Recently we brought you news of an international airline with a brand-new first class space for pets - a flying hotel if you will. Now New York City has gone one better - by creating actual hotels for pets! Ok, they're not exclusively for the pets themselves, they're for the owners as always, BUT the major difference between these and regular hotels is just how pooch, kitty and other-adorable-pet-friendly they are!
Now if you're anything like us, you won't have the time or money to fly to Manhattan and put you and your pet up in one of these exclusive hotels for the night. But, if you're one of the upper classes, you'll have all the time and money in the world. That's one of the reasons why we keep on playing the lotto - because one of these days we're going to enjoy that same flexibility, and be able to bring our furry friends along for the ride at the same time!
Snag yourself a multi-million Powerball lotto and you and your four-legged plus one could soon be relaxing in style at:
One of the perks of staying in any upmarket hotel is the room service menu - so it makes sense that your pet would have one to browse through too, each dish lovingly created by the Loews Regency Hotel's executive chef. And when they're done savouring their exclusive treats, they can walk off the extra calories on one of the nearby dog-walking routes, before putting all four of their feet up in their specially designed pet-friendly bed. It's a dog's life in NYC, that's for sure!
Not to be outdone, the Mandarin Oriental has its own selection of first-class pet services, starting with an individual gold tag for each of its four-legged guests. Add on treats, toys, a custom-designed bed and a room service menu on request too, and you have the recipe for a perfect pet getaway!
Looking for a hotel with that little extra something to offer? Then you're looking for the W New York - one of the city's most exclusive hotels, complete with its very own pets programme! Take your dog or cat for a birthday stay, and not only will they enjoy fun and games with toys and treats galore, they'll be spoiled with their very own birthday cake too! Add in grooming, walking services and dog sitting too, and it's a lap of luxury you and your furry friend will want to return to time and time again!
Indulge all your pet's desires with the “Pampered Pet Package” from the four-star DoubleTree by Hilton Metropolitan - your chance to show your pooch or kitty how the other half truly live. It's not a true vacation if you don't feel completely relaxed - and a package with a gift bag, soft blanket, travel bowl and exclusive collar is sure to do the trick and then some!
Think you and your beloved pet deserve some pampering? We know we do - that's why we're playing the lotto to make sure we enjoy all the luxury we can. Because while playing catch or tickling furry tummies at home is always fun, living the life of Riley in pet-friendly first class hotels is what we were born for! Let us know in the comments below which of these hotels you would choose to take your pet to.
