I stayed at the hotel on Monday to get over my cold. Of course : I had to get a day with lots of activity out front in the street. Whole trees getting lifted up by a crane and put in by the enormous (but empty) apartment complex, AND a crew with jack hammers breaking up the pavement in front of the hotel. So that’s where you need these little memory foam earplugs. Granted, they take a little getting used to but they drown out the decibels from screaming babies, jack hammers and jet engines.
