Hotel Acoustics

Did you know that the number one source of complaints in hotels worldwide is noise?

Poor acoustic design in hotels can do significant damage to brand reputation, ratings and customer satisfaction, not to mention the health and well-being of guests. No matter how ‘cheap & cheerful’ a hotel or B&B may claim to be, paying guests must always be afforded a restful nights sleep. It has been shown that noise levels inside a bedroom at night exceeding 30dB LAeq can be damaging to health. Careful planning of bedroom layouts tends to go a long way in avoiding noise problems. The design of walls and floors must consider noise transfer between adjacent spaces, the building envelope and glazing specification is also important.
