Want To Explore NYC With Your Furry Friend? Here Are 5 Pet-Friendly Hotels
Some people love their furry friends so much that leaving them behind isn’t an option. While it isn’t possible to bring your dog everywhere (unless it’s a service animal), you won’t have much trouble finding pet-friendly accommodations in The Big Apple.
New Yorkers love dogs, and this is evident in the number of doggy gyms, grooming studios, and dog parks. Other kinds of pets have a following, but dogs are the obvious favorite.
Book a stay for you and Fido at one of these five hotels.
Kimpton Hotel Eventi – Chelsea, Manhattan
This Chelsea hotel makes its enthusiasm for your pup clear with the greeting, “All paws welcome.”
There are 292 guest rooms and suites. They are comfortable and tastefully decorated to ensure that you and your dog have a memorable stay. Your dog will be treated to a water bowl in the room and a concierge list of pet-friendly restaurants and other establishments. Special beds are even available on request.
As an area, Chelsea is very dog-friendly. You’ll both enjoy a nice walk on a summer day.
Wall Street Hotel – Financial District, Manhattan
If you thought luxury and pet-friendly couldn’t mix, you’d be quite wrong. As you might expect of anything in the Fi Di district, it’s not cheap.
Unfortunately, your dog can’t be left alone in the room or go to any of the restaurants on site. However, they can enjoy access to a doggy bed, water bowl, and toys.
Expect to pay a pet-cleaning fee of around $150, as well as an additional cost in the event your pet damages the room.
The William Vale – Williamsburg, Brooklyn
This vibrant, ultra-modern hotel offers views of Manhattan across the water. From the comfortable bedding to the artwork mostly done by Brooklyn-based artists, The William Vale is a nice base for out of towners and locals looking to do a staycation.
The hotel offers a pet package. This includes a bone from District Dog, a bandana from The Foggy Dog and a pet bed from Purple. Your furry friend is bound to feel as at home as you are!
Williamsburg is full of pet-friendly businesses. Enjoy a pint at George and Jack’s Tap Room, which welcomes pets. For some exercise, take your dog for a walk in McCarren Park or Domino Park.
The Tillary Hotel – Downtown Brooklyn
This chic accommodation is ideally situated within walking distance of the restaurants and other businesses of downtown Brooklyn. There are 174 rooms with, and the $25 amenity fee covers Wi-Fi, fitness center access, and Fiji water bottles in your room.
If you can leave Fido in the room for a few hours, grab a drink at the rooftop bar which faces Brooklyn’s skyline. The restaurant offers croissants and market-style snacks.
The Empire Hotel – Upper West Side, Manhattan
The Empire Hotel will gladly welcome you and your dog. For an additional cost, you have the option of booking a VIP Pet Package so your pet can really enjoy the special treatment. This includes the Empire dog bed and organic treats, among other things.
It’s worth noting that you’ll find a lot of dogs along the Upper West Side, especially as you move closer to Central Park.
