Hotels Go to Extremes to Give Guests a Good Night’s Sleep

After years of focusing on every amenity under the sun ? from gemstone spa treatments to panda-themed rooms to underwater hotel restaurants ? the travel industry is getting back to basics.

The latest craze? Giving customers a good night’s sleep.

At the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek in Colorado, the hotel recently brought on a Sleep Ambassador to train employees on the art of a restful night’s sleep. The hotel offers a Sound Sleep TV Channel with music composed by a sleep expert, oxygen canisters to adjust to the altitude and slumber massages.

In Berlin, the Swisshotel uses light therapy, aroma therapy, nutritional supplements and a sound pillow as part of its deep sleep package.

Even airlines are getting in on the trend. Starting this summer, Delta Airlines will provide Westin Hotels’ famous Heavenly Bedding in BusinessElite cabins. Now if only we could figure out a way to sleep in coach.

Sixty percent of adults report having difficulty sleeping almost every night, according to the National Sleep Foundation and hotels. Now places where you actually pay money to sleep have finally taken notice.
