Woof! 20 Pet-Friendly Hotels in Boston

View as Map

Hotels Week 2013 rolls along here at Curbed Boston, and this morning we grab a leash and go walking through 20 of the pet-friendliest hotels in Boston. These include ones that merely tolerate your dog or cat for a fee (the Hilton Boston Downtown and the Hilton Logan Airport) and those that really roll out the red carpet for Fido and Snookums with an array of services and treats (XV Beacon, the Onyx). Please note: Service animals are allowed as a rule at these inns; we're talking pets otherwise.

NOTE: This map was majorly updated in March 2014.
