10 Best Pet-Friendly Hotels for a Palm Springs Vacation with Your Furry Friend



If you like to travel with your pet, Palm Springs is a destination to put on the top of your travel list. The desert is welcomes furry friends with open arms-- especially dogs. Pooches are pampered at a number of local boutiques and spas, dine with their owners on the city's most iconic restaurant patios and are a regular sight on some of the city's local hiking trails. Dogs are also welcome at VillageFest, an outdoor night market held every Thursday in downtown Palm Springs.
 
As such a pet-friendly destination, many local Palm Springs hotels do much more than welcome your pet with open arms --they'll pamper your best friend, too. Hotels like the La Quinta Resort offer doggy massages, while properties like the Ace Hotel & Swim Club offer an onsite dog park. The staff at the Viceroy are also available to walk your dog or pet-sit when you need to leave your pet at the hotel. And at the Hyatt Regency Suites, your dog will enjoy wholesome, home-cooked meals through the hotel's Fresh Fetch program.
 
Here are the 10 best pet-friendly hotels in Palm Springs.
