This Hotel received our 4-star Sage Accessibility rating, because of its wonderful accessibility features and has been personally inspected by John Sage. The hotel features fully accessible common spaces made wheelchair friendly with smooth, flat surfaces, wide doorways, and wide elevators to navigate between the different floors. The accessible rooms feature a spacious layout with sufficient turning space and low carpet. The disabled bathrooms are equipped with a barrier-free roll in shower with grab bars and grab bars by the toilet. This hotel did not receive a higher rating because the grab bar in the roll in shower is on the wall but cannot fold down and wheelchair users can only partially roll under the sink. The wall on the balcony is also high which means less of a view if you are seated.
The accessible rooms are equipped with a large King Bed with space for a wheelchair on either side of the bed.
The accessible bathroom is equipped with a barrier-free roll in shower with grab bars and an attached shower chair. You’ll also find a handheld showerhead. The bathroom has grab bars by the toilet as well.
The accessible room comes with a balcony. There is a small lip to enter and the wall is high which makes it hard to see over when seated in a wheelchair.
The hotel lobby is grand and spacious with smooth, flat flooring and seating areas. The hallways have rugs.
The hotel has several accessible onsite restaurants and bars with both indoor and outdoor seating. You can sit and enjoy a meal with a view of the Burj Khalifa!
The pool lounge area is accessible but there is no lift into the pool. There are paved paths available to reach the outdoor spaces.
