210.60 Guest Rooms, Guest Suites, Dormitories, and

Similar Occupancies.

 

(A) General. Guest rooms or guest suites in hotels, motels,

sleeping rooms in dormitories, and similar occupancies shall

have receptacle outlets installed in accordance with 210.52(A)

and (D). Guest rooms or guest suites provided with permanent

provisions for cooking shall have receptacle outlets installed in

accordance with all of the applicable rules in 210.52.

 

(B) Receptacle Placement. In applying the provisions of

210.52(A), the total number of receptacle outlets shall not

be less than the minimum number that would comply with

the provisions of that section. These receptacle outlets shall

be permitted to be located conveniently for permanent furniture

layout. At least two receptacle outlets shall be readily

accessible. Where receptacles are installed behind the bed,

the receptacle shall be located to prevent the bed from

contacting any attachment plug that may be installed or the

receptacle shall be provided with a suitable guard.

 

For the sake of my question assume that a hotel HAS permanent provisions for cooking. 

Do the receptacles have to be spaced apart, just like a dwelling (6-feet from any opening and 12-feet thereafter)?

 

I say no (see B).

Others say yes, because the last sentence in (A) says "...all of the applicable rules in 210.52."

 

WHAT SAY YE?
