I'm frequently in and out of hotels because I travel a lot.. Most people don't think about others being around them. It doesn't really bother me much, unless I can clearly hear them.

I don't because you never know what they are doing, and it could get awkward pretty quickly.

Depends on how loud people are being. I do realize hotel room walls are thin so you can't reasonably expect total silence. But if someone is being really rowdy, yes, I will call the front desk and report it! One time I remember staying at a hotel and some people were running up and down the halls at like midnight randomly banging on doors, running to the end of the hallway, and repeating the process, so yeah, that was excessive noise.

I apologize, this is in reply to catsinjax but it won't accept the comment. Most of the noise I've heard in hotels is actually arguing. So that's not people having fun! And most hotels have rooms soundproofed enough so that if a party is in a room, it's not too intrusive. But if it does intrude, hey, I'm paying for a hotel room. I am not being a premature old fart if I expect to delight in the luxury of a peaceful, comfortable hotel stay when that's what I'm shelling out the bucks for. If people want to party, do it in a suite where you're not traipsing up and down the hallways caterwauling all night, or better yet, at someone's home or other venue. A hotel is by design where people are looking for a place to stay and SLEEP away from home. Maybe some people have gone there for the specific reason of escaping noise. They shouldn't be forced to compromise their stay because some people can't party in their own room or at a reasonable

I agree with your point also. I have stayed in some pretty high end hotels and wanted peace and quiet. It does really depend on the type of noise. I did call the desk when I heard a very abusive fight going on next door. It was quite clear the man was being very violet towards the woman. I suggested the desk also call the police on this one also. Thank God they did. The cops showed up, with the hotel manager, and they opened the door, when the man refused to do so, and found the woman badly beaten. They arrested him immediately and took the woman to the local hospital by ambulance. So, Bluela, I agree with your point also. There are always times where intersession is a must.

I would think that it depends on what kind of noise. If it's a baby, there's not much anyone can do. If it's two people arguing or listening to loud music, I would complain.

In today's world, safest to ignore. Sad, but true. Call the desk if too terrible. Don't confront them. Safety first!

There are some exceptions to the rule. The most common exceptions are babies and the brutal ritual of making babies/plus or minus. Although for the latter, home is cleaner.

I once had a couple in the next room having a heck of a lot of fun. The next morning left a message "Thanks for the show. Hope you had as much fun as I did listening, have a great day."

I'm thankful that I've never had this problem. If I did, I would just call the front desk and let an employee handle the situation. I hate confrontations.

Not people, but we did once stay in a hotel where they did construction right next door all through the middle of the night. Every time the truck backed up, it beeped really loud. The hotel moved us to another room.

Luckly I never had this problem, but if I did and it was real late and real loud then I would call the front desk to get them to take care of the problem

I said call the front desk, because if I'm going to do something, that's what it will be, but it's rare that it's noisy enough to warrant that. I think once when there were kids partying all through the hallways, we did that. I mean, I enjoy a party myself, but when you're in a hotel, you have to at least keep it in the rooms after midnight. Unless you're in Vegas or something. Generally if it's just a short argument or romantic et cetera, it's brief enough or non-intrusive enough not to bother.

I stayed in a very nice upscale place not long ago and the back of the hotel (where our room was) faced a park and connecting parking lot. The teens were having their fun on a Friday night and when it got out of hand around 11 pm I called the front desk and asked what they could do to help us with this situation. They called the police because this was not the first time they had had this problem and the local curfew was 11 pm anyways. We didn't have that problem again and we were there for the next weekend as well.

Depends on how loud it is, how long it goes on before I can't handle it any longer and how long I'm staying in a room. If I'm a quick turnaround to leaving; then I call the front desk, if it's past 10pm; then I call the front desk and if it's so loud that the TV being loud doesn't help; I call the front desk. Otherwise, they have paid for their room too and who's to say that the noise isn't being created by a half deaf old man just enjoying his nightly Wheel of Fortune!!!

It depends on what kind of noise.
If they're banging, I just turn up the tv, and put on a radio.
Not annoyingly loud however.

Early this year when I was staying at a hotel, I heard a couple on the room above us rocking the bed, doing something naughty but it only lasted all of 10 seconds. HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Are you sure it wasn't two little kids having a pillow fight that their mother quickly interrupted? Because that gives the bed quite a rock, too!

I pay good money for the places I stay, not cheap. I will put up with noise for awhile, if it messes with my sleep the front desk will here from me. If that does not fix things, I will go a step further.
