Ensuring that critical information for use is easily perceived

The tactile guide tiles on the floor of this hotel lobby guide people from the entry, as well as other areas of the hotel, to the reception area. A different type of tile is used to mark the location of the pathways and waiting areas. These tiles help people with visual impairments find their way in the lobby and avoid getting too close to the reception area. They also assist the sighted traveler and serve as an affordance to help everyone remember to stay back and await their turn.
