To start your week off on a creepy unsettling note...
Several locations of the Holiday Inn in London are offering a free 'bed warming' service, where a staff member dressed in a fleece head-to-toe outfit that looks like a KKK snowsuit, will on request get into your bed and move around to generate heat and make the sheets less chilly. The hotel describes it as akin to having a really big hot water bottle in your bed.
This takes the idea of inviting a stranger into your hotel bed a whole lot less exciting. Then again, it is the Holiday Inn.
Sure, good intentions here, but what if the white-suited employee falls asleep in my bed? Or I get there early and we startle each other? Do they change clothes as they bed hop? Do they charge for this service?
This whole thing is just creepy. I would rather have the gigantic hot water bottle.
