Bringing your beloved pet on a trip to Dallas? You’re in luck. The Big D may be known for its Cowboys football team and booming business and oil hub, but it’s also home to one of the USA’s largest city park systems. Check into one of the city’s top pet-friendly hotels, which offer handy amenities for your furry friend and nearby dog-walking routes.
Pets are welcomed at Rosewood Mansion with treats, beds and a guide to pet-friendly Dallas attractions. There’s a $150 cleaning fee and dogs can’t be left unattended, so take advantage of nearby Turtle Creek walking trails and the hotel’s dog sitting services. This palatial estate, dating back to the 1920s, lies in Mediterranean pool gardens and is filled with European antiques collected by its original, well-traveled owners. Rosewood Mansion’s former guest list includes famous names including Tennessee Williams and Theodore Roosevelt.
Hotel Indigo, a National Historic Landmark that was once home to the Dallas Opera House and Titche-Goettinger department store, occupies a prime location in the heart of Downtown. One cat or dog up to 75lb (34kg) is allowed per room for a $75 charge and can be left alone while you’re out exploring. It is just across the street from a dog park, plus there’s a free local-area shuttle service.
You’ll feel right at home in these loft-inspired suites, which feature urban-chic decor, 14ft (4m) ceilings and windows overlooking the Dallas cityscape. Take a dip in the outdoor pool and sip on a handcrafted cocktail at the WXYZ Bar, where local artists often play live music. The hotel, located just steps from city hall and with a grassy area opposite, is ideal if you’re traveling with pets – up to two cats or dogs, weighing no more than 50lb (23kg), can stay free of charge.
Visiting the Southern Methodist University in Dallas? The Lumen is conveniently located just across the street, in the Highland Park neighborhood. Once a 1960s motel, the refurbished building is now a luxury boutique hotel with its own rooftop pool, gym and four-star restaurant. Stylish rooms and suites boast floor-to-ceiling windows, some with kitchenettes, and can accommodate pets of any size for a $25 fee per pet, per night.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A GUIDE?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
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.
WHAT DESTINATION IS ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET-LIST?
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!

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
