Some pet friendly hotels do not charge extra for pets. But many charge either a per stay or per night pet fee. These fees are usually non-refundable.
A deposit, on the other hand, will usually be refunded if your pet does no damage.
HotelGuides provides information about non-refundable pet fees, but not about refundable deposits.
Some hotels are dog-friendly only. Cats are not allowed.
Most hotels will expel dogs that bark and disturb other guests.
Many hotels restrict pets to smoking rooms or to a limited number of "pet rooms."
All hotels should allow service animals. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, which regulates the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), "People with disabilities who use service animals cannot be charged extra fees, isolated from other patrons, or treated less favorably than other patrons."
We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the pet related information in our city guides, as some hotels change their pet policies and fees frequently.
But we will be happy to call a hotel to check its current pet policy. Just call us at 1-800-916-1392.
To make sure you don't have a problem when you check in, briefly describe your pet or pets in the "Special Requests" box near the bottom of our online reservation form.
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
