We organised to stay here specifically because the hotel was advertised as wheelchair accessible - false advertising. Only concessions made for accessibility was in the bathroom. Grab railings had been installed and the bath tub had been removed to make a large shower space. When asked for the use of a shower chair the attending staffer at first didn't realise why a person in a wheelchair would need one. The bedroom has no concessions for a wheelchair other than the door is just big enough for some wheelchairs to fit through. The entry hallway is only large enough for the chair to move one way, you cannot turn around. The room was too cramped to get any further than the bathroom before removing a lot of the furniture, and afterwards still resulted in knuckles getting scraped when rolling between the bed and tv counter. The hotel's gimmick for feeding guests' creativity by encouraging them to move around the furniture in their rooms means that all the furniture (except the bed) has wheels on it. Meaning that there is nothing stable to lean on when climbing into the bed - which was about 20 cm higher than the seat of my wheelchair.
