Just wanted to clarify about handicapped rooms at the Senator.  They do have only 2 rooms that are totally wheel chair accessible (handicapped) but have many others that are handicapped furnished with showers and bars etc.  I just wanted people to understand the two mentioned are wheelchair accessible including the showers.
