Like Rome, Paris, and Amsterdam - New York stands tall on the growing list of pet-friendly cities. There are few places in the world where you and your pet can shop together in style like NYC. Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany & Co. Brooks Brothers, Banana Republic and Gap all allow (well behaved) dogs. Near Times Square the spacious 200-room boutique hotel The Muse, whose walls are adorned with specially commissioned artworks, is just as accommodating. After multi-million dollar nip and tuck that would make Joan Rivers blush you'd think it would be nervous about getting fur on its new designer couches and king-sized feather beds. Nah! This is the land of the brave and free. pets included. In fact, Kimpton Hotels' pet policy offers an outstanding level of service for is pet guests. For a start, each Kimpton hotel has its own pet relations director; the Muse's own is Sadie the Shitzu. Sadie likes to spend her time taking long walks, getting pampered at the Dog Spa and greeting guests at the front desk.
At the Muse pets also receive their own amenities basket filled with canine treats and bedding, food and water bowls (with bottled water) plus Sadie's own personal insider tips to the best dog-friendly parks, restaurants etc. Under the hotel's 'fine print for pooches' any type of pet is allowed with no weight or height restrictions. There is no additional charge or deposit required but they must be leashed in the public areas (unless your pet is a fish- and yes you can borrow one too for company in some Kimpton hotels).
