‘OUT IN DC’ PACKAGE EVEN INCLUDES A COMPLIMENTARY COPY OF NAVIGAYTOUR MAGAZINE!
That special day has finally arrived. You’ve been thinking about it for as long as you can remember. As a result, just any old closet won’t do. Nope, this must be an affair to remember! That’s where the Marriott comes in. Long known for its comfortable rooms and amenities, Marriott offers a virtual cornucopia of amenities for its guests – including value packages for gays and lesbians. And – as good fortune would have it – numerous hotels within the Marriott chain offer “OUT” packages. How divine!
At the Renaissance Washington Marriott in Washington, D.C., the gay package includes chocolate-covered strawberries, sparkling wine – and a copy of NaviGaytour Magazine, among a list of benefits long enough to make Barbra Steisand blush. You and that special Mr. live in the Pacific Northwest? No problem! Here’s the offering at Seattle’s downtown Marriott Courtyard:
Want more information before you thrust ahead? The Marriott website even has a section called “Gay Weddings & Events,” which is devoted to helping gays and lesbians plan their most special occasions. How sweet is that?
If you’re like me, nothing says, “I’m in!” like reading a couple of great reviews before taking the plunge. From the website:
“This year’s Lavender Law was the biggest in history with over 1500 lawyers and students in attendance – and we were thrilled to be back at the Hollywood Renaissance. I regularly send notes to my national sales rep praising Marriott as being the most LGBT-friendly brand with which I work.”
“DC Capital Pride was very fortunate to have the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel as the host and a Presenting Sponsor for our 2011 celebration. Our partnership with the Renaissance elevated the caliber of this year’s celebrations and the experiences of our attendees. Everyone felt respected and valued – and we hope to work with Marriott Hotels again.”
The Rat supports the rights of all – including those of gays and hotel chains. He also supports the rights of families with children to be fully informed before they make reservations for what they expect will be an enjoyable stay.
Do you suppose they segregate the rooms?
