date night in the gaslamp the bed is fresh and comfy and the pillows smell nice and are comfy. Happy hour is such a plus and a grand deal. the food is good and it is a nice place for a night cap as well. Parking is pricey and there are extra taxes and such so don't forget to add it in your total.

What a nice surprise! We really enjoyed our one-night stay here. I booked the room as I wanted to hang out near a pool, before catching a very early flight. What a pleasant surprise to find this tropical oasis hotel in the middle of the marina, near good food, walking paths, the beach and oh-so convenient to the airport. ...

A little slice of aloha in San Diego Loved this hotel. I rate hotels on a scale of 1 to Four Seasons, so that's why Catamaran gets 4 stars, not 5. The ambience is very Hawaiian; laid back and peaceful. Romantic, yet family friendly. Not a party hotel. When I booked on Travelocity I mentioned it was our 10 year wedding anniversary and ...

San Diego County Pet Friendly Hotel Guide

The English moral philosopher Bernard Williams once said, “There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.” A truer statement we could not find. But it doesn’t have to necessarily be a puppy. A grown dog shows the same if not more affection to you than a furry little pup. Either way, it’s that love and affection your pet gives that makes you want to treat the fur ball to something special. And we’re not talking about a quick game of fetch in the backyard. We think your loyal companion would love to accompany you on your trip to “America’s Finest City.” Our pet friendly hotels in San Diego will ensure your stay is one to remember.

Where should I visit near downtown San Diego that’s pet friendly?

There’s plenty of places to visit near downtown San Diego that are pet friendly. Here’s a short list of some of the must-dos for you and your pet.

  • Balboa Park: The biggest urban cultural park in the country is a great place to go for a walk. The splendid architecture provides a perfect backdrop as you and your dog run about one of the many open grass areas that exist throughout the park.
  • Fiesta Island: Located in nearby Mission Bay, this sand dune-covered island —it’s not really an island—is a great place for your energetic pup to run freely. The two of you can play fetch for hours at long distances because of the amount of open space.

Though not pet-friendly, one place that is a must-visit for animal lovers is the world famous San Diego Zoo. Located in Balboa Park, this incredible attraction is a cut above the rest of the zoos you’ve visited. You’ll wander through this amazing animal kingdom passing through exhibits like Elephant Odyssey, Gorilla Tropics, and Panda Trek. Speaking of that last one, this is one of the few zoos in the world that houses and successfully breeds giant pandas. If you’re interested in getting a bird’s-eye view of the enclosures, go for a ride on the Skyfari gondolas and soar above the park like the California condors housed in the aviary.

What are the best beaches to visit in San Diego with my pet?

There seems to be an endless number of beautiful beaches to visit in this magnificent city. If you’re looking to mix sun, sand, and thrills, make your way to the friendly shores of Mission Beach. Lay out on the sand while the sun kisses your skin and take in the beauty that surrounds you. If you detect a scent of cotton candy and hear the sounds of carnival rides, those are coming from Belmont Park. The oceanfront amusement park has been in operation since 1925 and its flagship ride, the Giant Dipper roller coaster, will allow your inner child to properly escape for some much needed excitement.

If you’re staying at one of our dog friendly hotels in San Diego like the Fairmont Grand - Del Mar, you’ll be a short distance away from dog beach. This expansive stretch of sand on the border with Del Mar and Solana Beach is the perfect place for you and your energetic canine to run free. Closer to downtown is the city of Ocean Beach and another dog-friendly stretch of shore. And when the pooch is covered from head to tail in sand, take him into the water for a cool rinsing. Your dog won’t soon forget this day.

Sure, there are few things that are better than taking a trip with no one except yourself. It allows you to clear your mind. But it can’t hurt to bring along the friend who understands you the most and brings out your best. Travelocity’s list of hotels that allow dogs in San Diego includes the Hotel Indigo - Gaslamp Quarter and will provide you two with as much comfort as you’d find at home.
