most often refer to a type of behavior rather than any specific action. In general, noise complaints get filed if someone is making an obnoxious amount of noise that disturbs others. If you want some examples of the kind of behavior that would fall under this classification, here's what might get someone reported:

  2. Excessively loud music or television noise
  3. Vacuuming or maintenance at late hours
  4. Stomping or running around above you

How to File a Noise Complaint With a Hotel and Ask for Compensation by Yourself

You should generally try to resolve problems before they become official noise complaints by talking to the person or people making the noise. If that doesn't work, though, you might need to escalate things. Filing a noise complaint on your own isn't exactly difficult, but it does take time and might put you on bad terms with whoever is being reported. These are some of the reasons why letting DoNotPay handle the process for you can be such a relief.

That said, if you'd like to try reporting a noise complaint at a hotel on your own, you can try:

Contacting the Front DeskHave the front desk speak with the person making all the noise. Normally, having someone from the hotel management come up and talk to them will get them to knock it off.
Customer ServiceThisl can get you some kind of compensation for a bad stay after you've checked out. This applies to methods like direct phone calls, email, letters, social media messages, and other forms of communication. It's a good idea to mention what has been done to solve the issue already, or if nothing was done at all, as this can strengthen your case.

Why It is Hard Filing a Noise Complaint With a Hotel on Your Own

It can be difficult to file a noise complaint at your hotel depending on the circumstances. For one, if this is a big enough issue that it's led you here, then the management (the people who can most easily resolve the issue) likely doesn’t care too much. This poses an issue, as it's frequently difficult to get the police involved in a noise complaint situation inside of a hotel. Another problem is that, in some cases, filing a noise complaint against someone might make them want to retaliate against you in some way. While this isn't too big of an issue in the short term, if you're staying somewhere over a long period, it's not good to be warring with your neighbors. These are all good reasons to use DoNotPay, as we take on the hassle and responsibility that you'd otherwise be going at alone.
