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.

1. The Beeman Hotel

As well as its relaxed pet policy, the Beeman is loved for its restaurant-bar, Seely’s Mill, where you’ll find regular live music and Texas tequila, street tacos and brisket.

Each one of Hotel Zaza’s zany, pet-friendly suites has a theme – from the Out of Africa den to a tranquil Zen space, and the Texas room – decorated with cowhide horns and leather. You’ll receive retro candy and candles during turndown service, as well as access to the day spa and poolside DJ venue. ZaZa welcomes dogs of any size for a $150 fee and they can be left behind while you explore Dallas, plus there are plenty of off-leash parks nearby.

Presidents, celebs and even Queen Elizabeth have stayed at this historic Beaux Arts hotel in Downtown. The castle-like spot, built over a century ago, is named after its German creator Adolphus Busch and was once the tallest building in Texas, at a then-whopping 22 stories high. Today, a modern spa and rooftop pool complement grand ballrooms and ornate suites. One dog weighing up to 35lb (16kg) is permitted at the Adolphus; head one block east to Belo Garden for dog walks.

4. Hotel Crescent Court

Crescent Court, in a swanky uptown neighborhood, is one of the fanciest hotels in Dallas. Think 10 different types of imported European marble, a 2,000-year-old Greek god statue and limestone columns in the up-market Beau Nash restaurant. Despite the hotel’s grandeur, it has a generous pet policy, with two animals allowed for a $150 fee per pet. They can even be left in the room, if crated, while you enjoy the hotel’s spa and pool.

5. Magnolia Hotel Dallas Downtown

Known as the Flying Red Horse, the original sign was erected back in 1934 when the building housed the Magnolia Petroleum Company. There’s a vintage feel to the hotel, with high ceilings, an elegant bar and apartment-like suites that are perfect for pet stays. You’ll receive treats and dog-walking suggestions when you check in, with two pets of any size permitted for free.
