Jet-setting canines have a new stop on the luxury hotel circuit. Hoteliers in Paris have opened a new dogs-only luxury hotel. To cater to their four-legged guests, Devi and Stan Burun, have included a heated pool, masseuse, televisions equipped with DVDs, and a doggie workout room with treadmills and a decor adorned with framed doggie prints.
The owners eschew any connection with those garish Americans who give their dogs manicures and dye their fur pink. No, these pathfinders of canine culture explain that, “our priority is to meet the dogs’ needs.” Indeed they do.
Bookings are in advance and will run you 25-36 euros ($36-$48) a day. Oh and don’t just ring them up and expect a room. All “guests” are screened before a reservation is accepted. How very French!
