In my first conversation with them on the subject yesterday, I
was informed that the construction crew worked 8 to 4 or 8 to 5,
that I could expect the noise during that interval all week, and
that I had better get used to it because there was no
alternative.   The person I spoke with also told me that it was
ok because we were all in the meeting area all day anyway and
there was no construction there.   Fortunately for me, a short
time later the folks with the rotary hammer apparently managed
to break a pipe over the room, resulting in the room becoming
uninhabitable, and they had a cancellation, so they moved me.
But that clearly isn't a general solution.

People pay for these rooms for 24 hours,  not when the hotel
thinks they should be in them.   If the hotel wants to make them
uninhabitable for 8 or 9 hours of the day, the rates should go
down by at least 1/3, probably more.
