The jokes on this just write themselves. And so will the lawsuits…

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.

The bed-warmer is equipped with a thermometer to measure the bed’s required temperature of 20 degrees Celsius (68 Fahrenheit).

Holiday Inn said the warmer would be fully dressed and leave the bed before the guest occupied it. They could not confirm if the warmer would shower first, but said hair would be covered.

    OK. Now I’m shocked

  2. RBG says:

    Now show a picture of susan boyle in her jammies.

    Why wouldn’t the hotel use an electric blanket to heat the sheets?


  3. bedrock says:

    Some day in the distant future , fancy hotels will have heated rooms. But for now we can only dream.

  4. yanikinwaoz says:

    And in other news. Today the Motel-6 in Branson Missouri has a bed warming service featuring an angry raccoon they trapped out by the pool this morning and threw in the linen dryer. Word of warning: Do NOT eat the “chocolate” on your pillow.

  5. Dirk Thundernuts says:

    I’m willing to provide this bed-wetting service.

    Bring a black light to check for stains on sheets, pillow cases, ceiling, etc.

  8. #7 – While a black light can detect a shart, it is useless against the random fart.

  9. bobbo, this doesn't sound credible at all says:

    Electric blanket or a hot water bottle service makes sense.

    I doubt anyone actually wants a “stranger” rolling around in their bed before their own occupancy. Models like the one shown?==sure. Minimum wage illegal slave bots that are forced to take such a dehumanizing “job”—not so much.

  10. WmDE says:

    By utilizing waste heat generated by employees to warm beds in apparently poorly heated rooms, Holiday Inn intends to rack up carbon credits.

  11. yanikinwaoz says:

    How warm are Dutch Ovens?

  12. miramax says:

    this is a job for people who wanna sleep on best beds all the time !
    you get that job and what you basically do is to sleep on best hotel beds !
    not a bad job imho

  13. Sleepy Smurf says:

    The best thing about getting into bed at night is that first moment when the sheets are still cool to the touch.

  14. Benjamin says:

    It does sound a bit wacky.

  15. Dr. DoLittle or not much anyway says:

    Can you express a sexual preference, I mean a bed warmed by two black homo’s having a tryst before you slide between the sheets, might please some and not others. Psychology is what they are selling is it not.

  16. Joe Doakes says:

    I thought that these are something known as hookers.

  17. John E. Quantum says:

    Finally, a real use for post menopausal womens hot flashes.

  18. Animby says:

    # 11 yanikinwaoz said,”How warm are Dutch Ovens?”

    Depends on how well you stoke her.

    Question: How much do they charge for this “service” and are you expected to tip the hooker… er … bed warmer? If so, what is the appropriate tip for letting someone take a nap in your bed?

  19. chris says:

    Just thinking about the practical aspect of this. They would have to be in the bed really close to when you got into it.

    Depending on the bed-warmer I might tip for magic fingers.

  20. soundwash says:

    ‘xcuse me? I’m with #13

    The best part about climbing into bed is the crisp feeling of a cool unslept inbed.

    sad to say, i bet #10 *might* be closer to the truth.. gaining carbon offsets from human “excess human heat”. -or it’s could be an escort service “hidden in place sight” -like so many
    other things. However, given the “spiritual” awakening that is effecting the solar system, i wonder if this has to do with leaving a residual energy field..

    study the occult, and (the real way things work) you’ll learn off all sorts of esoteric beliefs and science that would raise an eyebrow or two.

    -given that we are beings of energy at our core..i’m just saying..
