One of the toughest parts about traveling is being separated from your loved ones—and that includes your four-legged friends. It's hard to enjoy your travels when you know your dog or cat is sitting at home, staring out the window and anxiously anticipating your return.

But lucky for you, you don't have to abandon Fido to explore Vancouver—there are plenty of hotels in the area that not only allow you to bring your pet but welcome them with open arms. Here are our picks for the most pet-friendly hotels in Vancouver that are dedicated to ensuring both you and your four-legged friend have a vacation to remember:


Metropolitan Hotel Vancouver

Why it made the list

This property doesn't have a weight limit—meaning your pup will be welcome, no matter what size. There's also a number of dog parks in the area, so just ask the front desk to point you in the right direction.

Opus Vancouver Hotel

Why it made the list

Opus Vancouver Hotel takes pet-friendly to a whole new level.

There's also a fantastic dog park just a few blocks away—ask the front desk for directions.
