At Red Carnation Hotels, we know the importance of a good night’s sleep. Not only does sleep improve wellbeing, it also enhances a guest’s experience of a destination. This is why the luxurious suites at Hotel 41 proudly use Savoir Beds, which since 1905 have been the favourite of stars like Fred Astaire and Frank Sinatra. These sumptuous tailor-made beds are artfully crafted to ensure each guest has a comfortable stay. To show what a difference this can make, we take a look at how getting a sound night’s sleep can improve your time away.
Sleep Improves Concentration and Productivity
Frequent business travellers will undoubtedly be able to relate to the importance of a good night’s sleep between catching flights, attending meetings and also taking the chance to get to know the destination they’re in a little better. Sleeping soundly the night before a busy day boosts productivity to leave the best impression when it matters most.
Sleep Boosts Energy and Fitness
Whether a trip is for business or pleasure, travel can consume a lot of energy. And who wants to miss out on the experiences there for the taking because they didn’t quite get enough sleep. Make the most of your time away, from a leisurely breakfast at first light to seeing the city after dark.
Sleep Makes You Happier
Maximise your travel experience by boosting how happy you feel; it’s a known fact that getting more sleep translates to having a more positive outlook. As you hop between famous landmarks, browse the local markets and delve into the eating and drinking scene, you know you’ll be seeing it in the very best light.
Sleep Can Improve Metabolism
An added advantage of getting plenty of sleep is that it’s proven to increase the body’s metabolism, making that extra bit of indulgence every trip encompasses seem less of a concern; sightseeing does burn a lot of energy, after all.
Sleep Makes You More Sociable
At Red Carnation we take pride in making every guest feel at home, with concierge who are always on hand to give restaurant recommendations and sightseeing tips. It’s by talking to locals in this way that travellers can find out about the lesser-known sites and really get under the skin of a destination.
Sleep Can Improve Memory
We’ve all had days that seem a blur shortly afterwards because we were too tired to take everything in. As travel experiences so often become treasured memories, make sure you remember the time you’ve had by getting plenty of sleep during your stay.
Sleep Makes You Feel More Relaxed
Finally, it’s important to remember that you’re on holiday, and while travel is for experiencing the local culture, trying the food and seeing the local sites, it’s also a chance to relax. And this comes far more naturally after a sound night’s sleep.
