Admit it – it’s no fun traveling without your furry companion. Even when you are away on vacation, if you are like us, you constantly worry about your pet. Some hotels realize how important your dog is to your family so they not only allow them to stay with you, but have rolled out a variety of amenities to ensure your pet has a comfortable visit. Here’s a look at our top five favorites in Boston:
1 The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common
Not all luxury hotels allow pets, but at the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common, they roll out the red carpet for your four-legged friend. From plush beds to pet bowls, they will furnish your room with everything your dog needs, including offering a listing of pet sitters that can keep your friend company when you are away.

2 Mandarin Oriental, Boston
Over in Back Bay, your furry companion can enjoy a stylish stay at the Mandarin Oriental, Boston. Book a massage for yourself at the on-site spa and you won't have to worry about your dog as you get pampered. From treats to toys, your pet will enjoy all the five-star treatment here.

3 Nine Zero Hotel
Overlooking Boston Common, the Nine Zero Hotel offers its own pet package, aptly named "Tail in One City." Book this package and your furry travel companion will receive a designer pet welcome amenity along with a pet bowl and pet bed for your pet's use throughout your stay. Pet sitting, pet grooming, pet walking and pet massage services are also available for booking through concierge.

4 XV Beacon
In Beacon Hill, the swanky XV Beacon Hotel pampers pets with treats and a cozy bed just for your four-legged friend. At turn down time, they will even bring fresh water for your dog. If you let them know you are going to need a dog walker, they can arrange one prior to your visit. Even better, 100% of your optional $25 pet donation will benefit various charitable pet organizations.

5 Onyx Hotel
Located near the TD Garden, The Onyx Hotel welcomes pets of all kinds (dogs and cats) for no additional fee. Upon arrival, they will greet your dog with gourmet treats and cleanup bags and present you with a menu of services designed especially for Fido. You can even arrange to have your dog walked or watched while you are catching the latest Bruins or Celtics game at the Garden.
