Since this article is all about pets, I thought it would be a great opportunity to include some photos of our team members’ furriest friends. I mean, who doesn’t love cute pet photos?

Scroll through to find the Bham Now Mascots sprinkled throughout this page. Of course, this isn’t all of them, but it’s a great preview.

Just because these hotels are pet-friendly doesn’t mean you have to leave Fido locked in a room the whole time you’re in town! Here are 10 places you can dine with your dog in Birmingham.

Note: Many of the listed hotels have individual specifications including pet fees and limits on the amount and/or weight of pets.
