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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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!
The Westin Philadelphia
For a stay in a modern hotel with fantastic amenities, look no further than The Westin. Your airy room will include a coffeemaker, minibar, and TV, plus you can add Wi-Fi and breakfast for additional fees. Amenities like the fitness room, jogging maps, a sauna, and workout gear you can borrow will keep you feeling fit. After getting your sweat on, dine-in at Winthorpe & Valentine, which serves an eclectic menu (currently operating as take-out only due to COVID-19). This stay only works for dog owners, as cats are not permitted, but if you have a pup or two, it’s a great deal. There is no pet fee and you can have two dogs who each weigh up to 55 lbs. per room.
Airbnb Bi-Level Apartment
If you like doing your own thing, you should rent this luxury bi-level apartment, where you and your pet will have private access to the whole place! This includes Wi-Fi, a kitchen, a patio, and laundry. If you’re bringing a car, there is a garage with paid parking across the street – but otherwise, there is plenty of public transportation nearby. The Airbnb is stylishly decorated, with a luxurious marble bathroom. The host, Patrick, is an experienced Airbnb Superhost and has earned fantastic reviews for the apartment’s central, walkable location and its cozy, beautiful design.
Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia
Bringing more than your pet along with you? A fun place for families to stay is the Kimpton Hotel Monaco. This hotel makes a point of being super family-friendly by providing kids with welcome gifts and animal print bathrobes! A stay here will be very comfortable for adults in your party, too, due to their babysitting services that will give you an opportunity to take a little break. 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. The concierge will be able to recommend pet-friendly activities around the city and you can borrow a pet bed, bowls, or mats to keep your pet comfy in your room! And at check-in, you just might be greeted by Tank, the hotel’s canine Director of Pet Relations.
