Typically, your renter's policy will not cover your hotel due to your air conditioner being out. A broken AC is not considered the loss of use of the dwelling (home) — they typically only pay for other accommodations when the entire dwelling is uninhabitable. See here what renters insurance covers. Every company is different so it doesn't hurt to call your insurance company and ask a claims adjuster how your medical issues may affect your policy. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
