Hotel Owners & Managers: Part of the cost may be tax deductible. Consult your accountant for details. Failure to comply with the ADA may result in fines up to $50,000 for the first violation and $100,000 for each subsequent violation. For additional information regarding ADA compliance, please call the US Department of Justice at (800) 514-0301, or check their web site: www.usdoj.gov/crt/ada/adahom1.htm.

Over 25 million Deaf and hard of hearing travelers will patronize the hotel and motel industry each year. By complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and making your rooms safe for all of your customers you will avoid unnecessary lawsuits and raise your company's positive image. Our compact and affordable ADA compliance kits are simple to store, easy to set up and give you all the devices necessary to accommodate your Deaf or Hard of Hearing guests. To purchase accessibility kits, please contact ASL Services at http://www.aslservices.com/kits.html
