Toronto makes the perfect getaway for humans and pets alike, with leafy parks, a rambling waterfront and quiet neighborhood streets to explore. The city is known for being dog-friendly – it has more than 200,000 resident pooches – so there are countless restaurants and cafes that welcome pets. Hotels also cater to animals – here we present a pawful of Toronto’s best pet-friendly options, bookable on Culture Trip.

1. The Ritz-Carlton Toronto, for class near the CN Tower

The location of this upscale hotel is hard to beat. You’ve got the landmark CN Tower, Toronto’s most famous sight, two blocks away. Your dog? They’ve got Pecaut Square, a plaza flecked with sculptures and trees, just across the street for morning sniffing sessions. And while the Ritz-Carlton may be pet-friendly, that doesn’t mean skimping on style. Sleek rooms feature plush furnishings, with chandeliers aplenty and large windows serving impressive city views.

2. The St. Regis Toronto, for working with your pet for company

Thinking of taking your pet to Toronto while on business? You’re in the heart of the city’s financial district when you stay at the St. Regis, which means your dog or cat won’t have a long commute between meetings. Luxury is the name of the game at this swanky residence, where humans and animals can have it all, whether it’s in-room snacks, fireside snuggles in an expansive suite or meticulous butler service. The ultimate indulgence? A day spent in the vast 32nd-floor Iridium Spa.

3. Fairmont Royal York, for history brought up to date

Few Toronto hotels are as iconic as the historic Fairmont Royal York, a stone-fronted pile that first flung open its doors in 1929. The pet-friendly rooms are far from stuck in the past, however, with slick contemporary furnishings complementing period features and shades of grey running throughout. The dining options are equally appetizing, with everything from steak to sushi.

4. The Hazelton Hotel, for top quality in a top location

For the ultimate in pet-friendly pampering, check into the Hazelton Hotel and prepare to be wooed by its stunningly slick interior design. It’s at the heart of Toronto’s upmarket Yorkville district, beloved by celebrities and high-flyers alike. There are 65 rooms in total, finished to the highest standards – the granite-clad bathrooms feature underfloor heating that your pets will love.

5. Hotel X Toronto, for access to a dog-friendly park

With plenty of space to roam on walkies, and green islands and beaches nearby, Toronto’s Exhibition Place district is prime for visitors with pets who need proper exercise. Right next to Coronation Park – complete with an off-leash dog area – Hotel X Toronto gives you access to it all. Cool, contemporary rooms stand across from the CN Tower, Toronto’s most noteworthy landmark, while the hotel kitchen will whip up chicken tenders or sashimi for you to enjoy in-room alongside your furry bud.

6. The SoHo Hotel & Residences, for entertainment on your doorstep

In the heart of Toronto’s entertainment district, the Soho is great for pet owners seeking a social stay in the city. The buzzing Moretti restaurant dishes up Italian fare – think burrata-smothered pizza or fettuccine ai funghi – while “zoom rooms” let you get down to business with online meetings before you head out. Download the hotel app to do everything on your phone, from scheduling a wake-up call to ordering room service.

7. The Anndore House, for a homey stay with character

The lengthy north-south stretch of George Hislop Park will become your morning stomping ground when you stay with your pooch at the Anndore House; the hotel is just next door. With 113 characterful rooms, all with distinct touches – from owl-shaped throw pillows to cinema-themed artwork – it feels a bit like you and your pet are staying at the apartment of a good Canadian friend, rather than a hotel. Start days with artisan coffee from the Crows Nest Café, and round them out with drinks at the Med-style Constantine restaurant.

8. The Annex, for relaxation in a cutting-edge district

Named after one of Toronto’s coolest neighborhoods – an energetic area peppered with shops, bars and restaurants – the Annex is a cool, laid-back pad that encapsulates the city’s trendier side. Snuggle up with your pet in a bright space with exposed brick, funky house plants and black-and-white photos. Sip on natural tipples in the cozy neighborhood wine bar, then follow up with delectable smash burgers and fried chicken from on-site eatery Aunty Lucy’s.
