Travelin' Jack here...New Mexico's Roving Bulldog Reporter. Here's the Pup-Scoop! La Fonda is THE place to stay if you want to be in the heart of the action and Santa Fe stylin'. This historic hotel is 100% pet friendly....all 174 rooms & suites! I, Travelin' Jack especially loved my welcome gift pack from "Emilia Poochie" that included my favorites--a squeaky toy and a yogurt dipped peanut butter gourmet biscuit plus lots of good local pet info. Now this is how to welcome a pet!
And I got to dine with my people in the pet-friendly La Cantanita indoor dining area. (It's in the lobby so it doesn't violate any health codes, but servers DO serve there!).
Other points of consideration"
-All Rooms Pet Friendly
-Pets Can Join People in the Restaurant Lobby the Cantanita and be served by the Wait Staff.

-La Terraza-the rooftop terrace area is available for pet enjoyment when it is not being used for a private party.
-Easy access to outdoors from many areas of the hotel.
-Rooms and Suites are VERY large and spacious-enough for a pup to romp in-room.
-Hotel is ON the Plaza and near the river and walking areas for and with pets.
-Staff is VERY pet friendly...welcoming pets throughout.
-Reasonable pet fee $25 per night per pet.
-Lots of interior public areas for walking the dog throughout the hotel...BUT beware! The dog is sure to get LOADS of attention! :)
I loved my Suite (#274). It included 2 LARGE rooms that allowed for me to do my laps inside in comfort! I had a balcony overlooking Santa Fe sites. The whole suite was decorated with hand paintings and Santa Fe decor throughout....and you can be sure this discriminating pup appreciated all the fine Santa Fe decor!
Yep, my stay at La Fonda was one dog-fabulous experience! I, Travelin' Jack, proudly give La Fonda my prestigious 5-Paws Rating!
