Traveling with your pet can be stressful. Not only do you need to be concerned with travel gear and safety, but you also have to be sure that your pet is welcome wherever you stay. Hotel policies often vary widely, but there are some hotel chains that tend to be more consistently pet-friendly than others. I find that knowing which chains normally allow pets makes my travel planning much easier. I simply narrow my hotel searches to those chains and then check individual policies from there.
The following slideshow features hotel chains that have general pet-friendly policies, with my personal comments on those I have stayed at. While it is possible that any given hotel might go against the chain’s policy, these are all chains where you can be relatively confident that they will allow pets.
Be sure to check with the individual hotel that you are interested in to verify that they do indeed allow pets and to learn of any restrictions or extra costs. For example, it is common for hotels to charge extra per pet, limit the number or size of pets, and require that pets not be left alone in the room. Most will allow only cats and dogs, while some restrict cats yet permit dogs.
