Animal rescue groups reported a huge boom in pet adoptions last year, and with remote work becoming more widespread than ever, the idea of working from anywhere — with your four-legged BFF curled up at your feet — is a growing trend.
Luckily, many hotels participating in Marriott Bonvoy around the globe will welcome both of you with special amenities and treats, like pet-friendly menu items and bedding to keep you both comfy. Here are some hotels ready to roll out the red carpet for both two- and four-legged guests.
As always, check for travel restrictions and closures before planning your trip.
London: Sheraton Grand London Park Lane
The bar, Smith & Whistle, features the city’s first permanent drinks list designed specifically for doggos. The “Dogtails” menu includes libations like the Hound’s Hops, a specially brewed dog-friendly beer with fresh mint; the Poochie Colada, combining coconut water, kale and broccoli for glossy coats and healthy joints; or the Posh Pooch, an herbal “wine” made from ginseng, elderflower, nettle, lime flower and carrot.
Asheville, NC: Aloft Asheville Downtown
Aloft Asheville Downtown‘s special partnership with a local organization, Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue, brings a precious pup on property — and into the arms of guests and visitors.
A resident foster dog lives in a hot-pink “doggy den” in the hotel’s lobby, where it can meet potential adopters and greet incoming guests. If they’re game, hotel guests can take the foster dog for a walk to explore Asheville’s adorable historic center and spend some bonding time together.
Fell in love with the pooch? Fill out the adoption application to ensure you’re a good match, and pay the adoption fee, which goes to benefit Charlie’s Angels and keep the program running.
Alexandria, VA: The Alexandrian Old Town Alexandria, Autograph Collection
In the heart of history-filled Old Town, The Alexandrian, Autograph Collection is big on charm and equally big on making sure you and your pet feel comfortable at the hotel.
The Pampered Pups package includes in-room food and water bowls, treats and toys, a plush dog bed and a curated list of Alexandria’s favorite dog parks. When you check in, your dog will also get a special “puppy pop” to make the experience extra sweet.

Tokyo: Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel
The hotel features dog-friendly suites, on-site grooming in a dedicated Dog Lounge (complete with nail clipping, ear cleaning and brushing), as well as Dog Cabin service — a pup-sitting option that allows you to explore during the day or enjoy a local restaurant without your pet. The special room service dog menu is packed with treats, including birthday cakes.

The only pet-friendly hotel in Abu Dhabi, the property offers a P.A.Wsome Retreat package, which includes a plush puppy bed, food and water bowls, and plenty of snacks to please your pooch. At check-in, your pup will get a welcome amenity just for them, and the PAW menu is filled with delicious dishes designed for dogs.
Nashville, TN: Moxy Nashville Downtown
In the heart of Music City, just steps from Broadway’s honky-tonks, the hip Moxy Nashville Downtown is a pet-friendly property with free treats on offer for Fido. Plus Nashville, with its bevy of breweries, barbecue joints and a beautiful riverfront along the Cumberland, is extra dog-friendly.
The 13,000-square-foot, fenced Riverfront Park Dog Park is a 15-minute walk from the Moxy and offers up artificial turf, Wi-Fi for humans and doggy water fountains. Share a pulled pork platter at the pet-friendly Peg Leg Porker restaurant, but make sure your pup saves room for a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert.
Victoria, British Columbia: Delta Hotels Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort
Make sure you tag your Instagram pics with #DogsofDelta when you stay at this coastal resort in one of Canada’s most exciting adventure towns. But don’t worry — kitties are welcome, too.
