Pet Friendly Rooms and Perks

The more the merrier — we’re a dog-friendly hotel, and Venice is a paradise for your furry friends (sorry, no cats). Get ready for sunny walks through the canals or a quick jaunt over to Westminster Dog Park, conveniently located only one block away.

Giving Back

We offer complimentary treats, food and water bowls, and Kindtail Pawds (upon availability) to make your pet feel right at home; best of all, your $100 pet fee includes a donation to the Best Friends Animal Society, a non-profit working to end homelessness for pets across the U.S.

Give Your Pup A Getaway

Needing to find a place for your pet to hang during the day while you’re traveling? We recommend Rover Kennels, about a five-minute drive away — owned by a husband and wife team of dog trainer and vet tech, and offering both grooming and boarding (they also offer a second location in Culver City).  Mention the Venice V and receive 10% off all services.
