Accessible Hotels in Alberta
Voice of Albertans with Disabilities has completed the Creating Accessible Hotels in Alberta project which includes sections on Current Practice, Accessibility Tools and Recommendations for Action.

Along with the results of this study, the report also provides tools to assist with assessing and improving accessibility in hotels including:
- Templates on Best Practices for Accessible Hotel Rooms and Bathrooms
- A Guest Checklist to Assess Accessible Hotel Accommodations
- A Hotel Accessibility Self-Assessment Guide for hotels to examine key accessibility elements.

Templates of Accessible Hotel Rooms and Bathrooms provides examples of hotel and bathroom layouts that meet best practice ideas as well as meet the requirements of the Alberta Barrier-Free Design Guide and the Alberta Building Codes. This information can be used by hotels to conduct a self-assessment on what they can do to improve the guest experience of person with disabilities and assist builders during renovations and new builds in the hotel industry. Your feedback on these templates are welcome. Stay-tuned for the remaining two tools that we created through this project including: We would like to know what you think about the results and recommendations made in the report.
