Most overhyped Hotel Trends

No matter how the hotels have improved their hotels by concentrating on interior designs, more amenities and appliances and investing in high-tech gadgets mainly to attract geek travelers, they are still ignoring the 750million people in the world with a disability. Hotels should stop spending their money on these interior improvements etc, and concentrate on spending their money by offering wheelchair accessible accommodation. Australia is far behind the rest of the world, which in itself is not too good, in ensuring that tourism providers offer wheelichair accessible accommodation. Untill the hotels realise that people requiring these facilities rarely travel alone, so one room for a guest in a wheelchair generally involves two or three rooms for family, carer and/or friends. Hotels failing to offer these facilities should realise that this is not only a moral issue but for them it is an economic one.
