These lawsuits are different than the wave of lawsuits and demand letters sent to so many hotels and other places of public accommodation the last few years alleging that those companies failed to make their websites accessible for users with visual, hearing and physical impairments by not adhering to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

June 6, 2018 via USA Today

Researcher eMarketer has lowered its estimates on the hotel alternative service, saying it will serve 5 million fewer guests than originally forecast in the U.S. this year. Growth, per eMarketer, is being hurt by competition and concern by guests over safety and security.

Airbnb, in a statement, said the report is "wrong," and "simply does not reflect the strong growth we continue to see in the United States and around the world."
