You’re in the heart of Downtown Seattle at the W, with sweeping views that will captivate you and your pet. Rooms are large, so there’s plenty of space for bigger breeds, with a maximum of two pets per room. When it’s time for a walk, you can take a 15-minute stroll to Occidental Park in Pioneer Square. While it’s not off-leash, you’ll find some of the best people- and pet-watching opportunities in the city here.

3. Belltown Inn

This budget- and pet-friendly hotel between Downtown and the Seattle Center is right across the street from a small off-leash dog park. The Belltown Inn welcomes up to two pets per room, including dogs up to 50lb (23kg). Nearby stores and restaurants make it easy to pop out for groceries or takeout food without leaving your buddy alone in the room for too long.

4. Graduate Seattle

The University of Washington athletic teams are nicknamed the Huskies, but dogs of all kinds are welcome to stay at the Graduate Seattle. There’s a playful spirit here, with people congregating on the long plaid sofas in the lobby. If your pet snores, you’ll welcome the high-end loaner headphones. A 24-hour fitness center and rooftop earn top marks, too.

If your very good boy (or girl) behaves, stop for a suitable reward at Mud Bay, the big pet store on 1st Avenue.

There’s no need to pack all of your gear for a visit to Seattle since Hotel Theodore will provide a bed, a bowl, a toy and a treat for your furry family member. Ask for directions to Plymouth Pillars Park, which offers a small off-leash area and a view of Seattle that few visitors ever see. The park is just a short stroll away, whether you have two legs or four.

7. The State Hotel

Pike Place Market is at the hotel’s doorstep, though only service animals are allowed there.
