MainStay Suites Pet Policy

Pets are welcome at more than 80 MainStay Suites locations in North America. The standard pet policy welcomes two pets of any size for an additional fee ranging from $25 to $150 per stay. However, not all locations are dog friendly, and fees and weight restrictions may differ from property to property. Check rates and get the most up-to-date pet policies at all MainStay Suites locations on BringFido’s website or mobile app.
