Travel + Leisure- The Best Dog-friendly Hotels in the U.S.

BY Natalie DellaMura Blevens

Long gone are the days when traveling with your dog meant being forced to stay at roadside motels with stained carpets and questionable odors. Today, hotels at all price points are putting the “friendly” in pet-friendly by not only allowing dogs but pampering them as much as (if not even more than) their humans.

Sasha, the Bobby Hotel mascot, greets guests in this super-stylish Nashville lobby and helps raise funds for the shelter she was rescued from. Rooms come with oversized balconies offering views that will keep curious pups entertained when they’re not playing with their new Nashville-themed hot chicken chew toy or ordering gourmet dog food off the room service menu. You can even bring your pup up to the rooftop lounge, where you’ll sip cocktails in a retrofitted 1956 Scenicruiser bus. Riverfront Park dog park is within walking distance, and so is Broadway, the city’s main strip, filled with live music and an exuberant crowd of revelers who seriously love dogs.
