Pampered pooches are set to have the opportunity to sleep like a president, or at least like a first family’s dog, at a high-end pet hotel coming to Adams Morgan next year.
Boutique pet care business Life of Riley is planning to open a dog daycare and hotel with a “presidential suite” at 2222 18th St. NW in March, said Paul Abbott, who owns the D.C.-area company with his wife, Laura. The space most recently was home to Sawah Diner.
The Abbotts haven’t finalized plans for the suite. But the room and all of the hotel’s other suites will be “very fancy,” Paul Abbot told Borderstan today. At its only location in Rockville, Md., Life of Riley has suites with heated floors, Italian marble and crystal chandeliers, ranging from $65 to $95 per night.
“We will go all out on the fit out of all our suites,” he said.
In addition to boarding dogs, Life of Riley will provide grooming and a chauffeur service, which brings canines to and from their homes.
Abbott said he and his wife are “very eager” to expand to the District.
“We will be meticulously planning the most efficient design, layout and materials to use in the Adams Morgan property to best serve the community,” he said. “We will ensure our Adams Morgan location is homely, safe, clean, and staffed with professional and personable dog lovers.”
