I travelled here back in March '12, with my two brothers. One of whom is disabled. We picked the States to holiday in as it is just so much more accesible than Europe. So, I went and picked a large hotel on the beach promenade that would mean easy access for us.
This is a typicalyl large transient american chain hotel. It is so large that you don't get any chance to make a connection with staff, but they did seem friendly enough.
The rooms were large, we had a connecting room. The "adapted" room wasnt very adapted. There were certainlyy grab rails in the bathroom, but the main bedroom was the same as mine. Useless for a wheelchair user. Furniture in the way etc... Some people in wheelchairs do not have upper body co-ordination, therefore need grabrails to aid getting in and out of bed etc.. I cannot for the life of me understand how hotels, on every level, fail to see this.
Anyway, the hotel itself was completely accessible, however the pool area is very small and got very busy, so trying to access the poolside bar was a nightmare sometimes as people had to get up and move!!!
Food wasn't great at all, and everything was absolutely overpriced, but then I guess you are staying on some of the most expensive real estate in the world!!! What do you expect?
I would not revisit.
