    Parking requirements for a hotel and accessory uses

    Okay- I tried searching past forums but got overwhelmed.. so i'm asking:

    I'm working with a vague code (imagine that!) and am thinking of how to calculate parking for a hotel. Re: the hotel restaurant and bar- do other places separate out the kitchen/prep area from the dining space? Or do you lump it all together?

    What about the front desk? Employee parking for those folks? or leave it out of the calculations because its just support space for the guests?

    thanks!

    6 spaces per each 5 rooms, period. If a restaurant/lounge are designed and advertised as open to the general public, then they are considered a separate principal use.

    From my fair city zc:

    Hotels and motels (exclusive of retail uses) - one parking space for each rental dwelling unit,
    plus one space for each five employees of the largest working shift.

    Restaurants - one parking space for each three customer seats.
    Nightclub, bar, tavern, and similar uses - one space for each two customer seats.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    In my previous life, we considered lobbies as common space (ie hallways) and not to be calculated in parking requirements, unless the lobby is clearly designed to also act as a reception room.

    I agree with mike gurnee calculate each use separately and add together.

    Hotels/motels = one speace per guest accommodation, plus one for each employee at normal maximum shift (and this makes no sense to me since at the normal maximum shift, which is in the early afternoon after all the guests have checked out, you don't need seperate parking for the employees. And most of them walk or carpool anyway).

    Restaurants = one space per each three seats, plus one for each employee at normal maximum shift.

    Lobbies, halls, kitchens, storage, in fact all forms of square footage, are irrelevant, except for meeting rooms, which have their own standard.

    Add'em all and that's the standard.
