My friend and her husband recently returned from a “bleisure” stay (coupling work and leisure) at an iconic luxury hotel in Miami Beach. Always interested in hearing about other people’s travels, when we had lunch the next week, I asked about her experience at the property.
My friend didn’t mince words. Their stay was nothing short of a gross disappointment. Why, I asked? They were assigned to a room too close to the hotel nightclub. The pounding late night music was so disturbing that they didn’t get any sleep. They were happy to escape after two nights.
Her experience jogged some bad hotel memories of my own. Then I began asking other fellow travel bloggers about getting stuck in noisy hotels rooms. They generously shared their own tales of frustration.
Writing for FlightNetwork, I summarized some of the untoward experiences that I and other travelers have encountered in hotels. Having the bad luck to score a noisy hotel room is common but savvy travelers can take some steps to avoid getting those rooms or plot an escape from them.
