The economic argument for hoteliers to provide fully accessible rooms is growing in acceptance around the world. In an article in Singapore’s The Strait Times, the author urges the country to improve its record of catering to guests with disabilities, citing the global rise of accessible tourism.

Features include two peepholes in the doors, vibrating alarm clocks, reclinable beds, and wardrobe hangers that can be reached by shorter guests and those in wheelchairs.
