International Dog Day is August 26. One way to celebrate is to treat your pooch — and yourselves — to a dog friendly hotel. Here’s a sample:
The Opus Westchester, New York
The 5-star The Opus, Westchester is located just 35 minutes away from New York City, and it always welcomes four-legged guests inside to stay. New York is a great place to travel with a pet, but even your furry friend will agree that it’s even better to have a serene escape after a busy day out in town. It’s the perfect hotel to be a part of the action but also relax in a comfortable and quiet environment. The Opus, Westchester loves it when guests bring their furry friends. At $150 per stay, they can bring a maximum of 2 pets with a combined weight of 100 pounds. Upon arrival, pets are greeted with their choice of dog beds, bowls and toys they can enjoy throughout their stay while their owners unwind with The Opus, Westchester’s various amenities.

Hôtel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf, Saint Barth
the five-star property Hôtel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf just launched a new Hotel for Dog Lovers package so guests can enjoy paradise with their pups which is perfect for International Dog Day on August 26th and all year. Amid tropical elegance that creates an atmosphere of leisure, restoration and relaxation, Le Carl Gustaf is the perfect place for animal lovers to bring their four-legged companions. Upon arrival, pooches will receive a VIP reception with a personalized bowl in the name of the pup, a bandana with the hotel’s colors and access to a doggie bar in their room and at the renowned Fouquet’s restaurant, created by 3-star Michelin Chef Pierre Gagnaire, which has made the journey from Paris. After a day of frolicking in the Caribbean sun and playing with their new splush toys, four-legged companions can have a luxurious night’s rest on a cushion and snuggle up in a blanket provided by the hotel. Visitors and their pooch can also explore the lively port with its tranquil alleyways and the natural sea pools of Grand Fond and Petit-Cul de Sac using a guide of restaurants and places that accept dogs on the island provided by the property. At Le Carl Gustaf, they take the stress out of traveling with a pup by offering daily dog walking, sitters, grooming and a room service menu by Fouquet’s catered to four-legged friends with meat, fish, and vegan dishes for an additional fee. The package will be available year-round with a starting price of $71.29 per night per pup. Please click here to view images.
