Visit London, the official London tourism and visitor body, has launched a new guide to over 800 accessible hotel rooms in the capital – the most detailed such guide to any city anywhere.
The online guide has been drawn up to ensure that disabled visitors to the capital have an easy source of information on where to find suitable hotel accommodation and notes services such as low level counters, hearing induction loops, facilities for visually impaired guests and adjoining rooms for carers.
One of the most useful features is a set of photographs for individual routes through each hotel, showing for example how to get from the car park to reception, or from there to the rooms or to the restaurant. Alongside the photographs are details of surfaces, distances, light levels, signage and door widths.
James Bidwell, Chief Executive of Visit London, said, "This hotel guide is of great value in helping make London a truly accessible city. Our "accessible London" pages on visitlondon.com also suggest how visitors can use London’s public transport, theatres, attractions and shops more easily."
