Christopher Allen, of the UK, recently traveled to the US with his mother who uses a wheelchair. Despite stating his mother’s specific requirements when making reservations and being assured of wheelchair accessible rooms in several cities, the duo found only one usable Hilton hotel room during the entire trip. Mr. Allen immediately complained about the deplorable service. To learn more about Hilton’s response to their treatment, visit http://www.geocities.com/Paris/1502/hiltonwarning.htm
