There’s no need to pack all your gear for a visit to Seattle, since Hotel Theodore will provide a bed, bowl, toy and treat for your furry family member.

The State Hotel welcomes up to two dogs per room, and its Urban Pooch package includes a bag of treats and tips for exploring with your dog.

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

This former school in the Seattle suburb of Bothell has especially spacious rooms – all once classrooms – plenty of outdoor spaces for you and your pups to ramble, and a dog park about three blocks away at Bothell Landing. McMenamins is a good bet if you have a traveling menagerie since there are no size or weight restrictions and no limit on the number of pets allowed.

There’s lots of room to romp at Willows Lodge, including dog-walking paths amid the beautifully landscaped gardens of this Washington wine-country resort. Curl up in front of the gas fireplace in your room or sit on the private patio. While the high-end restaurants at Willows Lodge aren’t the best bet for pets, plenty of other nearby spots will welcome them.
