GoPetFriendly.com’s recently released their choices for the top five hotels with the best pet policies.
The list is part of the Summer 2022 Hotel Pet Policy Guide, which includes pet policies at nearly 150 hotel chains across the U.S. and Canada.
GoPetFriendly.com, which has been advising pet owners on travel since 2009, researched hotel pet policies and ranked them, based on the criteria most important to pet owners, such as affordable pet fees and how many pets are permitted in a room.
The overwhelming winner as the Best Hotel Chain for Traveling with Pets is Kimpton Hotels, part of IHG.
Four other chains topped GoPetFriendly.com’s list:
1. Best Western Hotel Group, which charges a pet fee per room instead of per pet.
2. Red Roof Inn allows pets to stay for free.
3. Drury Hotels has a very clear and comprehensive hotel pet policy.
4. Extended Stay Suites provides a standard pet policy across all their locations.
GoPetFriendly.com also researched hotel chains in the U.S. and Canada to determine their pet policies to include in the guide so travelers can search for information about their favorite hotel and each chains’ rewards programs.
Good for them, although some of my traveling dog friends say Red Roof Inns are real dumps these days.
Word of mouth is really helpful when it comes to travel and where to stay and not to stay.
