Lesbiangaybisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.

U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in the U.S. state of Florida may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Same-sex sexual activity became legal in the state after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Lawrence v. Texas on June 26, 2003, and same-sex marriage has been legal in the state since January 6, 2015.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Massachusetts have the same rights and responsibilities as cisgender heterosexuals. The U.S. state of Massachusetts is one of the most LGBTfriendly states in the country.
Boston has a long history of being a  gay friendly town and in downtown we can find a few gay friendly bars as well as Boston EagleThe Alley BarCathedral Station are the most famous gay bars in Boston, MA.

Stayed at StayPineapple for a couples weekend with my partner. It was ABSOLUTELY the most comfortable room I’ve experienced in a hotel. The bed takes up most of the room, but that was fine for us since we didn’t stay in there much. But the sheets were clean and soft, and the dual comforters were lovely. When I say clean, I mean clean. I spilled water on the floor and wiped it up with a white towel- that towel came up clean! The amenity fee is a bit annoying, as I think they should just include that in the room price.

The hotel is in a lovely neighborhood and is class=”_3f5ztoLj”>gay friendly. We felt entirely welcome as a gay couple, and the attached bar is actually a well-known Boston gay bar (mainly boys). Great experience all around.

The rooms are tiny, but efficient and comfortable. The bathrooms are very small as well, but the shower area was large. The rooms offer a lot of amenities and included snacks, lotions, shampoo, bottled water and a Keurig with coffee/tea. There is a $15/day charge for these that automatically come with your bill. There are robes, a good hair dryer, nice bedding, and a comfortable mattress. The TV was large and there were plenty of outlets for charging and plug-ins. The bar downstairs was fun – it’s definitely very gay-friendly and had an upbeat vibe.

The neighborhood that this hotel is in is primarily residential with beautiful brownstones. However, it is very close to restaurants and shops. The Back Bay T stop was about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The staff were friendly enough. The location is pretty central to all of Boston. Easy walk to the Commons to start your Freedom Trail trek.

Restaurant/bar downstairs is very good, the bar area is a Gay bar so if you aren’t accepting or open minded then this is probably not a good hotel for you. We thought that the Sunday Drag event that they had going on was great.

Really enjoyed the stay at 907. The staff was so accommodating and the whole stay was relaxing. The rooms have a great modern vibe and are a fun escape from the usual cookie cutter hotel vibe.

The staff was very responsive through the text service and it took no time at all to grab an extra towel during my stay. I really appreciated the text feature since it didn’t require an app or anything like that.

The room was wonderful. The charm of this hotel and the modern flair they added is super cool. The room was well appointed, extremely clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed the bay window bench in my room. It was a great spot to have my morning coffee and look out at the happenings of central square.

I can’t wait to go back and enjoy this great spot again soon.

907 Main was absolutely the best choice for us as to where to stay while moving our son into MIT during a pandemic and more. Every staff person in the hotel and restaurant was warm and attending, a lovely combination of hip and professional and followed good covid-precautions.
Our double room was spacious with comfortable beds and extremely soft towels (I wish I had at home). They left a welcome gift bag for our son with a few MIT goodies and were empathetic with us when we came back from leaving him on campus. The price was extremely fair. The location was a 10 minute walk to the main buildings of MIT and a 5 minute walk to the subway. They easily adjusted for us when we got stuck in Boston without any flights to Texas for two days. Please, please try this hotel so that it will be successful and there for all of us for years to come.
The location was great. The rooms were a bit small but very well accessorized. The staff was absolutely excellent. The hotel is an outstanding value. We really enjoyed the food from the restaurant, too. Definitely stay here.
 Very comfortable room, located near a few shops and restaurant, although we had dinner at The Dial, the hotel restaurant. Dinner was great. The Chef put together an eclectic menu from different cultures/countries. It was unique and delicious. Will definitely return.

Discover the city’s downtown destination, Hyatt Regency Boston, where luxury and convenience collide. Steps from Boston’s most desirable area-attractions such as the Boston Common, Faneuil Hall, and Boston’s famous shopping destination, Newbury Street, the hotel sits at the edge of the city’s excitement. Tour the Freedom Trail, visit the Museum of Fine Arts, or catch a game at historic Fenway Park, all just minutes from Hyatt Regency Boston.

Experience Boston’s exhilarating 24-hour neighborhood and burgeoning restaurant scene that includes our casually chic restaurant, Avenue One. Relax in our heated, indoor saline pool and stay energized in the StayFit Gym. Convenient to the Theater District, the Financial District and attached to Macy’s for convenient shopping, our downtown Hyatt hotel is also a 10 to 15 minute walk to the South End, Back Bay, the Charles River Esplanade, and is connected to the “T,” Boston’s mass transit system.

It’s right downtown and on the edge of Chinatown and the theater district, both very interesting. It’s about a 5 minute walk from Boston Common. It’s right next door to the Downtown Crossing T station, but also a short walk from Park Street station (in Boston Common), Chinatown, and South Street– from which you can catch the SL3 bus to the airport, commuter rail, various other busses, and Amtrak. Basically wherever you want to go in Boston you can get there from here.

Food? No matter your taste or budget there is something for you from McDonald’s at Boston Common to cloth tablecloth restaurants and everything in between. Just walk around the area. When I stayed here last time for four days I think I figured out at least five different ways to get to and from the hotel. I figured out a different way to and from that McDonald’s across from Boston Common tonight and saw more things I didn’t see last time.

The views out the rooms are amazing. No matter which direction you face there are interesting buildings to gaze at.

Very nice hotel a block from Theater District. Check in was easy; rooms were spotless and nicely updated. Large wall mounted flat screen TV in our double queen room. Nice bathroom with newer fixtures, lighted mirror, magnifying mirror and sliding barn doors. Husband said the gym overlooked indoor pool and was nicely equipped. Within walking distance of Boston Common, Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall and historic sites. A bit of a walk to the North End (20-25 mins), but worth it for a nice Italian dinner.

This hotel is located right down the street from the theatre district so it’s perfect if you’re going in to the city to see a show. Rooms are clean and what you would expect from a Hyatt. We were worried about being situated next to an ice machine but it was very quiet. I didn’t eat at the restaurant, but it has good reviews.

This location was perfect for walking to restaurants and sites, including the Faneuil Hall and Seaport areas. My room was exceptionally large and comfortable, with a great work space. Even though restaurant service was limited, the lobby bar had excellent warm and cold breakfast items, snacks and alcoholic beverages in the evening. All the staff was friendly and accommodating.

Loved staying in this hotel. I had a very spacious, immaculately clean room and it’s close to Boston Common, the theatre district, as well as the city and Faneuil Hall/Quincy market. Central Boston is very walkable, but beware of sudden cold snaps.

Very nice hotel, modern building and room interiors. I had a nice view of the city and did not hear too much noise from the 20th floor. Hotel has a lower lobby at street level, the main lobby was on an upper floor.

Chinatown was a couple blocks away, within walking distance from Seaport area, Faneuil Hall, etc. Stores like Macy’s, CVS, etc. are close by.

Rooms: Check-in was smooth. There is a separate World of Hyatt line and as a globalist, I was upgraded to a corner room. Opposite the bed is a nice seating area with 1 couch and 2 chairs; however, there is no desk in the room.

Gym: The gym is oddly placed down 2 very long hallways. It has a good mix of cardio and a nicely equipped weight section flanking each side of the gym. The pool is pretty big and is built for lap swimming. There is also a sauna in each locker room.

Food: There is a convenient coffee bar in the lobby which transforms into a bar in the evening. They have your usual Starbucks brewed coffee along with specialty drinks and some pastries for a quick grab n’ go in the morning.

Moroccan Luxury Suites Boston puts the best of Boston at your fingertips, making your stay both relaxing and enjoyable

We generally prefer the relative anonymity of hotels so were slightly concerned about staying in a B&B from that perspective, but needn’t have worried. Whilst the owner and staff were very friendly and helpful, there was no ‘obligation’ to be more social than we wanted to be. The suite we had covered the whole of the top floor of the building.

We had a large bedroom, sitting area and small (but very well equipped for the size) kitchen area. There were 3 different ways to make coffee, between French press, filter coffee and capsule machine! there isn’t anywhere to prepare and serve breakfast in the building so they stock your kitchenette with a variety of breakfast items and ask you if you want anything in particular. The variety was great and it was lovely to be able to get up, and mooch about in our pyjamas, preparing and eating a lazy breakfast – and all included in the rate.

It doesn’t seem as if Moroccan themed décor should really work in this historic colonial building (built 1799) but due to the impeccable taste of the owner, it does – really well.

So overall, for about 2/3 of the price of the hotels we were looking at staying in, we got much better equipped accommodation, breakfast included, free wifi and a great location with wonderful hosts. I can’t say more than that I would stay there again in a heartbeat if we were staying in Boston.

Location-wise it’s a minute off the main street in Charlestown, and a few minutes from various bars, restaurants and a massive Whole Foods Market. It’s also very close to the Freedom Trail and ultimately Bunker Hill and the USS Constitution. So great to be a tourist but still be in a quiet residential location.

Comfortable bed and lounge furniture, fridge, coffee machine and spacious bathroom. All topped off with beautiful wooden beams, floors and furniture.

Location Wise out of the bustle of Boston, but only a few minutes walk to the T, or regular buses, so easy to get around and about. Charlestown has Bunker Hill, the Warren Tavern (good beer and food) and the dockyard where USS Constitution is berthed, and there are plenty of shops and a coffee house almost on the doorstep.

The artwork and antiques in our room created a luxurious atmosphere that felt cozy. The bed was comfortable; the was bathroom large, clean and well equipped. The in-room breakfast was nice. And WiFi worked flawlessly.

The location worked well for us. We enjoyed staying nearly in the shadow of the Bunker Hill Monument. Walked to the historic Warren Tavern for dinner one night. And we were able to make the short trek to the T station at the nearby community college when we didn’t call an Uber. We found almost everything we wanted to see and do within a short distance.

Stroll through the scenic Boston Common park, explore the unique and luxury shops of Newbury Street, ideally located only steps from the Fifteen Beacon Hotel’s front doors. Easily experience all areas of the city with the hotel’s free in-town chauffeured sedan service.

The 63-room luxury boutique hotel, recognized for peerless personal service, sophisticated interiors and luxurious custom amenities, distinguishes itself with its sense of heritage, peacefulness of home and utmost discretion.

Nice boutique hotel well located, next to Boston Common and walking distance from Charles Street.

The rooms are cozy with a fireplace but I don’t recommend the rooms located in the inner courtyard as they are noisy.

The hotel itself is interesting because it used to be a transit authority center and then a School Commission building for many years. Being a teacher I thought the latter was funny.

The rooms were filled with amenities, the gas fireplace warmed us up. The shower was super luxurious. The bed was ultra comfortable.

We enjoyed an appetizer of oysters next door, a car service that dropped us at dinner and a walk to the park and Charles street for some shopping.

We checked out a bar where JFK frequented right around the corner.

In the morning we literally crossed the street and had a tasty breakfast at a French Café.

We didn’t get to try Moo but opted for Lemoncello’s Italian restaurant which was delicious.

The location really allows a person to experience some of the best of Boston right outside the hotel.

Fantastic, luxury hotel in superior Beacon Hill location. Large, luxurious rooms with flat screen TVs and gas fireplaces. Easy walk to shops and restaurants on Charles Street, Newbury Street and in Faneuil Hall. Need to go farther or would rather not walk? They provide an in-house car service at no additional charge. We used the car service to get to our show at the Charles Playhouse.

The location of the hotel is a 12 minute walk through Boston Common to the beginning of Newbury Street and is located in the stunning and gorgeous area of Beacon Hill. This is another plus point.We ate breakfast at a fantastic diner each morning in The Paramount, 44 Charles Street Beacon Hill (out of the hotel turn right, keep walking for ten minutes until you come to Charles Street. The most efficient diner I have ever been to and the food is excellent! Well worth a visit and the shops near to it are really great too.

Things I liked:
– smaller size hotel
– comfortable bed (a bit on the soft side)
– gluten free bread available
– helpful concierge
– courtesy car (SUV) with friendly drivers
– easy jog to the Charles River/Newbury Street
– deep bathtub with bath salts available on request
– duck confit hash at Moo steakhouseThings I didn’t like:
– not enough complimentary drinking water
– room was quite dark and had no view
– bathtub doubles as shower but the glass door leaks water out onto the floor
– lighting in the bathroom not flattering
– service at Moo steakhouse
