The Out NYC Wants You In The Dog House
August 29, 2014 at 9:32 AM
Hospitality for pets is apparently “the fastest growing sector in the travel market”, which makes all the cute hotel doggies we’ve seen recently seem slightly less cute and slightly more cynical. Joking! Obviously nothing could make those dogs any less cute.
The latest hotel to jump on the furry bandwagon is The Out NYC, which has just opened some Dog House Suites – dog-friendly rooms attached to private courtyards – particularly handy for offleash activities or, we guess, doing their business. Even better, access to the courtyard is via a pet door, so they can come and go while you’re taking care of your own business. They’re not just any old courtyard, either – each has a dog house, fake grass, “faux fire hydrant” (not sure of the appeal of this one) and seats for you humans.
The hotel also has dog walkers, pet sitters and dog-friendly transport, and the suites come complete with your normal pet-friendly toys, cushions, and treats; but best of all they have dog cams, so you can watch over Fido while you’re out on the town.
Actually, probably what’s best of all is the price – the Dog House Suites start at $349.
