Pet-Friendly Hotels with Pets on Staff

Bosco, the Cocker Spaniel
FireSky, Scottsdale, Arizona

Bosco was once a repeat guest at downtown Scottsdale's FireSky Resort & Spa, and, as the story goes, he became such a beloved party animal at this 204-room hotel that he was offered a job: Director of Pet Relations. As a cocker spaniel, Bosco sometimes feels a little conventional for this funky desert retreat's pop art colors and New Age lodge decor, but he's eager to help guests get their chill on by hosting a daily happy hour for pets and their people in the lobby bar.

Petiquette: The egalitarian FireSky welcomes cats, dogs, and even pot-bellied pigs, although only in one of the resort's five buildings (so guests with allergies can keep their distance). The resort's Bone Appetit package includes a dog walker twice daily and a special "doggy beer," called Bosco Brew, to help your pooch unwind. As at many of FireSky's sister properties in the pet-friendly Kimpton hotel group, loaner goldfish are available at the front desk—but aren't recommended for guests with a cat in tow.
