As Deaf Advocates, we are passionate about helping businesses become more inclusive. With this goal in mind, we’re thrilled to announce our newest training: “Deaf-Friendly Hotel”. Our digital course tackles a critical problem in the hospitality industry— a lack of awareness on how to effectively serve the third-largest market segment: the deaf and hard of hearing community.

Why Deaf-Friendly Training Matters

The sizable, overlooked deaf and hard of hearing community holds significant spending power, exceeding $9 billion in extra spending money. Consequently, many hotels lack adequate accommodations and services, leading to frustrating and sometimes unsafe experiences for guests. In turn, our “Deaf-Friendly Hotel” Training equips your staff with the knowledge and tools to create a truly inclusive environment.

Personal Stories: Real Challenges, Easy Solutions

The Unanswered Door Knock

Take the example of the unanswered door knock. A deaf guest shared the shock of being walked in on by housekeeping while using the restroom because she couldn’t hear the knock. Even worse, imagine the shock of being in the shower when someone enters your hotel room – a violation no guest deserves.

Room Service Struggles

Ordering room service is another significant challenge. Another guest described having to go to the front desk every time she wanted to order food. Here’s a relatable scenario: it’s late at night, you’re comfortably dressed in your pajamas, and you have to venture downstairs just to place an order for a late-night snack or wine. This inconvenience removes the luxury and relaxation room service should provide

Fire Alarm Fears

Undoubtedly, safety is a paramount concern for all guests. However, many hotels lack visual fire alarms inside guest rooms. Imagine the anxiety of a deaf mother. She worries every night about whether she will be alerted in the event of a fire. Being away from home, especially when traveling without children, can be stressful enough. Adding to this stress is the unnecessary burden of missing an emergency alarm because there is no visual notification.
