Houston City Place Marriott


Houston City Place Marriott draws in visitors from far and wide for its close proximity to City Place Plaza, a hub for family-friendly dining, entertainment and outdoor leisure in north Houston. The AAA Four Diamond property offers pet-friendly accommodations, with one pet welcome per room at a weight limit of 50 pounds for a $75 fee. This particular property is especially popular among visitors with pets because of its unique locale at City Place, which boasts 290 acres of parks and trails.

Woodlands Resort

The Woodlands

This wooded oasis located north of Houston in The Woodlands is as much a draw for locals as it is for out-of-towners, and it warmly accommodates dogs, too. The pet package includes a dog bed, branded toys and Milk-Bones, plus dog guests and their owners are welcome to take advantage of yappy hour on Thursdays from 5 to 7 p.m at Back Table, the hotel’s onsite restaurant. During this time, happy hour pricing is offered on the patio, and dogs in attendance are spoiled with treats and dog-kerchiefs. When it comes to walks, the sprawling property doesn’t disappoint. The resort houses two championship golf courses, lagoon-style pools and serene woodsy environs where guests can enjoy hiking and biking with their pups.
