According to the Philadelphia Business Journal, the Rittenhouse hotel in Philly is now offering gourmet room service for dogs.  The menu items range from things like chicken jerky and peanut butter bones all the way up to filet mignon.

Rittenhouse has a reputation for being one of the city's most luxurious and upscale hotels.  In fact, it is ranked #1 on US News' Best Hotels in Philadelphia list.

The Philadelphia Business Journal says that pet-friendly hotels are becoming more & more popular with the almost 85 million pet owners in America.  That, and the fact that at least 9 new hotels will open in Philly over the next 2 years, makes Rittenhouse's new program seem like a no-brainer. Other menu items include beef and bean stew with vegetables, frozen peanut butter banana bars, Fiji mineral water, and whipped cream.

One of the new hotels opening this year in the city will be the Four Seasons Philadelphia at Comcast Center.  Most Four Seasons hotels welcome pets.  In addition, Kimpton Hotels, which are famous for their dog hospitality, already has 2 hotels in Philadelphia - Kimpton Hotel Palomar and Kimpton Hotel Monaco.
