Best Pet-Friendly Hotels in Canada:

The Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver welcomes all small to medium-sized cats and dogs up to 50lbs. If your furry friend is above that weight limit, you can ask for consent from management. There is a cleanup fee, but that does not apply to guide dogs. Down the street from the hotel is Nelson Park where there’s an off-leash area. If you want to pamper your pooch, you could make a trip to the Pawsh Dog Spa for some spa treatments or you can pick out a new outfit at Barking Babies.
2. InterContinental Toronto Centre
The Very Important Pets program at the InterContinental Toronto Centre is there to ensure that your pet is well taken care of. Pets must be on a leash at all times in the common areas and the hotel concierge can recommend pet-sitter information if you need it. Nearby the hotel you’ll find restaurants that are pet-friendly, pet spas/groomers, and an animal hospital. If you’re looking to enjoy the outdoors with your pet, Toronto’s waterfront is less than a 15-minute walk away. The InterContinental Toronto Centre is one of the best pet-friendly hotels in Toronto.
3. Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge
With many rivers, lakes, and trails nearby, pets staying at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge will be absolutely spoiled. Best of all, the hotel has a Canine Ambassador!

Pet-sitting services are available on-site for a fee of $15 per hour so you can enjoy the hotel’s services and the surrounding area worries free.
