Nothing beats canine companionship. And even Fido needs a vacation now and then. Take your furry friend along to one of these pet friendly hotels, and watch his tail wag with delight. From organic dog treats to fluffy pet beds, these three Bay Area spots roll out the red carpet for four-legged guests.
Enchanté Boutique Hotel, Los Altos
The French chateau-inspired Enchanté Boutique Hotel is probably the most elegant pet-friendly hotel in the Bay Area. Francophile owner and dog lover Abigail Ahrens spared no expense in planning, designing, and decorating this plush South Bay gem where pups get as warm a welcome as their owners. Ahrens’ two dogs act as “canine concierges,” greeting furry guests with homemade organic biscuits, filtered water bowls, and perfectly sized pet beds. Treat your pet to a spa day at the neighboring Barking Lot, an upscale grooming salon offering ‘pawdicures’ and ‘coiffers.’ Or keep it simple and take your pooch on a stroll around Los Altos Village Park. The area also boasts several restaurants with big, dog-friendly patios. View ‘Pet Paw-licies’ at Enchante.
