[I was going to post this under Hotels but thought this was the better forum for it]
Looking for a pre-cruise hotel in Miami and came across this property. Not it doesn't serve a religious mission but the targeted clientele is gay men. Don't think we'll book there. It would be odd to be a straight couple surrounded by same-sex couples. But I guess that is the point, for many it is less than comfortable being a gay couple in a heterosexual world.
Anyway, it got me thinking. I'm sure as a commercial enterprise they would gladly take my money as long as I didn't make any stupid complaints. But I always wonder about niche marketing. Where do you draw the line between affinity marketing and discrimination?
Which of these would you be comfortable with, assuming they allowed anyone to book a room, regardless of race, creed, color, etc.
Ebony - a hotel for African Americans
Ganges - catering Hindus
how about (I'm going to quit making up names) hotels catering to white people, straight couples, or Christians
They say we are moving to a minority-majority, or however that goes. Maybe some of these are not so far-fetched
