Which hotels are dog friendly?
I’ve been looking at the hotel ratings from a dog-friendly perspective, and it’s really helpful to understand what dog-safe hotels are, because a hotel’s rating is not the same as its overall safety rating.
The two metrics are not the exact same, and hotels with higher dog ratings are also subject to a lower overall safety score.
So, how do we rank dog-sensitive hotels?
First, we looked at dog-friendliness ratings in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
From there, we then calculated the overall dog safety score for each hotel, based on how many dogs are allowed in the room.
For example, in the United States, hotels that have a score of 4 or higher are considered dog- and pet-friendly, and thus they receive higher dog safety ratings.
This means that a hotel with a score above 4 would receive higher ratings, but also that the dog would have to be confined in the same room.
(In Australia, this would mean the dog’s owner would have a more restrictive policy.)
Then, we used this data to calculate a rating for each location.
So far, we have more than 4,000 locations worldwide, with more than 20,000 of these being dog-oriented hotels.
