The West Hollywood Marketing & Visitors Bureau has announced the relaunch of www.gogaywesthollywood.com, the premier source of information for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender travelers to West Hollywood. As one of the top gay destinations in the world, nowhere else will visitors find such gay-friendly excitement packed into just 1.9 square miles. And nowhere else will you find more information about gay travel to West Hollywood than www.gogaywesthollywood.com.

"West Hollywood has long been the epicenter of gay life in Southern California and offers unmatched energy and excitement for the gay and lesbian traveler," said Bill Hynes, Executive Vice President of the West Hollywood Marketing & Visitors Bureau. "This new website is designed to help visitors maximize their experience in West Hollywood with a wealth of information on hotels, nightlife, dining, shopping and culture."

The new gogaywesthollywood.com has been completely redesigned with new site navigation and a user-friendly interface. The website's design captures the "living forward" spirit of West Hollywood's LGBT community. During the development of the site, community members were invited to submit images that represent the city's welcoming and progressive culture. A new weekly calendar showcases the most exciting LGBT events from all over the Los Angeles region, and the Hot News section is the ultimate source of information on events, attractions and businesses that appeal to the gay and lesbian traveler.

WeHo offers some of the area's hippest hotels, including the Mondrian, Sunset Tower, Sunset Marquis Hotel & Villas, The London West Hollywood, The Standard, Grafton, Best Western Sunset Plaza and North America's first Andaz hotel, a new lifestyle concept from Hyatt. Additionally, the Palihouse Holloway, Chamberlain, Ramada Plaza West Hollywood, Petit Ermitage, Le Parc Suites and Le Montrose are all within easy walking distance to the heart of the gay community's epicenter. For travelers looking for something a little more risqu�, the San Vicente Inn is an exclusive property with private, clothing-optional, tropical surroundings.

Gay clubs and bars are the foremost in entertainment and Santa Monica Boulevard is where it's all happening. With hotspots ranging from dance clubs and chic lounges to neighborhood bars, everyone is sure to have a good time in West Hollywood. The Abbey, Here, East/West, Eleven, Gym Sports Bar, the Factory, and RAGE are just a few of the clubs that make the west side popular, while the Gold Coast, O-Bar, Fubar, and Hamburger Mary's beckon visitors east. Different nights of the week bring different promotions and crowds to each of the clubs, so visitors should be sure to check out www.gogaywesthollywood.com for information.
