Luxury pet hotel industry expands with new US offerings
Following the success of its first property in Hollywood, D Pet Hotels, a luxury hotel catering only to dogs, is heading to New York and Scottsdale, Arizona, this summer. D Pet Hotels opened in Scottsdale on August 15, offering five-star services such as fully air conditioned indoor dog parks, chauffeur services in cars by Lamborghini and Porsche and an in-house boutique carrying organic food and treats, luxury beds, bowls and bags. The 10,000 square feet New York hotel, located in Chelsea, will open this month, offering rooms with full-size beds, DVD players and flat-screen TVs, as well as a doggie gym with a dog treadmill, a lounge, a spa, chauffeur services and a retail boutique. D Pet Hotels offer day care services as well as rooms for boarding, from standard suites to sensational and "ubber" suites. The spa menu includes "pawdicures" and oil treatments for dry coats. The fitness service offers a private fitness trainer and a chef-made meal including brown rice with vegetables, lamb or chicken. Luxury pet hotels providing quality care for furry friends are becoming more and more popular. The five-star luxury pet hotel Pooch is opening a dog hotel in Dallas on August 18 offering amenities such as the "Spaw," massages, "pad-dicures," facials and tooth-brushing. In the Brazilian city of Bello Horizonte, two entrepreneurs are building an eight-story love hotel for dogs. According to Condé Nast Traveller, the siblings are investing around $1 million in the project that will include a fitness center and rooms with heart-shaped mirrors, red cushions and dimmed lighting. Last year, the Hanrob Hotel located next to the airport in Melbourne, Australia, opened its door to pet-owners looking for a place to leave their pets while traveling. The hotels offers 10 luxury suites, all with TV, push button sliding glass doors and personal automatic fresh water drinkers. Pets staying at the Hanrob Hotel can enjoy spacious runs, play yards, doggy daycare, dog training and under-floor heating.
