Our hotel does not have an on-site parking facility, instead we offer valet parking to all of our guests.

our building

Our fully accessible entrance is 10” south of our main entrance which has doors that automatically open. There is 57” of clearance space and the doors close slowly to give you extra time to pass through. The side door has direct access to our main lobby and front desk services. Our friendly front desk agents will waiting there ready to check you in.

Our lobby has three accessible public restrooms for your convenience.

We have a lift to help our guests get up the stairs. Please ask a member of our housekeeping staff to help you operate this machine. There are designated staff members trained to safely operate the stair lift.

Our guest elevators have a total space measurement of 72” by 48” with plenty of space inside once the doors are closed. The buttons are conveniently lower with the top button no higher than 48″ off the elevator floor.

our accessible guest rooms

The guest room doors have been modified to easily open using just one hand. They also close slowly behind you allowing for any extra time needed to enter the room. Our doors swing a full 90 degrees inwards and have 33” clearance space to pass through.

We have three types of rooms varying in accessibility. In two of our rooms the furniture has been set to the side allowing you to access to the middle of the room and the windows to open and close the shades. Two of these rooms also have 32” of clearance space between the bed and the nearest wall. All of our rooms contain a bedside table that includes a lamp that features an on and off switch on the base of the unit and a power outlet on the bedside table for our guests to charge their portable devices such as a mobile phone.

Other ADA amenities include:

  • low mirror
  • lower peep hole
  • lower closet rods (Only in Penthouse 5)
  • access to heating controls
  • a work desk that is 34” above the floor

our accessible in-suite restroom

We thought about maneuvering clearance when we designed our restrooms. There is more than 33” of clearance space to enter the restroom with plenty of maneuvering space beside the toilet and nearest obstacle.

The sink and vanity are no more than 34” off the floor and our faucets can be turned off/on without the need to use a tight grasp or twist. In Penthouse 5 we’ve placed our restroom amenities lower; so, the hair dryer, extra towels and towel racks are assessable for our wheelchair guests.

Our toilet sits no higher than 19” off the floor. We have mounted a grab bar on the wall beside the toilet and another grab bar mounted to the rear wall.

All of our restrooms come equipped with a roll-in shower with a built in bench. The lower docking station and the water nozzles are in reach and accessible when using the built in bench. Our tubs and showers are installed with a horizontal grab bar along the side wall.
