Tacky PR lingo aside, the dog hotel concept seems like it could be a hit with frequent travelers who have used up their “phone a friend” lifeline and have resorted to boarding the dog at local kennels. We've seen all kinds of wacky promotional dog sh*t from hotels in the past, but the Hundepension seems to be looking at things in the practical sense. All things being equal, it would seem advantageous for travelers to be able to drop off and pick up their dogs at the airport.
Right? Would you utilize a similar facility? Depending on the reception of this venue, we could see more of these “hotels” begin to pop up across the globe. We're guessing the fact that there are only 25 "rooms" will make it pretty easy to maintain a high occupancy -- and thus a successful venture.
Rates start at $24/night with a $21 cage-cleaning fee. Apparently even dog hotels have resort fees now.
