Expansive hotel lobbies can be often be very noisy when there’s a crowd, and individual voices are overly amplified if there is no background noise. In a hotel lobby, there is a need to maintain privacy and confidentiality at the check-in desk, as well as the expectation of quiet conversations in other areas. It is vital to control ambient noise levels and create a warm, welcoming vibe.
Proper sound control not only reduces unwanted sound transmission, but also improves sound quality. It should not be an afterthought, and modern sound control can be aesthetically pleasing as well. A pleasant hotel guest experience relies heavily on you, the designer or architect, to incorporate acoustic planning into your early design discussions. If you don’t have the requisite knowledge yourself, work with a specialty consultant such as those in Primacoustics.
