ALS Association


ADA Rooms

**Please note: In order to reserve an ADA room, you must complete the rooming survey and follow the process laid out by The ALS Association.

Register by April 29 – Early Registration/ Room Assignments Based on Need.

There are a limited number of ADA certified rooms and for that reason an ADA room is not guaranteed. Specific ADA room assignments are based on the needs of the person living with ALS and the availability of rooms that meet those specifications. Room assignment are not made by the hotel but will be made by The ALS Association staff after the participant has completed a survey specifying their needs. Room assignments will be made on a rolling basis after April 29.

The ALS Association has reserved all available ADA certified rooms at three luxury hotels – the J.W. Marriott. the Willard Hotel and the Marriott Metro Center Hotel. The Willard Hotel is across the street from the J.W. Marriott. Please note that the most appropriate ADA certified hotel room may be at the Willard Hotel or the Marriott Metro Center and a wheelchair accessible shuttle will be provided for anyone who needs one from these hotels to the J.W. Marriott.

The number of ADA certified rooms at the hotels are as follows: J.W. Marriott (22 rooms), Willard Hotel (8 rooms), and Marriott Metro Center (10 rooms). The hotels also have a few “ADA like” rooms with larger doorways to accommodate a wheelchair and showers instead of bathtubs.

How to Secure an ADA Room

Register and Complete Survey by April 29.

This year staff from The ALS Association will be matching participants living with ALS to an appropriate ADA room to ensure a smoother process. Because all ADA rooms are reserved for the conference – the hotel will not be able to assign an ADA room. To secure an ADA room, all participants living with ALS must complete this survey detailing their specific needs by the April 29 early registration deadline.
