For travelers with disabilities visiting the Commonwealth of Virginia, there are a number of wheelchair accessible hotel rooms in Richmond.

Accessibility varies between hotels, but this guide provides important information and photos of ADA accessible hotel rooms in Richmond. 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.

Hilton Richmond Downtown

Located two blocks from the Greater Richmond Convention Center and four blocks from the State Capitol, the Hilton Richmond Downtown Hotel is one of the city’s premier hotels and a great choice for disabled tourists.

Two queen beds in a hotel room.

The Hilton hotel offers ADA accessible guest rooms with both one and two beds and either a roll-in shower or accessible bathtub. The queen size beds in my room measured 29 inches in height from the floor to the top of the mattress, with the mattress sitting atop a 10 inch boxspring and 7.5 inch platform base.

The high level of accessibility continued into the bathroom, with a roll-under sink, toilet with grab bars, and a bathtub with a properly secured seat. The measurements of bathroom accessibility features were as follows:

The room accessibility was surprisingly good, with plenty of space to move about in my power wheelchair and a bathtub that featured a built-in seat. Here are some measurements of the room’s accessible features:

  • Sink height; free space under sink — 33.5 inches; 31/27.5 inches
  • Toilet seat height — 17.5 inches
  • Toilet grab bar height — 36 inches
  • Bathtub seat height — 17 inches
