Why Should Hotel Lighting Be A Top Priority?

When you are looking to check into one of the best hotels around,  relaxation in a nice atmosphere is likely  high on your list of expectations. While comfort is a priority, so is a sense of security. We live in a time that is full and rich in different technology aspects. There are many facilities that enable access to wireless networks, and this has really become something that is expected. Many hotels want to add something that creates an even better experience for the guests while improving the building’s efficiency.


Hotel lighting is one of those considerations that can improve the efficiency, functionality, and much more of the hotel building. Lighting can determine how well the atmosphere in a certain space is. Lighting can also impact the security and safety of the building. A hotel goes through an extensive amount of hours of operation. There is heavy foot traffic throughout the hotel, as well as heavy consumption of energy. Choosing the best type of lighting that provides sufficient illumination is a key to setting the right mood in your building.

Hotel lighting can add extra fun energy, a soothing environment, and can change the way people interact with each other. Guests will be able to feel more at home although they are in a hotel. If the guests are moving around constantly, exercising in the gym, or socializing with other hotel guests, the lights can make all of those interactions better.

The hotel industry is probably one of the biggest industries that use energy, so it can be a big industry for saving on energy costs. Guests do not only want a relaxing room during their stay, they want top notch rest and relaxation. The lighting in certain relaxing areas should meet certain expectations for the guess. Hotels are meant to accommodate and serve all of their guests so they can feel at home while they are away on business or just enjoying a nice getaway.


Outdated Hotel Lighting May Be Costing You More Than You Realize

hotel lightingAre you currently managing a full-service hotel that was designed during the 1970s or 1980s? If so, there is a good chance that the property’s lighting is costing you far more than you realize. Here’s why:
According to Center for Responsible Travel figures, foreign and domestic travelers alike are actively seeking out hotels that pay more than just lip service to environmental issues. Thus, having energy inefficient lighting running all throughout your establishment could be killing your chances of attracting those consumers. Considering that they are believed to collectively spend over $400 billion annually on travel, that’s a big deal.

In addition, outdated hotel lighting has a tendency to drive up operating costs in several ways. For starters, traditional lighting uses 4-5x more electricity than its modern counterparts. Many of the older model bulbs also tend to have a short life span and require special disposal methods. Therefore, your hotel’s utility, labor and inventory costs are likely to be much higher than facilities with modern lighting. Calculating your monthly lighting expense is easy and should include materials (lamps), labor, disposal costs and downtime. If you have never done this, it can be a real eye-opener.

Talking Stick Resort Arena Poker Room Goes Green with Relumination LED Lighting Upgrade

Poker Room LED LightingRelumination is proud to announce the completion of the Arena Poker Room at Talking Stick Resort. Partnering with Talking Stick Resort we worked to reduce lighting related energy consumption by 80%, saving over 11,500 kWh of electricity annually. From an environmental impact that is a reduction of almost 19,000 pounds of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) saved from polluting the environment each year.

In addition to electricity savings, Talking Stick Resort will also save money through reduced maintenance and facility downtime. The lighting has also been improved and there is less heat being generated for the HVAC system to offset.

If you are in the Scottsdale area be sure to stop in and check out the lighting in the Arena Poker Room. We think you will be impressed.
