Pet Hotels in Memphis: Bring That Pooch on Your Next Trip

Memphis is an animal-loving city, and even the most chic of hotels offer pets a place to curl up with their owners while on the road.

Traveling with your pet can become a truly enjoyable experience at any of the pet friendly hotels in Memphis. The city offers ample green spaces for exercising and exploring, from Tom Lee Park downtown to Shelby Farms in east Memphis; the new Overton Park Dog Bark – called Overton Bark --  is a fun destination for dogs that play well with others. On any given weekend, there may be a dog parade or dog-themed special event. At the end of the day, recoup together in a dog friendly room at the historic Peabody Hotel, which offers sumptuous digs for both owner and pet. There are plenty of moderately priced hotel options in Memphis for pet owners, including the Drury Inn & Suites Memphis Northeast.

As with many metropolitan areas, there are leash and clean-up laws in Memphis and Shelby County. Do be sure to have your own supply of pet waste bags, as many public parks do not yet have this essential piece of pet equipment. Dogs must be on leash at all times in the city, especially in public parks.
