1. Sunset Tower Hotel

West Hollywood’s historic Sunset Tower Hotel takes pets seriously. Opened in 1931, it offers four-legged guests mini Sunset Tower beds, food bowls and edible goodies, as well as access to the William S Hart Dog Park next door, which was given to the hotel by the silent film actor. Two-legged guests, meanwhile, can soak up the old-world glamour of this Hollywood institution, which received a modernizing renovation by hotelier Jeff Klein in the early 2000s. Klein’s major addition, the glamorous rooftop Tower Bar, is one of Los Angeles’ premier celeb-spotting haunts.

2. Dream Hollywood

Pooch-friendly accommodation is available at Dream Hollywood, a super-modern boutique with a rooftop pool and a fitness center designed by celebrity personal trainer Gunnar Peterson. While your furry companion reclines in the room, enjoying sharp interior design by the Rockwell Group, head to sleek rooftop grill the Highlight Room, or enjoy Pan-Asian cuisine at Tao or multi-ethnic dishes at Beauty & Essex. Many rooms and suites have private balconies, and most have unbroken views of Downtown or the hills.

3. Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows

Santa Monica’s Fairmont Miramar welcomes pets to the only beachside bungalows in Los Angeles. Built in traditional SoCal style between 1926 and 1940 and surrounded by tranquil gardens, these luxury properties feature deep La Cava Tubs, private furnished patios and bold designs by Michael Burman. When not playing with your pet(s) on the 3.5-mile-long (5.6km) beach, relax poolside or explore stellar onsite hangouts such as FIG, where chef Jason Prendergast shows off the finest Californian ingredients, or oceanfront lounge the Bungalow, ideal for a sunset cocktail.

4. The Peninsula

Pets are no problem at the five-star Peninsula in Beverly Hills, making it a top contender for best luxury pet-friendly hotel in Los Angeles. Fully refurbished in 2011, its accommodations range in size and splendor from the elegant Superior Doubles to palatial suites situated throughout the gardens, the largest of which (the Peninsula) has a grand piano, a 10-seater dining table and a hand-painted four-poster bed. Take a seat on the terrace at Le Petit Belvedere for afternoon tea – a decadent offering of dainty sandwiches and sticky cakes – or head upstairs to the Roof Garden, where Californian dishes feature vegetables grown just feet from your table.

5. Loews Santa Monica

Loews’ four-star Santa Monica hotel makes such a fuss of furry guests that their human companions might feel envious. Staff provide place mats, litter trays, beds, scratching posts and toys for four-legged companions, as well as gourmet room service menus for cats and dogs, Pet-In-Room door signs and dog-walking route maps of the neighborhood. Accommodations are spread over 347 soothingly colored rooms and suites, most of which feature views over the Pacific or terraces with fire pits. At Ocean & Wine, cocktails and dishes are emboldened with spicy sauces made by owner Oscar Ochoa.

6. Andaz West Hollywood

Pets are provided with beds, treats and bowls at Hyatt’s Andaz West Hollywood (there’s a combined 75lbs (34kg) weight limit for two dogs). When not exploring this storied district, you and your tail-wagging charge can hang out in the Riot Bar, which attracted a stream of hardcore rockers throughout the 1970s, or lounge around LA’s highest rooftop pool. Pet-friendly accommodations range from king-bed doubles with views of the Strip or the hills, to a vast Presidential Suite designed by Jonathan Adler.

7. Sofitel Los Angeles

Hollywood panache trades with French elegance at Beverly Boulevard’s pet-friendly Sofitel Los Angeles. Rooms and suites bring to mind the elegant villas of southern France with their soft hues and minimalist furnishings, some of which also offer views of the Hollywood Hills or Downtown’s skyline. For late-night entertainment and cocktails, settle into the velvet sofas at low-lit Riviera 31, which hosts jazz sessions on Monday evenings, salsa classes on Wednesdays and top local DJs on the weekends. Also on-site are a heated outdoor pool and well-equipped fitness center.

8. Palomar Los Angeles

Non-human travelers – whether cats, dogs or “any other beloved pets” – are greeted by name at Beverly Hills’ four-star Palomar Los Angeles. The hotel also provides beds, toys, bowls and treats, as well as a detailed directory of pet-friendly restaurants, parks and shops in the neighborhood. Accommodations are characterized by a modern, businessy decor, and the Skyline Rooms have views stretching all the way to Santa Monica. Sample the creations of top mixologist Sarah Mengoni in the bar, or hang out with your hound in the Double Take games room, where you’ll find pool, darts, Skee-Ball and shuffleboard.
