Dear hotels, wheelchair users have families too

The odds of snagging an accessible hotel room that can accommodate more than two people are considerably higher in the United States than in other countries. However, those odds are diminished if you need a roll-in shower instead of an accessible tub, since bathrooms with roll-ins often take up more space. This means the bathroom encroaches on the bedroom, which leaves less room for beds. The author takes us through her experiences of trying to find accessible hotel rooms that accommodate more than two people and suggests some solutions.
