W Hotels of New York is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of this website. We continue to make improvements to meet WCAG guidelines and perform ongoing monitoring to detect any new issues that may arise.
Guidelines and Standards
W Hotels of New York aims for our website to conform to level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1 AA). We have conducted an accessibility audit of our website based on these guidelines and outlined the known issues.
- The site has not been fully tested for operation with device motion or user motion
- The Google Maps used throughout to display the location of attractions is not fully accessible. A grid view is provided as an accessible alternative.
- Carousel navigation links need to be more descriptive and in the correct tab order.
- The calendar used on the Open Table booking widget needs to be more descriptive when dates are selected.
We are actively working on resolving these issues.
We are committed to resolving these issues and to bring the site into full conformance with WCAG 2.1 AA.
