Pooch-Perfect Pet-Friendly Hotels in Toronto

Head to the big city with your pet in tow for a pet-friendly Toronto vacation you can both enjoy.

When you’re travelling the world, whether it’s a city break or an outdoor adventure, why leave your pet at home? While you could hire a pet sitter or find a place to board your pets, many world wanderers opt to bring their buddy along for the ride. 

If you own an adventurous pup who seeks a pampered lifestyle, just like his owner, I’ve rounded up a list of the best pet-friendly hotels in Toronto.

The Ultimate in Pampering for You and Your Pup


There’s no doubt that the Four Seasons Toronto is one of the swankiest hotels in the city, located in the posh Yorkville neighbourhood. The staff’s careful attention to detail in their service extends to both humans and their four-legged friends. Your dog will receive complimentary treats upon arrival. Furthermore, the hotel’s concierge will highlight the best dog walking routes with maps, show off the pet boutiques in the area, and illustrate the nearby excursions you can take together.

Ramsden Park, a nearby off-leash dog park, is a great way for your pooch to stretch his legs and get some exercise. It’s also a great way to socialize with local dog owners, too. Right next door to the Four Seasons (and belonging to the hotel), take your pampered pup for a stroll around the mist garden. During the summer months, cooling clouds of mist will drift out from grates in the ground, with a decorative etched wall as its backdrop. This fog spills out towards red chairs that are scattered throughout this urban park. It’s the perfect way to escape the intense summer heat or cool down at the end of a walk.

While you might be tempted by the luxurious spa at the Four Seasons, you can also treat your pet to a spa day down the street at the Tail Spin Dog Spa. Just as you can enjoy a soothing aromatherapy message or an illuminating facial at the Four Seasons, treat Fido to a haircut, ear cleaning, and even a pawdicure treatment. If you need some time apart from your pooch, they’ll even dog-sit for a half day or full day.

A Warm and Inviting Pet-Friendly Hotel Overlooking the Lake


At the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, pets are welcomed with open arms. This upscale hotel is a treat for humans and their furry companions. You’re invited to bring a maximum of two pets per room, and everyone will be greeted from the moment you arrive. When you check into your room, your dog can enjoy his own plush “Westin Heavenly” dog bed, as well as a mat with a food and water bowl. Your pup will also receive complimentary scoop bags for those moments when nature calls. The chef at the Westin Harbour Castle prepares freshly baked dog cookies, which I’m sure your best buddy will quickly devour.

The Westin Harbour Castle is located in the perfect spot right downtown, near Toronto’s Union Station, the CN Tower, and many other popular attractions. There are lots of green spaces for you and your dog to take a walk together, like the Harbourfront Centre and Sugar Beach. End your walk at Against the Grain’s a waterfront tavern with a patio that welcomes well-behaved dogs. If you’re looking for a fun outing, take the ferry across to the Toronto Islands where you’ll both be able to stretch your legs along the many paths, trails, boardwalks, green areas, and beaches.

Make sure you book your room in advance to ensure that a pet-friendly suite is available. Unlike many other hotels, there’s no additional fee or deposit for a pet to stay at the Westin Harbour Castle. This hotel has taken the term, “pet-friendly hotel” to the next level.

A Hotel with Many Nearby Places of Interest for Your Dog


The Broadview Hotel in the Riverside district welcomes pets with open arms. Your pet receives their own bowl, bed, and treats during your stay. There’s a dog park just outside of the front door, plus you’re within a short walking distance of the beach.

The nearby Beaches neighbourhood is incredibly dog-friendly, as you won’t be able to walk a few steps without coming across someone walking their companion. There are numerous doggy day cares in the area, as well as several pet supply stores for anything that your pet needs. Steps away from the Broadview Hotel, Fit Dogs is the ideal play place for your pup. They have a swimming pool built just for dogs where your pet can learn to swim, recover from injury, burn energy, or lose weight.

While your pet enjoys her own comfy bed, you’ll sleep on a luxurious Eurotop bed with silky linens. All rooms feature a vinyl record player, complimentary Wi-Fi, free coffee and tea, and a tantalizing mini-bar stocked with locally sourced goods. All pets stay at the Broadview Hotel free of charge.

A Getaway in the Middle of the Action


The Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel is right in the middle of it all, within walking distance of popular attractions like the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Rogers Centre. You’re also connected directly to the PATH, an underground network of shops and restaurants. Dogs are welcome to join you at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. As with many dog-friendly hotels, your furry friend will be treated to a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper dog bed, as well as an assortment of goodies in their pet welcome pack like food and water dishes.

Dogs up to 40 pounds can stay at the Sheraton Centre Toronto, but they can’t be left in the room unattended. But, if you’re in need of a dog sitter, speak to the hotel’s concierge and they can arrange one for you. Alternatively, the K9 Spaw is a short walk away, and it’s a convenient stop for busy pet parents. Their services include pet daycare and boarding (including on-site surveillance cameras so you can watch your dog while he’s there), customized spa packages, dog walking, and pet grooming.
