The largest gay resort in the U.S. Southwest has new owners. Los Angeles-based Alternatives Resorts has bought the 170-room Habana Inn in Oklahoma County. The property sold for $2.4 million.
Alternatives Resorts spokesman Arnold Greenspan says the hotel will be renamed as Hotel Habana and the first phase of renovations will start in the fall.
The resort has two nightclubs, a novelty store and a closed restaurant space.
The hotel recently celebrated its 50th birthday and is a centerpiece of a string of businesses catering to LGBTQ clientele along with a stretch of road that was part of historic Route 66 that connected travelers from Chicago to Los Angeles.
