Planning the typical guest-room floor presents one of the greatest challenges in hotel design. Because guest rooms and suites generally represent between 65 and 85 percent of the total floor area in a hotel or resort, any savings in the planning of a given floor arrangmenr (or grouping of rooms) is multiplied many times. Therefore, a major planning goal in every lodging project should be to maximize the amount of salable guest-room space and keep to a minimum the vertical core, horizontal circulation, and necessary support areas.

General Plannig ;

General: Provide Guestrooms and Suites to convey a “residential” character with complementary appointments and architectural amenities. The designs are intended to provide distinct relaxing, sleeping, grooming, refreshment and working zones. Provide excellent sound attenuation to ensure guest privacy.

2. Location: Separate from public spaces; minimize walking distances to elevators.
