If your dogs are part of the family, why not include your furry friend in this year’s family vacation? We’ve gathered a small selection of dog-friendly hotels that not only go above and beyond with dog friendliness, but include VIP (Very Important Pet) treatment through our exclusive industry relationships. When you’re ready to begin planning, we’d love to hear from you.
Rome Cavalieri, Italy
Welcomes dogs of any size for a fee of $40 per pet, per night
Contessa of the Cavalieri, pictured above, is the elegant resident daschund of Rome Cavalieri, a Waldorf Astoria property. Her refined taste has set high standards for pooch pampering, and like her, your pet will have nearly full run of the property. Pet guest services include a delicious doggy menu as well as dog walkers for personal training in the hotel’s fifteen acres of lush parkland. Don’t feel guilty about heading out solo for a spa treatment- your pet’s new best friend will take them to a nearby doggy spa (La Domus Aventina) for a shampoo, massage and stylish comb-out. When you’re ready for a refreshing cocktail, your canine companion is welcome to join you at the property’s stately Tiepolo Lounge & Terrace.
Private Perks: Complimentary upgrade, $100 resort credit, free daily breakfast and more.
The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park
Welcomes two pets up to 60 pounds for a fee of $250 per stay
Just like their esteemed humans, the special needs and requests of four-legged visitors are handled with enthusiasm and care at this luxury hotel overlooking Central Park. All rooms are considered pet-friendly, and The Ritz-Carlton’s Pampered Pooch package is guaranteed to make your dog feel like the best in show. Special indulgences include a bone-shaped pet pillow, aromatherapy, homemade dog treats, and even 22-karat gold plated ID tags. Our favorite part? On rainy days, both pets and their owners can borrow Burberry raincoats.

The St. Regis Aspen Resort, Colorado
Welcomes dogs for $75 fee per stay and additional $25 daily fee
At the idyllic mountain sanctuary that is St. Aspen Regis Resort, Kitty Jacob Astor II (the hotel’s new Bernese Mountain Dog puppy) has a very important job: to give warm welcomes to furry friends and their humans. Kitty’s unique name draws from the founder of the property, John Jacob Astor IV, who had a dog named kitty (and a sense of humor!) in 1904. As you enjoy your luxurious accommodations at the base of majestic Aspen Mountain, your pet will enjoy plenty of in-room amenities, including dog beds, copper bowls, custom food menus and more. For the great outdoors, take advantage of boots, hiking vests, and jackets for your pup. You don’t want miss Bark & Brew, a monthly fundraising “pawty” on the Mountain Plaza, that benefits Lucky Day Animal Rescue.
Private Perks: Complimentary upgrade, $100 food and beverage credit, free daily breakfast, and more.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills, California
