Quiet zone for tired guests is a perk worth shouting about in powerful hotel PR campaign

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 its 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.
