog
Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa
San Diego, California
For those with a taste for the finer things, the Doggie Tapas menu at Rancho Valencia is sure to do the trick with favorites like shepherd’s pie, chicken of the sea, rin tin tin tartare, morning risers and barnyard chase. And to kick things off right, pet guests will receive a sampling of dog treats upon check-in.
