New York City is actually surprisingly dog friendly.

(You’ll want to sleep a little, after all! ) Not to worry — I’ve found 10 of the best dog-friendly hotels in NYC, based on their perks and amenities for pups and reviews from happy pet parents (and a few I’ve been eyeing for a “pup and me” staycation ! ).
