Hotel Guests are Sounding Off

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Despite the efforts many hotels have been making to soundproof their rooms, there are many more who have not yet taken the hint. Unfortunately, the guests at those hotels are speaking louder than the guests at the quiet hotels – and they’re not happy.

We’ve heard stories about guests awakened by parties in other rooms, garbage truck awakenings, vending machine woes, hobos, and much more. You’d think hotel management would pay more attention to this sort of complaint.

Soundproofing a hotel is easy. All these owners need to do is buy a few Green Glue 5 gallon buckets, buy some drywall, and hire a crew to help them with installation as each room turns over. The process should take no more than a few days per room and can be done cost effectively – without hiring outside help. We hope they take the hint soon.

Whistler Sound Troubles

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

We recently read an old forum post from a hotel owner in the Whistler area. The hotel had a night club situated in the building’s basement and visitors staying in the hotel were often bothered by the noises. It vibrated through the building into the rooms.

What this hotel owner really needed was a few Green Glue tubes, some new drywall, and a crew to help him with installation and painting. He could have quickly and easily revamped his hotel with no problem. We hope, 4 years after his initial post, he found the right solution.
