The 25 Pet-Friendliest Hotels in Greater Boston

View as Map

'Tis Hotels Week 2014 here at Curbed Boston and what better way to kick things off than a mega-update to your Pet-Friendliest Hotels Heatmap? Here are 25 inns in Boston and Cambridge that welcome Fido with open arms, including the Hyatt Regency Cambridge, the Four Seasons, Nine Zero, Loews Back Bay and the Liberty. Though be warned: Some hotels are pet-friendlier than others, with a handful charging rather hefty fees. Woof. Also, service animals as a rule are allowed at all hotels in the region. This map deals with pets otherwise.
