Hotels for people with lymphedema and other disabilities

Postby gary1955 » Mon Oct 23, 2006 3:38 am

Because I have third stage bi-lateral LE of the lower limbs,does anyone know what hotels have the best handicapped rooms? When I travel, I like to have a bathroom that has proper bars in the showers and also a hand held shower head. And lots of room to navigate. I find many times hotel websites say they have handicap assessible rooms but when you finally see what their idea of handicap assessible is you can't help but think they really don't understand what a handicap person needs. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, Gary

Hiya Gary

We have had the problem over here for long time but finally it is being addressed in many places.

It is only an idea but i would imagine wheelchair access
are bigger. as turning space etc and room in the bathroom

See if that is of help to check wheelchair instead of just disabled

Just a thought.

I always use the disabled loos now not because i need
so much the space as the time to get those supports back up round my ears lol

Ladies loos over here are like a cattle market never enough and
a queue a mile long you feel real guilty takin time to pull your supports back especially when you her a little girl saying "mommmmmmmmm
i can't" wait and dancing up and down

Silly the things that get to us mines little girls dancing in loo queues


Good luck

Hi Gary,

We recently came back from a trip and stayed at the Hampton Inns. I had called in advance and asked for a room close to the front as I had trouble walking. I have LE in both my legs. When we got to the hotels each nite, I had just what I had asked for. Room up front and close and disabled room with large bathroom and all the bars in the shower and a hand-held shower also. It was very nice.
Hope this helps.

Thank you for the info Charpunk.... I will check them out. Silkie, you are probably correct. Usually a wheelchair accessible room is much larger and better equipped.
