No, I'm not familiar with hotel vacs specifically. However during one of my
"financially challenging" times (c. 1984) I did have a 2nd job as an evening
janitor. I helped clean a bank and a grocery store while most folks were
piling up z's. ("See that toilet? I'll bet the bank VP took a dump there
today.") At that time there seemed to be just three differences between our
commercial Kirby vacs and the Kirby vacs my mother and mother-in-law had.
1. (Perhaps) More suction.
2. A much longer cord.
3. A higher quality bag, a bag that did not require an internal paper
bag. We emptied these commercial Kirbys by removing the bag and shaking it
in the dumpster.
It didn't seem to be any quieter...
