Spains AXEL Hotel Brings Their Gay Hotel to New York City



The Spanish hotelier Axel Hotels will bring its gay hotel chain to New York City in 2011.

In 2003, Axel Hotel Barcelona was the first hotel in the Axel Hotels chain and the first city designer hotel aimed at the gay community.  Axel Hotel Barcelona is a trend-setter and has become an international reference for gay accommodations.

Now with 3 gay hotels under their belt, the company has decided to turn their attention to the United States.  Renate Siebenhofer, development director of the hotel chain, confirmed the group’s plans to open its fourth five-star hotel in the U.S.

“We are pleased to inform you that we have been able to identify a site in New York we consider spot-on for our group: The AXEL HOTEL NEW YORK will be located in Hell’s Kitchen and is slated to open its doors to the public in spring 2011,” Siebenhofer said.

Designer chic rooms and outstanding personalized, genuine and professional service catering to  guests requirements and anticipating their needs, have earned them quite a reputation in Europe. In fact, Axel Hotel Barcelona has been chosen the “best gay hotel in the world” by the readers of prestigious travel magazine The Out Traveler (USA). Through the annual survey Reader’s Choice Awards, hundreds of readers voted for the Axel Hotel Barcelona to put it in the ranking’s top position.

The hotel chain’s ambitious plans include three additional U.S. hotels to be built in its most gay-friendly cities: Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami.

Amsterdam, London, Paris and Miami are considered high priority projects.
