Experience A better guest experience It is often said that to survive, a hotel brand must do more than meet guest expectations. It must exceed them. Imagine differentiating from competitors with cost-effective light control. At Lutron, our goal is to provide the most appropriate light control solutions for any hotel property. We can outfit single guestrooms or entire resorts, new construction or renovation.

“One of the most outstanding elements that distinguishes us from our competitors is the Lutron lighting system that allows us to create different moods to offer the greatest comfort to our customers.”

Using Lutron lighting control throughout a hotel facility can do more than any other single technology to advance a green campaign – all while improving the guest experience.

Preset lighting control in lobbies and public spaces creates precisely the right light environment while saving energy.
