Some hotels are starting to offer special rooms for the vertically non-challenged (which can be quite challenging at times). The Hotel Monaco Group has been offering tall guest rooms with higher ceilings, raised showerheads and extended beds at no extra charge. In the future they plan to add, among other things, longer bathrobes.
Unfortunately, in my experience, the airlines do not seem to be as caring for the needs of the tall traveler. Continental seems to be one of the worst offenders. This domestic airline seat pitch chart confirms my suspicions, Continental ranks at the bottom with Aeromexico and others. So, if you’re tall and want to retain feeling in your legs after a flight, try flying American or jetBlue. Song doesn’t seem so bad either.
