The hotel that got it just right


As a regular traveler I am always happy whenever I can stay at a hotel that has gone out of its way to be accommodating to me as a blind customer and I am always more than delighted to put in a plug for said hotel.

In late April, 2013, I had the pleasure of staying at the Cambridge Suites Hotel on Richmond Street in downtown Toronto. I was there to attend the 2013 AGM of the Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians and I stayed from April 25 to April 28.

This hotel went out of its way to accommodate our group and their facilities and amenities were extremely accessible. They went out of their way to ensure that blind persons were made comfortable. Their elevator buttons were well labeled in Braille. The doors of our luxurious suites were also labeled in Braille, and guess what! All of the bottles containing the various liquids in our bathrooms were also labeled in Braille. The shampoo, body wash, body lotion, and conditioner bottles were all labeled.

This hotel really got it when it came to accommodating us as a group of blind persons. Their conference rooms were also very accessible and their waiters and waitresses were absolutely top class when it came to serving the meal.
Kudos to the Cambridge Suites on Richmond Street in downtown Toronto.
