117 South 17th Street, Rittenhouse
Pup Perks: Treats, bedding, food and water bowls, Wag! Premium access for services

The hotel offers treats, bedding, food, and water bowls for all furry friends — no size or weight restrictions here. And it’s just two blocks from Rittenhouse Square, where your pooch can romp around on the grass. Even better: Guests get free access to Wag!

Not a lot of extra perks here, but if you’re looking to be near Reading Terminal and the Convention Center, and want your little dog along for the adventure, you won’t have to pay extra to do so.

To quote the Warwick’s website about their “pampered pooch” program (which, upon calling the hotel, doesn’t seem to exist anymore), “They’ll love hobnobbing with the elite dogs who make their rounds at the park at Rittenhouse Square – not to mention devouring a doggie bag outside of the adjacent Stephen Starr’s restaurant Parc Bistro & Café.” So, no beds or bowls, apparently, but you can’t argue with proximity to Rittenhouse and its fancy dogs.
