Westminster Dog Show


The 138th Annual Westminster Dog Show takes place in February at Madison Square Garden, right across the street from us.

Recognized as the World’s Most Pup-ular Hotel for the Dog Show, New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania is pleased to be the host hotel for all canine hopefuls participating in this annual event. In fact, the hotel has earned the 2012 ‘Pet-Friendly Hotel of the Year’ award for its pet-friendly services.

As one of three Westminster Gold Partner Hotels, we feature shuttle buses from the Hotel to Piers 92/94 – all from our front door!

Hotel Exclusive Features

To mark this annual event, the hotel sets up a variety of onsite Dog Show events and amenities, including:

  • Westminster guests receive an exclusive welcome package with dog treats.
  • All the latest pet-friendly publications are available free at our Front Desk.
  • EXCLUSIVE special events (in 2013 we hosted the first ever ‘pup’tuals wedding ceremony at the hotel!).
  • The 1st In-Line, Inc. sponsored Green Room Salon, Spa and Canine Gym; the largest in-door doggie Spa in all of New York with a variety of pet pampering amenities for your VIP’s (Very Important Pooches).
  • Our Dog Spa also features the Paw Mall, where guests are able to pamper their prized pooch.
  • A live Westminster Kennel Club broadcast satellite feed from the Hotel’s Lobby with Westminster Dog Show participants.
  • Our exclusive Doggie Concierge is on-site working hard to attend to all canine requirements.

As a bonus, if your dog wins ‘Best in Show’ your entire room stay with us is free! Just another reason that we are the most ‘pup’ular hotel for pets!
