Here are the 10 best dog-friendly hotels in America for humans and furry friends.
Bobby Hotel – Nashville, TN
If there were ever a hotel that loved dogs, it’s the Bobby Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. They even have their own pup, Sasha, who they adopted from a local shelter. Rooms come with balconies, which are awesome for sniffing the air without roaming far from home. Your dog can expect a special chew treat upon arrival, and don’t be surprised if they beg for some gourmet dog food from the room service menu. You can even walk over to Riverfront Park’s dog park to play with other pups during the day.
Montage Palmetto Bluff – Bluffton, SC
In South Carolina’s Bluffton, Montage Palmetto Bluff offers a natural and luxurious respite for US explorers — dogs included. Luxurious beds, a toy gift, custom-baked treats and a menu created especially for them are what family members traveling to Montage can expect—and that goes for pets as well. Montage understands that pets are part of the family, and most Montage Hotels & Resorts embrace four-legged guests, going beyond simple pet-friendly rooms with custom canine experiences. The property itself spans 20,000 acres, giving you plenty of opportunity for walks with your pup. Local restaurant Buffalo’s allows pets, too. Bring up to two pets of whatever size, shape or breed and pay a one-time $100 fee.
