Atlantic City Hotels Settle with Feds on Disability Act

Five Atlantic City hotels that allegedly were not in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act have reached settlements with federal officials.

A settlement of five Atlantic City hotels over alleged non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities act was announced this week.

The settlements were reached with Resorts Casino Hotel; the Tropicana Casino and Resort; the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel; The Rainforest Café at the former Trump Plaza and the Trump Taj Mahal, according to a news release from federal officials.

The agreements require the businesses to fix any violations and allow people with disabilities full access to the facilities. That includes ensuring that they may reserve an accessible guest room online; that parking is accessible (including by providing van-accessible spaces) and that guest rooms and services are ADA compliant.

The settlements also require each business to implement and/or amend its ADA disability rights policies and provide training to its staff regarding the law’s provisions.
