This has been going on for years and especially since travel has rebounded over the past year or so
Hotels simply want to offer the least desirable rooms so they can more easily sell the most desirable inventory first if possible
They have to offer something as they are bound to by program rules
Next few weeks I tried booking the InterContinental Los Angeles downtown on points and the same thing happened
Only handicapped rooms.Ive noticed too at MGM resorts in Las Vegas some of their brands sell the handicapped accessible rooms for less as they are the last to sell or the least desirable rooms unless you are indeed handicapped

But always moved to a non-handicapped room at check-in.

Please tread lightly before bringing your concerns to the right people. All you stand to gain is getting the hotel to remove options to use our certs.
You are absolutely incorrect about other rooms. The only rooms available for booking with a Free Night Award are the Accessible rooms. Points are on a totally different system and can basically always be booked.

As for your last line... gross.

This
Also gross.

Kind of sad that you people care more about the possibility of a Free Night Award chart being changed than you do people who actually need those rooms.

This doesnt affect handicapped people in any way. Its just the hotel playing games to try and prevent points redemptions. Its very easy to book the accessible room and then email or call the hotel to let them know that you wont need the accessible room itself and are happy to be moved to another one, if someone with mobility issues needs that room. The hotel knows what they are doing. Its their job to manage inventory.

Excuse me, but if you read a few posts back I said I always put in the notes that I don't need a handicapped room. If I happen to get one because there was not a true need, I don't care one way or the other.

But it's wrong of them to state that if you don't need one, don't book this room. That effectively puts you in a position of never being able to use a FNC.

That's what's gross.

California law doesn’t allow a new $1000n 200 room hotel to have fewer ADA rooms than a new $100n 200 room hotel, even though being handicap is an excellent predictor of demand for more $200n rooms than $1000n rooms. So, a $1000n luxury hotel has a vast oversupply of ADA rooms.

The amount of incorrect information in your last post is amazing….have no idea where to begin….but here goes….

All Standard Room Reward space is available for FNCs. At the WABH the standard award room goes for 120K points. Any room going for that amount can be used for a FNC. If you look in July most nights are available for 120K. Some are assigned to ADA rooms and some to non-ADA rooms. FNC can be used on either.

Absolutely false. Two Queen Superior Room is bookable as a standard room with points and certificates. Also, this hotel is beyond accommodating (and easily the best WA in the USA). I have a 5 night stay coming up in the summer and booked a Deluxe King Accessible with points. I like to guarantee the Beverly Hills king in advance for the larger room and view, and a quick email secured a confirmed upgrade for a measly $85.00/night + tax. Not only will they change within your category from an accessible to non-accessible for free, they will confirm an upgrade to whatever category you want if you pay the difference, thus freeing up the accessible room back into inventory.

You should probably become knowledgeable about the topic before posting misinformation in this forum. Will save you quite a bit of embarrassment and not mislead forum readers.

Has anyone actually stayed in an ADA room here? Think a review of it would be beneficial in case anyone ends up with one?
