If the classic beach vacation is calling your name this summer, then this dog friendly resort on the Southern California shores is a great choice! All Loews hotels are pet-friendly and have thought out every detail of your stay and your pet’s, too!
Lowes Coronado Bay Resort is especially perfect for pet parents because it views the many amazing attractions of San Diego from your pet’s perspective. Expect to receive all the information you need about pet-oriented services and attractions in the nearby area.

Did we mention that Fido is also treated to a gourmet room-service menu? Now you can splurge in luxury with your furry friend by your side, which is the best way to do it.
And the amenities for pet parents are pretty great, also. Spas, pools, tennis courts, sauna, on-site dining services—San Diego is great and all, but you might not want to leave the resort!
Do you like California, but consider wine country to be more your speed? Well, now you can bring your furry friend along for all your wine country adventures when you stay at the Bardessono Hotel & Spa.
The location is an obvious plus, with tons of attractions and possibilities for tours and long days spent enjoying local vino under the California sun. But the hotel’s Pet Passionate Program will cater to your pup’s every need on-site.
Upon check-in, your pup will receive their complimentary package of a pet bowl, pet bed, and waste baggies. While you’re dining on the best Napa Valley has to offer, your pet will also have access to the Canine Delectables menu, which is available both in the on-site restaurant or for room service.
Don’t want your pup to miss out on the fine drinking experience of wine country? Bardessono makes sure to offer pup-friendly drinks, too, such as their special ZinfanTail and Beefy Brown Ale!
Bardessono does charge a pet fee of $150, but for all the amenities, the experience will be more than worth it!
Even the name alone is promising, isn’t it? If you’re looking for an experience straddling the fence between rugged and pampered, then this Montana pet-friendly resort is perfect for you and your pooch!
Nestled in 37,000 acres along the Blackfoot River, this resort will make you feel like you’re staying in your own private national park. There are extensive hiking trails and endless possibilities for you and your active pup to discover together!
Even if you and your pooch are an on-the-go kind of duo, this resort offers lots of luxury options. In-room spa treatments are the perfect way to wind down at the end of a long day of wilderness adventure.
The luxury extends to your furry friend, too! Your pup will receive a special collar, bed, tennis ball, an assortment of locally-made treats, and even a welcome letter from the owner’s dog, Coco.
The Resort at Paws Up is truly one of the highest-ranked pet-friendly destinations in the nation. For a $50-per-night pet fee, you can see for yourself why pups and their people rave about it!
If you enjoy vacationing close to the coastline but prefer a slower, quieter experience than you’ll find on the West Coast, then take a gander at Inn by the Sea! This luxurious, historical East Coast-front escape offers old-world charm suited to you and your pooch alike.
Settle into the New England seaside experience with amenities that cater to you and your furry friend’s needs. Here, you can book a massage experience for your dog to enjoy alongside his complimentary food bowl, beach towel, and L.L.Bean dog blanket. There are even nightly treats with the turndown service!
Your dog can also enjoy the gourmet pet menu right alongside you at dinner time at the on-site seaside deck or fireplace lounge. During certain times of the year, the pool is even closed to people and open exclusively for dogs!
Inn by the Sea also partners with local shelters to foster rescue dogs and help them connect with guests who could provide them a home. In all, the inn has helped place over 120 pups in their fur-ever homes! That’s a great cause to get behind. Plus, there are no pet fees.
If you’re eager to bring your pup along on a much-needed international vacation, consider Le Bristol in Paris! This hotel truly offers the absolute lap of luxury for you and your dog both.
You’ll have access to a host of amazing attractions and activities in the heart of historic Paris. During your stay, you and your pet will get the absolute Parisian luxury experience, but don’t take it from us—the hotel’s resident cat, Fa-Raon, who has his own apartment, can vouch for the elegance and pet-friendliness of this hotel!
Your pet will get the chance to sleep in a hand-crafted pet bed with a matching embroidered mat. He’ll also be showered with accessories all customized with his name to help him feel right at home in your suite.
While you’re enjoying the finest dining Paris has to offer, your furry friend will, too! Chilled Evian water in a silver bowl, treats monogrammed with the hotel crest and your pet’s name, and even a pet room-service menu complete with grilled steak— Le Bristol spares no expense when it comes to treating you and your pet to the complete Parisian experience.
