I usually use my room between meetings to finish up on slides, read e-mail,
and unwind.  Plus, my wife is flying in later this week for a "vacation"

I was told by the front desk, in a not-very-polite manner, that the hotel
was full, I could not move, and there was nothing they could do about the
noise.
