Most pets seem to think that our homes are theirs — they just let us live there. But hotels were built for humans, right? Not all of them. These Portland hotels pamper pets as much as they do people, providing bedding, treats, room service and more.

Ace Hotel

“We accept pets.” That’s the policy at this laid back, hip downtown hotel. (Call them to ask, and that’s what they’ll say.) The Ace has neither fees nor breed, amoun, or size restrictions — just an understanding that you’re not going to roll up to the check-in desk with 10 St. Bernards in tow. That seems fair.

The Benson Hotel

One of Portland’s oldest hotels, this landmark has hosted presidents and diplomats — so it’s plenty good for your second-in-command. The hotel charges $25 per stay for as many pets as you bring. Pups get a care package upon check-in and can rest their heads on Tempur-pedic pet beds at the end of the day.

Hotel deLuxe

Ever think your dog should be a movie star? Okay, maybe a Youtube sensation? Here’s your chance to give them the star treatment they deserve. This hotel, inspired by the golden age of Hollywood, rolls out the red carpet for Fido and Felix alike. For a $45 flat fee per stay, pets can curl up on their own bed, are supplied with bowls, toys and treats, and can even enjoy some pet-centric room service.

Hotel Lucia

Dogs are all about relaxing, so why not kick back in style? This haute downtown hotel keeps all its guests well appointed and fully relaxed. Charging a $45 flat fee per stay, Lucia rolls out all sorts of amenities, like beds, bowls, toys and treats, and even offers a tasty in-room menu, designed to keep pets going strong on these exhausting jet-setting vacations.

Hotel Monaco

The only Portland hotel to employ a director of pet relations, this downtown hotel offers a variety of free amenities, including food and water bowls and a dog bed placed in the room upon arrival, spring water, treats and eco-friendly cleanup bags. You can also add on extra services, including grooming, dog-walking and even a pet psychic session. You can plan ahead with their pet registration form. Traveling without your pet? The Monaco will offer you a complimentary goldfish to keep you company during your stay.

Hotel Rose

Located across the street from Waterfront Park, Hotel Rose makes a great home base for some long walks. For a $20 daily fee, the hotel’s pet amenities include a water bowl, bedding and waste bags for up to two dogs.

Hotel Vintage

Cats and dogs get the VIP (very important pet) treatment at this recently revamped downtown hotel — and they stay for free. Upon arrival, your best friend’s name will be listed on the lobby’s chalkboard welcome sign. A bed, food and water bowls will be at the ready in the room, and the lobby is well-stocked with dog treats to pamper Fido on the way in and out. Plus, hotel staff is happy to provide a list of local pet service providers so your buddy can get as much out of their stay in Portland as you do.

The Mark Spencer Hotel

With an amenity package at check-in and a water dish already waiting in your room, this pet-friendly favorite does its best to make your best friend as comfortable as he would be at home. The hotel charges $25 per day, per pet, which includes furniture pads for your furry friends, walking route information and plenty of ideas of how to enjoy Portland with your pet.

McMenamins Kennedy School and McMenamins Crystal Hotel

For $15 per pet, per day, four-legged friends can get in on some of Portland’s favorite hotels. All sizes and numbers of pets are allowed, but they must be attended at all times, and on leash or in crates in public areas. That means they can accompany you to some of the more relaxing spots, like Kennedy School’s Courtyard Restaurant or the outdoor patios at the Crystal Hotel.

River’s Edge Hotel & Spa

This South Waterfront property offers a limited number of dog-friendly rooms, charging $50 per stay for one dog up to 50 pounds. You can feed your furry friend with an order from the hotel’s “Bark Bar” room service menu.

RiverPlace Hotel

Ideally located right next to Waterfront Park, this hotel ensures every dog has his day. Their complimentary pet amenities have no restrictions on height, weight or breeds, and their concierge will even recommend pet-sitting or dog-walking services if you want to explore Portland without holding a leash. Pet registration makes things easier.

The Sentinel

Vacations make it easier to re-connect with your inner self. But what about getting back in sync with your pet? In addition to a range of amenities like pet beds, food bowls, chew toys and treats, The Sentinel also has a library of books on everything from dog massage to pet psychology. The hotel charges a $45 flat fee per stay for pets.

Sheraton Portland Airport

Staying in Portland but looking to jaunt elsewhere? You and your pet can stay at the Sheraton Portland Airport hotel near Portland International Airport and Interstate 84, offering easy access to all the Mount Hood and Columbia River Gorge hiking you can do on four paws. The Sheraton has several designated outdoor lawns for dogs weighing 40 pounds or less. (Larger dogs may also be permitted with prior approval.)

The Westin Portland

Treat yourself and your pooch at the Westin in the heart of downtown. The hotel provides a signature Westin Heavenly Dog Bed, in-room food bowl and mat, doggie welcome amenities and even and “dog in room” privacy sign.
