Weird Hotel Innovation

Hotels are great for romantic getaways. Apparently, though, this isn’t true just for people. HotelChatter points to this MSNBC story from August on a Sao Paulo motel which caters to love-seeking dogs.

    The air-conditioned pet love motel room, with a paw print decorative motif, has a special control panel to dim the lights, turn on romantic music or play films.

    “The owner has to know what kind of DVD will excite his or her dog,” Marinho said with a chuckle.

    The dog motel, which opened this month, costs $41 for two hours, making it more expensive than the least luxurious rooms at the Opium, which cost $45 for four hours.

    “We also have a wedding agency that matches up dogs and if the female dog doesn’t get pregnant, we offer artificial insemination services,” said Marinho
