This pet-friendly Kimpton boutique hotel allows dogs of all sizes. There are no additional pet fees. In addition, the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria hosts a Doggy Happy Hour in the spring and summer. Dogs on leash are allowed at the outdoor tables in the courtyard. The happy hour is open to dogs of all sizes between April-October on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It runs from 5 pm – 8 pm. You don’t have to stay at the hotel to visit the Happy Hour. The Doggy Happy Hour was begun at the Holiday Inn. Now it is a pet-friendly Hotel Monaco hotel where you can also stay with your dog while visiting Alexandria. They ask that dogs stay away from the bar area and keep their paws off the tables and chairs. Water and gourmet biscuits are served to your pets.
DogFriendly.com, with tens of thousands of places listed to take your dog to, will be releasing on it’s Dog News blog, Facebook page and on Twitter a list of 200 Top Places that you can take your dog in the U.S. and Canada. This list, while intended to highlight top places that are especially pet-friendly, is not designed to be the absolutely top 200 places that we could find, but a sampling of the top places so that all regions, types of attractions, hotels, B&Bs, vacation rentals, parks, beaches, shopping and more can be considered. No doubt each of you will find many other places not on this list or our full list of dog-friendly places at http://www.dogfriendly.com.

Please keep in mind that places often change their policies regarding dogs and thus may have different policies at any time in the future.
