Residing in a historic Portland building nicknamed “The House of Welcome,” the boutique-style Woodlark offers furry travelers first-rate amenities and stylish accommodations in a convenient downtown setting. Canine guests receive comfy dog beds, feeding bowls, chew toys and tasty treats upon arrival. Retro-modern rooms and suites feature complimentary WiFi, cozy seating nooks, work desks and walk-in rainfall showers. Peruse works of modern and abstract art in the hotel’s public spaces, dine at one of three on-site eateries, and utilize a complimentary bike rental to explore the city.

Nestled in the nearby Northwest District, Cycle Dog is a great spot to sample a refreshing craft beer while Fido relaxes at your feet. For a fee of $6, pups can also play in the attached off-leash dog park. Proof of pet vaccinations is required.

Woodlark accepts pets of any size for an additional fee of $25 per pet, per stay.
