The Suite Life—For Dogs

By Dawn Raffel

I had just about gotten used to the term “doggie day care” as a euphemism for “kennel” when I read in the New York Post about a full-service hotel for canines that’s set to open in fashionable Chelsea.

No crates and kibble here: At the D Pet Hotel, your pooch can enjoy a full-sized bed, flat-screen TV, “gourmet meals” prepared by a private chef, and a private fitness trainer at the spa. Seriously? I’m planning to cancel my vacation next year and check in—as my dog’s service animal.
