FAIRMONT FIDOS: When we think of the ever-so-grand Fairmont in San Francisco, our mind does tend to wander to indoor rainshowers and potent libations. But that historic hostelry also makes a good stay for dogs and their people, says Travel & Leisure. T&L cited the mini bar especially for pets as one feather in the Fairmont's cap.
OTHER HOTELS, TOO: While the Fairmont is the only specific hotel in California mentioned, two chains with several Golden State properties got Travel & Leisure shout-outs: Kimpton and the W. We're sweet on Maverick, the Director of Pet Relations at Palomar, a Kimpton property in San Francisco.
ONE LAST THOUGHT: If the Fairmont did wear a cap -- see paragraph #1 -- we imagine it might be full of faux peacock feathers. Maybe with a little chic brim to one side. Agree?
