The Code4Lib community aims to make the conference accessible for attendees of all abilities. The DoubleTree has a length list of accessible services on its Amenities & Services page including accessible rooms, restaurants, parking, and routes throughout the hotel campus.
When registering, attendees were asked to include any accessibility needs they might require. We are doing our best to meet these needs. Everyone is encouraged to contact the accessibility committee if they have questions or new accommodation needs arise. The accessibility committee may be contacted by:

The Newcomer Dinner is an opportunity for veterans of the code4lib conference to meet and welcome first-timers. Attendees sign up to join others for dinner the night before the main sessions of conference begin. See information about the dinner and the sign-up list here. Attendees are responsible in assessing the accessibility of the restaurant space of their choice.
Attendees must arrange for their own transportation to the restaurants.
Most of them are within a half mile walking distance from the nearest public transportation stop. To get a sense of the locations and neighborhoods, you can check out the Activities Map.
For restaurants that are not close to the public transportation stops, we recommend carpooling with a local, calling a taxi, or using a ride share service. Here are some public transit options for the various neighborhoods noted in the restaurant list.
