As we didn’t have a lot of time to prepare for this trip, I called Hampton Inns and made almost all the reservations at one time. It was easier. The only problem was in my brother’s town. We had to stay at a Best Western. To our surprise, we were given a room for the disabled. The disability parking was right out front within feet of the room, the bathroom was huge to accommodate a wheelchair, the room was spacious and we loved the location – not up an elevator and down a long hallway.
It never occurred to me to ask for a hotel room for the disabled. In Oklahoma City, we were talking about it with the Hampton Inn desk clerk. She changed my profile and requested a disability room or a room on the first floor so we would not have to haul all of the luggage so far. It kicked in a few hotels later and really made a difference.
A new lesson learned this trip – one can request hotel rooms for the disabled.
