Accessibility Details

This wheelchair accessible Florence hotel for families received a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating. It didn’t receive 5 stars because the hotel staff have to be notified to bring out a steep portable ramp at the building entrance.

The standard rooms are accessible and so are the deluxe rooms.  The deluxe room (shown in the photo below) has 2 single beds next to each other. There is room on both sides of the bed for a wheelchair to fit. There is a beautiful wooden table and chair set near the foot of the bed.

If you press the button at the entrance to the hotel, a staff member will bring out a portable ramp to get into the building. It’s pretty steep but I was able to get up it without assistance.
