2.  PARIS HOTEL WHEELCHAIR ACCESS SURVEY 2010

Howard L. Chabner and Michele E. DeSha
recently completed their 2010 update to their 2007 Paris Hotel Wheelchair Access Survey. The couple wanted to help wheelchair users and other travelers with mobility limitations find an accessible hotel in central Paris.  Their new 2010 survey provides a host of accessible accommodation options for a range of budgets. They spent many hours researching and writing their new survey and urge other disabled travelers to Paris to act as access advocates at hotels they visit.
