Holiday Inn Offers Human Bed Warmers in UK

Holiday Inn Offers Human Bed Warmers in UK

Everyone loves a warm bed. And now at the Holiday Inn in London and Edinburgh, guests won't have to warm it up themselves. The hotel is offering a free service where a real, live stranger will come and lie in your bed for five minutes, warming it up to a toasty 68-72°F. What could possibly go wrong!

Comparing it to a "giant water bottle in your bed," Holiday Inn's spokesperson Jane Bednall said the service lasts only through the end of January as the hotel gauges interest, which I predict will be somewhere between no and lawsuit. No word on if you're expected to tip!

Sounds like a joke, especially coming from a hotel chain. That's really unsanitary, there's a reason why the sheets are changed

No thank you. After the clean sheets are put on I don't want you on my bed. You don't know what that stranger has crawling on them or what rashes.

I can't imagine it would be cheaper to hire a human than to purchase a bunch of heaters/electric blankets. WEIRD.

What the--I live in the UK, and I ain't never heard of this garbage. It's probably just a ploy to get people talking about Holiday Inn. And the fact that British promotional directors have some pretty f'ed up ideas.

Ew... Just the other day my fiance and I took my dad bowling. When I slipped into my rented bowling shoes.. they were already warm... yuck. It's one thing if an electric blanket warms up my bed, it's another thing if it's someone else's perspiration and body temp that warms it up. I vote no.
