In honor of National Love Your Pet Day, we combed the globe in search of luxury hotels that cater to guests of the canine kind. These five stood out in particularly as places where personal service is definitely a big perk for your pooch.
The Peninsula Hotel, New York
Stay in the heart of The Big Apple with your furry friend in tow. The Peninsula puts you steps from 5th Avenue, Central Park and Rockefeller Center. Dog friendly for a fee, the Peninsula charges $150 extra per stay for pets, and they can’t weigh over 65 pounds. But the five-star hotel puts everyone in the lap of luxury with apartment-styled rooms and suites wrapped in a neo-classical charm. Rooms start around $695 per night.
Hotel Nikko, San Francisco
The art of Asian hospitality is the tagline of the Hotel Nikko, a chic getaway where everything is done with a bit more flair. The 24-hour health club is 10,000 sq. ft. and houses a fitness center, steam room, shiatsu massage and an atrium-style pool. If you need proof of their dog loving ways, there’s a 2,200 sq. foot outdoor terrace, complete with a dog run. So, there’s plenty of fresh air and natural light for your four-legged friends.
12 Apostles Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa
A worthwhile stopover on Cape Town’s most scenic route is this five-star boutique hotel that’s always up for adventure bordered by Table Mountain National Park and the Twelve Apostles mountain range. You and your fur baby can marvel at the ocean and mountain scenery, do a bit of whale watching, or explore the balmy beaches of Campus Bay. The hotel has plenty of dog beds, bowls and special pet menus on hand, but your pet must be under knee height. There’s a small damage deposit, returned to you after your stay.
Hotel Cappuccino, Seoul, South Korea
Trendy travelers will feel at home in South Korea’s capital city, which caters to millennial travelers who don’t like rules. Urban through and through, the hotel rooms are flooded with white and grey and minimalists in their compact comfort. Here, your canine companions get access to the Bark Room, with custom pet beds made from birch, toys and even pajamas for dogs. That’s called service. Solve the late night cravings by calling room service and asking to have a dental chew delivered (and a night cap for yourself).
The Ace hotel London, England
This hipster haven in a busy spot in the city with some uncommon amenities for trendy travelers, including dog shows. Through the front lobby, dark wood floors and concrete walls beckon you to sit and join the gig workers on laptops inside the co-working space. This stylish hotel is so dog friendly, they’ll even give you a list of shops and restaurants nearby where your dog is welcome. You’ll also find locally sourced products at the “Bulldog Edition café.”
Happy National Pet day and we hope all your furry friends get the pampering in high style that they deserve.
