UK Holiday Inn Offers Human Bed-Warming Service

By Robert Paul Reyes


"International hotel chain Holiday Inn is offering a trial human bed-warming service at three hotels in Britain this month.

If requested, a willing staff-member at two of the chain`s London hotels and one in the northern English city of Manchester will dress in an all-in-one fleece sleeper suit before slipping between the sheets.

`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 emailed statement to Reuters." Reuters

I would prefer a giant hot water bottle in my hotel bed, rather than have a stranger warm my bed. The hotel staff member may warm the bed, but how many germs will he/she leave behind?

The idea may catch on if the bed warmers are attractive young women, but with my luck it would be an old fat guy with a flatulence problem who warms my bed.

Most people drool when they sleep, the human bed warmers should be forced to drink Red Bull so they won`t fall asleep on the job.

If the bed warmer is really hot, I would pay extra if she stayed in my bed all night. A hot young thing sleeping in my bed beats the hell out of a mint on the pillow.

I applaud Holiday Inn for thinking outside the box, in these frigid winter nights nobody wants to sleep on a cold bed.
