Whether you’re looking for a staycation in your own city or travelling, Hotel X is one of the best dog-friendly hotels in Brisbane that will give you the ulti-mutt VIP (Very Important Pooch) service.
Situated in Fortitude Valley, the heart of Brisbane’s fashion, nightlife and restaurant scene, you’ll be within an arm’s reach of the best the city has to offer. And if your pup has a taste for the finer things in life, they won’t be disappointed with Hotel X’s ‘Fetch & Stay’ package.
Indulge in luxury with a beautiful standard balcony room, comfortable pet bed, food and water bowls, doggy clean-up bags and a dog-friendly mini bar. Yes, you heard that right – Fido gets their very own mini bar to satisfy any late-night cravings. From healthy probiotic puppuccinos to delicious tuna and coconut balls, fruity banana drops, and more, your pup will be set for a relaxing night in.
Or, if you want to explore Brisbane’s nightlife with your pup, get ready for a jam-packed night out on the town! Start with a hearty pub dinner of pizza, burgers, chicken wings, and more at Yard Doggs or Pig N Whistle while enjoying your favourite bevvy in their dog-friendly beer garden. If Fido gets food envy, head to The Wickham to order a doggy meal from their dedicated ‘Yappy Days’ menu (only available on weekends). From fried rice with crispy pig ears to meatballs with brown rice, they won’t want to share.
Too early to call it a night? Stop by Brew Dog for a drink or two. With 20 different craft beers on tap and a variety of different wines, spirits, cocktails, and ciders, you’re bound to find something that tickles your fancy. If you don’t mind a short drive, check out these other dog-friendly pubs in Brisbane.
Made it back to the hotel but feeling a little nibbly? Don’t worry! Hotel X wouldn’t be the ultimate dog-friendly hotel in Brisbane if it didn’t have 24/7 room service! Order a small or big bite to fill you up, and if Fido needs to pop out to do their business, there’s a convenient potty station on the balcony, so you don’t need to get out of your comfy robe. Then it’s time to settle in for your favourite movie or tv series and gently fall asleep in the spacious king-sized bed.
Once you and Fido have both rolled out of bed, it’s time to start the day! If Fido is still happily dozing away in his comfy spot, you can brew your perfect cup of coffee while you wait, thanks to your very own Lavazza coffee machine.
After an hour or two (or three – depending on how lazy your pup is), head out for your first walk of the day! With plenty of dog-friendly parks in walking distance, you can head to New Farm Park (also known as Powerhouse Park) or Victoria Park for some off-leash fun.
On the way back to the hotel, fuel up at Adonis Cafe & Bar with one of their lip-smacking signature dishes – marinated char-grilled lamb cutlets, pan-seared barramundi or naked Greek yiros. There are plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options too, so sit outdoors with your pup and enjoy the sun.
Oh, and don’t forget to order from the Doggy Menu! Cool Fido off with a Puppelato (coconut milk-based gelato), or reward him with a Doggy Doughnut, Rocky Road or Iced Vovo. While you’re in the area, check out some of the other awesome dog-friendly cafes in Brisbane.
Once you’re back in Hotel X’s elegant lobby, it’s time to say farewell. Although it’s hard to let your vacation come to an end, you can rest easy knowing you’ve found your favourite dog-friendly hotel in Brisbane that welcomes your pup with open arms. Till next time!
