The Brass Key Guesthouse

“Gay, lesbian, straight, or something else? We don’t care as long as you don’t either.” Those are the hotel’s own words, and it doesn’t get more accepting than that, does it? This “all welcome” boutique hotel takes pride in embracing diversity and open-mindedness.

The Guesthouse actually encompasses nine faithfully restored historic buildings, with an enclosed terraced courtyard. There is an infinity-edge pool and oversized in-ground spa on the grounds as well. All of it is enclosed for a secluded, quiet experience that shuts out the noise of the city, though it is still at your doorstep. In fact, pretty much everything can be walked to within minutes.

There is a rooftop deck where guests can lounge, as well as a 15-person hot tub with views of the open sky. Also, there is a wine and cheese reception every evening that provides guests a great opportunity to meet each other. As does the on-site Shipwreck Lounge, one of P Town’s most popular gay hangouts. It offers handcrafted cocktails and an excellent tapas menu. There is a courtyard out back that offers a secluded outdoor bar experience, with vintage décor, fire pit, lounge seating, and “thoughtful” lighting.

All in all, LGBTQ tourists will have a hard time finding a better choice for accommodation in Provincetown that promises a good time for all.

Crew’s Quarters Uptown

This cheap-chic hotel offers what it calls “Provincetown’s Most Unique Historic Gay Boarding House.” A gay landmark in Provincetown for over 60 years, Crew’s Quarters promises a lodging experience that is “comfortable, intimate and affordable.”

The lobby offers a lounge area and a common-use bar; it is the unofficial hub of the hotel. The reception area has a fireplace and a privacy chair. Rooms are equipped with ceiling fans, desk fans, dressers, and period lamps. As the hotel strives to retain its heritage, it is naturally vented and, as such, does not have air conditioning. Wi-Fi is available, however, and is complimentary.

A range of accommodation styles is offered. The Bunk Room, for instance, has one twin bed and sleeps 1, while the Merchant’s Room has one full bed and sleeps 2. The Master’s Cabin sleeps 2 with its single queen bed. Bathrooms are shared locker room-style bathrooms, with one bathroom on each of the three floors.

This gay-owned hotel enjoys a nice spot right in the center of town and offers guests a lot of nice perks that you don’t see everywhere: a nightly wine and cheese hour (which provides an opportunity to meet the other guests), as well as cooked breakfast. Above all, the best perk of this hotel is the friendly service you’ll receive as a guest here.

The property has a spa (the Namaste Spa, which is the best-rated spa in Provincetown) with a steam room, sauna, and hot tub. Eighteen guest rooms – each of them uniquely furnished – are inspired by the concept of a New England sea captain on a journey to the Far East, and the décor style strikes a gorgeous fusion of these two aesthetics. Colors are in creams, grays, and navy blue, completing the maritime vibe. All rooms have private en-suite bathrooms and are available in styles, including Classic, Deluxe, and King rooms. Deluxe rooms feature fireplaces.

Spa services include a Finnish dry sauna, which uses radiant heat from hot rocks placed in the steam room; Moroccan Hamam steam bath, a purifying and detoxifying experience; a hydro jet spa tub is also available, as massage. Couples’ treatments are also available.

Potential guests should keep in mind that the Carpe Diem Guesthouse is an adults-only hotel, and at present, it does not have pet-friendly accommodations. What it does have is an atmosphere where all are welcome.
