Things have come a long way for the LGBTQ community, with no better showcase for growing inclusivity than Pride Month. Around the world, millions of people have come together under the rainbow banner to celebrate and acknowledge a group that’s still unjustifiably facing discrimination—both at home and in the greater society. 

While Pride Month may be drawing to a close, it’s important to remember the movement doesn’t stop, and we should all take every opportunity to support and recognize the message Pride promotes.

Whether you’re heading out to enjoy the last of the month’s festivities or looking for a safe and welcoming space to stay on your next trip, these are the best LGBTQ-friendly hotels.

The Beekman

Location: New York City, New York
Price: $280+
Vibe: Sophisticated old-time splendor
The rundown: If you’re swinging through the Big Apple before the end of June, there’s no cooler place to embrace Pride than The Beekman. Impossibly cool, basking in its well-preserved old-world elegance, a stay here is one to remember.

As for its celebrations, booking under the Beekman Pride Package gifts guests a complimentary bottle of bubbly, a Pride-themed welcome treat, a room upgrade, late checkout, two free drinks at the bar, and a Lower Manhattan Pride guide.

The Bent Inn

Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
Price: TBD
Vibe: Saucy, straight-friendly stay 
The rundown: The Bent Inn won’t open for another couple of months but is likely to be the ultimate gay destination in Vegas. It’s owned by the same minds behind Escape Resort in Palm Springs. The hotel boasts 33 cheekily designed rooms and markets itself as a judgment-free zone built for unforgettable experiences.

It’s also ideally located in the middle of Vegas, making it the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the city. Throw in an on-site gastro pub and poolside food truck, and you’ve got the makings of a winner. We’ll be excited to see this one open. 

Four Seasons San Francisco

Location: San Francisco, CA
Price: $400+
Vibe: Pride with a side of luxury
The rundown: Four Seasons is synonymous with luxury, and the brand has been vocal in its support of the LGBTQ community. Naturally, its San Francisco property got in on the Pride celebrations with an elegant nod to the community.

Besides a few Pride-themed cocktails, the hotel hosts a number of Pride celebration lunches, drag brunches, and rooftop bar socials for those in town for the celebrations. San Francisco’s Pride weekend is still to come, so jump on a last-minute booking.

Moxy DC Downtown

Location: Washington, DC
Price: $161+
Vibe: Simple, stylish, and celebratory year-round
The rundown: Moxy has garnered a reputation for a minimalist style, with a touch of flamboyance, so it’s no wonder the DC Downtown location has embraced Pride Month and beyond. Not content with a monthly celebration, guests to the property can enjoy the Loud and Proud @ Moxy package until April 30th, 2024.

After booking using the promotional code “8LG,”guests will receive some complimentary sparkling rose wine, some welcome drinks, sweet treats, and a copy of a local LGBTQ+ magazine. Just don’t forget the code!

The rundown: Axel is renowned for being the first LGBTQ+-centric hotel. Also identifying as hetero-friendly, it’s a welcoming brand designed to foster inclusivity for all.

They have plenty of locations, but the Madrid property is in perfect striking distance of Europe’s largest Pride event. Using it as a base for Pride weekend, starting July 1st this year will provide an unbeatable atmosphere. On top of its location ad vibe, the hotel itself is wonderfully designed with spacious rooms and all the amenities you’d need.
