All Things Dog

Traveling with the Big Dogs

There's good news for people who want to vacation with their large dogs, but have been turned away by hotels with weight restrictions. Today, hotels that accept large dogs are actually edging out their "weight-conscious" competitors. According to a recent survey, 34% of traveling dog owners have dogs over 50 pounds. As hotels see the potential of this untapped market, they're adjusting weight limits to meet the growing demand for large dog accommodations.

Hotel chains that welcome large dogs

These are just a few of the national hotel chains that accept dogs over 50 pounds. Keep in mind that more and more hotels are adopting pet-friendly policies all the time, so it's smart to call your favorite hotel before you travel.

Loews Hotels (no weight limit)
Loews Hotels offers a standardized "Loews Loves Pets" program at the chain's 16 hotels across the US and in Canada. Well-behaved pets—with some breed restrictions—are welcome. The Loews program offers specialized services and amenities designed to make pets and their owners feel at home when traveling together.

Sheraton Hotels (80 lbs.)
All Sheraton hotels within North America will welcome dogs as guests into their hotels, in accordance with local health codes.

Kimpton Hotels (no weight limit)
All 39 properties of this boutique hotel chain accept dogs. They even have special packages for traveling pet owners.

Red Roof Inn (80 lbs.)
All Red Roof Inn hotels accept dogs. The chain attracts dog show attendees, as well as families and individuals traveling with their dogs. If you call ahead, they'll even arrange a convenient first-floor room for you.

Homestead Studio Suite Hotels (weight limit varies by location)
Pets are welcome in these hotels—with the exception of certain breeds. Check with the individual hotel location to see if your dog exceeds weight limits. In some cases, the hotel manager will waive weight restrictions.
