“People love their pets and many can’t imagine traveling without them. But not all cities and hotels are created equal when it comes to accommodating four-legged friends,” said priceline.com’s Chief Marketing Officer Brett Keller. “We’ve created this list as a guide to help travelers find the best experiences no matter who’s along for the ride.”
Rankings were based on the number of hotels within Priceline.com’s network of Express Deals(sm) hotels that are listed as “pet friendly,” the number of off-leash dog parks per hundred thousand residents (source: The Trust for Public Land www.tpl.org), and the walkability as measured by Walk Score™ of each city.
