As Dallas is the cultural hub of north Texas, it doesn’t come as a surprise that it has several hundreds of pet friendly hotels. However, visitors and Dallasites don’t want to stay at just any hotel but rather one of the top 8 pet-friendly hotels in Dallas.

Alla’s is pet-friendly but you have to book in advance for the staff to prepare a special room. Both dogs and cats are welcome and you can leave them in the room while you explore Dallas.
