It would be unfair to let your four-legged friend miss out on a trip to Bozeman, Montana, a lively university town in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Perfectly placed for hiking, biking and skiing, it’s also frequently named as the “most liveable” place in the USA. Check out the best dog-friendly hotels in Bozeman to see what all the fuss is about, bookable with Culture Trip.

Step into the arty interior of this Bozeman boutique hotel with your furry canine companion by your side – just make sure you request a pet-friendly room in advance. Head to the interactive Map Room where you can research the best outdoor activities, check weather conditions and tap the team’s exhaustive local knowledge. Rooms feature original work by Bozeman artists, plus include luxury perks such as Malin + Goetz toiletries and pillow top beds.

This hotel’s pet policy is simple: as long as it fits in the elevator, it’s welcome. If you’re traveling with a dog, you’ll receive a water bowl and complimentary doggy bags. Occupying a muscular 1940s building that once housed the Bozeman National Guard, rooms are characterized by dark wood, leather and knitted fabrics – some also have Rocky Mountain views. Expansive views are on offer at the Sky Shed, a glass-enclosed rooftop bar warmed by a fire pit.

3. Element Bozeman

Dog-friendly rooms at this three-star Marriott frame views of snow-topped mountains with big picture windows – the rule is one hound per room. Just off Main Street, it’s a great value base for an outdoorsy break, setting you up for an excursion to the peaks with a complimentary breakfast of muffins, cereal, juices and fresh fruit. Upon your return, soak your tired legs in the indoor pool before heading out for dinner and local craft beer at Revelry across the street.

4. Residence Inn by Marriott Bozeman Downtown

Perfect for self caterers, this downtown Marriott offers kitchens as standard, ready for you to whip up a snack for yourself and your canine companion. You aren’t required to be totally self-sufficient, though: a complimentary hot and cold breakfast is served every morning, and the shiny Sapphire Bar offers local IPAs, international wines and sweet and savory bites. Treat yourself to the Montana Sundae, a diet-ruining dessert of vanilla ice cream topped with huckleberry sauce, chocolate chips and whipped cream.

5. Best Western Plus GranTree Inn

Two pooches per room is the policy at the GranTree on the outskirts of Bozeman. The on-site Club Tavern & Grill enjoys a reputation as one of Bozeman’s best eateries, plus it boasts 12 TVs screening all the key sports events. Tuck into all-American classics such as burgers, slow-cooked ribs and mac ‘n’ cheese, alongside signature cocktails and a wide-ranging wine list. Work it off in the gym or indoor pool – and check out the floor-to-ceiling mountain views while you’re there.

6. Holiday Inn Express & Suites Bozeman West, an IHG Hotel
