Dog Policy

DOG FRIENDLY ROOMS AT THE SWAN HOTEL

We accept all types of dogs without size, breed, or weight restrictions at our dog friendly hotel in Port Townsend, as long as they are well-mannered and non-threatening. Fido is allowed in our Ground Floor Studios and one of our cottages. A pet fee of $25/night per dog applies. We offer complimentary dog treats, a variety of dog supplies (just in case the food bowl got left at home), a comfy dog bed to use during your dog’s stay, and designated clean-up baggies. If you need help arranging a dog-sitter or dog-walker, we’ll be glad to assist. Stop by the front desk to pick up a walking map of dog-friendly areas/dog parks. Your well-behaved dog will be greeted as a welcome guest at The Swan Hotel, and be sure to check with any stores and restaurants for dog-specific rules before entering.

We’ll ask you to sign our Dog Policy form at check-in, which you can read in advance at the bottom of this page.
