Holiday planning can be stressful for those leaving pets behind. Boarding is expensive, and there’s no way of explaining to your furry family member that you’ll be back soon. Fortunately, you don’t have to when you visit Boston; these hotels roll out the red carpet for you both.

With art-splattered walls and voice-activated room settings, Aloft is a funky far cry from your grandmother’s Marriott (the umbrella brand). The Aloft Arf program sees to it that your furry friend has all the treats they can eat as well as an Instagram-worthy pet bed. Owners of sensitive pets are encouraged to request a room away from the commotion of the lobby. And for extra measure, you could instruct Siri to turn on some soothing music.

Make yourselves at home for an extended stay in this eco-chic high-rise property in the Seaport District. The spacious rooms and suites have enough space for both of you to stretch out. Fido and Fluffy may not appreciate the hardwood floors, natural light, rainfall showerheads and Pharmacopia-brand bath potions as much as you do, but they will be jumping for joy at the complimentary treats, bowls and beds, not to mention the grassy spot they can disappear to to do their business.
