In New York City yesterday, a new kind of hotel opened its doors.

“Out NYC,” a complex on West 42nd Street, is not “a gay hotel, but rather a straight-friendly hotel catering to the gay lifestyle,” according to owner Ian Reisner. It’s a place where gay families can feel comfortable, though straight families are allowed as well. 

Rooms will go for $200-$300 a night, including lots of luxuries like a nightclub, bar and restaurant, and Reisner says he wants the place to have an urban feel while still providing a sense of relaxation for guests.

  19. trekmagically answered: I really like that they are calling it “straight-friendly”. We can’t be hatin’ the haters cause then we’re haters, too.
  20. songofsarcasm answered: I feel like it insinuates that we are different from straight families; Like, what, will they have glittter toiletries? Lady Gaga pop art?
