the best dog friendly hotels in Miami

Top 15 of the best dog-friendly hotels in Miami 2020

With beautiful turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, pastel-coloured Art Deco architecture, lively nightlife, a strong Cuban and Hispanic influence and a vibe like no other, Miami, Florida is one of the most sought after destinations on the planet. Surprisingly for such a famous party town, Miami makes a great dog-friendly destination and the residents are bonkers about doggies from tiny chihuahuas to skateboarding bulldogs! Not all the beaches in Miami will allow your furry friend access as well but I’d recommend starting your day at the pooch-friendly Haulover Beach Park or Hobie Beach, go for walkies at Amelia Earhart Bark Park, shop together at Bal Harbour Shop, chow (chow!) down at one of the many dog-friendly restaurant (such as LoKal or Greenstreet Cafe) then have a pampering spa day at Dogtown – a hip boutique offering treats, toys, grooming, boarding and daycare if you fancy a bit of time to yourself.  Now you just need to find a place to stay….so here are our Top 15 of the best pet-friendly hotels in Miami…

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.

    Such wonderful hotels! I would surely accompany my Milano dog, Do they accept him?!
    I mean really, I tend to visit Miami coming days and your recommendations are just ON-TIME.
    Those hotels are not only dog-friendly but also price-friendly, in a way.
