An overwater hotel even made Expedia’s list, and neither you nor your dog will have to spend a dozen hours on a plane to get there. The Edgewater Hotel in Seattle, an overwater property located not far from iconic landmarks like the Space Needle, was built for the 1962 World’s Fair and has hosted rock stars such as Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, and The Beatles.

Hotel Chinzanso, a dog-friendly hotel in Tokyo, earned accolades for providing access to a private dog park. The fifth-floor dog park is situated within the hotel’s Serenity Garden, offering you and your dog a chance to find a moment of peace in a bustling metropolis.
