Things to keep in mind when traveling with your dog:
It’s always helpful to read hotel reviews on Google and Yelp to learn what other guests traveling with pets have to say about their experience. Bring Fido is another great resource for getting more insight into what the hotel experience was like for dog owners before booking.
Understand the policies for bringing a pet to the hotel. These can include restrictions on where dogs can be in the hotel, whether they can be left unattended in the room or the time limit to be left in the room, additional cost if there is damage to the room or hotel, and leash expectations.
Keep in mind that just because a hotel allows dogs in the room, doesn’t mean they’re allowed at hotel amenities, such as dining areas, lounges the pool, or fitness centers.
There may be a restriction on the number of dogs allowed (many only accept one dog), the weight limit, and the breed.
Hotels may require proof of vaccination, so it’s always a good idea to have that on hand.
Don’t forget to pack the essentials, including up-to-date ID tags, pet first-aid kit, current vaccination record, water, food, treats, toys, a leash, and a familiar blanket from home.
Rover also provides helpful suggestions on how to safely bring dogs to a hotel.
These Denver hotels welcome dogs, but there are plenty more that are also dog-friendly. Pet policies, including restrictions and costs, can change, so it’s always best to confirm with the hotel.
