Best pet-friendly hotels in NYC
You and your pup can sleep in style at this swanky, warehouse-inspired boutique hotel in the heart of SoHo. The brick 11-story building garners your attention upon first glance, and maintains its allure via curated art displays, a drawing room, and a serene terrace bar. Arguably one of the trendiest blocks in Downtown (Kelly Ripa lives there, after all!), Crosby Street is conveniently nestled between the East and West sides, making morning strolls with furry companions to either Thompkins or and Washington Square Park a breeze.
This luxury Kimpton property welcomes pets no matter the weight, size or quantity with—wait for it!—no extra charge or deposit needed. And that’s not even the best part. For those days you’re too busy painting the town red to take your pooch on a stroll through Bryant Park (located just four blocks away), an on-call concierge will arrange for a personal dog walker or pet sitter in your absence. Cue happy music.
From the first sip of Rosé (handed over upon check-in—yup!) to the indie screening you can casually pop into at the end of the night, it’s hard not to fall in love with this Tribeca hotel. That goes for pets, too. The Roxy will hook little guys up with organic treats from Bocce’s Bakery as well as plush bedding, gourmet food, water bowls... and doggy bags (obviously!). Plus, the property’s sister hotel, Soho Grand, is just a five-minute walk away and welcomes Roxy guests and their four-legged pals to play in its private dog park equipped with fire hydrant water stations, benches, and a slew of playtime-ready pups. Don’t have a pet? The Roxy will lend you a goldfish to keep you company during your stay.
Once known as the Hotel Beverly, this architectural gem has been putting up New York City visitors since 1927—and it's gone to the dogs ever since. The hotel partnered up with New York-based monthly pet treat subscription service BarkBox for its goodDOG program, offering furry guests a stellar welcome package—tailored to the size of your dog!—for $60 a pop ($10 of which goes towards a no-kill animal shelter). Think everything from vet-approved treats, toys, and hygiene products to a collapsible water bowl, paw wipes, and plastic bags for walks around town. If that’s not enough, furballs curl up in a Mungo & Maud bed, next their own mini-bar stocked with goodies from Bocce’s Bakery and non-alcoholic Bowser Beer. A stay here is proof all dogs really do go to heaven.
Just give The James a heads up you’ll have a fluffy plus one, and your room will be decked out like a doggy-dog paradise. Aside from Shinola Detroit handcrafted products, this includes a doggie bed as well as a collar, leash, and toys; accommodations also come standard with water bowls, organic treats, pet menus (doggie bag, anyone?) and a map of local dog parks. If decide to venture out solo—or prolong sunset cocktails on the stunning rooftop pool bar—the hotel has you covered with doggie daycare, walkers, and pet sitters.
Upon the first paw step in the SoHo Grand’s glamorous lobby, four-legged guests will be treated like bonafide rock stars throughout the entire—and completely free—stay. The rooms on their very own pet-dedicated floors are loaded with organic snacks from Bocce’s Bakery as well as bedding, food and water essentials. But the real gem is the hotel’s private dog park—accessible to Roxy guests too!—outfitted by creative urban landscape designer Rebecca Cole. The lush garden and bespoke benches are so serene, it’s possible you forget this isn’t a human park.
The fact that this hotel hosted the Best in Show winner for the 2016 Westminster Dog Show should really solidify its canine haven status. If not, perhaps the VIPaws Pet Program will do the trick. From signature amenities and services to even discounts on neighborhood pet products, the program also includes all food, water, and walking supplies, an oversized Jax & Bones pet bed… and even a mini-set of stairs for your companion to easily cozy up next to you in bed. (Because you know that’s going to happen.)
As the host hotel for the Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show that takes place right across the street at Madison Square Garden each year, it’s no surprise Hotel Pennsylvania welcomes dogs and cats of all sizes with open arms. In fact, it gives the term “pampered pets” a whole new meaning with its signature Dog S’paw, offering a full range of services including bathing tubs, grooming, and fitness area where we can only hope Downward Dog puns galore are made.
Don’t let the $100 pet fee deter you, the Gansevoort makes it rain luxury on your fur baby with a slew of artisanal dog treats from Lord Jameson, food and water bowls (with, ahem, FIJI water), a monogrammed mat with your pet’s name, and a collar that reads “I am staying at Gansevoort Park Avenue”. Yep, good luck trying to bring your dog back to a non-diva reality after this lavish stay.
Located on the city’s posh Park Ave, Loews Regency Hotel is a luxury option for man and his best friends alike. No need to pack pooch-friendly toys, cat scratching posts, beds, or even travel-size litter boxes (if that’s a thing?), the Loews Loves Pets has it all covered and then some. And when it comes to food, humans won’t be the only one fancy feasting. An in-room pet menu features gourmet meals prepared to order by chefs and licensed vets.
Animal guests at Eventi are treated as VIP (that would be Very Important Pets). Complimentary amenities for furry companions include a bed, leash, serving bowls, and doggy bags for strolls around Chelsea; pet sitting, grooming, and walking services are all readily available. But the real standout is the signature massage and acupuncture session tailored just for your pet. Because obviously your dog leads an extremely stressful life.
Have a spoiled rotten pup on your hands? You’re hardly alone. Treat it to the life it’s become accustomed to with an extravagant stay at The Surrey. Ask the concierge to direct you to one of the many pet-friendly establishments in the area; then unwind at Canine Styles where pooches can receive a full canine makeover (all services and products are 15 percent off for guests). You will, however, have to pay $150 pet cleaning fee per stay. But it’s totally worth it.
