Gay and lesbian travelers account for a sizeable portion of the New York tourism market. In 2008, they made up 10 percent of the 47 million visitors to the city, and in 2009 New York City officials promoted Manhattan as a gay tourist destination in a $1.9 million Rainbow Pilgrimage Campaign. So it's no surprise that virtually every hotel in New York is hospitable to members of the LGBT community. Some, however, go further than others, either by investing in targeted advertising or by offering special packages and discounts. All of the hotels on this list are TAG approved or members of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association.
