This Design Guide focuses on key areas in hotels and provides recommendations for the technologies and application designs available at the time it was written. Hotel classifications may be generally grouped into six main categories in which facilities share similar lodging strategies, based on type, quality, price point, and service levels (listed below). This classification helps guide the execution or design of the entire facility. These categories by no means represent the entire market, but are included for representative purposes only. The Design Guide focuses on general design criteria; it is the responsibility of the individual designer working with the client to choose the appropriate technique for a specific market segment.
For consistency, each section of DG-25-12 follows a standard format. (In addition all applicable codes, such as the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) described in Annex F and energy and outdoor codes in Annexes E and G should be closely followed.)
