Many hoteliers I talk to are not that concerned about the impact of AirBnB.  However, our location in the Midwest

might have something to do with that response.  If you are in a gateway city or similar high profile destination, you might think

differently.  Check out the article posted in Hositality Business News regarding the Penn State University's study on Phoenix.  AirBnB is

becoming hard to ignore.

ADA lawsuits

My colleagues and I are inside more hotels than most people.  And we rountinely see defieciecies relating to the American Disabilities Act.

I am not an expert on the Act and therefore, I do not know if the deficencies are related to the "reasonable accomodation" standards.

However, I highly suspect many do not meet that standard.  In an article published in Hospitality.net newletter, Matt Anderson of the law firm Jaburg Wilks in

Phoenix, published a brief article regarding the "tester" ADA lawsuits in AZ.  I found his comments very informative.
