Thread: Platform style beds strike again

  1. #21
    One solution I am considering for when I have to work in London is not taking a hoist and booking a hotel with ceiling track hoist http://www.chuc.org.uk/index.php/acc.../all-uk-hotels

    Wow, that's an interesting website. That would certainly alleviate the bed issue, but I doubt many hotels will take on the expense of a track lift.

    Possibly not but some of those hotels are part of a group, if the rooms with track hoists get used it may influence the group to do more. I'll probably still need to use my van rather than travel by train, not much fun driving in London.

    There are a few hotels in Vegas that have ceiling lifts. We stayed at the Bellagio a few years back.

    That is good. That is why you have to call and talk to the manager. But if I saw the pictures of the beds they show online I would have skipped it. http://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/vir...ccessible.html

    Reminder NEVER trust the pictures on a website they maybe staged and not the real deal.

    Many people get upset because the book a room of the pictures on a website and they check in and the room is nothing like what was on the website.

    Always have them send you pictures direct of the current room and furniture and bathroom set up.
