If your dog has the scratch he can higher rooms for up to $100 a night at the Paradise 4 Paws hotel suites which has a pool, spa and flatscreen TV’s for the dogs to watch. Owners can keep an eye on their pet via webcam.
“A lot of our design making is in collaboration with veterinarians and consultants to help minimize the amount of stress placed on the animal,” Cliff Bollmann, an airport architect working on The ARK for Gensler architecture firm, told the Guardian.
Sounds like the animals get a better deal than I do.
