Hotel Soundproofing in New Orleans

As part of their updates and rehab the Pelham Hotel of New Orleans has addressed a long standing complaint of hotel stayers worldwide. The complaint of noise from the hallway coming into the rooms from the gaps at the perimeter of the door and the lack of privacy of the sound of the bedrooms going out into the hallways via the gaps around the doors. They accomplished this by installing automatic door bottoms to seal the gap at the bottom of the door and adjustable door gaskets to seal gaps at the jambs and headers of the doors. Good Job Pelham! Let’s hope other hotels continue this trend and pay more attention to the sound proofing of their doors, walls, floors and ceilings (and windows).
