“What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” while this popular media portrayal of Las Vegas no longer rings true due to social media and instant uploads, Las Vegas remains one of the most popular vacation destinations in the United States. Known as the “Entertainment Capital of the World” or its more sinister moniker, “Sin City,” it annually ranks as one of the most visited tourist stops in the world.
Within the city alone, the attractions are endless—the entertainment and gambling options in the mega-casinos and hotels on the strip alone can keep you busy for months. As the site of Hollywood blockbusters, like The Hangover, the city has a reputation of being the destination to party with your best friends and forgetting about all the consequences. However, the city also has popular family-friendly attractions if you want to go on a vacation with your loved ones.
Of course, loved ones should include your emotional support or service dog, and we understand the struggle of finding the right pet-friendly hotel that balances the luxurious Vegas lifestyle, your budget, and the comfort for your beloved pet. Here at US Service Animals, we believe your dog should be able to go wherever you go, so we’ve come up with a list of the best pet-friendly Las Vegas Hotels for your consideration.
