Accessible room and amenities what does this mean?
Some accessibility features can be reserved and some not as they are either property-level features (such as path of travel) or they are property-stocked items such as equipment for the hearing impaired.
- Accessibility equipment for the deaf. This includes TTY for phone, visual or flashing fire alarm, and vibrating alarm clock. Request these directly from the property.
- Accessible path of travel. This means that the property has a path that is either flat or ramped, at least 36 inches wide, between the parking lot (if any) and the front desk and between the front desk and some or all of the guest accommodations. This feature cannot be reserved.
- Braille and raised signage. This means that the property has Braille or raised signage and vibrating alarm clocks available upon special request. Braille itself cannot be reserved as it is a property-wide feature when provided by the property.
