Bellman Carts

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

OK it is not exactly a soundproofing issue (except when the wheels are squeaking :-) ). Nevertheless being that we so many hotel owners coming to our blog we like to share any new or interesting things that we find on the web.  Nothing new over here with Bellman carts except that this site allows you to customize your quiet luggage carts for hotels in a few simple steps. We think that is a nice feature, after all , luxury hotels pay attention to the smallest of details don’t they deserve to have their carts match their taste?

Comfort Suites Tout Soundproofing

Friday, March 4th, 2011

The Comfort Suites hotel in Miami, Florida is now adding soundproofing to its list of amenities. Considering it’s hot night-life and party atmosphere, any hotel in the area that can claim to have soundproof rooms should have a leg up over the competition.

We’ll give the hotel credit where it is due. It’s located in a gorgeous section of the city and caters to a wide variety of crowds, ranging from business travelers to families, and within close proximity to a number of universities and attractions.

We’re not paid to write a promotion for the hotel but we’re always happy to give a shout out to companies who have included soundproofing in their measures to make their sites better.

Soundproofing in the Trump Tower

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Did you know that the Trump Tower hotels in both Las Vegas and Chicago feature soundproofing on all of their hotel floors? This is incredible news for weary travelers tired of hearing their neighbors and those in the hotel restaurants making noises at all hours of the day.

Trump installed a series of noise abatement products. While we still think they should have used Green Glue noise proofing measures, we’re still glad to see some of the world’s leading hotel chains paying closer attention to the needs of their overnight guests!

Hotel Room Doors

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

One of the most annoying sound problems from staying at hotels is the sound coming from the hallways into the rooms through the doors adding to that is the fact that people want their privacy when staying in an upscale hotel and do not want to have to worry about being quiet due to people in the hallways. The first and simplest solution is the gap at the bottom of the door. Sound will just go right under. The solution is a heavy duty soundproof door bottom specifically designed for sound. These can be attached directly onto the door or mortised into the door so that it remains inconspicuous. Afterward the door itself needs to be given attention as to whether it is a worthy soundproof door or not.

Sound causes the Torquay to close

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Another Hotel bites the dust due to soundproofing woes. Rude Bar, below the former Queens Hotel on Victoria Parade, overlooking the town harbour, shut after Torbay Council issued a noise abatement notice. If noise was their only problem we think they could have solved it by soundproofing their walls and ceilings with a damping compound like Green Glue as described in this soundproofing walls article. However it looks like this one had a host of other problems to go along including flooding. As King Solomen says “There is a time for everything” and this might just be the right time to close it up and start something new elsewhere.

Hotel Soundproofing Woes

Monday, September 6th, 2010

As we have been noting sound and noise complaints are becoming a larger and larger issue. In Fort Lauderdale it is literally dividing the city in half, as residents are seeking to cut down the noise coming from hotels and bars. Residents complain that soundproofing their home is not always the answer as they would like to enjoy their balconies outdoors, after all isn’t that why they bought a house in Florida in the first place! We think that the answer is quite simple let the hotels be responsible to control the sound by doing Hotel Soundproofing with the proper soundproofing materials and then having city officials come and see if the soundproofing is up to par.

Reducing Hotel Noise Complaints

Noise complaints are amongst the most prevalent type of complaint in any hotel. Tenents simply don’t want to hear the noise coming from the lobby – or from the room next door – while they’re trying to relax.

They’re paying good money for their stay in your hotel and, as such, you need to find an answer to noise problems. You should, of course, be soundproofing your rooms.

We’re going to take some time to start telling you a bit more about soundproofing, techniques, and materials. Before you know it you’ll be able to create a master plan for fixing the noise problems in your hotel – large or small!
