You stay in a hotel and you are ready to go to bed, but a noisy row or party in the room next door disturbs you? Yes, it happens. Not all hotels will be as serene as Auberge Le Pomerol Montréal. However, here’s what you can do about it.
You have booked a beautiful hotel room, but the people in the next room are making too much noise for you to rest. What to do? This is an uncomfortable situation to live. Initially, most people convince themselves to try ignore the noise. But eventually, your patience has its limits. Here are some steps you can take to get some rest and relaxation.
#1: Call the reception
What are you doing to deal with all this noise? Call the reception.
Simply dial the extension shown on the phone or in the directory available in your room, or dial “0”. Once you have reached the reception, explain the situation. Depending on the hotel’s policy, they can simply put a call through to the room next door and simply warn them about the noise, or send an employee to deliver the message in person. Sometimes this is all you need to calm the rowdy room so take the shot.
#2: Search for security personnel
If the source of noise comes from a common place in the hotel, such as the pool, or parking, a call to the front desk might not be appropriate. On the one hand, the source of the noise may not even come from a hotel guest. You can check the directory in your room to contact security or call reception and ask them to redirect your security call. These are trained professionals to deal with situations that involve intruders or disrespectful guests.
#3: Call the local police
If the noise from a hotel room on your floor is staggering and you have called the front desk, security, knocked on the door and the noise still does not stop, it may be time to call the police.
Does the noise seem to be the product of violence, or criminal activity such as theft? If so, do not hesitate to call the police. If the source of the noise is related to a crime, the police officers are best equipped to handle this situation. Stay in your room unless the police tell you to do otherwise.
