Vdara Hotel and Spa
The Vdara Hotel and Spa was built in 2009 in partnership between MGM Resorts International and Infinity World Development as part of a $8.5 billion complex.
The main attraction here is the resort’s spa and salon, which features a collection of 11 private treatment rooms, steam room, sauna, fitness center, smoothie bar and salon. Perfect for anyone who loves a good pampering.
You’ll be pleased to hear that pets are welcome at Vdara. Two pets are allowed per guest and in the case of dogs, they can be up to a combined weight of up to 70lbs. Here’s one lucky boy checking in with his owners:
Don’t try and sneak in your favorite feline though, cats are not allowed at the hotel. If you’re bringing your pooch, the hotel recommends you book the Vdara Deluxe V Dog Suite which is suitably kitted out for doggies.When it comes to prices, the hotel charges guests $150 per pet per night. This covers your pet’s accommodation and room cleaning services.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
The Cosmopolitan opened in 2010 and cost $3.9 billion to build. Since then it’s become an iconic symbol of the 21st century Vegas Strip.
The hotel boasts 2,995 rooms, a casino floor that covers 110,000 square feet and over 300,000 square feet of retail space. It’s a true shoppers paradise. There’s also the resort’s renowned 3,200 seat theatre venue which plays host to a diverse range of events including concerts by Sting and The Weekend to world championship boxing.
The hotel is super accommodating when it comes to guest’s pets too. Every room is listed as pet-friendly.
A guideline of two pets up to the weight of 25lbs are allowed with an extra charge of $56 per pet per night.
The only rules are that pets must not be left unattended in the hotel rooms and they are not allowed in the pool, restaurant, casino or gym.
When it comes to outside space, there’s a lush green fenced-off area close to the Bamboo pool where you can take your four-pawed pal for a walk in the sunshine.
Delano Las Vegas @ Mandalay Bay
This resort was re-branded as The Delano in 2014 thanks to MGM’s partnership with Morgans Hotel Group and it’s now one of the most sought-after hotels on the Strip.
The 45-storey building is home to 1,117 luxury suites and features an exclusive Alain Ducasse restaurant called Rivea, as well as a rooftop lounge called Skyfall with awesome views over the lights of Vegas.
The Delano is one of the most dog friendly hotels in town too. A maximum of two dogs at a combined weight of 100lbs are welcome to stay at the hotel. Each dog will cost you $75 per night.
The hotel told us that they recommend guests ring ahead before booking, just to check the availability of dog-friendly suites.
Animal lovers with cats or wackier companions will also feel at home here because the Delano allows guests to bring other pets, not just dogs. Be sure to check with the hotel before booking to confirm your pet’s needs are catered for though.
Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino
Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino is definitely one of the biggest casino brands in the world. It has 2,567 rooms and covers an area of 100,000 square feet. Britney Spears and J-Lo have resident slots on the casino floor and the resort is also famous for the Miracle Mile Shops and The AXIS.
It’s a very family-orientated venue so it makes sense that it offers some fun for pets as well. Two pets with a combined weight up to 50lbs are allowed and it seems like most animals are welcome but it’s a good idea to double check before you book.
Guests will be charged $50 per pet per night and there’s also an additional $100 deposit required. The deposit is refundable upon departure, though. As long as your fluffy friend has been good…
Westin Las Vegas Hotel Casino and Spa
Opened in 1977, this is one of the oldest hotels on our list. It’s been a popular destination for tourists from around the world for decades now and that’s partly because it’s on a smaller scale than most other Sin City venues.
The Westin Las Vegas has a modest 825 rooms and covers just 20,000 square feet but sometimes the best things come in small packages.
Two pets up to a combined weight of 50lbs can stay at the hotel and the additional charge for this is only $35 per pet per night. Just remember, pets cannot be left unattended in the hotel rooms.
