I had the same problem for a tuning customer of mine, at their hotel. Pianissimo, notes drop out; normal volume, too loud for the lobby. Solution: a nice thick quilt inside the case above the strings, lifted up by thin wood "ribs" so as to not touch the strings; then leave the piano lid down. Also, stuffing underneath to insolate too, like Mark suggests. In extreme case, even stuffing a felt mute strip in the strings to blank out one string per note, but that reduces harmonic richness, too, so only for last chance. Other option, play the radio, softly....;-)
