SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT
BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
PACIFIC GATEWAY, LTD., AND MARRIOTT INTERNATIONAL, INC.
UNDER THE
AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT OF 1990

DJ #202-12-109


    BACKGROUND AND JURISDICTION

  1. This Settlement Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made and entered into by the United States of America (the “United States”), on the one hand, and Pacific Gateway, Ltd. (“PGL”) and Marriott International, Inc. (“Marriott”), on the other hand. The United States, PGL, and Marriott shall be referred to collectively as the “Parties.”
  2. This Agreement resolves an investigation and compliance review conducted by the United States of the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina (the “Hotel”) under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12181-12189 (the “ADA”). The Hotel is located at 333 West Harbor Drive, San Diego, California 92101, owned by Pacific Gateway, Ltd., a subsidiary of Host Hotels & Resorts, L.P., and operated by Marriott pursuant to a management agreement between Pacific Gateway, Ltd. and Marriott.
  3. At the time of the United States’ inspection of the Hotel, it had 704 rooms with one king-sized bed, 602 rooms with two double beds, 38 bay suites, 14 hospitality suites, and four presidential suites, for a total of 1,362 rooms. The Hotel also has a pool, sauna, hot tub, marina, fitness center, business center, conference center, restaurant, and parking. Since the inspection, the Hotel has begun a renovation project that includes alterations to all of its guest rooms, the pool area, the lobby, and other common areas.
  4. The United States commenced this matter upon receiving a complaint alleging a violation of Title III of the ADA. According to the complaint, in August 2008 the complainant and his wife, who had multiple sclerosis and used a wheelchair, reserved a hotel room at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina using the Hotel’s website.1 Although the Hotel’s website allows guests to choose between a room with one king-sized bed and a room with two double beds when making a reservation, the website does not provide the same choice for someone who wishes to reserve an accessible room; the website only allows a reservation for an “accessible room.” Complainant and his wife reserved an accessible room and noted that there would be four people staying in the room since their son and daughter-in-law were traveling with them. Upon arriving at the Hotel on August 26, 2008, complainant explained that they had a reservation for an accessible room and that they wanted to make sure that the accessible room had two double beds. According to the complainant, the on-duty manager informed them that the Hotel could not place them into an accessible room with two beds because the Hotel only has accessible rooms with one bed. They then asked the manager to provide an accessible hotel room with one bed, for which they would pay full price, and a second hotel room at no charge on account of the lack of accessible guest room options. The manager refused their request. When the complainant requested to see the Hotel’s disability rights policy, the manager told him that no such policy existed. The manager eventually offered to provide the family with a discount of approximately 55% off the regular rate for the second room. They accepted the manager’s offer and paid the full price of $255.00 per night for two nights for a hotel room designated as accessible, and $139.00 per night for two nights for a second hotel room. With taxes and fees, the complainant paid a total of $983.84 for the family’s stay at the Hotel. According to the complaint, however, when the complainant’s wife reached her hotel room, which was designated as accessible, she noticed that the room was not fully accessible and did not provide, among other things, grab bars next to the toilet. The lack of accessible features in the hotel room prevented her from fully enjoying the room and made it more difficult for her to use the bathroom.
  5. The United States investigated the complaint and also initiated a compliance review of the Hotel, pursuant to the Attorney General’s authority under 42 U.S.C. § 12188(b)(1)(A)(i). The United States reviewed information provided by the Hotel and conducted a site visit of the Hotel, which began on November 10, 2009.
  6. The Hotel is a place of lodging and is a place of public accommodation. PGL and Marriott are public accommodations because each is a private entity that owns, leases, leases to, or operates a place of public accommodation. 42 U.S.C. §§ 12181(7)(A); 28 C.F.R. § 36.104. Accordingly, PGL and Marriott are subject to the requirements of Title III of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12181-12189, and its implementing regulations, 28 C.F.R. Part 36, including the applicable ADA Standards for Accessible Design.
  7. The Hotel was designed and constructed for first occupancy prior to January 26, 1992. Among other things, Title III of the ADA requires that PGL remove barriers to access at the Hotel where it is readily achievable to do so, 42 U.S.C. § 12182(b)(2)(A)(iv), and that any altered facilities at the Hotel comply with the requirements of 42 U.S.C. § 12183, which are implemented through 28 C.F.R. Part 36, including the applicable ADA Standards for Accessible Design. The ADA Standards for Accessible Design also serve as a guide to identify barriers to be removed at the Hotel.
  8. Title III prohibits public accommodations from discriminating against individuals with disabilities in the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations being offered. 42 U.S.C. § 12182(a). Title III also requires a public accommodation to make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices, and procedures when such modifications are necessary to afford such goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations to individuals with disabilities, unless the public accommodation can demonstrate that taking those steps would fundamentally alter the nature of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations being offered. 42 U.S.C. § 12182(b)(2)(A)(ii); 28 C.F.R. § 36.302. Further, a public accommodation must maintain in operable working condition those features that are required to be accessible. 42 U.S.C. § 12182(b)(1)(E); 28 C.F.R. § 36.211(a).
  9. Title III makes it unlawful to exclude or otherwise deny equal goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, accommodations, or other opportunities to an individual because of his or her relationship or association to someone with a known disability. 28 C.F.R. § 36.205.
  10. INVESTIGATION AND COMPLIANCE REVIEW

  11. In the course of its investigation, the United States identified barriers to access at the Hotel using as a guide the ADA Standards for Accessible Design, 28 C.F.R Part 36, App. A (“1991 Standards”) 2. Barriers include:

    6. Hallways to Guest Rooms

    7. There are protruding objects in the Hotel hallways, such as hallway lights and exit signs, § 4.4, and there is inadequate clear floor space at amenities such as the ice makers and drink dispensers located on each floor, § 4.2.4.
    8. Dining Areas and Associated Spaces

    9. The dining areas of the Hotel lack compliant features in the following categories: clear floor space, maneuvering clearance, protected piping, and signage, including toilet rooms at Roy’s Restaurant, §§ 36.211, 4.17.2, 4.16.2, 4.17.3, 4.19.3, 4.19.4 & 4.30.
    10. Other Public Areas

    11.

    12. Hotel Grounds

    13. The Hotel grounds have handrails, landing dimensions, ramp runs, running slopes and cross slopes, maneuvering clearances (including at the sauna and exit door to tennis courts), platform lift keys, slopes at lift door, hoistway signs at elevator, counter heights, signs, and lockers that do not comply with the 1991 Standards, including at the main entrance, outside of the Marina office, and at parking areas, §§ 36.211, 4.3.7, 4.8.5, 4.8.6 & 4.26.
    14. Parking

    15. There is inadequate accessible parking, as well as noncompliant signage and van signage, access aisles, handrail extensions, slopes, and curb ramps, §§ 4.3.7, 4.8.5, 4.8.6 & 4.26.
  13. The United States also identified other violations of Title III and its implementing regulations, including: (1) failing to provide customers wishing to reserve an accessible room with the same choice of bedroom type that nondisabled customers are provided; and (2) failing to make a reasonable modification of policies, practices, and procedures, like providing a second hotel room at no charge when an accessible room with two beds was not available. 42 U.S.C. § 12182(a); 42 U.S.C. § 12182(b)(2)(A)(ii).
  14. PGL and Marriott deny the statements contained in Paragraphs 4, 10, and 11 above. PGL and Marriott further deny that they have violated the ADA. This Agreement shall not be construed as an admission of liability or wrongdoing by PGL or Marriott.
  15. TERMS OF AGREEMENT

  16. In order to avoid potential litigation, the Parties agree to the terms of this Agreement without any admission of liability by PGL or Marriott. This Agreement does not affect PGL’s and Marriott’s continuing responsibility to comply with all aspects of the ADA. PGL will ensure that any alterations made to the Hotel fully comply with Title III and its implementing regulations.
  17. PGL agrees to remove barriers to access at the Hotel as described in Attachment A, in compliance with Title III of the ADA, in the timeframes set forth in Attachment A. PGL further agrees that any alterations to the Hotel since the United States’ November 9, 2009 survey of the Hotel will fully comply with the applicable ADA Standards for Accessible Design pursuant to Title III of the ADA.
  18. In order to provide persons with disabilities a range of options equivalent to those available to other persons served by the Hotel, within six months of the effective date of this Agreement, PGL shall provide the number and types of accessible rooms set forth in Attachment B.
  19. Within ten months of the effective date of this Agreement, Marriott shall ensure that customers seeking to make a reservation at this Hotel on the web have the option of selecting an accessible room with one king-sized bed, or an accessible room with two double beds, or accessible suites, or rooms for those who are hearing impaired, when making a reservation. Marriott shall honor such selections when taking reservations from and assigning rooms to guests.
  20. By June 30, 2011, Marriott shall provide a copy of Attachment B to all personnel at the Hotel who work at the front desk or whose routine job functions require them to interact with persons seeking reservations. This list shall serve as the accessible room reference. 
  21. Within six months of the effective date of this Agreement, Marriott shall develop and implement a written Disability Rights Policy for the Hotel that: (1) sets forth and explains the antidiscrimination mandate of title III of the ADA; (2) describes the duty to make reasonable modifications to policies, practices and procedures under the ADA and provides examples of such modifications; and (3) identifies and explains the procedures that employees must follow when responding to requests for reasonable modifications made by persons with disabilities, including ensuring that the person who decides whether to grant or deny the request has received the training identified in Paragraph 20. Marriott shall provide a draft of such Policy to the Department of Justice for review and comment prior to dissemination.
  22. Within thirty days of receiving the Department’s comments on the Disability Rights Policy, Marriott shall cause to be disseminated a copy of the Policy to all managers of the Hotel, as well as any employee of the Hotel who takes reservations, checks-in guests, or works at the Front Desk of the Hotel.

  23. Within six months of the effective date of this Agreement, Marriott shall provide training on Title III of the ADA to every manager and Front Desk employee at the Hotel, as well as any employees whose routine job functions require them to interact with guests, and any employee at the Hotel who receives, handles, or processes reservations, customer complaints, or requests for reasonable modifications. For all of these employees, the training session shall cover the anti-discrimination provisions of Title III of the ADA; the duty to make reasonable modifications to policies, practices and procedures under the ADA; and the Hotel’s new Disability Rights Policy. Front desk employees and any employees at the Hotel who receive, handle, or process reservations will also receive training on the need to hold accessible rooms for possible use by persons with disabilities until all other rooms in the same price category have been rented, and the classes and types of rooms that the Hotel offers that are designated as accessible. Within fourteen days of the training, Marriott shall provide the United States with an attendance sheet that indicates which employees attended the training, their titles, and when it occurred.
  24. Within fifteen days of the effective date of this Agreement, PGL shall provide the United States with a copy of the latest architectural plans (for all the planned renovations to the Hotel) that include all accessible features. Throughout the term of this Agreement, PGL shall provide any new plans that have accessible features or revised architectural plans that have or affect accessible features to the United States as such plans become available.

The Parties shall endeavor to resolve the United States’ concerns in good faith so as to ensure full compliance with the ADA and its implementing regulations. If after 90 days, PGL refuses to amend its plans to avoid the potential violations identified by the United States, the United States may enforce this Agreement pursuant to Paragraph 25.
  25.

PGL shall provide a copy of the check to the Department of Justice within seven days of sending the check to the complainant.
  26. In consideration of the terms of this Agreement, the United States agrees to refrain from undertaking further investigation of and from filing a civil suit against PGL or Marriott (or any of their subsidiaries) to enforce the ADA regarding all matters contained within this Agreement and its attachments, except as provided for in Paragraph 25.
  27. IMPLEMENTATION AND ENFORCEMENT

  28. During the term of this Agreement, PGL and Marriott shall provide periodic reports to the United States regarding their progress with respect to the completion of their respective responsibilities pursuant to Paragraphs 13 to 20 of this Agreement.

Such evidence may include, but is not limited to, color photographs, purchase orders, permits, and/or architectural drawings, as necessary. Nothing in this Agreement prohibits engaging an ADA consultant to submit such reports to the United States on their behalf. The United States may inspect the property in order to assess compliance with this Agreement.
  29. The United States may review compliance with this Agreement at any time and may enforce this Agreement or file a lawsuit under Title III of the ADA if the United States be­lieves that this Agreement or any requirement thereof has been violated. If the United States believes that this Agreement or any portion of it has been violated, it will raise its concern(s) with PGL and Marriott, and the Parties will attempt to resolve the concern(s) in good faith. If the Parties are unable to reach a satisfactory resolution of the issue or issues raised within thirty (30) days of the date the United States provides notice to PGL and Marriott, the United States may institute a civil action in federal district court directly to enforce Title III of the ADA and/or to enforce the terms of this Agreement.
  30. Failure by the United States to enforce any provision or deadline of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of its right to enforce other provisions or deadlines of this Agreement.
  31. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties relating to Department of Justice No. 202-12-109, and no other statement, promise, or agreement, written or oral, made by any party or agents of any party, that is not contained in this written Agreement, including its attachments, shall be enforceable.
  32. This Agreement shall be binding on the United States, PGL, and Marriott. In the event PGL seeks to transfer, sell, or assign all or part of its interest in the Hotel, and the successor or assignee intends on carrying on the same or similar use of the facility, as a condition of sale, PGL shall obtain the written accession of the successor or assignee to any obligation remaining under this Agreement that has been assumed by PGL for the remaining term of this Agreement. In the event that Marriott ceases to manage the Hotel, PGL or its successor shall cause any subsequent manager of the Hotel to fulfill any remaining obligation assumed by Marriott under this Agreement for the remaining term of this Agreement.
  33. All notices, demands, reports, or other communications to be provided pursuant to this Agreement shall be in writing and delivered by email or overnight mail to the following persons and addresses (or such other persons and addresses as any party may designate in writing):
