So I am still not sure that this is true but apparently two Holiday Inn hotels in London are offering a bed warming service to combat the ‘cold’ weather. Instead of handing you a water bottle or electric blanket as you would think, they are offering up real live humans to lie in your bed for 5 minutes. These bed warmers apparently wear a one piece jumpsuit (yeah that makes it less weird) for hygienic reasons and probably to prevent you from thinking that the hotel is side lining as a brothel.
Now I hate getting into a cold bed as much as the next girl but not sure the hotel-arranged stranger in my bed thing is the answer. Do you talk to the person lying in your bed in a unitard? What do you say to them? Do you tip? Is it creepy to then jump into bed and cuddle into a stranger’s warm spot? I am leaning towards yes….valiant PR effort by Holiday Inn but I think I’ll stick to a shot from the mini bar – it has the same warming effect without the awkwardness.
