intro:Down the Las Vegas strip, a brand-new luxury hotel is making a name for itself with its celebrity suites and spa. But the actual guests checking in aren't human.
Bobby Prunes and Zaneta Tomczyk are the owners of Luxe Pet Hotel, an 18,000-square-foot pooch palace that is minutes from the Las Vegas strip.
“We have a cocker spaniel, and we have a German Shepard, who we adopted actually. And we just love them, like we don’t have kids so they are our kids,” Prunes told “Nightline.” “Before we used to travel a lot, so we would take them to the pet hotel, but we never found nothing that would be so luxurious … so that’s why we thought of opening this place.”
While owners enjoy the sights and sounds of Las Vegas, their pets scan take in the amenities that rival those of other luxury properties. A stay in the hotel’s celebrity suite runs $195 a night.
From the swimming pool and cabanas to the massage area, check out some of the lavish services and plush facilities for Luxe Pet Hotel’s four-legged guests.
