Did you know Las Vegas offers some of the best pet-friendly hotels in the country? Travel with confidence knowing you can have fun with your furry one in the Entertainment Capital of the World!
No need for “ruff” pet travel when purrfect accommodations are available for animal companions. More than just “pet-friendly,” some hotels will greet Fido or Fluffy with a welcome gift and offer pet amenities and services like dog walking and pet sitting, even grooming services. Services like these may seal the deal for your hotel choice knowing that your pet can be attended to while you’re out of the room for several hours.
Vegas Hotel Pet Fees
Pet fees vary from hotel to hotel. Some properties charge a per-pet or combined weight fee, others charge a refundable deposit per night–it all depends, so check out individual hotels for their policies. One hotel chain, La Quinta Inn & Suites, in the Las Vegas area do not charge a pet fee, so if you’re okay with staying off-Strip, this hotel chain may be the right choice for you.
Beware of The Dangerous Heat!
Keep in mind, if you drive in Vegas, don’t just plan on leaving your pet in the car while you casino hop. Even nighttime temps during summer months can be dangerous for pets left in cars, not to mention the 120+ degrees it can get in a car during the daytime. Browse other Las Vegas travel tips.
Something else to consider when traveling in Vegas with Poochi is burned paws. Dangerously hot pavement in this desert climate can injure pet footpads. Be mindful to walk your pet on grass, in a shaded area, or on the cooler side of the street.
Finally, like us two leggeds, our four legged friends need extra water in the desert climate of Las Vegas. Always have plenty of water on hand and keep an eye out for pet heat exhaustion (heat stroke) like:
- Excessive drooling
- Increased body temperature – above 103° F (39° C)
- Production of only small amounts of urine or no urine
- Rapid heart rate
In addition to keeping your pets well hydrated, a good way to cool them down is by letting them lie on wet towel and/or use a handheld spray bottle to mist them.
A final pet point, be sure to confirm your “pet-stay room” when booking travel. Not doing so in advance can make for an unpleasant check-in attempt if pet friendly rooms are already booked up, not to mention increase your per night fees. Woof!
