LGBTQ travelers: these are the hotels you MUST visit when you travel!
With today’s post, we will be showcasing an amazing top 10 accommodations that welcome and cater specifically to the community! This list won’t differentiate between hotels, resorts and guesthouses; you can always reach out to one of our very own travel experts and they will be happy to help.
Casa Cupula is one of the top picks on this list and it is only natural that we put it first! On their website they pride themselves as being “Puerto Vallarta’s premiere boutique gay hotel”. In fact, they’ve won 16 years in a row as Mexico’s top LGBTQ destination! They’ve also received multiple certifications from famous travel site TripAdvisor.
Another great hotel, The Late Birds is marketed with a “gay urban resort concept, tailored for the gay male community”. They do however welcome all guests and not just gay males! The Late Birds is also a partner of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) and shows the crest on their website.
Alexander’s Guesthouse is one of the more prominent guesthouses in Key West, Florida. This guesthouse is self-labelled as an LGBTQ guesthouse which also welcomes all friends of the community as noted on their landing page. This resort has received Expert’s Choice and Best of Key West certificates from TripExpert.
La Dolce Vita prides itself as Palm Springs’ most inviting swimsuit-optional resort catering to gay men. Just like the other resorts on this list it welcomes all guests as long as you’re a friend of the community. On their website, it also notes that they have the only professional Men’s Spa in Palm Springs!
The Axel Hotel line is a large chain of hotels catering and friendly to the gay community, with their location in Berlin being no different. This location in particular prides itself as being Berlin’s main LGBTQ hub in Schoneberg, also known as Berlin’s gay district. Of course, this hotel accepts all guests, so much so that they note “we are heterofriendly” in their website logo.
This listing is a little bit different – the Sonesta Hotels are in multiple locations in the US and is quite a big brand. On the website itself however the Sonesta does have a page dedicated to their gay friendly hotels which have gone above and beyond for the community. The link above leads to a bunch of their hotels which have earned affiliations with LGBTQ associations such as World Rainbow Hotels, TAG approved hotels and The Pride Center. The most popular locations are in New Orleans, Houston, Boston and Baltimore to name a few.
The Brass Key Guesthouse is an “all welcome” boutique hotel that has been proudly gay owned and operated for over 55 years. A tag line on their website notes that “We don’t care what you are as long as you don’t either”. This guesthouse is more known as an up-scale accommodation. Their website is full of tremendously great reviews!
All Worlds Resort is a clothing optional gay men’s resort situated close to all attractions in Palm Springs. The resort itself boasts 4 pools and 3 hot tubs, as well as a fun Sunday pool party and BBQ every week. They also sell daytime passes and evening passes to the public for pool access, meaning tons of people for you to meet and hang out during your stay!
Belvedere Guest House totes itself as the ultimate gay vacation getaway. Situated on the bay front of Cherry Grove, the Belvedere Guest House is in the style of an amazing Venetian Palace with terraces, towers, domes, statues and fountains! Almost every corner you turn you can see something new, exciting and beautiful.
The TWO Hotel in Barcelona is also under the same umbrella as the Axel Hotel in Berlin earlier on in the list. The TWO Hotel boasts 87 rooms fully soundproofed with the highest level of service and equipment with sleek, elegant modern designs to provide maximum comfort. Just like the Axel Hotel, all visitors are welcome.
