To paraphrase the philosophy at the James, pets are family members and they should be treated as such. The James has teamed with Detroit-based luxury designer Shinola and award-winning photographer Sohpie Gamand to make this animal dream a reality. Filet Mignon? Cow hooves? Just two of the specially prepared menu items (for as little as $10) provided by room service, which is also on hand to provide organic treats for pets upon arrival. Not feeling the expensive stuff? The hotel’s David Burke's Primehouse restaurant has a stash of pet-friendly food that’s waiting to be eaten.
Hotels have grown wise to one simple fact over the years: Guests love their pets. They love them so much, in fact, that they’ll go out of their way to avoid venues that don't allow their furry friends. Sure enough, that’s given rise to a slew of luxurious perks and dedicated teams to ensure that everyone—even the pets—get treated like gold.
