Gay Friendly TAG Approved Hotels in New Orleans
Gay Friendly TAG Approved Hotels in New Orleans

As with everything else, New Orleans’ hotel accommodations tap into the city’s distinctive spirit and cater to diverse tastes. The grand, elegant opulence of many French Quarter hotels are as impressive now as they were when they first opened far back in the city’s past. Just as historical but more quaint and cozy, architecturally important mansions and homes all over the city have been converted into bed-and-breakfasts. However, hotels like the W and the Renaissance Arts prove New Orleans isn’t stuck in the past but revels in its chic, artsy side as well.

The hospitality industry across the country sees gay and lesbian travelers as a growing market. The following hotels are TAG-approved, meaning these businesses aren’t just reaching out to an LGBT clientele through advertising and promotions, but they also have instituted gay-friendly policies in their hiring, training, and community support practices.
