You and your animals will be treated like celebrities at the Peninsula Beverly Hills, the only hotel to hold both a AAA five diamond and a Forbes Five Star rating in Southern California. While all animals are welcome, dogs will really feel pampered with monogrammed towels and a concierge service that can set up on-site grooming services like a puppy massage or a "pawdicure" (complete with nail polish). While you grab a bite to eat at one of the hotel's restaurants, your puppy can enjoy dinner on his hotel-provided plush doggie bed. The gourmet pet menu includes a doggie burger made with half-a-pound of beef, vegetables and "pooched" salmon with brown rice and vegetables. Rooms start at $670 a night with an additional $35 per night, per pet.
The most over-the-top hotel perks (think free Wi-Fi, personal butlers and sex toys on tap) might guide your vacation booking but what would you do if you could bring your pet along and have it revel in its own perks while away? These pet-friendly hotels across America will do just that: satisfy your craving for a relaxing time away without forcing you to leave your puppy (or cat, or pig, or parrot) behind. Gear up for a one-of-a-kind vacation by reading through our top tips for traveling with a dog (applicable to all pets) then pack your bags, load up your iPod with the best new songs out right now and visit the country with your BFF in tow.
