Why Join World Rainbow Hotels?
World Rainbow Hotels brings together a global community of Gay & Lesbian welcoming hotels, providing them with unprecedented visibility and access to the affluent LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) market.
World Rainbow Hotels introduced the first ever LGBT-specific rate codes in the GDS (global distribution system). Travel professionals are now better equipped to offer their clients a certified LGBT-welcoming accommodation, carefully selected through a strict set of criteria.
World Rainbow Hotels' rate codes leverage the buying power of the international LGBT market, positioning participating hotels at the heart of this sector.
