This luxury dog hotel offers pooches swanky suites complete with twin beds, televisions, meat-based room service and even a doggy spa and chauffeur.

Canine guests at the Noble Dog Hotel in Greenville, South Carolina receive relaxation therapy with a member of staff massaging the animals with soothing lavender oil. 

The pet hotel also offers "story time" where a dog is read a bedtime story before being tucked in for the night.

The facility, which bills itself as a "five star hotel" for dogs, has 58 rooms that range from a standard suite at $55-a-night to the 'pawsidential' suite at $85 per night.  

The pawsidential suite is a 100 sq ft room with a twin bed, a television, complimentary room service of turkey burgers, eggs and pancakes, and story time. 

All the suites have a 24 hour webcam so that owners can log in and check up on their beloved hounds. 

The Noble Dog Hotel also offers clients a 'chau-fur' service where their pooches are picked up and driven to the luxurious residence.

The hotel is the brainchild of Jen Hannah, 44, a former professional golfer, who spotted a gap in the market when she travelled for work and didn't want to leave her dog at a kennel. 

"I had to leave my dog somewhere and the options didn't match what we were looking at," Jen said.

She added that the Noble Dog Hotel has been successful since opening in May 2017 because more and more owners view their pets as children. 

"We are seeing more and more people having dogs before they have kids," she said. 

"We are treating our dogs as family.  Some people don't even travel because they don't feel comfortable leaving their dogs with strangers." 

The hotel can look after 100 dogs daily, including doggy day care, with 58 rooms for pups staying overnight. 

"We have different things like relaxation therapy where we use a little bit of lavender oil and pet the dogs, massage them, make them feel loved and calmed," Jen said.

"We have room service and one-on-one times, story times, and we also have grooming." 

The pup's owners even choose what TV station they would like their dogs to watch during the stay. 

"It is usually something calming like Dog TV or home shows," Jen said.

The pandemic has hurt Jen's business as few people are traveling, but the doggy daycare has become more popular among owners who want some peace and quiet as they work from home. 

She added: "We are doing a lot more day care because people are working from home. 

"Once things get back to normal, people will travel and we will be here. 

"A lot of people adopted dogs during the pandemic and they are going to travel when it's over, so they will need a place to take care of their dogs." 

Jen is hoping to open another location in Tryon, North Carolina.
