            We stay at The Saint Hotel on Canal St. My Molift fits perfectly under the bed and it has a roll-in shower. We can't wait to get back there!

              Nice. I have not found a good hotel where I can fit my hoyer under the bed. I’m c5 complete and it takes a little planning. Lol. Sounds like you have it worked out.)

                  I'm a c3c4 incomplete. What kind of hoyer do you have? Believe me I know about planning a vacation. If we are going somewhere we haven't been before I am on the computer and phone for hours looking for a hotel that will fit our needs. If you are going somewhere and need help finding a hotel just ask someone here might be able to help.

                    I use an Invacare lift- battery powered. It is hard to find a hotel where it fits under the bed. I have really not traveled that much since my injury. You?

                      Invacare is a shitty mobile floor based lift. Any way you can get a Hoyer Advance or Molift Smart? Much more amenable to travel.

                    My wife and I love to travel! In 5 years we put 125,000 miles on our van. Some of the places we have traveled to are South Beach, Savannah, New Orleans, DC, New York and Boston to name a few. Unfortunately hotels are a pain in the butt sometimes but they are out there you just have to search for them.

                      Whoa. Way to go! Have you been on a plane? I am two years post injury so I do need to learn to be more active.

                        Yes we flew from Miami to Vegas for our honeymoon. We definitely want to fly some more. I would recommend starting off with a weekend getaway and work off of that.

                          Good job. How was that? Are you in a power chair? I need to make a trip to Mississippi for a casino trip. It will take some planning.)

                            Does your lift fold up for traveling? This is what we have. We also have the Smart Bag.
