Where To Stay

Miami Pet-Friendly Hotel Guide

Yes, tomorrow’s #NationalDogDay—prepare for a barrage of puppy pix in your Instagram feed. 

As a dog owner and frequent traveler, myself, I know there’s a lot to consider when it comes to traveling and your four-legged friend, from airline and kennel fees to hotels and their various pet policies. 

Fortunately for dog owners today, more hotels are pet friendly. Just keep the following in mind before you plan an all-out vacay with Fido:

  • Be prepared with vaccination and service animal documentation for front desk attendants.
  • Typically, maid service will not attend to your room while you have an unsupervised pet inside. Weigh your options between planning a nice long walk when housekeeping knocks or dealing with a dirty room. 

If you’d rather leave your pooch at home, Rascal’s a regular at the Alton Road Animal Hospital. We call it the Doggy Spa. Otherwise, here’s your guide to pet friendly hotels in Miami.
