Quiet zone for tired guests is a perk worth shouting about

A luxury hotel in Scotland’s capital aims to ensure guests have the ultimate ‘Do Not Disturb’ experience when they are trying to enjoy a good night’s sleep.

The Crowne Plaza Edinburgh – Royal Terrace has designated one of their seven Georgian townhouses as a dedicated ‘Quiet Zone’ to prevent disruptions or excessive noise that may keep guests awake.

Following an impressive £7.25million refurbishment, eight double rooms have been specially adapted to offer corporate visitors the chance to benefit from a perfect night’s sleep.

Soundproof windows, restricting housekeeping to specific times and the fitting of doorbells, are just some of the unique features that have been introduced.

With the addition of luxurious bedding and aromatherapy kits, the hotel has created the perfect setting for business travellers from around the world to unwind in peace.

General Manager, Lucja Leonard said: “The Crowne Plaza – Edinburgh Royal Terrace specialises on meeting the needs of the modern business traveller.

We know how important sleep is – it’s the fuel that powers you for a productive day ahead.

The Quiet Zone reinforce the Crowne Plaza ethos of giving corporate guests the opportunity to keep connected and working, to refuel and to enjoy a rejuvenating night’s sleep to be ready to tackle the day ahead.

This initiative is new to Edinburgh and we are proud to be offering this unique service to our guests.”

As part of the Quiet Zone, housekeeping visits are banned between 9pm and 10am, ensuring no noise from trolleys. The introduction of doorbells in every room means guests are no longer interrupted by loud knocking while soundproof windows also keep the hustle and bustle of the busy Capital city at bay.

Located just five minutes from Princes Street, the hotel’s new look now encompasses all of the grandeur to be expected from an 19th century property combined with a contemporary fresh feel.

Each of the 97 rooms includes complimentary high speed internet and flat screen TV’s.

The hotel also features 10 club rooms, which are the largest suites available and give guests exclusive access to the hotel’s own ‘Club Lounge’, an airport style lounge which guarantees peace and tranquillity with access to leafy gardens, along with unlimited snacks, canapés and beverages.

With a choice of three business conference/meeting rooms accommodating up to 100 delegates in addition to a dedicated boardroom for up to 14 guests the hotel is an ideal venue for conferences and events and is also fully licensed for weddings.
