We booked an "accessible" room for my husband in a wheelchair after having surgery on his ankle. His other leg is artificial so bathing is a wee bit more difficult. We had an appointment at the cast clinic at the nearby hospital (Peter Lougheed Centre); this hotel is 5 minutes away.
Getting into the room itself is a little difficult. The door is quite heavy and wants to close; the same is true for leaving the room. You almost need someone to hold it for you.
The room was fine - pretty much everything was in reach for my husband. The closet, the heating/cooling controls, the fridge, the king sized bed were all the right height. I love the pillows! The room was nice and quiet.
The bathroom door was wide enough for his standard size wheelchair. Barely. If you have a larger chair, you may have troubles getting it in the door. The bathroom was very roomy and had a raised toilet, a grab bar by the toilet and one grab bar in the tub itself. No other grab bars at all. The sink was a good height and easy to get the wheelchair underneath it.
The tub was a problem. There was no handheld shower and no shower chair although I suppose you can grab a plastic chair from the pool area. Our room was on the bottom floor just a few rooms down form the pool. The tub did have a non slip surface applied which was not very noticeable. It seemed to be effective enough for me anyway. I used the shower but my husband did not bother; it was just too inconvenient without the handheld showerhead. Good water pressure and plenty of hot water.
At the continental breakfast, not everything was in reach but the young lady there was very helpful in helping my husband get anything he wanted.
The young man at check in was very welcoming, the checkout staff is a little aloof/standoffish.
