ADA Compliance GuidelinesThe Federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has recently changed the accessibility requirements for hotels and motels. The ADA requires that all hotels and motels provide guest rooms accessible to individuals with physical disabilities. The ADA has specific language and requirements for hearing impaired accessibility.
The new requirements also requires hotels and motels to disperse the Hearing Impaired accessible guest rooms among the various types of guest rooms offered based on type, number of beds and amenities. This means that hotels and motels are not allowed to make all mobility (wheelchair) accessible rooms Hearing Impaired accessible nor are they able to limit Hearing Impaired accessible rooms to one floor, queens, kings, smoking, and non-smoking. Hearing impaired accessible guest rooms must be DISPERSED among the various types of guest rooms offered.
