A Pet’s Guide to Staying at a Boutique Hotel in Chicago

Traveling with your pet can be a fun experience, but it’s essential to find the perfect pet-friendly accommodations that provide for your furry friend's needs. We put together this blog to share everything you need to know to make the most of your visit to Chicago.

Comfort First

The most important thing to check for when booking a pet-friendly hotel is whether they can provide a bed for your four-legged friend. It’s often not possible to bring your own from home, but that shouldn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your comfort and share the bed with your canine. Boutique hotels might even throw in a food bowl so that you and your pet can each have your own essentials for the evening. Providing a plush dog bed is the first step to an experience unlike any other

Exploring Chicago

The Windy City is a very walkable location, making it perfect for getting around with a leash. Some pet-favorite places to visit include the Riverwalk and Montrose Dog Beach. Here dogs can take a dip in the water and enjoy the warm summer days in the cool water. Wanting to see the city without stretching your legs? Try out a canine cruise and set sail with your best friend. Navy Pier is also welcoming to dogs, allowing you to keep your adventures going while including the entire family. 

Doggy Eats

After a long day in the city, your best friend deserves a chance to refuel and enjoy a little treat. The SoFo Tap features happy hour for dogs every Sunday from noon-3, where they can snag a free treat while their owners enjoy half-priced beer. Your dog can also cool off with a drink at Mott St while owners enjoy king crab rice cakes. Want to give your dog a full meal? Barrio serves pet-friendly menu items like chicken breasts, burger patties, and woof-cream desserts. There are also plenty of bars with patios that welcome dogs of all shapes and sizes. No one has to go hungry in the heart of the Midwest.

Local Pet Services and Stores

Taking care of your pet's needs while traveling is crucial, and Chicago offers a variety of services to ensure your furry friend is well looked after. If your pet needs grooming, Soggy Paws mobile grooming services will keep your pet looking their best. Should you need any supplies, Bentley's Pet Stuff and Kriser's Natural Pet have a wide selection of high-quality food, toys, and accessories. In case of any health concerns, Medical District Veterinary Clinic and VCA Lake Shore Animal Hospital are nearby, offering comprehensive veterinary care. These local pet services and stores make it easy to access everything you need for your pet, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable stay in Chicago.
