Better Sleep Tips for Business Trips

Road warriors need sound sleep to be at their peak.

At the Hotel continued...

When booking a hotel, ask for a room away from the ballroom nightclub, bar, or restaurant. If you are not with your family try to stay away from others with babies or small kids. And, above all, make sure the alarm clock in the room isn't already set to go off when you don't want it to.

Some hotels are now promoting sleep-friendly amenities. The Hilton Hotel chain commissioned the Alertness Solutions study noted above to incorporate the findings into their offerings. The Westin offers its Heavenly Bed for a good night's rest. The Benjamin Hotel in New York is all about sleep, and Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts is launching its Sleep Advantage Program next month. These hotels might provide:

  • Designated quiet areas: These are rooms or whole floors that are explicitly reserved for customers who want a good night's sleep, and may have certain restrictions against children, loud music, parties, etc.
  • Quiet rooms: These rooms may be located well off the street, have double-paned windows, soundproofed non-squeaky doors, quiet air-conditioners, and the like.
  • Room amenities: These make a big difference and can include:
    • A great bed and bedding
    • Ear plugs and eye covers
    • Blackout curtains
    • Relaxing, sleep-promoting music
    • Night lights for safety and avoiding bright light if you get up at night
    • Bath amenities such as lavender aromatherapy, potpourri, soaps, and oils
    • Menu of pillows, from down to full-body and C-pillows
    • Wake-up calls
  • Spa facilities: They may include steam, sauna, aromatherapy, exercise equipment, and massage to help guests relax.
