It’s that time of year again – Hotel Pennsylvania is gearing up for the Westminster Dog Show! The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, in its 138th year, is the second longest continuous sporting event in the U.S. next to the Kentucky Derby. Held at Madison Square Garden – directly across the street from Hotel Pennsylvania - the event typically sells out and is one of the most watched televised sporting events in the world.
As the official host hotel for the competing canines we are gearing up to continue our over the top treatment of the VIPs (very important pooches). We have already planned a variety of exclusive onsite daily events and amenities for guests to coincide with the Dog Show, including:
- Direct shuttle bus service for Dog Show exhibitors and spectators from the Hotel to Piers 92/94 each day (courtesy of Westminster).
- Exclusive welcome package.
- A live Westminster Kennel Club broadcast satellite feed from the Hotel’s Lobby on the morning of February 7th.
- Hosting the largest in-door doggie spa in all of New York, the 1st In-Line, Inc. sponsored Green Room Salon, Spa and Canine Gym offers a variety of amenities for Show participants: bathing/beauty parlor/salon, dog grooming/comfort station, exercise/fitness area, animal acupuncture, walking area, and even his and hers relieving area.
- Hosting the 2014 New York Pet Fashion Show Presents “The Crown Jewels of Fashion and Rescue” taking place on Friday, February 7th; starting at 7 pm EST.
- Hosting a live three-hour radio broadcast of the popular pet show Talkin’ Pets with Jon Patch on February 8th from 5 pm to 8 pm EST.
- Our exclusive on-site Doggie Concierge will be working hard to attend to all canine requirements related to the Westminster Dog Show.
- The Paw Mall, located at the Dog S’paw’, will feature all the latest accessories and gifts for both owners and pets to enjoy, from jewelry to pet clothing.
