My husband and I had a great, 4-night stay at The Out. We booked it through Hotwire or Expedia without knowing the theme--it's a gay resort that's straight-friendly. I've never heard of a hotel with that designation and was glad that it was straight-friendly since the room was non-refundable. My only fear was that we might feel less than welcome since we aren't exactly the clients the hotel is trying to attract. We were very comfortable, had a great time, and loved the modern, contemporary look of the hotel. The bed was very comfortable and the lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel all smelled great.
The location is great for tourists: near Times Square but away from the noise and crowds, near Restaurant Row (for adventurous diners), close to Port Authority (for those who are comfortable with the subways.
The things I liked the least were: The nightclub is definitely noisy. We asked for a quiet room and got one (3rd floor, opposite end of the hotel--with a terrible view of an interior walkway--but the view didn't matter too much). Even with our quiet room, though, once the music started we could hear and feel the bass. That was just a minor annoyance for us but would probably really bother other people. The only other thing I'd comment on was the bathroom lighting. It just wasn't the best light for putting on makeup.
Overall, it was a great place for a great price and I'd definitely stay there again.
