Gay Friendly Hotels

Fairmont Banff Springs Castle Hotel Gay-Friendly in Alberta Canada – Exploring the Canadian Rocky Mountains around Banff and Lake Louise, there is one thing you seriously have to put on your gay travel bucket list: a visit and stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, also known as “Castle in the Rockies” at Banff National Park. More than 125 years ago William Cornelius Van Horne, the general manager of the Canadian Pacific Railway, wanted to bring the people to the Rockies: “Since we can’t export the scenery, we’ll have to import the tourists”. The first, wooden construction of Banff Springs

Our stay at the Calgary Airport Marriott Terminal Hotel Gay-friendly – After our wonderful road trip through Alberta and the Canadian Rocky Mountains all the way up to Jasper for Jasper Pride Festival, we returned to Calgary the head full of impressions and pictures of stunning nature. Before we started our trip back from Canada to Europe early in the morning, we stayed in the brand new Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel with a unique view over the International Airport YYC, Downtown Calgary, and the snowy tops of the Canadian Rockies. Luxurious interior, access to the M Club Lounge, and

The historic Fairmont Palliser Hotel Downtown Calgary Canada – With over 100 hundred years of luxurious hospitality tradition in one building right in the center of Calgary in Alberta, the Fairmont Palliser Hotel is an institution to experience the glamor of recent decades of Canadian Railway Hotel businesses. Opened in 1914, the remarkable building was designed by Architect Lawrence Gotch of E. and W.S. Maxwell of Montreal. Fans of Edwardian architecture will love the Fairmont building in Chicago School Look, especially from the outside since it was the highest building in Calgary town, at least until 1958. But also from

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Alberta Canada gay-friendly – Over hundred years of accommodation history located right at Lake Beauvert at Jasper National Park seems to be perfect as our "home" during Jasper Pride Festival 2017. The Jasper Park Lodge, an over 2,3 square kilometer huge mountain resort in the middle of Jasper National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site), is an all-year-round 4-star lodge with restaurants, pool, and SPA area all with incredible mountain views. The gay-friendly stuff, a remarkable rustical but comfortable atmosphere and the proximity to nature and wildlife of Jasper National Park in Canada made the Fairmont Jasper

Our experience at Carlton Beach Hotel Tel Aviv Israel gay-friendly - While attending the Gay Pride Parade 2016 last summer together with thousands of handsome gay men from all over the world, we were accommodated at the Carlton Beach Hotel right on the beach side Tel Aviv Marina in Israel. With its well maintained and equipped hotel rooms, it’s amazing breakfast place, and a generous rooftop pool with bar, the Carlton has everything we needed for a relaxed holiday in the Gay Metropole at the Mediterranean Sea.

The Willow Los Angeles Hollywood California gay-friendly – It was not easy to find the right accommodation around Los Angeles and Hollywood, but we managed to find this beautiful apartment in a quiet area in between both cities in California, USA. The view out of apartment number 5 was simply beautiful for the morning coffee and the nights have been calm on a comfortable mattress under starlight. Just a 15 minutes ride with the car to the well-known gay area of West Hollywood made the choice of the dinner location with drinks really easy. Within just 20 minutes (depending on

Thousand Trails Yosemite Lakes Resort gay-friendly. The Yosemite National Park in California was one of our top highlights we planned for our four weeks road trip around the South West of the United States of America. Looking for a unique glamping accommodation located very close or even in the middle of nature, we found the Yosemite Lakes Resort just a five minutes drive away from the West entrance of Yosemite National Park. The resort includes Yurts, cottages, tents and space for trailers nestled in a valley along a river. We stayed in the Yurt village located on the top of

Our stay at Kumagaiji Buddhist Temple Lodging Koyasan Japan. One of our highlights and on top of our bucket list for our Japan Travels was without any doubt our two-nights stay at a Buddhist monastery in the mountains of Mount Koya in the South of Osaka. Already the way up on the mountain plateau with a cable car was stunning. But the 120 temples, the graveyards and temple lodgings around Koyasan were just breathtaking. Don’t miss the chance during a trip into the Wakayama Mountains to visit Japanese Buddhist center Koyasan (Kōya-san) and be brave enough to sleep on the

Nights to remember at Nakagin Capsule Tower Tokyo Japan. Our first trip to Japan started impressive, different and somehow adventurous. We didn’t choose a hotel for our first nights in Tokyo. Instead, we used a unique and rare Airbnb offer to stay in an architectural icon, the world famous Nakagin Capsule Tower. Designed by the architect Kisho Kurokawa, the capsule tower as a compilation of living 140 living cubes is a remarkable building of the Japanese Metabolism finished in 1972. The building is located right in the center of one of the financial districts of the Japanese capital Tokyo, Shimbashi.

The review of our gay-friendly stay at Loft Westeinde Apartment City Center The Hague during our Dutch City Tour around the Netherlands. We can recommend the private Loft apartment at street Westeinde (not only) for a weekend stay in the third biggest city of the Netherlands. Well maintained, equipped and prepared for our visit with enough space for a (gay) couple or even two with cooking facilities, a small library and a roof top terrace the Loft Westeinde above a private art gallery let us feel immediately home. Arriving at Den Haag Centraal (The Hague Central Station), is was just
