We stayed at this hotel to be with the rest of our family attending a wedding nearby in Arlington, VA. We will not come back to this hotel. To begin, the handicapped parking spots were not very large, but they were near a ramp with railings. However, the ramp led to extremely heavy, non-automatic glass doors with a center bar in the middle so that the actual openings were so narrow, even a sporty wheelchair would not make it through! This is the only entrance from the parking lot to the elevators! Therefore, people in wheelchairs or people too weak to open the doors have to go up the dangerously steep and narrow parking entrance while cars drive in.
Also, this is the type of hotel where the handicapped rooms are the oldest, least desirable, corner rooms with odd floor plans. Other than that, I don't see how it was any different than a regular room. I can't remember exactly, there may have been a seat in the shower. Entering the room was difficult at best, and entry into the bathroom was nothing short of acrobatics. Then the room was extremely humid, the window would not open and the air conditioning was broken and never fixed, even though we called the technician twice. The hotel staff was generally condesending. Although we did have a nice quiet lunch with good service in the restaurant, and a good time one evening in the bar. I will not fault the dining staff, they were friendly.
