Las Vegas, Sin City. One of the leading adult tourist destinations around the world.
The glitz and glamor of this city is mostly located on Las Vegas Boulevard, known as "The Strip," a beautiful and expensive hotel, resort, casino and live entertainment venue. Whether or not you get into the game, Las Vegas will offer something to everyone who likes it.
Traveling to Las Vegas (or anywhere, really) begins to cause problems with finding the right accommodations. A quick search of the most popular websites that promise the lowest rates on hotels will leave you with more than ever. You will find something below the "amenities" of the hotel:
– Coffee: check
– Morning wake-up call: Check
– Wheelchair Accessibility: Check
When you look at the hotel's website for question, you realize that there is no more information about hotel accommodation for wheelchairs.
How big is the room? How high are the beds? Are they a platform bed? Can you bring your lift to move? Do they have a side elevator? Is the bathroom equipped with a shower? Do they have shower benches? Can you fit your wheelchair under the sink? Are there automatic door control buttons? Are there any instructions in braille? etc and so on.
However, most property owners believe that the "check" symbol answers all of these questions, so you should have trouble sending an email or phone call to the hotel.
Yes, every disabled person has different needs and it would be impossible for hotels to answer 100% of all accessibility questions and answer them on their website. However, most do not even worry about providing basic information.
