10 Best Pet-Friendly Hotels in Las Vegas
Las Vegas is a very pet-friendly city, with most major hotels and resorts welcoming dogs (and some welcome cats, too). You can even walk your dog on the famous Las Vegas Strip, but only between the hours of 5am and noon. When it's playtime, the city has over 20 off-leash dog parks, so there's probably one close to your hotel.
The closest dog park to the Las Vegas Strip is Western Trails Park, which is just south of McCarran International Airport. As a desert destination, pet parents should be careful during summer months, as the sidewalk, street, and other outdoor paved areas can be too hot for doggy feet for most of the day. Choose a hotel with a lot of shaded outdoor areas and green space for even midday doggy walks.

Luxury Pet-Friendly Hotels in Las Vegas
Some of the most expensive and exclusive Las Vegas resorts welcome pets. Aside from the sumptuous accommodations, many luxury hotels offer special pet amenities like play toys, pet sitting, and pet food selections on the room service menu.
1. Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas
The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas (located within the Mandalay Bay Resort) is a luxurious, gaming-free oasis in the heart of the Strip.
The Four Seasons is dog- and cat-friendly, for animals up to 25 pounds. There's a $75 per pet per day fee. When you check in, you'll get a pet bed and bowls in your room, and there's a separate pet room-service menu. The hotel even offers pet-sitting services if you need to leave your dog or cat alone and want them to have some companionship.
You get typical Four Seasons personal service and extremely luxurious accommodations. The rooms and suites have beautiful views of the Strip or city, and the hotel has its own exclusive pool. You also get access to the huge Mandalay Bay pool complex with its beach and mini water park.

Las Vegas' original luxury hotel is dog-friendly. You can have one or two dogs with you; one dog up to 40 pounds or two dogs with a combined weight of 40 pounds. There's a fee of $125 per dog, and you can't leave them unattended in guest rooms.
There are several pet relief areas outside. If you stay in the Bellagio Tower, there's an area near the north valet entrance to the hotel. If you stay in the Spa Tower, you're closer to the dog park at the Vdara resort next door.

3. The Mirage
This center-strip luxury hotel may best be known for its white tigers and its dolphin habitat, but dogs are also welcome. As with many Vegas pet-friendly hotels, only some rooms are designated as dog-friendly, and they must be specifically reserved in advance of arrival. There's only a limited number of those rooms, and once they're gone, you can't bring a pet.
The Mirage welcomes up to two dogs per room or suite with a combined weight up to 40 pounds. There's a fee of $125 per dog per night. Unattended dogs must be in crates.
For the ultimate in canine luxury, if you're really rich, consider renting one of the hotel's amazing villas. These are small mini-mansions with their own swimming pool and grass yard. They also come with a butler who can serve special dog meals from the room service menu.

Caesars Palace and eight other Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas resorts (Paris Las Vegas, Harrah's Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Resort, Flamingo Las Vegas, Bally's Las Vegas, Rio All-Suite Hotel, The Cromwell, and the LINQ Hotel) are all pet-friendly, and all offer what they call PetStay rooms.
The program at all the hotels includes in-room food mats, pee pads, and doggy dishes. Each hotel has at least one outdoor pet relief area. PetStay rooms must be specifically booked, and not all rooms are dog-friendly. You can select a PetStay room when booking online or via the phone. Pets must be present at check-in and must be crated when you're out of the room. They also must be crated during housekeeping, which can be arranged for a specific time each day. Dog crates can be rented for a fee.
Dogs must weigh 50 pounds or less, and up to two are allowed in each room. There's no specific up charge, but the PetStay rooms are priced higher than regular rooms (usually between $25 and $100 more per night). The hotels will also take an additional $100 damage deposit.

Pet sitting services are available via the concierge, ranging from a simple check-up in the room to a full walk, feeding, and brushing.
The hotel has an outdoor pet relief and play area near the valet parking entrance. It's real grass but not fenced in, so you can't let dogs off-leash. You get a doggy amenity kit with snacks and treats on check-in, and there's a special doggy room-service menu filled with healthy options.
