    Awesome! Thanks! It doesn't sound to hard. Why wouldn't they do something like California?

    I will at a later time. We are building our case against them for reimbursement.

    Did you report them?

    Even if they were to move all the furniture there still wouldn't have been enough room to get me into the Hoyer and into the roll-away bed. In a ADA room there is supposed to be 30in on all sides of the bed. There wasn't.
    Actually, not on all sides. Sides and foot, not the head of the bed. So are you going to file a DOJ complaint against this hotel? Best to do it now before the current administration passes HR620 (passed by House, not yet by the Senate) that will gut the ADA and require that businesses have another 6 months to comply with regulations before action will be taken on complaints of violations of a law which went into effect in 1991!!! Hotels and other businesses get away with this because people don't file complaints for violations.

    I did not. At that time my focus was on finalizing my travel plans.

    Sorry I wasn't thinking about the head of the bed. I believe we will.

    I hear you there. I usually spend hours online trying to get everything we need set up for a trip.

    What I don't understand is for under $100 you can have an adjustable king size frame.

    Probably true for new construction and substantial remodel. Might not apply to all of those HC rooms though.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.
