NYC hotel takes dog friendly to a new level

Image from
OUT is a hotel in Hell's Kitchen that takes dog friendly to a whole new level. While other hotels might accept four-footed friends in the rooms and even provide a bowl of water, OUT focuses on the doggie experience.

Naturally, the hotel rooms are comfortable for people, but that's not really the point. The suites have private fenced-in outdoor terraces complete with a dog house, a bed, and a plastic fire hydrant. Furry guests have access to their terrace around the clock through a pet door.

The rooms also have treat jars stuffed with organic snacks for dogs, and visiting pooches get complimentary doggie cupcakes.

The hotel has a dog-walking service. The first two walks are free, and after that dog owners are charged an hourly fee. They can also arrange a dog sitter for those who don't expect their furry friends to behave with just the room's built in dog-cam as supervision.

On the website, the hotel says, "Enjoy tug-of-war on your PRIVATE fully appointed terrace which features a dog house, pet fire hydrant and comfy seating for two and four-legged friends. Inside your pooch will be spoiled with their own doggie bed, dining set, organic treats and even pet spa products."

Do you travel with your dog? What amenities do you look for?
