    white noise directed toward the hotel
 would help, depending the level needed and on whether they prefer it over music.
probably would get "air noise" complaints..............oh well

Don't be silly.

There is always di-pole speakers (driver mounted on an open baffle) which will have a null along the plane of the baffle. Inefficient but excellent at cancellations along the plane.

Another option would be get the sound source as close to the audience as possible, as in right on the table:

The bose devices actually sound pretty good for what they are.

I'm with Dick on this one.
You need to talk to the hotel people and find out exactly what, and when, the problem is and try to come up with a suitable compromise.
Sometimes just showing you are willing to address the issue can go a long way to smoothing over the problem.

Pulsing, rhythmic sound such as music will be perceived as "loud" simply because the nature of the rhythm attracts the ear, EVEN AT AN AVERAGE SPL MUCH LESS THAN WHITE NOISE.

Not suggesting this as a solution, but when I was in a loud garage band practicing in a small town, we got all kinds of noise complaints until we ran a lawnmower in the backyard while we practiced. I also made a recording of a clothes dryer running and looped it on a 90 minute cassette tape played a boom box outside of the our kid's rooms when they were babies. That way they wouldn't wake up every time there were any noises in the house or a truck backfired in the street. Masking noise can be your friend.

One way to emulate a "whiter", more diffuse sound would be speakers at the individual tables a la the diner booth juke boxes of the 1950's.  This would require no amps on stage and E-drums, though.

A more likely solution would be down-firing speakers on an overhead grid system, but still the no amps, E-drums policy.
