Sitting pretty on the banks of the vast Lake Okanagan in British Columbia, the city of Kelowna is a paradise for pets, with many an adventure waiting on your doorstep. Vineyards and mountains frame the metropolis, while the calm lake rolls out beyond. If you’re looking to treat your four-legged friend to a pawcation, we’ve picked out the best pet-friendly hotels in Kelowna – bookable on Culture Trip.

The Royal Anne Hotel, for the sauna

Set in the heart of downtown Kelowna, steps from the waterfront promenade – perfect for morning walkies – and the shimmering expanse of Lake Okanagan, the Royal Anne has a friendly, homey vibe. Pets are welcome here, and will feel right at home in the burgundy-hued bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows. A free buffet breakfast (for humans) includes home-made muffins and as much coffee as you can drink, so you’ll be fuelled up for a day of exploring all the Kelowna attractions. When you return, a session in the sauna will help you unwind.

Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort, for its waterfront location

The waterfront location makes the Grand Okanagan Resort one of the most sought-after stays in Kelowna, and not only for people – the boardwalk and nearby beach are ideal for pooches looking to stretch their legs. Work on your tan by the pool, sink a glass of local chardonnay on the sunny terrace or take away snacks from the Cannery Marketplace for enjoying on the go. After an adventure-packed day, the epic, two-bedroom Grand Okanagan residences – complete with a fireplace, balcony and whirlpool – are the perfect place to curl up with your pet.

Hampton Inn and Suites Kelowna Airport, to be near the airport

On a flying visit to Kelowna? If proximity to the airport is important, hotel locations don’t get much better than the Hampton Inn and Suites Kelowna Airport. The property is located moments from the runway, but it’s still close to the great outdoors if you fancy stretching your legs. The Quail Ridge Linear Park is just around the corner, with a network of trails to investigate. If you have time to kick back and enjoy the hotel, there’s an indoor pool that’s the perfect place for an early-morning dip.

Comfort Suites Kelowna, for an epic pool

Besides its pet-friendly status, there’s one big thing that draws families to Comfort Suites Kelowna: the epic indoor pool, complete with water slide. Children and teens can easily fill an afternoon here while you sneak off to use the exercise room or take the dog for a stroll around nearby Ben Lee Park. If you’re traveling with a creature that sheds a ton of fur, there are laundry facilities available to help keep your wardrobe looking fresh.

Hyatt Place Kelowna, for longer stays

If you have a pet that you think would appreciate a stylish stay, book them into the Hyatt Place Kelowna, a contemporary gem of a place just east of the main downtown area. The rooms are flooded with natural light thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. If you’re in town for an extended stay, choose one of the larger one-bedroom pads with kitchens so you can prep dinner for yourself and your pet with ease. Alternatively, once you’ve put your pet to bed, the airy Placery Bistro and Bar is a top spot serving up everything from vegetable spring rolls to cocktails.

This property is set right on the waterfront-hugging green space, so it’s the perfect place to fit in a morning walk before breakfast. Along with its attractive location, the hotel wins with its classically luxurious rooms, homey atmosphere and oyster bar dishing up local delights including chowder, steamed clams and halibut burgers.
