Legendary Los Angeles is known as the playground of the rich and famous, a magical land of sun, celebrities, and sandy beaches filled with both. And where the stars go, their pets follow, whether in purses, strollers, or using their own four feet. So when you plan your next vacation, there’s no need to leave your furry friends at home. They’re more than welcome in the “City of Angels”—in fact, pooches will be pampered just as much as humans in this town. Begin your search for dog-friendly hotels in Los Angeles right here on Travelocity and see for yourself. Then get started planning an itinerary you’ll both fall in love with.
Where to tour in Los Angeles with a pet?
If you’ve got a friend with four paws by your side, finding activities you’ll both enjoy is top priority. But not to worry! You’re more likely to see celebrities at The Grove shopping plaza than on any Hollywood bus tour. Enjoy the fountain show, stop off for a cupcake (sugar-free for Fido!), visit the farmers market, and reward your pal with a treat from the doggie bakery. This outdoor mall provides all-day fun.
Runyon Canyon should be on any active pooch’s to-do list. While you might not see any celebrity homes, you can check out the “Pink House,” a mysteriously unfinished mansion that’s been under construction since 1993. And yes, you may get star struck, too: Celebs from Justin Bieber to Natalie Portman have been spotted here. Of course, you could always take your pup to the Hollywood Walk of Fame to take a photo with the star of his favorite movie idol: Lassie! And once you’ve worked up an appetite, you may be wondering…
Any advice on finding the best sushi in Los Angeles?
You can find tasty tuna and scrumptious scallops nearly anywhere in the city, but for a truly authentic experience, spend an afternoon exploring Little Tokyo. As you wander around Japanese Village Plaza, the bright red beams of the Tokyo Watchtower and the simple exterior of the intriguing Koyasan Buddhist Temple will transport you to Japan itself. But wait…you’re here for the sushi, and you’ll find plenty of it. Asking a friendly local is always a good idea, or give yourself a little tour, peering in windows and reading menus until you find that perfect ambiance.
Of course, you’ll need to drop the doggie off at the spa. Don’t worry, many Los Angeles pet-friendly hotels cater to pups as much as to humans: Yappy hour and “paw”-dicures await your furry friend. Time flies when you know Sparky is being spoiled, and anyway, you deserve a delectable dinner, don’t you?
Whether you’re just dropping in for a long layover at Motel 6 Los Angeles LAX or plan to live in 4-star luxury at The Belamar, you’ll soon discover that this is one town that loves your best friend almost as much as you do. Just choose from Travelocity’s incredible selection of pet-friendly hotels in Los Angeles and start packing! Don’t forget the diamond-studded necklace and designer sweater…for the dog, that is.
