Las Vegas For Special Needs Visitors


Las Vegas has more accessible guest rooms than any other city in the country. Hotels offer rooms with roll-in showers, transfer showers, and tubs with built-in or portable seats.

For swimming pools, many Las Vegas hotels have lifts to assist you getting in and out. You may also find a beach entrance.

Take time to talk to the reservation operator about your specific requirements, or if you need additional details, ask for the hotel’s ADA Coordinator.

Showrooms, Lounges and Restaurants

Most of the larger hotels have assistive listening devices for the hearing-impaired available at the showroom or lounge entrance. Wheelchair seating is also available in most restaurants, lounges and showrooms, but please call ahead for details.
