Residence Inn by Marriott
Ann Arbor, MI

Soundscape Engineering is pleased to have been part of the design team for the first new downtown Ann Arbor hotel in several decades, the Residence Inn by Marriott. The developer, First Martin Corporation, required that an acoustics consultant be hired for analysis and compliance with Marriott's extensive acoustical specifications for their properties.
We provided the sound isolation design for guest room, meeting room, lobby, fitness center and retail adjacencies, and for spaces below rooftop mechanical equipment. Mitigation of mechanical equipment noise to the neighboring building with residences occupying the top floors was also carefully controlled. We designed the room acoustics in the lobby, pool and meeting rooms for reverberation and background sound control, so that occupants would feel comfortable in the spaces and be able to communicate with ease.
The hotel is a six story building with 110 guest rooms, a large main lobby, four meeting rooms with a pre-function space, and a fitness room. The hotel has been getting good reviews, including one on that stated despite being on a main road, the room was quiet."
