At Independent Collection Hotels we celebrate diversity. We know that love takes all forms and we celebrate each of them. We have worked hard to create a welcoming environment inside our hotels, all of which are TAG-affiliated and members of IGLTA.
As the IC, we pride ourselves in the wonderful neighborhoods in which our hotels are located. IC Hotels are in vibrant, culturally rich neighborhoods with delicious restaurants, a good dose of unique character, and a welcoming spirit. From the ever-chic Tribeca to Philadelphia’s Gayborhood, the tony Georgetown to the dual oceanfront of Miami Beach and South Beach, our neighborhoods are filled with fantastic offerings, and among them are numerous LGBT-owned businesses, residents, and attractions.
Our associates, many of which are members of the LGBT community, are given sensitivity training, and can offer LGBT-focused recommendations by request. We treat all guests equally, tailoring recommendations to a guest’s particular taste, and our staff is always ready to offer recommendations for the best places to go in our cities – we are neighborhood experts and love to give personalized itineraries!
We are delighted that many of the cities in which we are located have legalized same-sex marriage and in all those locations have created “I Do” packages to help couples celebrate. At The Boxer in Boston, guests can tie the knot in nearby Beacon Hill and enjoy celebratory assorted truffles upon their return. At Tribeca’s Duane Street Hotel, couples can enjoy customized petit fours from nearby Duane Park Patisserie decorated with their initials. Though same-sex marriage is not yet legal in Miami (fingers crossed!), at Blue Moon Hotel and Winter Haven we have created the Out-and-About package, offering a copy of EDGE Magazine (Miami’s trusted source of gay news and entertainment), chocolates and strawberries upon check-in, as well as breakfast for two in the morning.
Whether it’s your big day or just for play, you are sure to find a welcoming and enticing place to stay at one of our IC hotels during your next trip.
