If you’re dying to visit Palm Springs, California, but want to take your dog along while hiking in the San Jacinto Mountains or Tahquitz Canyon – or just don’t fancy leaving Fido with a sitter – there are plenty of pet-friendly hotel options in the city. It won’t limit the type of place you can stay at either, as our guide includes everything from luxury, boutique and resort hotels to bed and breakfasts. Here’s where to stay for a pet-friendly trip to Palm Springs.

Caliente Tropics Hotel

A great retro hideaway for pet lovers just south of downtown, the Caliente Tropics has a relaxed vibe that animals will love. The aesthetic is very Polynesian, with hand-carved tikis, and the hotel is home to the most tropical bar in town, the Reef – try the Navy Grog, made with various rums and grapefruit juice. You can take the dog for a walk in the nearby Tahquitz Canyon.

Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs Hotel

Pet-sitting, dog-walking and even pet spa services can all be requested at the front desk of the Kimpton Rowan, which benefits from a rooftop swimming pool that makes it one of the most memorable in town. The trailhead for the Cactus to Clouds hike, perfect for a trip out with the dog, is within walking distance. Other Palm Springs attractions are also accessible, like the Convention Center which is less than a mile away.

Ace Hotel and Swim Club

By far the coolest place in Palm Springs to take your pet, this former cheap motel that has undergone a major retro makeover. There are two large swimming pools and it has a bohemian vibe, thanks to the vintage photo booth and the record players and old vinyl in some of the rooms – not to mention impossible-to-resist caramel popcorn in the minibars. Pets come at an additional price, while their website adds: “When we say pet we really mean dog, but just get in touch if you have something stranger or larger, and we’ll try to make it work.”

Hyatt Palm Springs

This large resort hotel is right by downtown, and rooms feature marble bathroom countertops, mini fridges and coffeemakers. There’s a wide choice of suites, with pool, mountain or city views. It’s pet-friendly, and there are some creative offers, such as the Family Flexcation package where digital nomad families receive daily picnic lunches and a Kids Creativity Kit to keep the little ones occupied.

Inn at Palm Springs

This 18-room boutique hotel is located in a great spot between Little Tuscany, the Uptown Design District and the Aerial Tramway – and it’s very dog-friendly. It’s even across the street from 4 Paws, a pet-themed cafe where you can get a gourmet coffee or tea and a “pup cup” for your canine companion. All rooms have either hardwood or tile floors and individual air conditioning units, and most have pool, mountain or garden views.

    Arrive Palm Springs

    Dogs are welcome at Arrive Palm Springs, and both you and your furry friend will feel right at home here. The bright orange-brown facade, with its homage to Palm Springs’ mid-century modernism – think desert rock at sunset in terms of color – is hard to miss as you’re cruising down Palm Canyon Drive. The hotel was purpose built in 2016, and the rooms, which fill with California sunshine from early in the day, are arranged around the pool.
