I thought you might be interested in sharing with your readers this report from Consumer Reports “Allergen-free room is nothing to sneeze at” on major chains, including Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton, and Fairmont, are setting aside “hypoallergenic” rooms. This report is published in Consumer Reports May 2011 issue, available online and on newsstands.

Here’s the link:

Here is an excerpt:

“Creating a hypoallergenic hotel room (handled in many hotels by a company called PURE Solutions) is no small task. It involves, for example, installing a powerful air purifier (listed as a medical device by the Food and Drug Administration); scrubbing carpeting and upholstery with a solution designed to remove imperceptible dirt, bacteria, and mold; treating surfaces with an antibacterial shield; and wrapping mattresses and pillows in cases fine enough to block the passage of dust mites.”

Hope you’ll find this piece useful and that you’ll share it with your readers.

Thought you might be interested in our non-profit, Phoenix-based organization, Disabled Explorers.

We take disabled people out for individualized backcountry exploration on four-wheel drive trips. We’ve built a custom, 4×4 wheelchair van.

You can read more about our projects at:

We have a small expedition coming up in late January on the historic El Camino del Diablo trail in extreme southern Arizona.

all the best,

I am living in Japan. Many people uses train to move around Tokyo.
Tokyo’s station is accessible with ramp, elevator,etc.
But in the countryside of Japan, accessibility is developing.
I welcome foreign travelers to Japan.
