There are a number of pet-friendly hotels in the area to explore, especially if you are looking for a mini getaway and want to take in the sights of Kansas City. Although it can be great to explore new locations with just human companions, sometimes it’s hard to leave your pup at home. Fortunately, Kansas City in general is VERY accommodating for dogs, and having pet-friendly hotels in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the city is no exception.

Hotel Indigo – Crossroads
