D Pet Hotels is coming to West 27th street in Chelsea this month. The 10,000 square feet luxury dog hotel will offer rooms with full-size beds and flat-screen TV's with DVD players. The hotel will also have a doggie gym with treadmills, a lounge, a spa, a retail boutique, and even chauffeur services to drive dogs around in Lamborghinis and Porsches.
The boutique will sell products such as organic dog food, treats, luxury pet beds, bowls and carrying bags. The spa offers services such as "pawdicures" and oil treatments for dry coats. There is also a fitness service that comes with a personal trainer and a special meal prepared by a chef that includes brown rice with vegetables, lamb or chicken.
D Pet Hotels offers day care services as well as rooms for boarding that range from standard suites to "ubersuites," which have queen-size beds, 19-foot ceilings and 42-inch TV's for $200 a night. There are 40 standard rooms that start at $79 a night. The luxury suites, which include TV's and DVD players, cost $110 a night. Pets can watch titles such as "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" and "Fox and the Hound" on the TV's.
A walk around the neighborhood costs $60 an hour and gourmet meals go for $9.
