The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"The décor in this room is the same as the standard room but with accessible features. Light switches are lowered and the bathroom is modified.
The accessible room has a queen bed with room to transfer on one side.
"The bathroom has a wide sliding door to access the bright, spacious and generally well designed room. The toilet has room to transfer on one side.
The sink has space under it for a wheelchair user and there are lever taps throughout. Glasses and light switches are lowered.
The shower is spacious with a hand-held shower, shower bench and room to transfer from wheelchair to bench. I found the flush button on the wall beside the toilet but slightly in front.
The light switches are easy to turn on and off but are on the small side."
GENERAL HOTEL ACCESS
"The Radisson Blu building is a historic building therefore access has been installed in more recent times.
Valet staff guided us inside to the lift which avoided the stairs at the entrance to the hotel. Hotel staff operate the lift but it is an efficient process. Once past this point access to the rooms is via the main lobby lift system used by all guests.
There is a dedicated drop off area in front of the hotel but it is on the street (not a pull in driveway) so for a wheelchair user driving to the hotel I would recommend waiting if necessary to get a park on the side of the hotel for unloading."Other accessibility information:
