Just blocks from the fabulous Las Vegas strip, you will find the Blue Moon Resort—the city’s only hotel that caters exclusively to gay men. With 45 professionally designed hotel rooms and suites with flat panel televisions and wireless internet access, the resort also features a private pool area, 10 man Jacuzzi grotto with a 10-foot waterfall, sundeck, 200 square foot steam room and locker room. And, Vegas’s gay nightlife, which continues to expand year after year as new clubs open and older establishments are renovated, is only 10-minutes by car.
While some newcomers to the Blue Moon remain wary of staying at a gay property when there are so many hotels in Las Vegas, the repeat visit volume is over 50%. During its six years of operation, some guests have returned on more than 30 occasions. “I would put my amenities up against most any mainstream hotel and any gay destination in the country,” explained John, owner of Blue Moon. “We offer a very high-end experience.
Even visitors who choose to stay on the strip can enjoy the intimacy and luxury of Blue Moon Resort. Blue Moon offers day passes from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., which include towels and locker service, for only $25.
“The privacy and camaraderie of being around all of your gay brothers is just a very comfortable experience. It’s not hectic. You meet a lot of great people. I think it’s two completely different experiences if you’re going to stay with us or you’re going to stay on the strip. Once people stay here, they decide they’ve had a great time.”
Blue Moon Resort is located at 2651 Westwood Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89109. For additional information or to make reservations, visit www.bluemoonlv.com or call 702-784-4500. Blue Moon has generously donated a 4 day, 3 night stay to Baltimore Pride be auctioned off at Twilight on the Terrace on Friday, June 19.
