If there's one thing Angelenos love more than the prospect of fame and the perfect tan, it's our furry four-legged companions. Check out our guide to L.A.'s best dog-friendly hotels, cafes, shops and parks. Fido will thank you.

There's no reason you can't enjoy your home away from home with Fifi in tow.
There's no canine (or feline) discrimination at downtown's coolest hotel. For a $100 non-refundable deposit, pets of all shapes and sizes are welcome--trust us, your 60-pound chihuahua will not be turned away. You and Rocco can kick back on the mezzanine, lounge in the lobby and simply dig the scene, provided no food is being served. (Who needs the rooftop, anyway?)
Hidden behind lush foliage where the 405 and Sunset meet, this under-the-radar pet-friendly oasis spans seven scenic acres. Each of the 161 guest rooms comes with all the amenities you'd expect from a place called Luxe, and pooches under 50 pounds are welcome to enjoy the digs for a $150 fee that's good for your entire stay.
Looking for a boutique-y hotel experience but need to stay near the airport? Whether you're coming from or heading to LAX, this towering hotel is an urbane option for dog-loving city slickers. The one-time fee of $40 is good for any pooch weighing up to 40 pounds and includes special canine treats that come in handy for a case of the midnight munchies.
Just a hop, fetch and a jump away from the ocean, this airy Santa Monica haven has a pet policy that's as laidback as its serene scene. For only $25 each, you can bring one or two of your four-legged friends--any size, no questions asked. Because humans aren't the only ones who deserve a beachside getaway.
This tucked-away Beverly Hills hotel is where Hollywood's power players lunch, lounge and, of course, move and shake--and it's also where pooches can get some A-list pampering of their own. There are beds, toys and treats for furry guests, as well as a just-for-pets room service menu and customizable gift baskets. All that's required of Fifi is to be 35 pounds or less; $150 fee for the entire stay.
Pets are always welcome at Westwood's witty, whimsical and hot-wired hangout. (As long as they're 40 pounds or less.) Dogs, cats, even birds are allowed for a one-time $100 cleaning fee and $25 per night. Sure, it might seem a little steep, but your pal will be treated to individual bedding, food and water bowls, toys and turndown snacks. The concierge can also provide walking, grooming and sitting services, as well as special extras such as birthday cakes, designer leash-and-collar sets and gourmet meals. Woof!
Must love dogs. This chic and low-key hotel hidden along Wilshire Boulevard's condo corridor is where your dog is not only welcome, but it won't cost you a thing! Yes, that's right. As is the case with every Kimpton property, dogs stay free regardless of breed, weight or size. So whether Sheba is a Great Dane, a pit bull or a chihuahua, she'll be nice and toasty in one of the 268 rooms here.
Pet shops and boutiques for dogs that deserve the best.
On a street where almost every shop owner has a pooch for protection, this amiable Fairfax ode to man's best friend boasts the goods to reward them. You won't find much of that sissy stuff here, so stop by if you're with one of the big dogs.
Dining options fit for a king, queen and canine.
Treat your pooch to a rub-a-dub, posed portrait or an off-leash stroll.
