For travelers with disabilities visiting the State of Indiana, there are a number of wheelchair accessible hotel rooms in Fort Wayne.

Accessibility varies between hotels, but this guide provides important information and photos of ADA accessible hotel rooms in Fort Wayne. Please note that this is not a complete list of accessible hotels in the city, only those which I have personally stayed in and verified or toured to perform accessibility assessments.

The Bradley Hotel

Located steps from Promenade Park and The Landing at the heart of Downtown Fort Wayne, The Bradley Hotel is one of the city’s premier boutique hotels and a great choice for disabled tourists.

The Bradley Hotel offers ADA accessible guest rooms with both one and two beds and a roll-in shower. The king size bed in my room measured 25 inches in height from the floor to the top of the mattress, with the mattress sitting atop an 11 inch platform base. A desk in the room measured 30 inches tall, with 28 inches of clearance underneath.

The bathroom featured a roll-under sink, toilet with grab bars, and a roll-in shower with a wall-mounted L-shaped seat. The bathroom was small compared to the size of the room, which made turning my wheelchair difficult in some instances, but I was able to make full use of the facilities. The measurements of bathroom accessibility features were as follows:

  • Sink height; free space under sink — 33.5 inches; 27 inches
  • Toilet seat height — 17.5 inches
  • Toilet grab bar height — 35 inches
  • Shower seat height — 18.5 inches
  • L-shaped shower seat dimensions — Width: 28 inches (13 inches wide at deepest end, 15 inches wide at shallowest portion); Depth: 20.5 and 14 inches
  • Shower grab bar height — 35 inches

Courtyard Fort Wayne Downtown

Located downtown and connected to the Grand Wayne Convention Center via an accessible skybridge, the Courtyard Fort Wayne Downtown has eleven ADA accessible guest rooms, three with roll-in showers and eight rooms with bathtubs.

I toured a room with a king size bed, and noted a bed height of 28 inches, measured from the floor to the top of the mattress. There was 7 inches of clearance beneath the bed to accommodate a transfer hoist.

The bathroom featured a roll-under sink, toilet with grab bars, and a roll-in shower with a portable shower chair. There was plenty of space to maneuver my large power wheelchair, and a spot to park the wheelchair directly alongside the toilet for safe lateral transfers.

Hampton Inn & Suites Fort Wayne Downtown

Overlooking the Parkview Field baseball stadium and located next to the Grand Wayne Convention Center, the Hampton Inn & Suites Fort Wayne Downtown hotel is one of the most accessible hotels in the city and should be near the top of your list for consideration.

King size bed in hotel room.

The Hampton Inn & Suites offers ten ADA accessible guest rooms with both one and two beds and a roll-in shower or bathtub. The accessible room inventory consists of one double queen room with a roll-in shower, one double queen room with a bathtub, seven rooms with a king size bed and tub, and one king suite with a roll-in shower. I toured the accessible suite with a roll-in shower.

The king size bed measured 26 inches in height from the floor to the top of the mattress, with 7 inches of clearance for a transfer hoist underneath the bed frame.

The wheelchair accessible bathroom is one of the most accessible in the City of Fort Wayne. The room I toured featured a roll-under sink, toilet with grab bars, and a roll-in shower with a wall-mounted seat and water controls within reach.
