Joni shared, “We are proud to have the Sheraton Agoura Hills as a neighbor here at the International Disability Center, and I am humbled that they would choose to dedicate a suite in my name. The honor truly goes to the entire Joni and Friends staff who serve every day to help share the hope of the Gospel with those with disabilities and their families.” A unique feature of the Joni Eareckson Tada Suite at the Sheraton Agoura Hills is that Joni’s paintings grace the walls throughout the suite. A statement released by the hotel lauded the artwork, calling Joni  “a remarkably talented woman.” The statement continued: “The Sheraton Agoura Hills Hotel is proud to be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act by providing accessible suites for our guests with disabilities. We have dedicated this particular suite in honor of our friend and neighbor, Joni Eareckson Tada.”
