Looking to take a trip to Las Vegas and can’t stand the thought of leaving your dog behind? While Vegas isn’t recognized as a “pet-friendly” destination per se, there are a number of hotels on the Strip that allow dogs.
Dog-friendly hotels in Las Vegas typically offer an on-leash pet relief area, in addition to a welcome package with disposable waste bags, treats, etc. Pets are limited to walking the main concourses at a casino/hotel property and can’t hang out in the gaming, entertainment, or restaurant areas (unless a service dog).
Hotels on the Strip that allow dogs commonly charge an additional pet stay fee or require you to book a specific room type. Those rooms tend to be more expensive than your typical human-only room for obvious reasons.
Below, I’ll go over the pet policy for each hotel on the Las Vegas Strip so you know upfront whether the resort is dog friendly or not, and what additional fees exist, if any.
