Holiday Inn Employees Will Climb Into Your Bed To Warm It Up

Sky News - Holiday Inn, operator of over 4,000 hotels worldwide, will begin to offer a free five-minute “human bed warming service” at it’s London Kensington hotel throughout next week.

If requested, a willing member of hotel staff will jump in your bed, dressed head to foot in an all-in-one sleeper suit, until your nightly chamber warms up. ”Like having a giant hot water bottle in your bed” is how Holiday Inn spokeswoman Jane Bednall described the idea.

Bed Warmers Jacqui Barry and Nick Woods (pictured) helped to beat the big freeze for Laurence Lancashire, centre, at the Holiday Inn Kingston-South in Surbiton, Surrey.

Dr Chris Idzikowski, director of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre, said the idea could help people get off to sleep. He said: “There’s plenty of scientific evidence to show that sleep starts at the beginning of the night when body temperature starts to drop.

Is it just me or does this sound like a sexual harrassment/rape lawsuit waiting to happen? You know the only people that would use this service are complete creeps. What normal person would want a stranger to roll around in their sheets before climbing in? These hotels will apparently do anything just to claim a competitive advantage. Next thing you know they will be chewing my continental breakfast for me.
