Where to stay and play this New Year's Eve in downtown Seattle

If your New Year's Eve party plans include downtown Seattle and you want to bring along your four-legged friend for the festivities, here are a few Fido-friendly places to stay while you play.

1100 Fifth Avenue
Seattle, WA 98101
Reservations: 800.853.3914
Hotel: 206.624.8000

The pet-friendly Hotel Vintage Park has rooms available this New Year's Eve, with rates starting at $199. At the "Park," each pooch is greeted with organic Buddy Biscuits and hotel staff will watch your pal while you paint the town.

The Park's sister-property, Hotel Monaco (1101 Fourth Avenue Seattle, 206.621.1770), is also dog friendly, with rooms still available on New Year's Eve. It's a little pricier, starting around $260, but in-room amenities for you and your furry friend are worth the hefty price tag.

If you ring in the New Year a little too heartily, the Hotel Monaco invites you to visit Sazerac for a little hair of the dog, anytime between 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on January 1, to enjoy their Bloody Mary Bar (yum). Leave your pooch with the staff at the Vintage Park or bring him along! While dogs are not allowed in Sazerac, you can enjoy your libation in the Monaco's lobby area with your lovable Lab.

We have a couple of other feelers out there for more dog-friendly places to stay and play for New Year's Eve, so check back!

Happy New Year from all of us at Seattle's own CityDog Magazine!
