Yes, there’s always the La Quinta, and it has breakfast donuts your dog will certainly enjoy, but if you want to be posh about it, try these luxury digs, places where a dog can lay her weary head right on the pillow, just like at home. The beds in these swanky joints are large enough to allow you on them, too.
Hotel Vintage Park (Seattle, WA): Total luxury in a hotel that makes the perfect headquarters for visits to local vineyards and wineries. …
The Mayfair Hotel and Spa (Coconut Grove, FL): They may not let Schatzie into the whirlpool, but you can put cucumbers on her eyelids as she snoozes on the perfect mattress in her private room.
Sassy Moose Inn (Jackson Hole, WY): Dogs of all sizes are welcome to size up the movie stars attending Robert Redford’s film festival nearby, chase beep-beeping roadrunners in the hills, or chew on a cowboy boot. …
Hotel Rouge (Washington, DC): If your dog is outgoing, this “adventurous” luxury hotel, located in the heart of the nation’s capital, will make him feel special. You and your dog can rub elbows at the hotel’s complimentary wine hour. …
Bretton Arms Country Inn at Mount Washington and the Town Houses at Bretton Woods (Bretton Woods, NH): You can bring your Irish wolfhound mix or a dog of any size to this wonderful retreat where two-,three-, and four-bedroom condos are available for two-night minimum stays (small dogs are accommodated in the Inn itself), country breakfasts await you each morning, and all meals are prepared by the inn’s gourmet chef.
