You already know KCMO stands for jazz, barbecue and sports, but it is also a pet-friendly city that’ll keep everyone’s tail wagging on your vacation. Dog-friendly hotels, parks, restaurants and public spaces offer endless opportunities for four-legged travelers. From the waterside greenspaces to the chill dog-friendly bar patios, you’ll have a howling good time in the City of Fountains when you stay at these pet-friendly hotels in Kansas City.

Does your dog like jazz? Your dog’s finely-tuned ears will love the live music playing at Lonnie’s Reno Club. While they can’t join you at The American Reserve for dinner, you can have room service send up a plate of soul food to your parlor suite. Throw some jazz on the music dock and have a more intimate dinner than the Lady and the Tramp’s, with a French 75 or Ella Fitzgerald for good measure.

All aboard a pet-friendly holiday in Kansas City at Hotel Indigo. Travel-themed rooms will get you and your pup eager to explore the city. Your first stop? The rooftop dog park in the Power and Light District. Your second point of call after the sunsets? Drop the pup in your room for a nap and head down to Dott Boss for sticky honey wings, steak tacos, and blueberry cinna crunch pancakes which will have your pup licking your fingers all night.

21c Museum Hotel Kansas City

We’re going to go ahead and break the news to your doggo right now: no, 21C Museum, unfortunately, doesn’t have the painting of the dogs playing poker on display. They might believe this omission doesn’t make 21C a decent dog-friendly hotel in Kansas City, but you’ll disagree. Large rooms with high ceilings and large windows give your pup room to stretch. Book the 21C suite with over 500sqft (46.5sqm) of outdoor patio space and your pooch will see things your way.

Kansas City Marriott Country Club Plaza

The Greatroom is a fantastic place to sit back and sip a drip at the Country Club Plaza Marriott. Your corgi might not be able to pull a seat up to the bar, but don’t worry, Marriott still has you covered. You can order your beverage of choice up to your high floor guest room (and a bowl of water for the pup). Does Snoopy need a great room of its own? Walk outside to the lengthy Mill Creek Park, where they can lounge without limits.

Loews Hotel Kansas City

Who do you think Loews loves more: you or your pet? The four-legged guests will receive new pet tags, treats, cat-or-dog service menus curated by chefs, special creature comforts like beds, leashes, and litter boxes and way more amenities to list. They’ll even arrange pet-sitting and pet-walking services for you. You’ll get the short end of the stick in the form of a luxury spa, indoor saltwater lap pool, a shoeshine and more.

This pet-friendly hotel in Kansas City may be part of the Hyatt Unbound Collection, but it doesn’t mean your pooch can run free without a leash. This upscale joint asks you to help them keep the stained glass and hand-hewn walnut of the Roaring Twenties institution as hair-free as possible. Keep Fido’s friskiness reserved for the outdoors and you’ll be rewarded with a gourmet mini bar in your vintage-inspired suite.

There is plenty of awesomeness to sniff out around in and around the grounds of The Westin. Heavenly Beds and floor-to-ceiling windows are just the first delightful surprises waiting in your suite. Peloton bikes and treadmills adorn the special Westin Workout suites. Outside, let your dog lead you around the sprawling Penn Valley Park to the off-leash dog park, the Money Museum and the National WWI Museum and Memorial.

Something is cooking at Towneplace Suites. Close to the KC airport, this dog-friendly hotel in Kansas City has a grill for you to use if you think you can do a Kansas City Bar-B-Q justice. Your salivating shar pei won’t mind hanging outside with you, especially beside the fire pits as you grill into the chilly hours of the night. Take your smoked meats up to your suite and eat your way into an early bedtime.

Rover will flip when he sees where the Sheraton at Crown Center is. Washington Square Park sits to the west and Hospital Hill Park sits to the east. You’ll hardly be able to drop your bags in a park-view guest room before they’re running over to you, ready for a walk. Tire them out on the trails so you have time to enjoy the inside of this pet-friendly Kansas City hotel.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
