Colorado Springs is a great destination to visit all year round, made even better when accompanied by your four-legged best friend. With so many walks up mountains and down valleys, through forests and fields, it would be rude to leave your dog at home. Here are the best pet-friendly hotels in Colorado Springs for your Rocky Mountains escape, all bookable with Culture Trip.

This consciously crafted eco-hotel strives to be kind to all creatures of the earth – with a sustainable design and vegan-forward food – and that extends to your furry best friend. Bring your dog along for free to enjoy hikes through the Rocky Mountains, and return to minimal rooms featuring mattresses made from plant-based foam, eco-friendly bath products and calming Himalayan salt lamps. There are also yoga mats in each room, so you can unwind with some downward-facing dogs – maybe your pooch will join too.

Enjoy a complimentary made-to-order omelette for breakfast before setting off to walk in the foothills of Ormes Peak, or stay closer to home for scenic hikes through Ute Valley Park. Relax at the end of the day by the fireside in the warm and inviting lounge, and sink back into a deep jetted bathtub in the Spa Suite.
