I have occasionally been provided an accessible room in a hotel and certainly appreciate what it has to offer with wider doors, flat entries into showers, grab bars ( or what I would rather say: balance bars ) and quite frankly... just more open floor space. It's too bad all rooms don't have such features. And it's too bad that hotel property owners have not marketed their ADA-compliant rooms to such a targeted audience giving the hotel something special to offer their guests who require such features.
Prior to this ruling, hotels were required to have accessible rooms, but they weren’t required to block them for people that need them. The new regulations close that loophole – and that’s something that should have been done many years ago. Now, it is not likely that I will get assigned to bunk in those very special places.
