Swan Hotel - Port Townsend, Washington, 98368, United States

Traveling With Your Canine Companion

  • pug & his luggage

With two distinct Historical Districts, Port Townsend is a dog-friendly town.  Downtown along Water and Washington Streets, we have outdoor cafes for people-watching and many delightful shops for window-browsing.  Many of the Downtown merchants provide outdoor water bowls for thirsty pets along the sidewalks in warmer weather.  The area offers hiking trails, beaches and lovely Uptown neighborhoods for taking leisurely walks together while admiring the local flora and architecture.

Since we know how much fun it is to travel with your special canine companion and we appreciate that many of our guests travel with their dogs, we have made some studios and a cottage dog friendly.  Our dog-friendly rooms are:

Studio  A1
Studio A2
Studio A3
Studio A4

Cottage 4

Dogs must be safe around all humans, well-mannered and non-threatening. You take full responsibility for your animal and any damage(s) that may occur.  To ensure your dog is as comfy as possible, we also provide our Canine Companion Welcome Basket which includes:


• Use of dog bed, dog toys, treats, dog matt, water and food dishes
• Walking map highlighting dog-friendly areas/dog parks
• Biodegradable cleanup bags
• Towels provided for muddy paws and wet coats

A pet fee of $20/day per dog applies, and we’ll ask you to abide by a few additional guidelines during your time with us.  If you need help arranging a dog-sitter or dog-walker, we'll be glad to assist you.   If you have any additional questions, please give us a call.
