World Rainbow Hotels, working with ChicagoPride.com (part of the GoPride Network of LGBT websites), has launched a new travel portal that will let visitors book LGBT-friendly hotels via the ChicagoPride.com website.
The WRH collection has more than 1,200 gay and lesbian-welcoming hotels worldwide, which are bookable online by both consumers and the travel trade. Every hotel in the collection is reviewed to gauge the hotel team's knowledge of the local gay scene, the business' current involvement with the LGBT community, compliance with non-discrimination policies and same-sex benefits for hotel staff.
Even better, World Rainbow Hotels will offer special rates or perks to visitors traveling to Chicago this summer for the annual Pride festival in June. Perks may include an exclusive discount or a welcome drink upon arrival.
Bonus: Upon check-in, guests booking with WRH will get a local gay scene travel guide.
