Not only Hyatt but other Hotels too.

What is it about hotel rooms and dim lighting? I’ve noticed countless times now that even if I turn on every light in the hotel room, the room is still not lit enough. The common theme seems to be that there is no central light in the middle of the room. Why is that? Hotel design?

Yes, too many designers watched far too many episodes of The West Wing, nothing but desk lamps and not a ceiling light to be found.

Not only that, but you need to be a nuclear physicist to be able to operate the light switches. It's not unusual to have a room with 20-30 different light switches.

It's designed to save money on maintenance since the staff don't need a ladder to replace the light bulb. Trends are changing now with LED lightbulbs that last 10+ years on a single bulb.

It’s also a US thing. Not uncommon for houses to have wall outlets in a bedroom wired to the light switch but no ceiling light.

I personally like it like that. As long as the desk is lit enough to work at. Better that than feeling like a CBD 7Eleven or operating theatre.

Sometimes I need it to be like an operating theatre, I’d like to at least have that option instead of perpetual dimness 😆
