The Most Dog-Friendly NW Hotels

Don’t want to leave Fido behind on your next family vacation? You don’t have to. We survey seven places that love your pup as much as you do.

August 1, 2012

Provenance Hotels, whose six properties include two in Seattle and three in Portland, recently rolled out a revamped pet program unlike many we’ve seen. The new pet-friendly amenities include rooms equipped with pet beds, bowls, treats, a toy, and your book of choice from the Doggie Spiritual Menu (Dog Massage, The Intelligence of Dogs, The Holistic Dog, or Best Hikes with Dogs in Washington). Plus, dogs now get their own specialized room service menus. At Tacoma’s Hotel Murano (pictured), for instance, pets can choose between ice pups (grain free frozen meat treats), carob and yogurt dipped cookies, and a variety of stews (salmon and wild rice, beef and bison, or pork and sweet potato). Don’t worry, there’s plenty for you, too, in the Lobby Bar or at Bite on the fourth floor.

Pet Fee: $45

There’s a difference between hotels that allow dogs and hotels that encourage them.

Plenty of places will let you stash your pooch in the room (on a leash and practically muzzled) … for a fee. But only a few places welcome Fido with open arms—and special doggie treats, cozy pet beds, massages, and even Reiki. Yes, we said Reiki.

Find out which ones in our slide show.
