Update: Hartford Marriott's disability woes


A while back I posted about the brand-spanking-new Marriott in Hartford, Conn., and its fight to not have to bring its ADA-compliant rooms up to Connecticut code, which is stricter. Today I hear from hotel-online this:

    Fifteen handicapped accessible bathrooms at the soon-to-open Marriott Hartford Downtown have been demolished and plans are underway to make them easier for guests in wheelchairs to use, state officials said last week.

    "We're pushing hard," said Mark Wolman, an executive with the developer, Waterford Group LLC, who added that the hotel will open in August. "We will be done for the opening."
