An expansive bed with soft pillows, a flat-screen TV, a gym and chef-crafted meals � at New York's first luxury hotel for dogs, opening in a few weeks, nothing's too good for man's best friend.

The 9,700-square-foot hotel in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood aims to ensure “the dog is getting the same quality as a human being does,” explained one of its three co-owners, Shawn Hassanzadeh.

“As a New Yorker, when you go on vacation, and you stay in a fabulous hotel, with fabulous services, your dog is staying in a fabulous hotel with fabulous services,” he said.

Also available, for any vacationing canine looking to stay in shape: a gym, equipped with personal trainers and two treadmills.

Standard rooms will cost $79 (Rs 4,400) a day, while the luxury suites will go for $200 (Rs 11,141). Extras range from the $15 (Rs 836) walk, and an $80 (Rs 4,450) “full treatment” at the spa.
