Best-in-show hopefuls and award-winning trainers head to New York City this February for the 142nd annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Feb. 12–13, New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania, or Hotel Penn, welcomes top dogs and their trainers to its exclusive accommodations to enjoy services special for its VIPs — very important pooches.


Ever wonder what the pups are up to between shows? Picture more pampering and primping than most brides on their wedding day. With several packages designed to prepare participants for the competitions, Hotel Penn offers something for guests of the show, competitors and dog lovers alike.


Westminster competitors are greeted with a welcome package and exclusive access to Progressive Dog Club events. Hotel Penn’s exclusive Doggie Concierge caters to each VIP guest’s specific needs and requirements from hotel tours and familiarizing participants with their surroundings to even directing pup interviews.

The hotel caters to these top dogs with an exclusive Room To Groom S’paw’ — the largest indoor dog spa in the city — offers contending canines everything from a dog grooming area with bath tubs and an exercise and puppy fitness center to a private-ish indoor bathroom. Once the dogs are primped and ready to go, Hotel Penn offers a direct shuttle to the show.


Second only to the Kentucky Derby, Westminster is one of the oldest-running sporting events in the United States. The Dog Show is the most prestigious of all National Dog Shows and continued through World Wars, depressions, Mother Nature and extreme weather.


As the top hotel to trainers and competing breeds, New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania boasts some of the best accommodation prices and packages specifically for Westminster guests and hopefuls. Whether attending or showing in the event or looking to host pup-nuptials of your own, Hotel Penn has a package for you.


Guests receive special rates ranging $99–139 a night, or $159 for two adults, up to four dogs and includes special pup-area access.
