  • Please correct this post. I’m a long time Marriott member and am looking to switch. Most Marriott hotels only allow dogs and not cats. I’ve called several brands in the chain – Marriott, Sheraton, Courtyard and most it not all do not allow cats which is unfortunate.

    • Thanks for sharing your experience, Raymond! We’ll do some additional research and see if we can get more definitive information for Marriott.
