I’m looking for an accessible hotel room with a roll-in shower in New York City. Do you have any suggestions?
Wow, that’s a pretty broad question. New York City covers a lot of real estate, so first I suggest that you narrow your search a bit. Figure out which of the five boroughs — The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens or Staten Island — that you want to call home. They all have accessible hotels, but you need to really decide what area you want to stay in, and that will largely depend on what you want to do and your budget.
Once you’re decided on a location, check out the NYC Official Accessibility Guide at www.nycgo.com/assets/files/pdf/access.pdf. Not only does it have a comprehensive list of accessible hotels, but it also details their access features (including roll-in showers), and lists nearby public transportation options. Published by The Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities and NYC & Company, this handy resource also has access details about attractions, nightlife, public transportation, sports venues and tours. So check it out and get ready to have a fun and accessible adventure in the Big Apple.
