The Barkley luxury pet hotel sits across the street from the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles, an apt location. While guests at the Four Seasons can order breakfast in bed, have a massage or take a swim in the pool, those staying at the Barkley can do the same, plus much much more. The Barkley provides the highest level of luxury for pampered pets.
Guest suites provide individual climate and lighting control, piped soothing music and frequently freshened air.
Cats have smaller suites but are entertained by television screens featuring birds in flight and tropical fish swimming in a tank.
For those who take their pet’s diet as seriously as they take their own, Barkley staff will order in steak from the Four Season’s room service menu. There’s Ahi Tuna Sushi for the cats that don’t like their dinner from a tin.
On the SPA treatment menu, fur dyeing is now offered…
…With natural dyes, dogs can have their ears, paws, or tail coloured pink, blue or green…
…or be stencilled with leopard spots, zebra stripes, or even an all-American flag design. The design stays put for up to four weeks, and causes no harm or discomfort to the dog.
Pet owners can choose from a massage, facial or ‘pawdicure’ with optional nail jewels and glitter.
A trained pet masseur is on hand to help stressed guests chill out with a back rub.
The hotel has recently added swimming lessons as an alternative daily exercise routine for their residents. Personal swim instructors take the guests for a splash with pool toys, and life jackets for the less confident swimmers.
After the fun, they can relax in a poolside cabana with a cool drink and a gourmet dog treat.
Nightly rates start at $44.50, rising to $100 for the Hollywoof Star Suite at peak times.
