You’ll have to choose between all-night revelling on the hotel’s panoramic rooftop, and spending quality time with your pooch at the Andaz. Although this popular West Hollywood landing spot imposes a negligible one-time pet fee ($25), the catch is you can’t leave your pet unattended in the room. But that’s a fair price to pay to get to have Fluffy along for the ride at this snazzy hotel, once the hardest partying spot on the Sunset Strip. The 239-room hotel sits in the center of the Sunset Strip’s nightlife scene and pays homage to its history with decorative touches (contemporary art and vintage images of its famous guests) throughout the modern-designed rooms and lobby. The sunny lobby restaurant RH features a seasonal menu of California-French cuisine.
L.A. life is pretty sweet if you’re a dog. Between dog-friendly beaches, restaurants with outdoor seating, and hiking trails like Runyon Canyon, there are a million ways to keep your best friend’s tail wagging as you explore the sights. L.A. is so pet-friendly, in fact, many hotels keep themselves stocked with dog beds, treats and litter boxes, knowing full well that a good percentage of their guests are showing up with a whiskered plus-one. In fact, some hotels are so excited to welcome your four-legged friends, they’ll waive the pet fee altogether.
