Our gay-friendly Manhattan neighborhood locations have distinctive characteristics, just like you. Since the very beginning, our LGBT guests and associates have been a driving force behind The GEM Hotel. Race, creed or orientation - we treat all guests like family. Whether you travel for leisure or business, we work to ensure your stay is memorable and rewarding, your boutique accommodations comfortable. We will tend to your needs and interests by day, and help point you in the appropriate direction for fun at night.


Members of the gay and lesbian community are an integral part of our business. We enforce a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to discrimination of any kind. True to our commitment, we provide diversity and sensitivity training for all of our associates. And, empower customers and associates alike to be guardians of its diversity business practices.


The GEM Hotel is active in both the LGBT community and communities within our neighborhoods. We have been an annual sponsor of AIDS Walk New York and NewFest, the New York LGBT Film Festival. We are also a member of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. On a local humanitarian level we've supported community centers, as well as organized holiday clothes and food drives. We are continually lending a helping hand to various partner organizations within our neighborhood and community.
