A very interesting opinion piece from inclusive design consultant Rachael Marshall of the Inclusive Hotels Network. She very kindly came to talk to us about the purple pound (money spent by households with at least one disabled member) and the strong economic case for making hotels accessible to all, without detracting from their attractiveness to able-bodied guests. 

The economic case also extends to the public realm, with her plaudits to Argent for their thoughtful Access Inclusivity Strategy for the Kings Cross development and providing an accessibility map on their website.
