Hotel lobbies will range from modest, functional spaces to elaborate, make-a-statement spaces designed to impress. The functional lobby will likely have either fluorescent ceiling fixtures or recessed downlights designed to provide diffuse, even illumination throughout the space and check-in counter. Higher end lobbies usually have a combination of accent lighting, small aperture recessed downlights, wall sconces and decorative pendants or chandeliers. Topbulb offers replacement bulbs for all of these fixture types including direct replacement LED options for customers wanting to upgrade to higher efficiency and longer life light sources.
Hotel hallways usually feature decorative ceiling surface mount fixtures or wall sconces to provide enough illumination for both easy navigation to a room and a sense of security when in the hallway. CFL and halogen bulbs are the most likely replacements for these types of fixtures. Topbulb also has many LED options that produce equivalent light and use the same base types for direct replacement.
Hotel room lighting will usually consist of a ceiling mounted decorative or functional fixture just inside the room entry door with the remaining room illumination coming from table and floor lamps. Traditionally, hotels have relied on incandescent light bulbs for table and floor lamps as well as decorative fixtures, but many started using CFLs years ago to reduce energy costs. With common incandescent wattages now being phased out, CFL remains a good option, while LED deserves consideration for additional reduction in operating costs. Bathrooms often have fluorescent ceiling or vanity lighting in more modest hotels and downlights and decorative vanity fixtures in higher end lodging. Where tub and shower are separate units, the shower may have a shower-rated recessed ceiling light on a dedicated switch.
Hotels with conference facilities will have sizeable rooms for presentations usually employing a combination recessed downlights and decorative pendants. Dimming control is a key requirement for conference rooms so easily dimmed light sources such as halogen, dimmable CFL and now LED are the rule. Fluorescent cove lighting may also be used to provide ambient light throughout the space, but most often it is in conjunction with halogen downlights. When room lighting needs to be lowered, the cove lights can be switched off and the downlights dimmed.
Lobby and Conference Restrooms
Because of intermittent use, hotel lobby and conference area restrooms provide an excellent opportunity to utilize occupancy control for energy cost savings. Installed as a direct replacement for existing wall switches or in ceilings for larger restrooms, the sensors turn lights on when someone enters and turns lights off after a pre-set time has passed.
Elevator lighting is covered in the National Electrical Code. This code includes requirements for elevator car lighting, elevator machine room and the elevator pit. Topbulb offers common elevator car lamp replacements, plus new LED versions of the traditional incandescent and halogen elevator bulbs.
