Hotels Embrace Sleep Tech
As explored in Sleep Tech, sleep has become a luxury for many 'always on' consumers. Tapping into this trend, hotels are creating rooms and spaces that promote rest and relaxation.
Global hotel chain Westin now offers wearable sleep monitors, silent alarm clocks and personal sleep coaches at certain properties. The wearables are designed to help guests track and improve their sleep patterns and are offered as part of the hotel's Heavenly Bed programme.
Similarly, The Crowne Plaza in Edinburgh, Scotland, has created a designated Quiet Zone featuring eight double bedrooms that have been adapted for the perfect night's sleep. The rooms feature soundproof windows, no housekeeping between 9pm and 10am, aromatherapy kits and luxury bedding.
