Building code requirements for grab bars
I was surprised recently when I stayed in a Hyatt Regency hotel (in other words, not a Motel 6) in a major American city and discovered that the tub/shower unit had no grab bar. Just smooth tile walls.
Hmm, I thought. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.
I know that ADA-compliant apartments need grab bars. But what about hotels? Does anybody know whether building codes require grab bars in hotel rooms?
