Gay Travel: The Mondrian, Soho gets set to welcome you

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

Does New York need another hotel?  Are gay travelers struggling to find a bed for the night?  Well the answer is yes and no.  Whilst New York has plenty of places for gay travelers to lay their weary heads, in terms of hip hotels they are few and far between.  The Mondrian hotel hopes to add itself to the short list of hotels offering both style and service.

The hotel, situated in the trendy Soho district will offer 270 rooms, designed by Benjamin Noriega Ortiz, and opens its doors to welcome guests later this month.  This will be the third hotel fro the group in New York, but its first move into downtown.  This will be a stylish hotel, attracting hip gay and lesbian travelers to the state.  Inside the hotel you will find a seafood restaurant ‘Imperial No. 9′, which will be run by acclaimed chef Sam Talbot.  Take a drink in the signature cocktail bar or perhaps a drink in the outdoor bar is more your thing.

This will no doubt be a welcome addition to the hotel list in New York, and remember whilst the city doesn’t sleep, does not mean you don’t have to.
