5 amazing LGBTQ-friendly New York City hotels not to be missed this summer–or ever


Who’s new on the scene for Gay-friendly hotels in New York City? Well, hold up. No, we’re not talking properties here that have recently come out of the closet. Rather, these are the newest gay hotels in NYC that are proud to have had their grand openings (or a fab remodel) recently and ready to welcome guests of all persuasions.

Though there are hotels that prefer to self-identify as gay, the reality of LGBT hospitality in New York these days is a friendly one. Coming to town with your significant other? A staycation weekend in the city?

These are the stays that you’ve been looking for on the other side of the rainbow.

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ | The Renwick Hotel

Literati or gliterati, The Renwick Hotel is sure to please both sets thanks to fashionably-designed space honoring the property’s connection to past guests like John Steinbeck and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Airy loft-style spaces feature artistic muses and travel thoughts from famous authors. Don’t miss out on grabbing an order of Green Eggs & Porchetta for brunch at Bedford & Co. (with a morning Mimosa for good measure). Ho’yeah, and there’s also a Gertrude Stein Suite (complete with wall art based on her trademark ‘A rose is a rose’).

☆ ☆ ☆ | The Cambria Hotel & Suites Chelsea

Playing off the block’s Flower District identity, the Cambria Hotel & Suites Chelsea blooms with color at all hours of the day thanks to floral-themed art scattered around the hotel. On the practical side of your stay, coworking spaces give you ample room to bring your office with you and an outdoor space to wrap up the work day outdoors.

This Chelsea address keeps you close to all of the neighborhood buzz for which this part of Manhattan has been known for decades, while also walking distance to landmarks like the Empire State Building and the Flatiron Building.

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ | The Bernic 

Stay over in Midtown at The Bernic with all of the amenities necessary for a night of hotel fun: hooded bathrobes, rain showers with Beekman 1802 amenities, private balconies, Apple TV plugged into your 42-inch flat screen TV and a Nespresso for when you wake up.

This gay-friendly space is crowned by Allora serving Northern Italian-American fare while the rooftop sky lounge Alto affords guests a panoramic view of the City. Date night? Prego!

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ | Kimpton Eventi

Expect spacious rooms with a subdued swagger at the Kimpton Eventi. Recently renovated rooms at the hotel include luxe touches like marble showers and floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto Manhattan.

A nightly wine hour, free bike rentals and tech accessory loans are just some of the ways that the hotel rolls out the welcome mat to its guests. Meanwhile, three in-house restaurants (The Vine, L’Amico and Lupulo) draw both guests and hungry New Yorkers in.

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ | The Roxy

Things are buzzing at The Roxy. You could easily spend a night roaming the hotel passing from The Django (an underground jazz club) to The Roxy Cinema (with its listings of arthouse and classic flicks) to Paul’s Cocktail bar (with entry left to the doorman’s discretion!).

Back in your room, it’s all about working the retro chic with niceties like goose down duvets, pillow-top mattresses, a Smeg mini-bar and Five Wits bath products. We bet you’ll want to check in, but we’re not likely to put our money on an on-time check-out.

    May I simply just say what a relief to uncover a
    person that truly knows what they’re discussing over
    the internet. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make
    it important. More people need to check this out and understand this side of your story.

    It’s surprising you are not more popular since you definitely
    possess the gift.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and
    was wondering what all is needed to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
