It’s always fun to take our dogs with us when we travel. After all, they are part of the family. Who cares for them better than we do?
Greater Palm Springs offers plenty of opportunities to bring your beloved friend with you to vacation in style, sometimes with fringe benefits expressly for them.
Here are seven hotels ready for your four-legged friend to tag along.
Two dogs of any size are allowed in your room for no additional fee. You may also inquire about other pets on a case-by-case basis.
