Best Pet Friendly Hotel (2016)


A family vacation isn't complete without your four-legged friends, but finding pet-friendly accommodations isn't always easy.

  • Aloft Asheville Downtown

    Asheville, N.C.

    There's never a fee for furry friends at Aloft Asheville Downtown, where pets are treated to a bed, food and water bowls, a goody bag and a rooftop puppy path, perfect for a quick walk without leaving the hotel. The hotel has partnered with Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue to find homes for foster dogs, so guests will find an adoptable dog in the lobby daily. Asheville's French Broad River Dog Park lies just 3 miles away.

Puppy guests have access to the 1,200-square-foot Mario's Playhouse – a temperature controlled facility complete with doggie runs where pets can play – and the off-leash Paw House Park.
