All of Concord’s nine hotels and motels are certified ADA compliant, offering special rooms, facilities, ramps, parking and more, with amenities varying at each location. All hotels also offer Concord Sensory Bags - read more below.
We understand that traveling and shaking up a routine can be difficult for those living with sensory sensitivities, and researchers say that practice can help! In our Practice Stay program, families with a diagnosed loved one with sensory sensitivities or who are on the autism spectrum can stay in a Concord hotel overnight for free.
CONCORD SENSORY BAGS
At each hotel front desk, you can request a Concord Sensory Bag to use during your stay (not take-home). These special kits include ear protectors, a seven-pound weighted blanket, branded sunglasses, some fun trinkets and toys, communication cards, a popper fidget toy, a whiteboard and marker, and a white noise machine.
