Lesbian, gay, bisexual 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.

For someone like me who lives in Asia, expectations are there. So it wasn’t easy for me to find a suitable accommodation in New Haven and had my doubts. However, you can stop looking further and enjoy this hotel. Not only was I impressed with the lobby, the staffs were friendly and ever ready to assist. The room was of a very good size equipped with a kitchenette. The food at the restaurant, Hamilton Park was of great taste and quality at a reasonable price. What more can I ask for? A truly memorable stay.
The first thing I noticed about this new hotel as I walked through the automatic double doors to the lobby was the incredible fruity and flowery scent. The pleasantness segued into the lobby where the decor was inviting and comfortable with a hint of New England intellectual elegance. There were many sofas and overstuffed chairs arranged into groups, one surrounded a fireplace and another annexed a study/library. To the left was a lively bistro, Hamilton Park, owned by Michelin-starred Chefs Tyler Anderson and Matt Lambert.
They also own High George, located at the rooftop of the hotel where an expansive view of New Haven can be appreciated as well as the menu. The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Our room with a double bed, was spotless and larger than an average sized hotel room, with a wonderful view of Yale University and Chapel Street. The location of the hotel is a couple of blocks away from Yale’s Old Campus, British Art Gallery and many eateries, including Bar restaurant (best mashed potatoes and bacon pizza), Louis’ Lunch (claims to have invented the hamburger), MilkCraft (long lines for ice cream even in 30 degrees F temp) and many others.
The location is also away from New Haven Green where safety, especially at night, is an issue. The hotel is on a quiet cross street away from the hustle and bustle.
I’ve stayed at several hotels in New Haven and I would highly recommend the Blake Hotel. The room rates are reasonable too. A great find!
