Wag-tastic Hotels With Dog Goodies

Wag-tastic Hotels With Dog Goodies

There is plenty for you and your dog to do in Boston, New York and Miami Beach, Florida — and if you choose to stay over at these three pet-friendly hotels in those desirable destinations, there are packages available year round with plenty of pooch-specific extras.


The recently opened Whitney Hotel, a refreshed property in Boston’s Historic Beacon Hill, offers the Whitney Wags pet-friendly package, which ensures a quality and luxury stay for you and your dog. The Whitney has partnered with local artisans to create special experiences and products for guests and their pets, such as a plush Lion + Wolf bed, a drip Modual pet feeder by San Francisco-based architect and designer EJ Tanu, gourmet treats from Boston’s PolkaDog Bakery and a monogrammed Whitney field jacket. The Whitney Hotel welcomes two dogs up to 50 pounds for an additional fee of $100 per stay.

New York

Recently rebranded with a focus on sustainability, music, local culture and more, INNSiDE by Meliá New York NoMad also prides itself as pet-friendly. The in-house Wilson restaurant offers Wilson’s Dog Menu, which is available to all furry guests of the hotel and features gourmet food that can be ordered outside on the side patio in front of the property. Per Department of Health regulations, this menu is available exclusively outside; dogs must be on leashes or in crates, and the menu is only served in single-use, disposable containers.

INNSiDE by Meliá New York NoMad’s pet package invites dogs up to 30 pounds for an additional one-time fee of $150 per pet, per stay, and that covers a pet bed and bowl, along with meal options at The Wilson. Madison Square Park is close to the hotel for you to walk your dog. For same-day arrivals, call 877-411-3436 to confirm availability of a pet-friendly room.

Miami Beach, Florida

The Confidante Miami Beach is an oceanfront oasis in Miami Beach’s popular mid-beach neighborhood. Upon arrival, you and your canine friend will receive a Confidante-branded dog tag to be placed on the collar for the entirety of their stay to ensure the dog’s safety, as it has the property’s address and phone number for reference. As take-home gifts, guests get a Confidante-branded pop-up water bowl and a bone-shaped baggie dispenser.

Guests also receive a curated Miami Guide filled with the best pet-friendly restaurants, shopping districts, parks/beaches and more. The Backyard, the hotel’s pool and outdoor lounge area, offers $5 all-natural popsicles for pups featuring peanut butter and watermelon flavors from the popular local shop Cielito Artisan Pops.

The Miami pet company Four Paws Pet Care offers 25% off all services, including pet sitting and pet walking, should you want to spend the day exploring or enjoy Miami Beach’s nightlife. The hotel’s policy includes a one-time $100 deep-cleaning fee for a stay up to six nights. The hotel allows dog companions at a max of 50 pounds or two pets at a combined max of 75 pounds in the guestroom on any floor and in the outdoor garden sitting area. Only service animals are allowed in all public areas, such as restaurants, pools and the beach.
