Like many cities in Canada, Vancouver is very pet-friendly, with lots of off-leash areas, dog-friendly beaches, and open patios at breweries and restaurants. Many hotels in the city also offer accommodation for your animal companions. Check out these amazing pet-friendly hotels in Vancouver, bookable with Culture Trip.
“It’s a Heavenly Dog’s Life in Vancouver.” A dog-friendly hotel if there ever was one, at the Westin Bayshore Vancouver, the staff will treat your pet like one of the family. Guests can bring one dog per room free of charge, as long as they are a maximum of 18 kilograms (40 pounds). Your pet is made comfortable with the Heavenly Dog Bed®, as well as food and water dishes in the room. The Concierge team is available to make dog-walking or sitting arrangements or to suggest dog-friendly activities. Fortunately, the hotel is within walking distance to Stanley Park so that guests don’t have to go far for a scenic walk.
A member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group, the Georgian Court Hotel is a pet-friendly hotel in Vancouver just steps away from Rogers Arena and BC Place — the city’s two big sports and entertainment stadiums. With no weight limits, all dogs are welcome at the hotel in designated guest rooms. Dog biscuits, food and water bowls, and a blanket are available upon arrival. The friendly staff at the front desk can also help with information on the best nearby dog-friendly parks and beaches, pet-sitting services, and can even secure reservations for you at pet-friendly restaurants.
Located on lively Davie Street, the Best Western Plus Sands Hotel is a very central—and economical—pet-friendly accommodation option in Vancouver. There is a maximum of two pets per room, which can be dogs, cats, or even birds! Fortunately, there’s no size restriction and a small charge of $14 per night. Each pet receives a gift bag that holds treats, emergency food, waste bags, a toy, and a local dog park guide. Dog beds and towels are available by request too. Other great amenities at the Best Western Plus Sands Hotel include two restaurants, as well as a fitness room with sauna.
Known as Vancouver’s “Castle in the City,” this Fairmont hotel will treat you and your pooch like royalty. Fairmont properties in Canada are well-known for having canine ambassadors that greet guests in the lobby. Ella is the ambassador at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. For $25 CAD per day, guests and their pet receive a welcome mat, dish, delicious handmade treats, a toy, and a pet activities information sheet. The same pet-friendly policy is in effect at other Fairmont hotels in Vancouver too, such as Fairmont Pacific Rim.
Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront truly is your home away from home. Amenities—besides being pet-friendly—include hotel cars, hotel bikes (seasonal availability), a pool, a fitness room, and live music events at the on-site P2B Bistro & Bar. At $35 per stay, pets at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront receive a deep clean, food bowls, and a plush memory foam pet bed. Ensure you select the pet-friendly package when booking your accommodation through the hotel’s website.
Hyatt has an unbeatable reputation around the world. Fortunately, that has extended to allowing pets in their lower floor hotel rooms (for easy outside access) at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver on Burrard Street in downtown Vancouver. Dogs must weigh less than 23 kilograms (50 pounds), but two dogs are allowed as long as their combined weight is under 34 kilograms (75 pounds). There is a $100 fee for the first six nights, and pets receive a bowl and dog bed.
The Loden Hotel loves animals. They support the SPCA through various charitable efforts and even used past rescues in their promotional images. Four-legged friends, both big and small, are welcome at The Loden Hotel. There is a $45 per pet, per stay fee. The goodies awaiting your pet at the hotel include a plush bed, bowls, homemade dog biscuits, a dog walking map, a sanitary kit, and even a copy of Modern Dog Magazine. They can also arrange dog-sitting services as well. Your dog will love the hotel’s Coal Harbour location.
Hotel Blu is an inexpensive pet-friendly hotel in Vancouver for visitors on a budget. For just $30 per stay, one pet is allowed in a guest room. At check in, pups will be given a special welcome package, which includes a treat, comfy bed, a bowl, and an information pack on city pet by-laws and pet-friendly areas. Hotel Blu’s welcome treats come from a local pet store named Bones, which is conveniently located two blocks from the hotel and stocks healthy, natural products.
Named one of the five trendiest hotels in the world by TripAdvisor, OPUS Hotel is a stylish property with two bars/restaurants on-site. They also welcome pets of all sizes, for a one-time $30 fee. Each dog receives a bed, bowl and treat, and staff members are even periodically available to take them for a break free of charge. The hotel’s Yaletown location is quite handy as well. The off-leash Coopers Park is only two blocks away, and Barking Babies is around the corner, so your pet can pick up a souvenir too.
Enjoy one of Vancouver’s best attractions alongside your pooch at Granville Island Hotel. For $25 per night, your pet can come on vacation with you. The hotel encourages dogs to be under 23 kilograms (50 pounds). Their pet-friendly rooms include tiled floors for easy cleanup and a balcony for pets who prefer the outdoors.
