I am typing this letter as both a parent & chaperone for Special Olympic Athletes. We stayed at the Radisson Hotel at 7475 Chandler Blvd in Chandler on March 27-28 during the SO Basketball & Cheer tourney. I was saddened and appalled by the segregation we received. There were 5 groups of SO athletes staying at the hotel consisting of 15-20 kids, chaperones and coaches per group. I’m not positive, but I think the number of our Special Olympic athletes far outweighed the number of other guests at the hotel for the weekend.

With 41 HD televisions sprinkled throughout the bar, dining room, patios and game rooms, it’s easy to keep your eye on the game. But you might not even notice it when you sink your teeth into the signature bagel bun, served atop the peanut butter burger (don’t ask, we haven’t tried it), the egg burger, or the double-patty Big Hub. They also offer pizza, fish tacos, calzones, soups and salads, and 25 beers on tap. Take the kids along for a meal, and they’ll get to pick a surprise from the Treasure Box — if they behave and mind their manners.
