Where is the best place to stay while visiting this city?
Guadalajara is a big city and the answer depends on what your plans are while visiting.
Are you there to see the sights or are you just passing through on your way to another place?
Here are the two places we have stayed with our Toy Australian Shepherds – Olivia and Sofia.
- Seeing the sights – Quinta Don Jose Boutique Hotel
- Just passing through – Loft Hotel
Quinta Don Jose Boutique Hotel
QDJ hotel is located in Tlaquepaque, Mexico’s Arts & Crafts Capital, which is in the greater Guadalajara Metro area.
We have stayed at Quinta Don Jose Boutique Hotel a number of times.
It is one of our favorite places to stay with our dogs in the Guadalajara area.
This Pet Friendly hotel has a very nice garden and patio area.
All rooms have quick and easy access to this green space which is ideal if you are traveling with dogs.
The entire hotel is styled in cozy old-world Mexico charm with wonderful art work.
The beds are comfortable, bathrooms have ample counter space and purified water dispensers in every room.
The hotel’s Pet Friendly restaurant called TlaquePasta, offers chicken and rice meals for your dog plus delicious Italian food for adults.
Their margaritas are very good too!
There is ample parking on site in a gated garage area.
The location is ideal for walking to all the shops, restaurants and bars in Tlaquepaque.
Lovely colorful street art dots the entire area which makes dog walking fun.
The entire staff is very warm and welcoming.
I highly recommend QDJ.
Note: there is an additional charge for pets.
Located close to the freeways and Providence business district.
This ultra modern Starwood brand hotel is a magnificent glass skyscraper offering panoramic views of Guadalajara.
Aloft is happy to welcome dogs, up to 40 pounds.
Their pet-friendly program offers a special bed, bowl, and a doggie bag of delicious treats and toys, all complimentary to use during your stay.
If your dog is larger than 40 pounds, please contact the hotel directly to see about a waiver.
On the main floors – lobby level and ground level – there are dog bowls filled with fresh clean (agua pura) water for dogs.
The closest green space for your dog is outside the hotel and down the street.
