Hotel for Dogs to Open in New York City

When a kennel just won't do, New Yorkers will be able to leave their posh pooches at the D Pet Hotel, which is scheduled to open in Chelsea later this summer.

According to the New York Post, the hotel will cater only to dogs, and will include a fitness spa, gourmet meals prepared by a private chef, and suites with full-size beds and flat-screen TVs.

Its 40 standard suites will have designer Kuranda dog beds, and eight “sensational suites” will have flat-screen TVs with DVD players (so the dogs can watch such canine masterpieces as “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” and “Fox and the Hound,” which the hotel stocks.) The two “ubersuites” have a queen-size bed, 19-foot ceilings and 42-inch TVs with cable. Day care is also an option.

While pets can chow down on the house kibble, gourmet fare — brown rice with vegetables, lamb or chicken — is also available.

While staying at the real-life hotel du chien, the pooches can spend their days in three doggy parks on the hotel’s upper floors. For an extra $60 per hour, staffers will even walk them around the neighborhood.

The D Pet Hotel will be located at 104 W. 27th St.
