PRIDE Month is dedicated to celebrating and commemorating lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride—read on for a selection of packages, offers and fun activities in hotels and destinations from coast to coast.
Summer in Provincetown
Provincetown is known as the country’s premier LGBTQ+ destination, so OF COURSE, there’s plenty going on for Pride—and beyond. Provincetown Pride in 2023 kicks off the summer season June 2-4 with the sixth annual Provincetown Pride Festival, the Pride Rally and the Sashay to Tea on that Saturday afternoon. Then there’s the Pride Cruise from Boston, the Full Spectrum Pride Kickoff Party at Red Room and the 2nd Annual Queer Comedy Showcase at Town Hall. The Feet Over Front Street 5K Run / Walk will be on Sunday, June 4.
The entire month is busy: June 1-4 is also Womxn of Color Weekend for LGBTQ+ women of color, trans-, nonbinary and genderfluid people of color and their friends; FROLIC (June 15-19) is for queer people of color; the Provincetown Film Festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary (June 14-18); Cabaret Fest this year is “Sondheim By the Sea” (June 5-11); and on June 19 the town celebrates Juneteenth, bringing together Black/African Americans, indigenous persons, people of color and other Provincetown community members and leaders. Check their website for even more happenings in July and August.

Hyatt Regency San Francisco
With one of the best locations in town—some might argue the actual best—Market Street’s Regency San Francisco offers exceptional balcony views of the iconic SF PRIDE Parade and newly-redone rooms and suites thanks to its $50 million-dollar reno. It’s waterfront and within walking distance of some of the city’s hottest attractions, though if clients are not feeling the walk, there’s a cable car stop right outside the front door.
The hotel’s PRIDE Package is available for booking from June 25, 2023, for stays between May 24 – June 25, 2023. Your clients will enjoy an upgraded balcony room/suite, two signature PRIDE cocktails on check-in and an invite to the SF PRIDE Parade viewing event in the hotel’s corner suite (if their stay coincides with the event)—probably one of the hottest tickets that day.

NoMo—so-named for being “at the intersection of Nostalgic and Modern”—is at 9 Crosby in one of New York’s trendiest districts and pays homage to this eclectic neighborhood with the vintage and contemporary art collection that makes up its building. Perfect for the art connoisseurs in your own curated collection of clients, the hotel’s Fantasy Pride Package offers them a stay in suites decorated with Pride décor plus a special swag bag upon check-in, two sets of satin NoMo SoHo pajamas, a $25 dining credit to NoMo Kitchen, and four Bacardi welcome drinks. Ask to be tagged in their Insta, because the rainbow-lit “Tunnel of Love” at the hotel’s Crosby Street entrance will undoubtedly make more than one appearance on their accounts.

Intercontinental New York Barclay
Midtown East is home to MoMa, the Chrysler Building, the Grand Central Terminal—and the Intercontinental New York Barclay. This classic property has prepped its very own Barclay Pride Package for NYC travelers, including a welcome Pride amenity, a full route of the NYC Pride Parade and two complimentary Ilegal Mezcal Celebrating YOU cocktails. A portion of those cocktails will be donated to wayOUT, a non-profit organization that works to empower LGBTQ+ youth to feel safe being who they really are.

The largest hotel in Texas and and the the second-largest Sheraton in the world at 1,840 guestrooms, Sheraton Dallas is celebrating Pride all month long with their Pride and Joy package (shoutout to Stevie Ray). The package includes a bottle of champagne and buffet breakfast for two at Open Palette and is good for stays from June 1-30, 2023—use code 4LG when booking. If they want to toast to Pride, let them know a Pride-themed cocktail will be on tap at the hotel’s swanky lounge bar, The Parlor.
Dallas is hopping with Pride Month events, including the Dallas Pride Music Festival (June 3) and the Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade (June 4) at Fair Park. Hot tip: Your clients can leave their cars in the hotel parking garage and take the DART train to Fair Park from the station across the street.
