LONDON – Accomable, a pioneering global platform for finding adapted hotels and vacation rentals for disabled and elderly people, has partnered with IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, to showcase hundreds of accessible hotel rooms from across the global organisation’s portfolio.
