Hotels turn away guests for all kinds of reasons, but here’s one you don’t hear every day: You’re not gay enough.
That’s what Laura Bradmeyer says a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., hotel did to her parents when they tried to check in recently. A receptionist told her father the hotel wouldn’t honor his reservation.
“He was told that no women were allowed,” she remembers. “My parents were not charged anything, but they were turned away.”
Eventually, her parents found a room in a different hotel. But Bradmeyer wonders: is the resort allowed to tell guests to leave because of their gender or sexual orientation?
