I do not know about any hotels in the old town of Las Palmas and I do not know about any hotels which allow dogs to stay. There are many nice hotels and apartments on las Canteras beach, which is either an hour walk to the old town/ a 6/7 minute bus ride or a Euro 6 taxi ride.I traveled to the island with 2 friends and we visited much of the northern part by bus (a very cheap and punctual service) and only found the need for a car on the day we visited the Caldera (in the centre of the island) as that would have necessitated changing buses and waiting around.

When you come out of the cruise terminal, beyond security keep walking straight ahead (there is an entrance of the muelle shopping centre on the right) and when the road goes round to the right there is a taxi rank just there, 5 mins walk from the cruise ships. Taxis are metered and cost about €8 and take about 10 mins. (You could walk but it's probably 4 miles). The Casa Colon is right in the heart of old Las Palmas (Vegueta) so you can wander from there to the cathedral (2 mins) and then the other area that you may be interested in is Triana, just very slightly to the north of Vegueta. it's the main commercial area but the main street (calle Triana) is lined with elegant buildings and it's easy to pick up a taxi at the end of that street in Parque san Telmo to head back to the cruise terminal
