The best journeys are those with loved ones – and if your loved one happens to have four legs and a whole lot of fur, even better. Luckily, Montgomery, Alabama, is home to plenty of hotels that will treat your pets like royalty, and they’re bookable on Culture Trip.
The capital of Alabama is home to museums of all sorts, such as the Legacy Museum, memorials – it’s the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement – and hiking trails, which are perfect for exploring with your canine companion by your side. We’ve rounded up the best pet-friendly hotels in Montgomery that go the extra mile.
For an extra nightly fee, small dogs (and cats) can appreciate the cultural hub that is Montgomery, Alabama, at this sleek DoubleTree by Hilton outpost. It’s the ideal spot for a business stay thanks to its proximity to area businesses and government offices, and if your pets don’t mind chilling in their crates for a while, you can leave them unattended while you crush that presentation. Still not sold? You’ll be treated to a warm Doubletree chocolate chip cookie on arrival.
At this Staybridge Suites, all are well catered for, including pets, and it’s ideal for extended stays in the city, with each accommodation having a kitchenette and a separate living space. You’ll also be steps from historical landmarks, such as the Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice, the Riverfront Park and the Hank Williams Museum. Back at this pet-friendly hotel in Montgomery, you’ll find a swimming pool and a fitness center, too, if you fancy squeezing in a quick workout.
The exalted hospitality of La Quinta Inn and Suites extends to all furry friends at this popular Prattville hotel, where up to two pets of any size are welcome in designated tastefully designed rooms. Following a quick morning swim in the outdoor pool, you can play fetch with your pooch on the vast grassy areas surrounding the hotel. Alternatively, you can head to the dog-friendly hiking trails nearby, taking frequent stops so that pet-loving passers-by can shower your pup with attention and cuddles.
With its understated style, friendly staff and complimentary Southern breakfast, Homewood Suites by Hilton Montgomery is a solid option if you’ve got Fido in tow. Two pets of any size are welcome for an extra charge, but they must be crated when left unattended. What’s more, there’s an intimate pet walking area just behind the hotel for a quick stretch of four legs, while more challenging dog-friendly hiking trails are a few miles away.
Your furry friends are treated as part of the family at Sonesta ES Suites Montgomery, where they’ll be greeted by name on arrival and welcomed with a special treat at check-in. At this convenient yet comfortable aparthotel perfect for extended stays, suites are spacious enough to give your pup space to explore, while a designated dog station means it’ll leave with some new friends too. For owners, you’re only 5mi (8km) from historic sites, meaning everyone is happy.
The rooms might be pared back, but your beloved pup will be more than happy hanging out at these long-stay serviced apartments, complete with fully equipped kitchens perfect for storing food and all-important treats. While only one small dog or cat is allowed, it can be left unattended if you need to pop out, and if you’re working from your room, the spacious moveable desk and ergonomic chair are specifically designed to keep you productive.
At this clean and modern Homewood Suites by Hilton, complete with a chic resort-style swimming pool that brings a West Coast vibe to downtown Montgomery, two pets of any size can join you for an additional fee. There are many dog-friendly walks right on its doorstep. Once your pup has had its exercise, visit the gym or basketball court to work up a sweat before taking a short stroll to the nearby shops for a little retail therapy.
Providing easy access to all of the main historic sites in the city, Drury Inn and Suites Montgomery is a top-notch option for both business and leisure trips, especially if your dog (or cat) is joined at your hip. At this family-owned hotel, there will be plenty of cute little touches, including the 5:30 Kickback, where you can mingle for 90 minutes while enjoying complimentary snacks, wine, beer and soft drinks. And with plenty of grassy areas and designated pet stations, there’s something for all members of the family.
