Carlson Rezidor deal with ‘Airbnb for disabled’

Hotel giant partners sharing economy accommodation provider
Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has partnered with Accomable, an online platform to find disabled-accessible hotels, holiday rentals and apartments – described as an Airbnb for the disabled – to distribute its inventory there.
Catering to the needs of disabled and elderly travellers, the UK-based Accomable is a sharing economy accommodation provider that officially started business last June.
Users can now view and book over 100 of Carlson Rezidor’s hotels, initially located in the Asia Pacific region, that are equipped with accessible guestrooms and facilities. There are plans to increase the listings as the hotel giant opens more properties in the region.
“We are excited to collaborate with Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and their proven portfolio of strong brands. The accessible traveller community welcomes their hotels’ accessible guestroom features, excellent service and international hospitality standards that assure safety and comfort,” Accomable’s chief executive and co-founder Srin Madipalli commented on the partnership.
Accomable currently offers more than 600 accessible properties in over 60 countries worldwide, with plans to increase its listings to 1,500 properties by the end of the year.
