Join CH&LA for a one-day seminar that will present a deep dive into the important issues concerning accessibility in hotels. This advanced accessibility training seminar will feature a certiﬁ ed access specialist (CASp) who will provide vital information about the many diverse accessibility elements in your property. This seminar will also address accessibility issues concerning the Americans with Disability Act (ADA). Hotel properties have recently become a target of attorneys ﬁ ling accessibility lawsuits. Make sure your property is up to code and learn what to look out for to avoid any potential lawsuits.
An overview of elements found in hotels, motels, inns, and restaurants along with their scoping and techni-cal requirements. These are one of the more involved building types. Not only do guest rooms have a myriad of parameters but there are many diverse ele-ments, each with their own set of requirements found within one facility. It is not unusual to ﬁ nd retail and restaurants, pools and ﬁ tness rooms, business and banquet facilities, not to mention valet service and hotel shuttles for even more complexity. We will also review some elements of barrier removal and what needs to be done even if no construction is planned. If you have have speciﬁ c facility-related questions on this topic, you can forward your questions with photos and the presenter will try to incorporate your question and the response into the seminar.
