Oops - loss of journalistic objectivity

During an interview today, because I have to ask, someone assured me that his venue was entirely wheelchair-accessible.  "Completely," he said.
"So; there's no upstairs or downstairs that are hard to get to?"
"No, not at all.  Except the bridal suites, upstairs."
"Um, okay."  (pause) 
And then... I couldn't help it, I swear!  I breached the journalist "wall" of objectivity. 
Big mouth me:  "There are brides who use a wheelchair."
"Oh, in that case, we'd use a meeting room on the main floor."
Okay!  Fully accessible... check!
