Never leave the dog behind. That’s my motto as a new dog mom to a cheeky and adventurous golden retriever puppy named Whiskey. As a Portland local, I’m rediscovering the city through Whiskey’s eyes. In the short time he’s been a part of the family, we’ve made a pack of new friends and discovered that exploring Portland is just more fun with him by our side. Walking a block may take a half hour, but it’s about the journey, right? (Only a cat person can resist that handsome face.)
As one of the most pet–friendly travel destinations in the United States, Portland boasts plenty of cafes, parks, and breweries to ensure that no pup misses out on the fun. I find that well-behaved, leashed pups are welcome at most casual outdoor patios and spaces but it’s always a good idea to ask ahead of time.
Find pet friendly accommodations at one of our six downtown Portland boutique hotels: Woodlark, the Heathman Hotel, the Sentinel Hotel, Dossier, Hotel deLuxe, and Hotel Lucia. All Provenance Hotels come with perks just for your pup through our Very Important Pet program to ensure nothing short of a tail-wagging stay for you and your best friend. (Think: check-in treats, a comfy bed, bowls, a dog-approved room service menu, and more.) The best part? Our Very Important Pet amenities are included with your stay.
