offers hotel accommodations at the best deals, but with a twist. 
This Internet based hotel accommodation site is a bit different from all the
others, as it is geared solely to the gay community. 

“The gay market is an integral part of the travel industry and should not be
overlooked”, states Mr. Lee Dagan, CEO & founder of  Mr. Dagan
continued to state, “We offer discounted hotel accommodations and feature
hotels that are either exclusively gay or “gay friendly”.
The goal of is to not only provide the best hotel prices to gay consumers
through purchasing hotel rooms in bulk volume, but to also provide
accommodations that the gay community can feel comfortable and be treated
fairly during their stay.  The American gay and lesbian community represents
an astronomical total of US $53 billion in the travel market, in other words
an estimated 10% of the total U.S. travel industry.

However, despite these statistics, this important niche market is sometimes
lost in the mix.  “We want our customers to feel comfortable upon their
arrival and we strive to gather as much “gay data” on the hotel as possible. 
For instance, if there is a favorite gay bar or restaurant down the street
from the hotel, it is our goal to know about it,” said Dagan.  “We want our
users to be fully informed on everything the hotel of their choice has to
offer the gay consumer.”  A great feature on the site is
the “Rainbow Concierge”.  This feature gives a full listing of all the local
restaurants, bars & clubs, saunas, and fitness centers that cater to gay
clientele.  Travelers can print out this section before departing and take it
along with them to serve as their own private tour guide while away.

On, gays and lesbians can locate hotels that are gay exclusive,
establishments that are owned and operated by fellow gays, or just “gay
friendly” and welcome the gay community with open arms.  This is not to say
that the “straight” community is not excluded in taking advantage of the deep, discounted prices.
