Real Estate In Orlando





If you’re coming to town with a pet or willing to take your pet with you to dine or roam around in Orlando. Fear not, there are many pet-friendly havens among Orlando’s seemingly innumerable places to be at and enjoy. As it’s hard to leave for when the last image you have is of your four-legged best friend staring out the living-room window with those sad eyes as you drive away. You don’t have to leave Spot behind any longer, he can finally join you on your adventures.


Our pet-friendly guide will help you for perfect weekend escapes with your pooch, kitty, bird, or fish. These places not only welcome your pets, but they offer many services to help make your stay more relaxing. Things like on-site grooming and complimentary dog walking are some of the amenities provided. In most cases, you’ll also be near outdoor spaces like dog parks if you both need some exercise, as well as pet-friendly restaurants.



Pet Friendly Hotels in Orlando

Don’t ever feel guilty about leaving your beloved Maximus behind at home again. Our pet guide will help you and your family enjoy a wonderful time together. Some of the best pet friendly recommended accommodations are:


·         Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World


Petite pets of 17 pounds or under (we're looking at you, designer purse dogs!) are primed for a luxurious experience at the Four Seasons Orlando Resort at Walt Disney World Resort. In-room bowls and a sumptuous "Pampered Pets" room service menu ensure they'll feel welcomed. From the "Haute scrambled eggs, rice, veal stock to the boiled chicken and steamed broccoli your spoiled pet will be as delighted as you are amused. Beyond the dog- and cat-centric, of course, it's a Four Seasons, where happy owners, too, luxuriate in amenities like the pools one ideal for families, the other just for grown-ups, top-tier restaurants, sumptuous spa and superb views of the Disney fireworks.


·         La Quinta Inn & SuitesConvention Center Orlando

Clean rooms, great rates and perhaps best of all for pet owners: no fees! Not at this super-Universal-and-convention-center-convenient location or any of this brand's other properties. The La Quinta Inn & Suites Orlando Convention center accepts a maximum of two pets per room, but there are no weight restrictions for other properties, its best to call as policies may vary. You'll need to remember your furry friends' food, of course, but come the morning, its human guests can enjoy a free breakfast after their mandatory morning walks with Rover. Free high-speed Internet access means you'll be able to research local pet-sitting and walking services if need be or peruse the city's many pet-friendly restaurants!

·         Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista


A colorful-fun splash zone and 24-hour arcade are among the family-friendly amenities that make this Rosen Hotels property a Disney Good Neighbor Hotel, but its offerings extend to the pet-friendly as well. In fact, Rosen's entire Orlando portfolio welcomes pets, but Clarion's policies are among the most welcoming. Two pets of up to 50 pounds each can stay alongside their human family members and a super-reasonable pet fee just $15 for each animal make the Clarion Lake Buena Vista an affordable option, as well. What's more, they're running a VIP Pet Package with waived fees, special rates and other benefits on select nights through most of 2015! Check their website for more information.

·         Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando



Since the introduction of the Loews Loves Pets program some 15 years ago, the brand has hosted many beloved beasties in its properties around the US. The Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort is no exception. In fact, kitties and puppies even received a welcome letter from the General Manager upon check-in, along with an area map on which dog-walking routes are highlighted. Need something? You'll likely find it in your room amid an amenity complete with pet placemats, food/water bowls, toys, treats and more. And if you're short on kibble, rooms service will deliver dinner -- hot and/or cold entrees! -- right to your door. Orlando properties charge a flat pet fee of $50 per day $150 maximum.


·         Aloft Orlando Downtown

The Aloft Orlando Downtown is clean, bright, modern and colorful and despite your furry best friend's lack of appreciation for the latter, he or she will greatly appreciate the brand's ARF program! Aloft extends the "friendly" part of its pet-friendly policy to your wallet. What does that mean? No fees. Zip, zero, none. Guests with pets will be required to sign a waiver and once this formality is done, both you and Fido will appreciate the special bed, bowl and doggie back of "woof-alicious" treats upon check-in. Even dog toys! Pets over 40 pounds need GM-approval; call ahead to discuss if need be.

Orlando can be said to be the center of the Florida "
doggy dining" revolution. When Florida health inspectors began blocking restaurants here from allowing dogs at patio seating legislation was passed and signed by the governor permitting Florida dogs at patio restaurants when approved locally. It has been approved locally in most of Florida now. Orlando has many outdoor restaurants where you can take your dog. A detailed guide is located in our PetFriendly Directory Post. You can find dog-friendly restaurants, stores, spas, clothing, supermarkets and much more.  We hope this pet friendly guide for pet care in Orlando will be helpful to you.
