Savannah is known as the “Hostess City of the South,” and nowhere is that motto more evident than in the way the city treats its four-legged friends. From the constant stream of dogs frolicking in Forsyth Park to the many restaurants that welcome pets in their outdoor dining areas, Savannah is a city that prizes its pets. Even many of the city’s hotels open their doors to furry visitors, providing their animal guests with special accommodations. Planning ahead is essential when booking a pet-friendly Savannah hotel. Many hotels have a limited number of rooms designated for pets, and some require vaccination information upon arrival. With a little pre-planning, your pet will enjoy his or her vacation accommodations just as much as you. The ultra hip and affordable Thunderbird Inn is one of the most pet-friendly hotels in the city, boasting special beds and other goodies for visiting pets. The Kimpton Brice Hotel also greets its animal guests with a host of goodies to make their stay special. Those traveling with big dogs may want to consider the Staybridge Suites Historic District, which accepts pets up to 80 pounds. If you and your pet are looking for quaint accommodations, then be sure to check out the city’s pet-friendly bed and breakfasts, including the Foley House Inn, the Forsyth Park Inn and the Catherine Ward House. Several hotels outside the Historic District also have liberal pet policies, among them the Homewood Suites by Hilton Savannah and the La Quinta Inn Savannah Midtown.
