Hotel Soundproofing: It Matters to Your Business

However, before you lose a potential customer who reads a bad review about noise in your business, you can take steps to soundproof your rooms.

One of the most frequent complaints from hotel guests has nothing to do with towels or breakfast. Instead, they are upset about the noise from other guests and the sounds coming from outside. It interrupts their sleep, makes it difficult to make phone calls and prevents them from relaxing in their rooms. Noise can be enough to make them consider a different hotel, and it can force them to leave you a bad review.

If you are interested in keeping your guests happy, then you may want to soundproof your hotel. You can start by analyzing and assessing the current noise levels. There are sensors available on the market that measure noise levels. Then, you can focus on areas that need to be improved. For example, you may need better insulation in your walls or ceilings. You may also need to seal windows and doors to reduce noise and drafts.

You may want to consider adding acoustic doors that allow guests to cover their doors with panels, so the noise outside is diminished. Another option is to make your own quiet zone at specific times of the night. This means that hotel staff and guests are discouraged from walking around and making noise late at night. Staff members have to finish work by a certain hour, so guests can sleep in peace. In addition, you can find beds with special headboards that can help cut down on noise.

Soundproofing a hotel is possible, and your guests will notice a difference. You can take several different steps to accomplish this, but the most important factor is to consider your customers along the way. They will appreciate a quiet room that lets them relax and sleep. They are also more likely to return to your hotel and recommend it to others.
