The brand new Hampton Suites hotel in Swansboro, NC opened in July of 2011 and Outdoor Illumination was there to light it up. The owners asked for a subtle approach to the lighting and Outdoor Illumination delivered. Most hotels use glaring, intense high voltage lighting but we went with a different approach. We used low voltage lighting which lowers monthly electric bills coupled with infra-red lamps which provided the necessary lumen output to reach up the four-story columns of the hotel. The finishing touch was put on the pool area by installing low voltage column lights around the pool. Instead of glaring lights, hotel guests enjoy basking in the soft glow of the lighting at night while taking in a night-time swim.
