Hotel Chaco is a luxury boutique hotel catering to art-loving travelers and their cultured pets – two dogs, up to 60lb each. In the historic Old Town, regionally inspired room decor featuring the work of contemporary Native American New Mexican artists adds to the authentic feel of this pet-friendly Albuquerque hotel. Check out Gallery Hózhó, located on the first floor, which holds art exhibitions and has unique gifts available for purchase. Hotel Chaco’s rooftop restaurant, Level 5, serves environmentally sound cuisine focused on New Mexican and Latin American ingredients with an international flair. For something more casual, check out Albuquerque’s first food hall, the Sawmill Market. It’s a trendy warehouse filled with eclectic dining options, such as Japanese waffles, and is located across the street.

This former brothel and saloon welcomes beer-lovers as well as connoisseurs of all things fun and funky. In the New Brew District, the historic Wells Park neighborhood is home to 11 breweries, distilleries and taprooms, not to mention Albuquerque’s most interesting restaurants. Accommodations at the Painted Lady are one- or two-bedroom apartment-style suites that include quirky decor, private patios and full-size kitchens. There’s a daily Hoppy Hour – yes, you read that right – to try the brews and meet new friends around the fire pit. It’s also reportedly haunted – book the Beers & Boos package for your very own EMF detector to use throughout your stay. Up to two well-behaved pets are allowed per room.

Hotel Andaluz Albuquerque – for a Spanish-style stay

Make sure to try the award-winning New Mexico spiced duck fat fried oysters, served with green chili and chorizo. Two dogs of any size are welcome per room.

If you’re searching for a North Albuquerque pet-friendly hotel, book your furry family into the Courtyard by Marriott Albuquerque. It’s located in the city’s Journal Center Business Park, right off of Interstate 25 and Route 423. You’ll find plenty of open-air balconies, a landscaped courtyard and an indoor pool. The Courtyard by Marriott Albuquerque has on-site dining available at the Bistro, but you might want to check out the highly rated casual restaurants across the street: Marigold Cafe for tacos with a twist or Restoration Pizza for a slice and an ice cream float. After dinner, bring the pups and kids over to North Domingo Baca Park, a leash-free dog park, skate park and picnic area only seven minutes away.

If you are a brave soul traveling with more than two dogs, save the address for the Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown immediately. Not only do they welcome three dogs per room, they’re located right off of Route 66 no annoying detours required. The modern spacious rooms have workstations and scenic mountain views, but who wants to be stuck inside – especially with three dogs? Take those pups over to the Arroyo del Oso Park –it’s the favorite local spot to let the dogs run on the grass in the cool of the high-desert evenings, and under a 10-minute drive from the hotel.

The Querque Hotel – for a location with easy access

This conveniently located Albuquerque hotel is also pet-friendly. Situated at the junction of Interstate 25 and Interstate 40, you’re well-placed to explore the rest of New Mexico, but why not start in the hotel itself? Rustic beams and an adobe fireplace in the lobby bring a New Mexican vibe to the space. The brightly decorated rooms feature mini-fridges for added convenience, but there’s also a good choice of local casual food options nearby – try Stripes Burrito Company for a military-themed Mexican dinner. The Querque Hotel welcomes up to two pets per room and offers complimentary breakfast, free parking and an indoor pool.
