Hotel Gaylord has opened its first gay-friendly rooms in the US.
The hotel’s first gay room was opened on Wednesday in the Las Vegas suburb of Mesquite, a city of over 100,000 people that is home to more than 80% of Las Vegas’ gay population.
Gaylord CEO Jeff Bercovici said that the move will allow customers and guests alike to feel welcomed and at home.
“We’re not making the decision to allow anyone to go into any gay-oriented rooms,” Bercovics told the Associated Press.
Bercoski said that Gaylord’s decision was not an attempt to exclude anyone. “
There will be a welcoming welcome, and people who come will feel welcome.”
Bercoski said that Gaylord’s decision was not an attempt to exclude anyone.
“No one’s going to be singled out,” he said.
“Our focus is on helping the gay community in Las Vegas.”
A spokeswoman for the hotel declined to comment on Bercowitz’ claim that guests will not be singled for their sexual orientation.
“This is a decision we made for a number of reasons,” she said.
Berc’s company is one of the largest operators of hotel rooms in America.
Gaylords has also opened its hotel rooms to same-sex couples in New York and Los Angeles, and the company recently opened two more gay-orientated rooms in London.
