The Benjamin Hotel, New York City

For those of you who have subscribed to my newsletter, you know that I have had an ongoing feature to highlight accommodation options that are dog-friendly.   Here’s my latest find:

The Benjamin Hotel in New York City caters to dogs of all sizes, whereas many dog-friendly hotels set size limits and only cater to the smaller breeds.  So all of you large dog people – this hotel is for you!

The Dream Dog TM package includes a bathrobe for your dog, spa treatments, gourmet food, and even a visit from a pet psychic if you choose.

When booking in to stay with your dog, you get to choose the type of bed they will sleep on.  For small dogs, there is a sofa bed with a removable cushion that doubles as a crate or travel mat.  For medium-sized dogs, there is an orthopedic bed “designed to provide the ultimate in comfort and support – the ideal blend for a perfect night’s sleep.”

And for dogs of any size (small to large),  there is the Luxury Bed which is an “ultra-plump, overstuffed round bed that completely surrounds Fido in down-like fiberfill. Deep and cushiony, with soft rhino suede and luxury gold braid, this bed will make your best friend feel safe and secure.”

The hotel also offers a dog walking service, clean up bags, a list of dog-friendly places to visit, and gourmet cakes and treats for special occasions.

It is great to see a hotel welcoming dogs of all sizes.
