The Eldorado rolls out the red carpet for well pedicured paws—special bedding, food bowls and most importantly (to my food obsessed pug) first class pet treats. Local neighborhood dog bakery, Pooch Pantry, makes organic freshly baked doggie biscuits, which were included in our Golden Paws Club gift bag. The hotel also provides a list of pet sitters, local vets and pet stores.
We received an exceptionally warm welcome from all staff including parking valet ,Joe, front desk reception personnel and concierge, Dachelle.
The lobby is impressively urbanely chic—it looks much better in person than on their website. The Agave lounge is a popular spot with well-heeled locals and has a very comfy and intimate ambience featuring tasty and fresh small and large plate items (I enjoyed a very tasty and fresh tuna tartare). The bartender caters to a discerning clientele and his drinks did not disappoint (the pomegranate martini was super!). Chef Anthony Smith employs a hand-crafted chamber to dry age the beef served at the hotel's affordably priced Old House fine dining restaurant, adjacent to the lounge.
Our 5th floor deluxe king with kiva fireplace was peaceful and posh-warm rich woods, oversized chairs and the bathroom has a great roomy vanity (a nice feature for us women) and all the little extras you expect in superior accommodations—robe,complimentary grooming items, coffee maker and refrigerator. The real wood burning fireplace was such a treat during our stay in January when temperatures can plummet. The hotel staff provides ample firewood and are available to light the fire at your convenience. We enjoyed wonderful views of Santa Fe and the mountains from our private balcony with electric luminarias.
A super bargain in off-season. Our room was $139 and can increase to over $300 in peak spring and summer season.
The hotel does not offer pet friendly dining options at present but room service was excellent—food was hot, well presented and tasty (no extra charge for substitutions).
Free WIFI and access to fitness center, outdoor heated pool, sauna and whirlpool.
Parking is $24-pricey— but in heavily populated downtown area, the norm and the price you pay for an ultra convenient location (walk to shops, museums, etc.)
$50 per pet fee (maximum 2 dogs per room).

Dear Shelia W,
Report response as inappropriate
We are thrilled you had an opportunity to be our recent guest and shared your thoughts on Trip Advisor. I can't thank you enough for your kind words and recognizing our amazing staff. It will be my pleasure to share your comments with them as it will be most appreciated.
I am so happy that we could also accommodate your pet needs. I have two pampered pups myself so I well understand the need to have all the little extras available as it makes traveling a pleasure rather than a chore. We do hope you will have an opportunity to visit us again in the very near future as we want to be your favorite Hotel while in Santa Fe.
With regards from your friends at the Eldorado.
