Welcome to the very first autism friendly hotel in North America!
The initiative started when an organization, Autism Involves Me, was formed in 2013. Their goal was to bring awareness and understanding of autism to the community.
The employees of Hotel Port aux Basques are very excited to support the Autism Community. The hotel now has rooms that have been adapted with additional safety and security features. A slideshow was developed so families can familiarize themselves with the hotel before they arrive. Our dining room has picture menus for ease at meal time, along with quiet spaces to eat if needed. We are very proud of our sensory room (pictured above) which is located on the lower level of our hotel. This room has been a life saver to families who are travelling or just need a calming space. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Enjoy your visit!
