As June is LGBT Pride Month, many hotels are offering promotions to attract gay travelers. Here are two offers that were shared with Metro Weekly:

Key West, Florida

Hyatt Key West Resort and Spa is offering a warm welcome for everyone to come and be part of Key West's “One Human Family” in honor of the annual Pride Festival taking place June 8 to 12 , 2011. During the entire month of June, guests can enjoy the hotel’s exclusive Pride Package, which includes a full breakfast at SHOR Restaurant, 20 percent of all Jala Spa services and a late check out of 1 p.m. when guests book their stay with code KWPRI.
The Hyatt Key West Resort and Spa, also known as the “Sanctuary off Duval”, is located within walking distance of Key West's LGBT nightlife and all Pride festivities, yet far enough to enjoy the quiet and calming waters of the Keys. Guests can adventure through Key West and explore all the magic that the island has to offer and then return to a gorgeous sunset at the Blue Mojito Bar.
Visitors to the island during Pride can kick off the week by showing off their pride at the Island House Kick Off Party or by attending the 4th annual AIDS Help Film Festival on June 8. Later, guests can finish things off with The Pride Parade Down Duval on June 12. There is something for everyone to enjoy in the united city of Key West.
