Dog-friendly luxury: Loews hotels

Loews Hotels & Resorts has fifteen properties sprinkled around the U.S. and two in Canada (Montreal and Quebec City). You’ll spend some money (in the $200-500 range per night), but you’ll be happy — the properties get consistently good ratings on TripAdvisor. And your dog will be happy too, because all of the Loews properties are dog-friendly:

All pets receive their own gifts including a pet tag, bowl and a special treat to start their vacation. Owners receive a detailed brochure with information on hotel pet services — such as our Loews Loves Pets room service menu, local dog walking routes, and area pet services, including veterinarians, pet shops, groomers, and much more. Additional items available for guests with pets include dog and cat beds (different sizes), leashes and collars (different sizes), rawhide bones, catnip, scratch pole, litter boxes and litter, pooper scoopers.

The highlights of Loews’ pet policy are as follows: There is a one-time fee of $25, only two pets are allowed per room, your pet must be leashed whenever she leaves your room, and you should be prepared to give the hotel proof that her vaccinations are current.

In the U.S., Loews has hotels in Annapolis, Atlanta, Denver, Lake Las Vegas, Miami Beach, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Diego, Santa Monica, St. Pete Beach, Tucson and Washington, D.C.
