Joie de Vivre Hotels and Thompson Hotels are long-time supporters of the LGBT community. World Rainbow Hotels’ recognition of so many of our hotels reaffirms our commitment to deliver one-of-a-kind experiences to all
(PRWEB UK) 18 November 2014
By partnering with World Rainbow Hotels (WRH), Commune Hotels reminds the LGBT community that its Joie de Vivre and Thompson hotels welcome all guests. WRH is the world’s first and only global consortia for LGBT friendly hotels, spanning a global collection of over 1,200 gay and lesbian welcoming hotels, which are bookable on the GDS and online, by both consumers and the travel trade.
With a leading portfolio of transformative, boldly innovative boutique hotel brands, Commune Hotels adds to the WRH collection several properties located in the USA, Canada and United Kingdom, including popular, gay-friendly destinations such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Honolulu, London, Toronto and Miami, where Thompson Miami Beach, designed by A-list designer Martin Brudnizki, will open on November 21.
Nicolas Wijnants, Brand Director for World Rainbow Hotels, stated:
“Each hotel in the WRH collection is carefully reviewed according to a set of specific criteria, including its location, features and category as well as the hotel’s knowledge of the local gay scene and its current involvement with the LGBT community. Both Thompson Hotels and the Joie de Vivre Hotels brands represent perfectly the essence of what the gay traveller is looking for in a hotel. Luxury is important, but so is comfort, personality, local knowledge, a warm welcome and privacy.”
Peter Gamez, Vice President of Global Sales for Commune Hotels & Resorts, added:
“Joie de Vivre Hotels and Thompson Hotels are long-time supporters of the LGBT community. World Rainbow Hotels’ recognition of so many of our hotels reaffirms our commitment to deliver one-of-a-kind experiences to all guests. We look forward to continuing to welcome LGBT locals and travellers at our properties, including those soon-to-open in Miami Beach, New York City and Chicago.”
A local gay scene travel guide entitled “Out & About,” will also be available at each Commune hotel represented under the World Rainbow Hotels flag.
