Have you ever wanted to take a vacation, but couldn’t bear to be parted from your furry family members? This problem is all too real for many pet owners across the United States. A lot of  hotels do not allow pets, unless they are registered service animals, and boarding options can be costly and inconvenient. Fortunately, there are a number of pet friendly hotels in the Minneapolis area, so you don’t need to leave your fur-babies behind!


AC Hotel Minneapolis West End

This hotel ensures that you don’t have to sacrifice style to travel with your pet. All of the family will love this sparkling, spacious facility and all the amenities it has to offer. There is a non-refundable cleaning charge for each stay, and a maximum of one pet per room. If these conditions suit, though, this is a fabulous option with lots of amenities.

Staybridge Suites Minneapolis, Maple Grove/Arbor Lakes

Staybridge policy permits two pets of any size as long as you pay a fee, which is calculated based on how many nights you are staying. Remember to indicate that you would like a pet friendly room during the reservation process. This hotel is located next to Central Park of Maple Grove - a park, playground, and activity hub for the community - so you can walk your dogs in a relaxing setting and with ease.


Staybridge Suites Minneapolis, Bloomington

Every single room in this hotel is pet friendly, so you don’t have to worry about special requests when you book. Guests can have two pets, but there are weight restrictions, so double check their policies before making your reservation to ensure your pets meet the guidelines and standards. As is the case at other Staybridge properties, a cleaning fee is calculated based on the number of nights you stay. 

Staybridge feels like a home away from home, as suites have a living area, work space, and kitchen in addition to the sleeping area. This is a great option when traveling with pets. This particular facility also offers a free shuttle to the Mall of America and the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.


Staybridge Suites Eagan Airport South, Mall Area

This Staybridge property is located only a few miles away from the Twin Cities Premium Outlets and the Minnesota Zoo. This property assesses a fee based on how many nights you are staying, and allows two pets regardless of size.


It’s always recommended that you review the hotel’s policy before you travel. Guidelines may be in place to protect you, your pet, and other guests at the hotel, and this often includes additional fees for cleaning. Some hotels limit the size of animals that can stay, and others require special forms to be filled out. Additionally, housekeeping can be a challenge when you have pets traveling with you. Many hotels require you to put a special sign on the door if a pet is in the room, and housekeeping will not enter if a pet is present. But by doing your homework before you travel, you can avoid any confusion or delay, and fully enjoy your travels.
