Standard Hotels offered through misterb&b

Because we foster the largest community of gay travelers, we need to ensure all are welcome anywhere they go. Of course you may search for a private room or a full apartment from our gay and gay-friendly hosts. But sometimes, you would rather search for a hotel in a particular location or with certain amenities.

To help in your search we have selected a few standard hotels that we believe are a good fit for LGBTQ+ travelers.

Why did we select these hotels?
Because of their location, services, amenities, rates, and overall good reputation, we believe these hotels can appeal to LGBTQ+ travelers. At this point though, we haven’t been able to vet their welcoming attitude and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community.
We also help ensure hotels with a history of homophobic behavior, or whose owners are homophobic, are not listed on misterb&b.

When booking with misterb&b, you help support organizations fighting for LGBTQ+ rights around the world.

Supporting the community is not just about survival, it's also about thriving, empowering and making a difference.
