A gay village also known as a gay neighborhood , gay enclave , gayvenue , gay ghetto , gaytto , gay district , gaytown or gayborhood is a geographical area with generally recognized boundaries, inhabited or frequented by many lesbian , gay , bisexual , and transgender LGBT people. Gay villages often contain a number of gay-oriented establishments, such as gay bars and pubs, nightclubs , bathhouses , restaurants , boutiques and bookstores. Such areas may represent a LGBT-friendly oasis in an otherwise hostile city, or may simply have a high concentration of gay residents and businesses. Much as other urbanized groups, some LGBT people have managed to utilize their spaces as a way to reflect their cultural value and serve the special needs of individuals in relation to society at large.

Room was in need of repair but acceptable. Was surprised that room is not serviced daily but for the price I was more than happy to make my own bed.
