Quiet Hotel Rooms

I am generally a pretty light sleeper, although since I’ve been a dad I often simply pass out from exhaustion when I’m traveling. When I stay in hotels, I am often frustrated by the poor soundproofing of hotel rooms. I find this particularly aggravating with high-end hotels, where the hotel clearly spend a lot of money to make the room seem elegant/upscale, only to have my experience degraded when I can hear my neighbors’ TV or loud conversations. According to this recent NYT Times article, some hotels are now paying more attention to the soundproofing issues. I’m excited to see the results of this competitive endeavor!
