Best Pet-Friendly Hotels in Midtown East

View all Pet-Friendly Hotels in Midtown East

While many New York hotels allow pets, some hotels really go out of their way -- offering everything from gourmet food to pedicures. But animal lovers take note -- not all pets are created equal. Most hotels allow only small dogs and gear their amenities specifically toward them. If you're staying in Midtown East and your best friend is a cat, an iguana, or a 110-lb. Great Dane, the Affinia Fifty will be the most accommodating. When booking at any hotel, be sure to let them know you're bringing a pet, and confirm their policies haven't changed. You'll want to be wary of steep fees, weight limits, and off-limits areas.

  1. Fifty NYC–an Affinia hotel

    Affinia hotels charges a one-time $25 fee for keeping a pet in the room -- but there's no weight limit and pets of all kinds are welcome. Food, water bowls, doggie sidewalk bags or cat litter pans, and a list of pet-friendly restaurants and resources are all part of the "Jet-Set Pets" program. The "Happytails Travel Dog Spa Amenity," available for an extra $15.50, includes skin moisturizer, odor remover, mosquito repellent, and a bad-breath zapper. The concierge can arrange everything from grooming and dog-walking services to gourmet birthday cakes and a pet taxi -- and even a pet psychic for your troubled parakeet. Rooms are spacious and the Peter Detmold Dog Run is just three blocks east at Beekman Place.

  2. Loews Regency

    As part of the pet-friendly Loews Loves Pets program, pets are treated to a complimentary welcome basket with a pet bowl and treats, and amenities such as cat or dog beds, scratching poles, litter boxes and food ordered off of gourmet pet room service menus are available for a fee. Unlike most hotels, which arrange dog-walking and pet-sitting through third parties, Loews provides these services in-house; dogs left in the room will be walked for $20, and the front desk will watch your pet for $10 an hour, which gives guests a lot of flexibility if they have to run some errands sans-pet. Pets are limited to two per room, but there's no weight limit and only a one-time $25 cleaning fee.

  3. W New York

    The W hotels have steep fees compared to other pet-friendly chains -- $25 per day plus a non-refundable $100 cleaning fee -- and have a 40-pound weight limit. The W's P.A.W. (Pets Are Welcome) program, however, does offers some great perks, including a pet tag, toy, and special pet snacks. There's even a pets' room service menu. The hotel's Whatever/Whenever requests can apply to pets as well as humans, and wee wee pads, litter boxes, leashes, Bow Ow first-aid boxes and more can be requested day or night. But there's nary a park or patch of green space within five avenue blocks of the hotel; it's about a 15- to 20-minute walk to Central Park.
