9 Dog-Friendly Hotels In Los Angeles
It’s good to be a dog in Los Angeles. From dog-friendly restaurants to massive dog parks all over the city, pups live the good life here. For many of us, our four-legged friends are a package deal and that includes tagging along on our vacations.
While once a rarity, there are now tons of hotels in the city that are pet-friendly—places where not only are pets allowed, but they’re welcomed with open arms (and lots of treats). If you’re craving a vacation but don’t want to travel too far, put your pooch in the car and head out to one of these nine dog-friendly hotels in Los Angeles and the surrounding area.
1. The Venice V
This recently-opened hotel in the heart of Venice beach is a rare oasis amongst the lively boardwalk and iconic skate park. The boutique hotel has three unique style rooms—the bohemian, the soulful artist and the Dogtown skater—all paying homage to Venice’s culture and history. No matter which room you book, your pup will feel at home with everything they need: The hotel provides stainless steel food and water bowls, a food stand, a placemat and a super soft dog bed. Treats are plentiful at the front desk for your dog, and for the humans, room service from Great White (we love this restaurant) is available through the hotel’s partnership with them. The hotel requires a $100 non-refundable pet fee.
5 Westminster Ave, Venice, CA 90291
2. La Quinta Resort & Club
The La Quinta Resort & Club located about two hours outside of LA is great for any Insta-famous (or striving to be) pups. The florals throughout the resort against the mountain backdrop make for stunning scenery. The large property has acres of dog-friendly lawns and hiking trails, and their resort map even includes doggie relief stations. The resort offers the PAWS Canine Experience—this package includes stainless-steel food and water bowls, a placemat and dog-friendly door hanger and an oversized, plush dog bed. They’ve also partnered with PupJoy, a personalized pet subscription box service, that welcomes dogs with treats, toys and travel bowls. If you’re a Bachelorette fan, you may already know dogs are welcome, since Clare Carwley bought hers along when filming her season here. The resort charges a dog fee of $150 per stay.
49 - 499 Eisenhower Drive, La Quinta, CA 92253
3. Allegretto Vineyard Resort
When you think of wine country, typically Napa or Sonoma may come to mind, but we’re here to inform you that Paso Robles should be at the top of your list. This wine region has tons of wineries, many of them dog-friendly, and it’s only about three hours outside of LA. Choose to stay at the Allegretto Resort and you’ll feel more like you’ve traveled to Tuscany and somehow, your dog was able to come along with you!
Enjoy Allegretto wines at their tasting room and their on-site restaurant, Cello Ristorante & Bar, which even offers a dedicated canine menu. You can also relax by the pool or at the spa after taking your pup for a walk alongside their vineyard path or to the River Oaks Golf course path, which is accessible directly from the resort. Pet-friendly rooms offer direct access to the courtyard as well as complimentary food, water bowls and dog beds. The resort has a $100 non-refundable fee per pet for up to two nights and a daily $50 fee per pet will be assessed for each additional night.
2700 Buena Vista Drive, Paso Robles, CA 93446
4. The Peninsula Beverly Hills
If you’re looking for five-star service for you and your four-legged friend, The Peninsula is the place to stay. The luxurious rooms include custom doggie beds and towels, but our favorite part is that you as you relax in your robe and indulge in room service, your dog can do the same (dog robes are available for purchase). What’s on the menu for your pup? The signature “Pampered Puppy” menu offers treats such as the ‘Bow Wow Beef Burger’ and a ‘Hot Dog for the Top Dog.’ But the VIP treatment for Fido doesn’t end there—the Peninsula Pages are on-hand to walk your dog if needed and they even offer dog massages upon request. There is a $35 fee per pet per night.

5. 1 Hotel West Hollywood
The 1 Hotel located on the always bumping Sunset Blvd was recently rated TripAdvisor’s number one hotel in West Hollywood. From the sleek rooftop pool to their state-of-the-art gym, this hotel is an oasis amongst the hustle and bustle outside of it. The rooftop restaurant, Harriet’s, has some of the best views both outside and inside (if you and your BFF enjoy people watching). Happily, you don’t have to leave your dog at home as they’re welcome at the hotel, free of cost, up to two pets per room. The concierge team is available to advise you on all the local dog-friendly spots.
8490 Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA 90069
6. Hotel June
If there’s ever a reason to bring your dog along, this is it: With every pet stay, June will donate 10 percent of your pet fee ($35 per night for up to two pets) to Best Friends Animal Society. Your dogs will love the friendly staff with plentiful biscuits at the front desk and you’ll fall for the Baja-inspired pool and swim club. Only a five-minute drive from the hotel, take your dog for a romp at one of the best dog parks in the entire city—Bluff Creek Dog Park—where there are plentiful water stations and the park grounds are Astroturf and cement instead of dirt.
8539 Lincoln Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045
7. Hotel Del Coronado
This historic San Diego hotel located on Coronado Island is breathtaking. You can feel the historic significance of the resort, which dates back to 1888, yet enjoy the modern amenities and beautifully restored rooms. Your pup too will love the amenities which include treats upon arrival, water and food bowls, a Del dog bed and floor mats. Dry food can even be provided upon request and there is a dog room service option available as well. Be sure to visit the Coronado Dog Beach which is just one mile from the hotel. The entire island is completely walkable, filled with restaurants and shops your dog is welcome to visit along with you!

1500 Orange Ave, Coronado, CA 92118
8. Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows
Yes, the Miramar is located in that touristy part of Santa Monica that may or may not be your thing, but when you step inside the hotel, you immediately feel a sense of calm. Especially because you can bring your dog along for vacation here for no additional charge (every one of the guest rooms including the suites and garden bungalows allow for pups). Upon arrival Fido will be treated with Lucious Liver all-natural dog treats, a Molly Mutt dog bed and plush dog toys. For something the entire family can enjoy, bring your dog along to their outdoor Poolside Cinema Series where they are screening classic family films now through September. Bonus: The Miramar’s current package includes in-room breakfast for both guests (a $60 credit) and one dog.

9. Kimpton Shorebreak Resort
If you’re visiting the surf-centric town of Huntington Beach, the Shorebreak is right in the middle of all the action. It’s one minute from the Pier, a block from Main Street, and most importantly, a 15-minute walk to Huntington Dog Beach. The Shorebreak hotel loves dogs so much so that they encourage visitors to post on Instagram using the hashtag #ShorebreakPup. Your dogs are welcome throughout the hotel so sit back, sip wine by the fire pits and enjoy having your best bud by your side. Pets of all sizes are welcome without any additional fees with complimentary treats, dog beds and food bowls available.
