Traveling with your pet can be a hassle at times, but touching down in a canine-crazy city like Seattle should come as a welcome surprise to weary travelers simply wanting a place to crash with their pooch. With the pet-positive attitude here, it’s easy to find an enjoyable, low-stress experience at many of Seattle's friendly hotels. (Forget about securing expensive kennel reservations and worrying about whether your pets will get the attention and care they need.)
A couple of low-frills, near-airport examples include the Residence Inn Seattle South / Tukwila and the Homestead Studio Suites Seattle South center Tukwila. More lavish digs accepting of pets include all the Kimpton Hotels, the Sorrento Hotel downtown or the waterfront Edgewater Hotel. Any of these and numerous other pet-friendly hotels offer everything you and your pet need for a comfortable stay. Many offer services such as pet sitting and dog walking, while some even provide directions to parks and trails on their websites, as well as recommendations for nearby boutique treats and pet wear.
The Kimpton Hotels are famously accepting of furry friends; many even have their own four-legged "Directors of Pet Relations" who greet guests at the front door. Other perks range from pets being able to join the nightly complimentary wine reception to hotels providing amenities and extras like plush pet-bed loaners for the guest room plus food, water bowls and mats.
