Sydney has a boutique hotel for doggo sleepovers

Olivia Gee

If you’re fanging for a luxe Sydney staycation but can’t stand to be separated from your loyal woofer, there’s now a very adorable remedy for your predicament. Ovolo Hotels have just introduced specialised dog-friendly rooms where you and Buddy can live it up enjoying room service and ultra plush bed linens.

Bring your four-legged best mate to either of the hotel group's Sydney venues – the ultra-mod Ovolo 1888 at Darling Harbour or the very chic Ovolo Woolloomooloo – and for $80 on top of your standard room rate, you’ll get a pup-ready room with a fancy doggie bed, food and water bowls, chew toys and even healthy dog treats. There’s a limit of two canine occupants per room, but they’ll throw in some doo-doo bags for when you’re playing tourist on your city adventures.
