    Abstract

    The impact of lighting on the comfort of a hotel room perceived by the user is a crucial issue. In general, scientific literature has shown that the perception of lighting quality depends on its parameters, the context in which lighting is perceived, and the users who are reacting to the environment. This study measures the relationship between the activity experienced in a hotel room and the user’s preferences regarding a luminous environment. A real hotel room has been altered for this project, 177 recruited customers in a hotel *** (France) expressed their preference among 4 lighting conditions in 3 different activities undertaken. This study highlights different assessments in terms of lighting, depending on the specific activity. These results may be taken into account by architects, lighting designers, and hotel managers to redesign new hotel rooms in order to improve the users’ comfort during their stay.
