Haute Hound: Inside a Swanky New Pet Hotel
Nothing is too good for most people's pups, and that's probably what the folks at the Pooch Hotel - which recently opened in Sunnyvale, CA - are counting on. In these trying economic times, it's pretty amazing that anyone would devote 30,000 square feet to a pet pampering facility, and these folks take paw luxury to a whole new level.
Think fur color touch-ups ($30), poochberry facials ($30), aromatherapy massages ($75 an hour) and paw-dicures ($20). No, really. Check out the pix below.
The hotel turns its nose up at bars or metal cages, and all rooms have glass doors. The fancier accommodations - "Presidential" and "Palace" suites - have flat panel TVs and Web cameras so owners can check in while theyre away.
Your pooch can ride to and from the hotel in a limousine.
The facility has an indoor saltwater lap pool, an underwater hydrotherapy treadmill, and a land treadmill.
The Pooch Hotel is located at 180 North Wolfe Road @ Central Expressway in Sunnyvale, CA.
