As one of the most dog-friendly cities in the USA, Denver is a great place to bring your pet along for the trip. With the great outdoors on your doorstep and dozens of pet-friendly restaurants, your pooch will enjoy the city as much as you. There is even a food truck selling home-made treats for dogs. With that in mind, take a look at the best pet-friendly hotels in the Colorado capital.
For Denver’s most premium pet-friendly service, stay at Hotel Teatro, where your discerning dog can get a “pawdicure” at a pet spa nearby while you nibble on charcuterie in the Study. You can even arrange a certified canine massage therapist to give your pup a Calming Relaxation Massage after a long day of sniffing its way around the city. Afterward, your pet will sleep soundly in its plush dog bed while you put your feet up with an ale from the hotel’s Craft Beer Concierge.
Blending pine wood and leather with sleek contemporary furnishings, Kimpton Hotel Born is a warm urban refuge for you and your animal companion. Wander around the hotel and admire the art exhibition with your pet, or bring it along while you dine at the rustic wood-fired restaurant, Citizen Rail. Pet-sitting and dog-walking services are available for when you may need an extra bit of independence.
Denver’s best museums and galleries, including the Denver Art Museum, are just a 10-minute walk away from the Art Hotel, along with plenty of parks for your pup to play in. However, the hotel also has a collection of contemporary art, so you don’t have to leave the hotel to fill your culture cup. Head to the rooftop Fire Restaurant & Lounge for fine food and fresh air.
Featuring neon signs, lava lamps and even a campervan serving as an entryway, this pop-culture-themed hotel will impress you and your pet. The Knock-Knock suite, decorated with animal ornaments and a “grass” footstool, will be a natural habitat for your furry friend. With bowls, treats, pet beds and more available at your request, the Curtis Denver ensures that your pet will have a comfortable stay.
All dogs – small or large – are welcome at La Quinta Inn and Suites by Wyndham Denver Airport DIA, a 15-minute drive from the airport. Fresh air and exercise await you and your pet, with a garden and terrace just outside, and spacious rooms allow plenty of room to spread out. Alternatively, it’s about a 2mi (3km) walk to the 61st & Peña train station, which leads directly into the capital.
Home2 Suites by Hilton Denver International Airport is a no-fuss hotel that balances simplicity with comfort in a convenient airport location. The lobby offers concierge services and essential travel items, while the pool is a tempting place to relax after a long journey into town. Dogs up to 75lb (34kg) are welcome to join you for an extra fee.
