That’s one of the first questions Mike Keeler asked when he took over as general manager at the Wilmington hotel nine months ago.
“It’s a legitimate question,” Keeler said. “This was done during a renovation. Apparently the sign was too big to put on the wall, and somebody in their wisdom thought the sign should be put above the two doors.”
There is a Braille sign properly placed at eye level next to the meeting room entrance, Keeler said.
“It’s funny if you look at the sign, you think, ‘Who could reach up there?’” he said. “The signs originally were supposed to go lower, so they were created with the Braille on it to be touched. Rather than simply throw the sign away they put it on top of the meeting room (doors).”
