Got the 78" level out, from edge of landing to middle of the opposing door jam is 5ft, the floor is out 1 1/8" in this span. Two feet down the hall the slope is 7/8" off in 5 ft.
4 more ft down the hallway the slope is 3/8" out in span of 3.5 ft, it gets a little better as I measure further down the hallway. Wondering if that landing subfloor is high due to the riser being high on that last step or something else?

So perhaps we split it so the slope is only 5/8" out, I figure at about half of what it currently is it won't be so visable. I think we could do that as the Garrison engineered floors are 9/16" high, and Carpet is going into the bedrooms.

What if I used a leveling compound or 3/8" plywood screwed to the subfloor to make up most of the low area and then use leveling compound or something like that to float from the edge of the 3/8" material to the subfloor? I guess we could use roofing felt or similar in the opposing bedroom entry to at least smooth the transition out?

I really don't want to go back to carpet for another 20+ years in the hall.

Thanks again for the help.
I really wish I had an easy answer to help you out but I don't, I am not sure the leveling compound will work on plywood decking. I suggest you make a new thread in the flooring forum and see what the pros have to suggest. I am sorry.
