the darling, westin and sheraton on the park defiantly offer facilities that your husband requires. For views i would recommend the darling as it isnt as blocked out by other buildings to get the best viewsas far as wheelchair access I would say that the darling had this in our room however in saying that there was no rails in the shower to assist your husband.
