The Hilton Singapore
Hilton is a name synonymous with the high life; so you can imagine the dog-parents in the office jumping with joy when they heard the luxurious hotel opens their door for our pets (though they only accommodate small pets below 5kg). You just have to top up an extra $50 to your bill – a small fee for a quick escape with the fur babies. Situated right in Orchard Road, it’s pretty close to the serene Botanical Garden – ideal for a picnic with your pet! The rooms at Hilton are also pretty spacious, giving your pet ample space to run around all-day.

We love the fact that this swish hotel even provides a tiny bed and goodies for our pooch.
