In honor of the 142nd Westminster Dog Show this February, we’ve listed the 6 most lovable dog-friendly places to stay that are a dog’s walk from the main event at Madison Square Garden. Make sure to tell your host that your Giant Schnauzer and/or Affenpinscher will be coming along too.
Boho Chic in Gramercy
Referred to by one guest as an “antique shop on steroids”, Clara’s pet-friendly apartment by Gramercy Park is a bohemian chic home that’s a breed of its own. As the Westminster Dog Show is in February, it’s handy that the property comes with its own fireplace and deep claw foot tub.
Lisa’s exquisitely furnished apartment in this stylish triangular flatiron building is going to have you barking for more. Here’s hoping the price tag of $495 a night per person won’t put off other visitors from coming back for longer. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms so try and split the bill among friends if you can.
Highline Designer Duplex
This affordable option near the park on the Highline can host up to seven people and could be the perfect place to bring your Welsh Terrier for the weekend of the Dog Show. Rand’s designer duplex has over 100 satisfied guests to its name, with only the odd complaint being street level noise, which makes sense given that it’s a first-floor apartment.
Kips Bay Penthouse
Olga offers a quieter option in Kips Bay on the 8th floor so your Pekingese can get some decent shuteye before her big day. Her one-bedroom penthouse studio gets most of its raves for its great location, which puts guests at an ideal starting point for city exploration. Your best friend might also appreciate that, come February, the apartment is centrally heated.
Modern Deal in Times Square
But you can’t get more central than Leonardo’s Times Square apartment! Your pooch isn’t going to mess up its pedigreed fluff as it only has a block to walk to Madison Square Garden. Being in Times Square comes with its own bustle, so many guests recommend bringing along earplugs when you visit the city that never sleeps.
Local Digs in Hell’s Kitchen
K. seems kinda relaxed. As long as you don’t steal his stuff or try to be shady he’s not gonna care. You can use anything in K.’s apartment in Hell’s Kitchen except his underwear drawer (says so on the page). While you’re there, make sure to appreciate his well-furnished rooms and proximity to all the great restaurants that Hell’s kitchen has to offer. This sunny converted pre-war apartment is also a dog’s walk away from the Hudson River and will have you living like a local in no time.
Don’t feel restricted to these 6 apartments when visiting the Westminster Dog Show in 2018. AllTheRooms makes it that much easier to find places to crash in New York near Madison Square Garden that would be happy to accommodate your pooch for the night (or more). Just make sure to select ‘Pets OK’ under the Amenities tab when filtering out your results and you’ll find an ever-growing list of pet-friendly hotels and homes.
