Pink Choice has today announced its 2012 Pink Choice Awards, naming 23 gay and lesbian hotels worldwide as the year’s winners.
Throughout 2011, thousands of accommodation reviews were submitted to Pink Choice by its 10,000 members. As a result, this year sees the largest ever number of award winners, based on guests’ submitted reviews and ratings. Many previous winners have again made the list, and are joined for the first time by the Benchmark Inn in Provincetown, recently under new ownership, Frog Meadow B&B and Massage Oasis for Men in Newfane, Vermont, the Inn at Stone Mills in Little Falls, New York and the Worthington Guesthouse in Fort Lauderdale, whose sister property, the Alcazar Resort, made last year’s award list and which is again a recipient.
In addition to the award winners, Pink Choice now recommends nearly 200 properties in 20 countries worldwide. As in previous years the site grew steadily in 2011, and so, more than ever, Pink Choice truly reflects the opinions of global gay and lesbian travelers. With the site including more than 2,500 properties in 800 destinations spanning 66 countries, gay and lesbian travelers can today enjoy a wealth of accommodation choices.
2011 also demonstrated that while many of the well known LGBT destinations continue to attract large crowds, increasing numbers of gay and lesbian travelers are setting their sites further afield. This is in part due to a greater global acceptance of the gay and lesbian travelers, and the increasing trend of mainstream hotels to compete for their business. We hope that in 2012 our members will not only tell us about their good experiences, but will also let us know when any hotel falls short of its marketing promise. That way we can continue to help our members make the right accommodation choices.
Pink Choice congratulates the 2012 award winners, and all the other recommended properties.
