You will find more than 60 pet friendly hotels in San Francisco. All offer special amenities for your four-legged friends.

Discover a list of my five favorite accommodations for those traveling with their four-legged friends. They were selected based on their pet policy, location, and overall guest ratings.

You will find a range of options from luxury hotels to budget-friendly motels.

Since regulations change, make sure to call ahead before arrival to ensure they will still allow your pet to stay there.

1. Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square

Ghirardelli Square in Fisherman's Wharf

Address: 900 North Point Street, Suite D100

The Fairmont Heritage Place is a luxury lodging option at the famous Ghirardelli Square. This hotel offers 51 two- and three-bedroom luxury apartments in the Fisherman's Wharf neighborhood.

It's number one on the list because it's SF's highest-rated five-star hotel. In addition to allowing pets, each unit offers a kitchen area as well as separate living and sleeping spaces so you'll feel just at home.

This is an excellent option for families traveling together. You can all have your own space and still hang out together in the privacy of your own apartment.

Animal Policy

The Fairmont Heritage Place welcomes two pets up to 80 pounds for an additional fee of $75 per stay per dog.

Like many other pet-friendly hotels in San Francisco, they do have a few restrictions and exceptions in their policy. You will also need to call in advance if you plan on bringing your dog or cat along so that they can provide you with a special room.

They have special crates so your pet can be left in the room.

The Maritime National Historical Park is right across the street from this hotel, making it easy to take your dog out regularly. You do need to have your dog on a leash in this park.

The next of the pet-friendly hotels in San Francisco is also in the popular Fisherman's Wharf neighborhood. The Argonaut is one of my favorite places to stay and sits in the old Cannery Building right near the water.

This four-star hotel is so pet-friendly that they even say they wear their "puppy love" on their sleeves! Only dogs are allowed here, and there is no size restriction.

Their policy is simple; there are no size restrictions or additional charges. They try to keep all pet guests on the third floor since this is the floor where you can access the Park Terrace, a small 'hidden' park on the top of the building next door.

They charge $75 per pet, with a limit of two pets per room.

You can access a park from the third floor of the hotel. The next best option is Union Square, about two and a half blocks away.

4. Hotel Triton San Francisco

Hotel Triton SF

Address: 342 Grant Avenue

Nightly Rates: From about $150 - $450

Hotel Triton is one of the less expensive pet-friendly hotels in San Francisco. This three-star hotel is located in the downtown area, within walking distance of Chinatown and Union Square.

This is another place where your four-legged friend is always welcome.

Alternatively, if you want to let your dog run around more freely, there is an off-leash dog park called Jefferson Square, about 1.6 miles away.

Additional Amenities

In addition, here are some of the top amenities at this hotel for you:

  • Free wireless internet
