Quality sleep ranks highly for an enjoyable hotel stay

2 min read

The number one reason people want to travel is to rest and recharge, so it is perhaps no surprise that Australians rank getting some decent shut-eye as one of the most important considerations when choosing a hotel for their holiday.

New research from Hilton Australia has revealed that 62 per cent of travellers rank a good night’s sleep as one of the top three requirements for an enjoyable hotel stay.

The research showed that sleep has become such a rare commodity for many of us, that we consciously invest in our sleep and prioritise it whether at home or travelling.

Getting a good night’s sleep was ranked against traditional requirements for an enjoyable hotel stay like location, ambience, hotel service and health and wellness facilities and it was identified as one of the most crucial requirements for travellers.

Paul Hutton, area vice-president and head of Australasia, Hilton, said guests are selecting hotels based on the environment of the hotel room.

“Increasingly, we’re seeing that guests are selecting hotels based on the environment of the hotel room, from the soft furnishings to the temperature and noise levels, which we know has a large impact on quality of sleep.

“Our research has found most people have specific bedtime routines and rituals to wind down and elevate their sleep quality. Whether it’s by regulating workout routines, avoiding alcohol, caffeine or devices before bed, taking hot baths or showers, drinking herbal teas or listening to music or white noise, it matters where you stay, and we’re focused on ensuring we deliver an exceptional experience that is reliable and friendly to every guest.” Mr Hutton said.

Hilton offers guests the option to check-in via the Hilton Honors app ahead of their stay. This allows guests to view a floorplan to pre-select their room quickly and easily with specific requirements like choosing a quiet room away from an elevator or on a high floor, and pre-ordering extra pillows from housekeeping.

Good hotels are constantly testing innovative sleep-enhancing and noise-cancelling solutions so it is well worth looking into their offerings before you book.
