Those of us with pets know it can be hard to travel. You have to arrange for a pet sitter, spend extra money paying them, stock up on food and supplies before you leave, and deal with guilt for leaving your furry friend behind.
One solution that works well for easy-going or adventurous is bringing them along with you! So, if you’re planning a trip to Boston and want to (or have to) bring your fur baby along for the ride, you’ll need accommodations that are pet-friendly. To give you a jumpstart, we’ve analyzed a few of the very best hotels and B&Bs in Boston that accept pets. All are highly rated and we’ve included a variety of options from budget-friendly to luxurious. Read on and choose the one that best serves your needs!
Kimpton Nine Zero
For the ultimate luxury experience, check yourself into the Kimpton Nine Zero. Luxurious amenities include sleek rooms, yoga mats and bicycles for loan, in-room spa services, free coffee and tea, and a nightly wine reception. And Kimpton Hotels go above and beyond when it comes to being pet-friendly. They’ll allow ANY pet that fits through the door, no matter the species, at no additional charge. And if you have a dog, the location couldn’t be better – it’s just one block from Boston Common!
If you’re looking for the cool factor (and traveling with a dog), look no further than Liberty Hotel. Once the National Historic Landmark Charles Street Jail, the now-hotel’s lobby still retains a look of cell blocks -wait ‘til you see the inside!

Other hotel features include an on-site bar called Clink, a 24-hour gym, seasonal yoga classes, and seasonal bikes for loan.
Traveling with a larger party than just your furry friend? A fun place for families to stay is the Hotel Marlowe, located in Cambridge right across from the incredibly kid-friendly Museum of Science. The whole family will enjoy borrowing boardgames, a GoPro or Polaroid for vacation snapshots, or renting kayaks, bikes, and strollers. A stay here will be luxurious for adults, too -you can use the in-room yoga mat and in-room spa services or hire their accredited babysitting service and then hit the fitness center or evening wine reception. As for your animal companion, there’s no limit to size, type, or number of pets and you won’t pay an additional fee. You’ll even get a water bowl delivered to your room!
For a quirky and fun stay, visit the Staypineapple Hotel in the vibrant South End of Boston near boutique shops, restaurants, and galleries.
