210.60 Guest Rooms, Guest Suites, Dormitories, and
(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?
