Booked this hotel again on Hotwire as was a year ago.\
Had a surprise when I arrived this time, my room was the handicap room.
At first I chuckled thinking I must be appearing old and frail to the staff but realized I've never stayed in a handicap/wheelchair room before. I don't know what the construction guidelines are, but it certainly seems to be very roomy allowing easy wheelchair movement within the room.
My room was on ground floor, closest room to the front desk.
The bed was a regular king, not a special bed.
The room was a bit larger and the bathroom was huge.
Certainly big enough for two wheelchairs to be in at the same time still allowing some maneuverability.
I've attached pix so that those who need/understand these rooms better can see what's there.
Sink has a cut out to allow wheelchair access. Lots of hand bars to assist moving in the bathroom. An alarm pull chain to alert hotel assistance is needed. With them being so close that would be very fast.
The shower has two sit down positions with a protruding portion in the middle either for grip or shampoos, etc. This shower is actually kind of awkward to stand in as an able bodied person as the protrusion leaves your footing on the edge and making you wonder if you slip. If you use either of the sitting positions, it works just fine. (took me a minute to figure that out first thing in the a.m. with no coffee).
Hot breakfast still top notch and the two well maintained waffle making machines are a treat.
Will definitely stay here again.
This airport area is great if you dont mind the slight industrial ambiance, as it's pretty quick to get to Deerfoot to scoot downtown or anywhere in Calgary. Lots of restuarants nearby including a new one I tried on this trip.
Great bang for your buck spent!
