Traveling with pets can be a little overwhelming. It’s hard enough making sure you have everything for yourself, but what about bringing along your best fur friend? Although cross-country road trips with fur babies in tow are becoming more and more common, that doesn’t mean automatically mean that you must camp out in your car with Fido in random parking lot.
Sometimes you need that cozy king-sized bed and room service, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your pup’s comfort! Thankfully enough, Philadelphia is an extremely pet-friendly city with tons of welcoming hotel options for you and your pooch! Here are a few to get your vacation planning underway…
The Rittenhouse Hotel: The luxurious of the luxurious, the Rittenhouse Hotel offers many special benefits for both you and your best friend. Located immediately next to Rittenhouse Square, this hotel pampers VIPs (that’s Very Important Pooches) to personalized pet bowls, specially baked goodies prepared by a chef, as well as dog-sitting and walking services to make sure they’re getting the TLC they need to enjoy this vacation just as much as you are. While great for the pup, there are plenty of options for us humans as well! The Rittenhouse Hotel offers Spa & Wellness opportunities, as well as various other combination packages to help you explore the city! Located At: 210 West Rittenhouse Square , Philadelphia , PA 19103
ROOST East Market: As a unique lodging option, the ROOST East Market offers fully furnished weekly or monthly apartment rentals in Philadelphia. The stylish spaces come fully equipped with a kitchen, king-sized bed, landscaped terraces, a lap pool, and so much more. More importantly (especially in the case of the specific article), it is a pet-friendly venue! They offer dog walking services if you’re out and about, but also are within a half mile of a popular green space to let your pup stretch their legs. Located At: 1199 Ludlow St. Philadelphia, PA 19107
Aloft Downtown: Once an old abandoned bank, the newly renovated Aloft Downtown is another great pet-friendly option if you are traveling to the city of Philadelphia. Bring your pup along to experience the 24-hour grab and go eatery or the backyard terrace. If you need to focus in order to get some work done, there are also various meeting spaces located within the hotel. The best part? You are located right in center city, so the opportunities to explore are endless. Needing a bite to eat? Step on over to the Reading Terminal Market? Needing to go for a nice long walk? Take Spot and head down the parkway to the famous Rocky steps at the art museum! The possibilities are endless. Located At: 101 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107
Warwick Hotel Rittenhouse Square: Are we still interested in luxury? Because here’s another option for you and your pet! Located on South 17th Street, the Warwick Hotel is another great lodging opportunity in the Rittenhouse neighborhood. With access to renowned sites, great shopping, various landmarks, nightlife, fine dining, and theaters, there is no shortage of things to do here! Feel free to stay in and relax with an in-room spa treatment after enjoying a refreshing latte from Bluestone Lane Café. And yes, pups are welcome.

The Logan: Another Center City hotel option for pet owners is the Logan Philadelphia hotel! This hotel oozes playfulness by combining contemporary design and the unique vibe that you can only find in Philly, creating a truly authentic experience. Stay a while and enjoy a cocktail during happy hour at the Assembly Rooftop, or try something new to eat at Urban Farmer. In addition to being in the middle of all of the action, The Logan is also located to multiple parks and spaces for your pup to enjoy while visiting the city. While they do charge a mandatory pet fee, a portion of that fee is donated to a local animal shelter or the ASPCA. Located At: One Logan Square, Philadelphia, PA 19103
The Bellevue Hotel: Lastly (but certainly not least), we have the Bellevue Hotel located right near the Walnut-Locust subway stop. This hotel allows you to bring TWO pets along with you on your trip, and will graciously provide owners with a “Dogs on Vacation” sign upon check-in. Pup needs a walk? Seger Park is only 10 minutes away (even less if you have a pooch with a tendency to pull you along in the right direction). Of course, there are also plenty of options for you once again! Nestled right in the heart of Center City Philadelphia, there are plenty of restaurants, shops, and activities to keep you entertained while on your vacation.
