Philadelphia is an extremely affordable city with a large number of wheelchair accessible hotel rooms across all price points. There are many options for wheelchair-friendly accommodations throughout the city, and especially in the downtown “Center City” area.
When deciding on a particular hotel, it is important to seek out information on access before showing up at the hotel. Ask about everything—door width, thresholds, shower/tub set-up, bed height, grab bars, shower chairs—to avoid a surprise when you arrive.
I’ve taken the time to compile the following list of hotels in Philadelphia which offer handicap accessible rooms (all offer roll-in showers). This is not a complete list of accessible hotels in the city. Hotels listed in bold are properties I have stayed at myself – click the hotel name for my detailed review (with pictures).
