These hotels that allow dogs (or iguanas, or pigs) do much more than simply welcome them—they treat your pets like family members, with customized amenities, off-leash areas, and even "yappy hours."
1. Park Hyatt Chicago, Chicago, IL
Dogs 50 pounds and under have free rein throughout the rooms, lobby, and library of this sleek, skyscraping hotel, as well as the garden of the hotel’s prized restaurant NoMI (with advance reservations). Don’t sweat the $100 pet fee—it’s donated in its entirety to the Chicago’s largest no-kill animal shelter, PAWS (Pets Are Worth Saving).
2. The St. Regis Aspen Resort, Aspen, CO
The exalted hospitality of the St. Regis brand extends to all four-legged friends at this popular Aspen outpost, where dogs can play fetch in Wagner Park just outside the property or go for a hike with their humans on one of the nearby trails. Come evening, dogs receive a daily turndown surprise and can snooze in comfort on their very own St. Regis dog beds ($25/day).

3. The Peninsula New York, New York, NY
Pampered pooches rule at this five-star legend, where they are welcomed with complimentary amenities galore: Peninsula-branded dog beds, bowls, arrival treats, and personalized water bottles. The more spacious suites, favored by pet owners, come with bonus goods like a Peninsula collar, leash, bandana, towel and toy.
4. The Lodge at Glendorn, Bradford, PA
This luxury lodge on the outskirts of Allegheny National Forest in northwest Pennsylvania welcomes pets in six of its 12 posh cabins for $75 per night: our favorite is the 1920s log-and-plank sided cabin, Miller Cabin. Dogs and owners alike will love the expansive surrounding forest, which can be accessed via wooded trails.
5. The Envoy Hotel, Autograph Collection, Boston, MA
Many hotels in Boston are pet-friendly, so it’s a dog-eat-dog world courting pet owners—yes, pun intended. The Envoy (which charges a $100 sanitation fee) has a competitive advantage, however: its location in the city's buzzy Seaport District. After a stroll along the picturesque Harborwalk, enjoy lunch at one of the many pet-friendly restaurants, and explore downtown Boston’s Greenway, a popular place to hang out in the summertime.
