How to make your hotel lobby more accessible

You may be thinking that this is going to be quite a chore for you but believe me when I tell you that it is not nearly as difficult as you may think. The trick here is to keep it super simple and all will be well.

I have some tips to get you started.

  1. Make sure that it is easy to access your hotel lobby from the outside. Provide wheelchair ramps and doors that are easy to open. A door that opens automatically, stays open long enough, and one that wheelchairs can travel through easily.
  2. Make sure that if you have carpets inside the doors that they are securely fastened down so that no one can trip over them. These carpets should be void of materials that are slippery. Think of those using canes, wheelchairs, and walkers.
  3. Yourservice/reception desk should either be straight ahead of the door or very easy to find. In short, as close to the entrance as you can have it.
  4. If you have tiles on your floor then make sure that they are free of being slippery and that they are in colours that are easy to see.
  5. Make sure that hallways are easy to distinguish, and that walls are painted in colours that enable persons to easily identify them.
  6. Make sure that elevators are easy to find and that their doors are also easily distinguishable.
  7. You need to ensure that couches, sofas, and chairs and tables in the waiting area are also easy to find. Chairs need to be suitable enough for ease of comfort. Tables need to be at a reasonable height; not too low and not too high.

This should be a good start for you!
