Brain-eating music

Don't stay at Renaissance or JW Marriotts then. While I like them for their lounges (primarily overseas, not US domestic)....I absolutely hate the music played in the common areas. It eats into my brain. Sounds like a record that is stuck and not in a good spot. At some locations, I've asked if the music volume can be turned down or changed...it is so ear-crushing.

With regard to 'signature scents'....most of the upper end national chains incorporated these fragrances a number of years back. I'm not enamored of them either. I would prefer just a high-quality air filtration system and leave it at that. I did walk into one hotel recently that (I think) used a signature scent and it was quiet nice....just fresh, clean...like after a rain. Wish I could remember which hotel...maybe it was the Cinnamon Red in Colombo, Sri Lanka? *sigh* [Great stay there btw.]
