The basic acoustic requirements for a hotel vary due to location and the arrangement of internal facilities but fundamentally depend upon the comfort standard that the operator wishes to market.
The major part of a hotel is devoted to guest bedrooms and apartments and noise from activities in the back-of-house area must not be audible or disruptive. Planning of the hotel at an early stage is
essential to limit the interaction of occupational noise such as kitchens, mechanical services noise such as lifts, recreation noise such as bars, function rooms, gymnasiums etc.
