If you’re visiting kin in San Francisco and would rather avoid toss-and-turn nights on a pull-out couch, check out the seasonal deals offered by pet-friendly hotel brands such as Personality Hotels (Hotel Union Square, Hotel Diva, Kensington Park Hotel) or Joie de Vivre, with seven pet-friendly, no-fee properties in the city and eight others elsewhere in California.

Whichever your preference, you’ll have to hustle to make sure your furry companion is well situated during your absence over the holidays. Photo courtesy Kimpton Hotels.
