Holiday Inn Offers Human Bed Warmers: Staff Wear Hygenic Sleepers
The Holiday Inn hotel chain is now offering bed warming services at three of their hotels in Britain.
If requested, you can have a staff member slip between your sheets and warm your bed just before you retire. They'll wear an all-in-one hygienic fleece sleeper suit and slip out of your bed before you hop in.
"The new Holiday Inn bed warmers service is a bit like having a giant hot water bottle in your bed," Holiday Inn spokeswoman Jane Bednall said in an e-mailed statement.
Holiday Inn is promoting this new service on a trial basis with the help of sleep expert Chris Idzikowski, of Edinburgh Sleep Center.
"There's plenty of scientific evidence to show that sleep starts at the beginning of the night when body temperature starts to drop," he said. "A warm bed — approximately 20 to 24 Celsius — is a good way to start this process whereas a cold bed would inhibit sleep."
How's that for the "human touch?"
