Accessibility issues

I was frankly appalled last night that the suite rented by General Technics in the Sheraton Hotel did not allow for access by a friend in a 32" wheelchair. The princely sum of $250 a night is apparently not enough to guarantee access to all. How maddening!

Another friend confined to a wheelchair was just telling me how sad he was that there was no simple "pocket program" (such as a printed grid of major events), or even a posted sign that he could 'drive by' to look at and decide where to go next.

Would anyone on the con staff care to address these issues?

I am aware that the Sheraton has very narrow doors and hallways. Their handicapped rooms are at the end of corridors and have wider doors.

The convention was unable to fit all the programming into a grid.
