Visiting New York City? Want to wake up in a city that never sleeps? A concrete jungle where dreams are made? Why not base your gaycation in the delectably fabulous OUT Hotel NYC.
Now first things first, The OUT Hotel NYC is an LGBT friendly hotel, but this doesn’t mean you are going to be mincing through rainbow glitter doors held open by drag queens on stilts whilst Liza Minelli sings the entire Wizard of Oz soundtrack and Neil Patrick Harris checks you in. It is simply an urban resort which prides itself on creating a space and environment which is open and accepting to all, they even let straight people in!
The hotel is located in the heart of the oh so young and fresh gaybourhood of Hell’s Kitchen, where the thriving gay community is currently developing itself. Anchored on top of the mega gay XL nightclub, The OUT Hotel NYC is only ten minutes walk to Times Square, the theater district, and the nearest underground station making it an incredibly convenient place from which to explore the wonderful city of New York.
The hotel provides accommodation options to suit any budget, from the basic but still uber chic dorm style room (all beds have privacy curtains, great for those on a budget who want to socialize), all the way up to fabulous suites. While everything in the hotel is clean, stylish, modern, and of a high standard, it is the amenities which really make this the place to be.
Check out the modern fitness center, a great place to work out – or just watch those who do, then head to the two hot tubs underneath the beautiful glass atrium which were named one of the best places to hot tub in New York by Thrillist. Follow up with a trip to the steam room and sauna before booking a treatment at the on site spa. Hungry? Head to the on site kitchen, aptly named KTCHN to enjoy an all American menu and finish with a stroll through, possibly the greatest part of the hotel, the green spaces; Check out the incredible Bamboo Garden, or relax and unwind with a drink on the Great Lawn, both of which combined to win OUT Hotel NYC a spot on Fodor’s list of the World’s 10 Most Beautiful Hotel Gardens.
So whether you are in NYC on business, pleasure or ‘pleasure’, be sure to book your accommodation at OUT Hotel NYC, you will not regret it.
