The best thing about living in a canine-friendly state? You can find hotels happy to host the entire family—including dogs. “We’ve had a proud pup-friendly tradition for more than 40 years,” says Henning Rahm, general manager at Limelight Aspen. “We just love dogs and, of course, other animals.” Here’s the scoop on four of our favorite hotels that host pups.
355 S. Monarch St., Aspen
For you: Limelight offers complimentary bikes, bike and beer tours, local whiskey flights, rosé Wednesdays, to-go picnic baskets and access to The Little Nell’s adventure program and Snowmass Club golf course.
For Fido: Limelight was the first Aspen hotel to allow pets. Today, amenities for your best bud include a dog bed, glow-in-the dark food bowl, a gift bag from the Only Natural pet store with a dog food sample and a Limelight dog tag for you to keep. And your pet can roam in the hotel with you except at the bar and The Lounge when food is being served.
Pet fee: $30 cleaning fee per night
1100 14th St.
For you: Recently renovated guest rooms. Time to hang out in The Study. Dinner at The Nickel. Need we say more?
For Fido: Dogs stay free and can enjoy a “Pawdicure” and massage from a canine massage therapist nearby. Mark your calendars for National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day (April 30, 2019), too: Teatro celebrates with a puppy brunch featuring puppy litters you can play with.
RESIDENCE INN BY MARRIOTT BRECKENRIDGE
600 S. Ridge St., Breckenridge
For you: The all-suite hotel has mountain views, fully equipped kitchens, a local shuttle service and is within walking distance of Main Street and Breck slopes (in the summer, there’s mini-golf, an alpine superslide, mountain biking and more at Peak 8’s Summer Fun Park).
For Fido: Lots of treats with the Play with Pups Package, complete with a “Dare to Play” welcome basket with gifts, toys and treats, food and water bowls, a pet door tag for your room and, for families, an activity guide. Starts at $179 per night, available through Dec. 14.
Pet fee: $100 flat fee for first pet for the entire stay, $50 fee for the second
THE RUBY OF CRESTED BUTTE
624 Gothic Ave., Crested Butte
For you: This luxury bed and breakfast, run by husband-and-wife team Chris and Andrea Greene and named after Andrea’s grandmother, has six guestrooms and one of the town’s best breakfasts.
For Fido: Each dog gets a comfy bed and blankets, food and water dishes, homemade treats and a promise that they won’t be crated for more than two hours at a time when you’re out—it’s the B&B’s policy.
Pet fee: $10 donation per night, which goes to local animal shelter Paradise Animal Welfare Society
