With residents famed for their outdoor lifestyle, Oregon’s largest city is welcoming to all kinds of pets. These dog-friendly hotels in Portland will gladly greet you and your four-legged friend – bookable on Culture Trip.

Consistently ranked one of the greenest cities in the country, Portland is a haven for those who love to get outside – and those who have pets. With its miles of walking and biking trails, seemingly endless riverfront and easy access to hikes and mountain trails, this city is a great retreat for travelers with creatures in tow. And you’ll be welcome wherever you go: Portland’s pet-friendly hotels leave nothing to be desired. Here’s our pick of the best.

This effortlessly chic, upscale pet-friendly hotel in the heart of the city offers more than just classy rooms and easy access to Portland’s shopping and dining highlights. Human guests will be impressed by the local in the guest rooms and subtle luxuries like fog-free bathroom mirrors. Meanwhile, their furry friends will be greeted with the welcome kit, complete with special treats and a collapsible water bowl.

2. Hilton Portland Downtown

The Hilton’s downtown location means you’re steps from Portland’s rightly praised dining scene and parks, and there are sweeping city views from every guest room window (with a glimpse of the river or mountains if you’re lucky). But the star of the show here is the hotel’s bar and restaurant, HopCity Tavern, led by chef Marissa Burback. Unwind at the gently lit, marble-topped bar while expert mixologists serve up elegant craft cocktails and plates of Pacific Northwest-inspired delicacies. All dogs are welcome for a fee.

4. AC Hotel by Marriott Portland Downtown

Slip into the stylish atmosphere at this upscale downtown getaway. A rock-encrusted hole in the wall of the lobby lets you order from the on-site coffeeshop, while the AC Lounge beckons with its endless thick, white marble bar to enjoy a drink or two. At the end of the night, sink into the “floating” bed, with up to two dogs by your side for a nightly fee.

5. Tiny Digs Hotel

This ultra-unique hotel is more an experience than simply a hotel. For anyone curious about tiny home living, this hotel is a must stay. A collection of eight individually themed tiny homes (two of which are pet-friendly) are all gathered together around a central space. Tiny Digs lets you enjoy the comforts of your own unit, or socialize with other guests in the beautifully lit shared outdoor seating and fire pits.

6. The Duniway Portland

Offering a boutique, luxury experience, you’ll be instantly impressed by the Duniway’s tasteful lobby space, sparkling clean indoor pool and pet-friendly atmosphere. But the bar, filled with leather chairs you’ll sink right into and a vintage speakeasy atmosphere, might be able to top it. Dogs big or small can accompany you on your stay here.

7. The Lakeshore Inn

With its stunning water views and private decks, the Lakeshore Inn is a little further from the city center, benefitting from a lakeshore setting in upscale Lake Oswego. While pups can’t use the seasonal heated pool, they are welcome in most rooms. The small fee gets them bonuses they’ll love – treats included. And best of all, this hotel’s setting makes it pet-perfect for outdoor adventures.
