New York Opens Its First Gay Boutique Hotel [Pics]
The Out NYC is marketing itself as the world's first LGBT resort that's also "straight-friendly."
The Out NYC opened earlier this year, situated in Hell’s Kitchen in the heart of New York City. What makes this hotel stand out from the rest, is that it’s the first hotel in New York to caters specifically to the LGBT community. The boutique hotel hopes to attract the millions of gay tourist who visit New York annually. Its modern amenities include hot tubs, private courtyards, a wellness center, sunbathing desk, and its own nightclub.
The Out NYC also won’t discriminate anyone that wishes to stay as a guest as the hotel is also “straight-friendly.” Co-owner Ian Reisner commented that:
This project has been in the planning for five years, and after 18 months of construction, we are proud to announce the opening of the city’s, and maybe even the world’s, first gay focused, straight-friendly, urban resort.
The hotel has 97 standard rooms starting at $200 per night. It also offers hostel-like accommodations with eight budget luxury shared-rooms for $99 per person.
