"I'm Ginger, The Muse Hotel's Director of Pet Relations. I am a discriminating dog. Some of the things that make me happy are Prada style, staring contests, and stealing food from the office. I understand that it's often the little details that make life enjoyable, and I look forward to catering to your particular tastes. Have your people email me with a little about yourself, and I'll do what I can to make your stay as fabulous as, well...me."

Memorable Pet Guest Story
One of our hotel guests recently lost her mother. She came to the Front Desk in tears. When she looked down and saw Ginger, her tears turned into a smile. She later said that for about five minutes, her mind was taken off of her mother's passing.

Top Tips for Pet Travelers
New York's only doggie playground is a short distance to the muse. "Canine Court," has open land and an obstacle course no dog will want to miss. You and your pet can also enjoy the dog runs in Central Park, a pet-friendly, New York haven. Hotel guests and their dogs are welcome to shop together at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany's, Brooks Brothers, Banana Republic, and the Gap.
