Grand Suite at Enchanté Hotel

The Enchanté Boutique Hotel in Los Altos, Calif., loves all things French — and dogs. The hotel with 19 rooms opened in mid-April, bringing a European-style building to the small Silicon Valley town.

Outside, the three-story hotel has a mansard roof (just like classic buildings in Paris), iron grillwork on balconies, and recessed windows.

Inside, each room features antiques and fabrics that reinforce the French theme. In the hotel’s library, guests can lounge on sofas and overstuffed chairs around a fireplace.

You’ll find some Napoleonic touches too, like a light in the shape of the French leader’s hat.

Travelers with pets will appreciate the dog-friendly vibe and “custom-made dog beds.” Fleur de Lis is the on-site dog; most dogs are welcome, but size does matter.
