Just northeast of Boston Common, XV Beacon is positioned excellently with regard to neighborhood walkability. They sweeten the deal on arrival, too, furnishing a dog bed, bowls, and homemade biscuits, and be sure to explore their sitting and grooming recommendations for that little something extra. There’s even a “Dawgone” room service menu.
As befits the upscale brand, dogs here get Evian, house treats, and a posh bed, not to mention a chance to join concierge mastermind Parker the Pug on Instagram at #barkhyattchicago. Can’t beat the lakeside views on a brisk walk, either. The pet fee starts at $100, donated to a local no-kill shelter.
The puns just keep coming: there’s a Woof Menu, of course, and every day from 4 to 6 pm it’s half off for “Yappy Hour.” There’s a beach nearby for sandy paws and surf-loving Shar-Peis. And there isn’t a dog on the planet that wouldn’t love the lush stretch of lawn on which this Scandinavian-Hamptonian concern luxuriates. (Pet fee $25/night.)
L.A. pups live life a little differently. We’re talking PLATO organic snacks, luxe Max-Bone beds, ceramic bowls, and courtesy bags for when nature calls. The staff absolutely adores dogs of every shape and size, taking pains to foster a dog-friendly lobby lounge environment. That attitude extends outward, too: they’re more than happy to set up you up with a local guide to canine activities and establishments. All for the price of a $125 one-time registration.
Grand studio guests shouldn’t hesitate to spring for the Pamper Your Pet package, which entails full professional grooming, thrice daily walks, canine fine dining (we love this phrase), and a food and beverage credit for the owner. Chances are your dog will enjoy a scenic ramble through nearby Sun Park just as much as you.
One benefit of a chain as well-established as Kimpton is the robust pet program: not just beds, food, bowls, and mats, but an in-the-know concierge for all your boutique pet needs and a by-name invite to the nightly wine reception. Another benefit? The Miami Riverwalk Trail, which passes right by the hotel.
How does a Jean-Georges dog menu sound? Great? Thought so. As if that weren’t enough, there’s also a Woof Woof Kit — practice requesting it in a dignified tone — for $75, which entitles pup to a custom collar, leash, portable water bowl, and courtesy bags. The Upper East Side won’t know what hit it.
Meet Willi, the Golden Retriever VP of Pet Relations, a duty taken quite seriously around these parts. Your dog will enjoy a luxe bed, blanket, towel, designer bowls, and a toy to top it all off; Very Important Pets can also splurge on gourmet in-room dining, aromatherapy, walking and sitting services, comprehensive guides to the area’s pet-friendly sights (and smells), and spa sessions with an in-house Animal Communicator. (Pet fee: €35/pet/night.)
The illustrious list of pet concierges goes on: Paséa plays host to Lago the French Bulldog, naturally. The neighborhood is just as welcoming, with Pacific City and Top Dog Bakery offering a full suite of grooming and sitting services as well as a cornucopia of treats and wearables between them. That’s if you can get your dog to leave the beach behind. (Pet fee: $150)
Clearly these are dog people, completely smitten with any furry friends who darken their doorstep. Being situated right on the Willamette riverfront helps immensely in terms of doggy appeal, we must say. And if it happens to rain, as we’re told it occasionally does, we’re positive the snuggle factor is taken care of.
Again with the VIP (Very Important Paws) treatment, and we couldn’t agree more: a treat menu, welcome amenity, Royal Dog bedding, bowls, and plush towels all combine to elevate your pup’s experience. They’ll walk and pet-sit, too, though when it comes to beaches like this, you’ll want the VIP to take it all in right beside you. Ruffing it, indeed, for the paltry sum of $50/night.
Let these fine Parisians know ahead of time and they’ll treat your dog well, pun very much intended: beds, bowls, and bones should keep the barks to a minimum. In keeping with the neighborhood’s stylish, easygoing nature, strike up a conversation with reception to arrange for just the right combination of snacks, toiletries, or activity itineraries to exceed Fido’s expectations. (Pet fee: €20)
