International hotel chain Crowne Plaza has announced that it has introduced "snore patrols" and "snore absorption rooms" at several hotels across the world, ensuring that its patrons are able to get plenty of rest. Crowne Plaza installed its first few "snore absorption" rooms at ten hotels around Europe and the Middle East, while six branches of the chain has employed "snore patrols". These monitors patrol corridors in pre-designated quiet zones of the company's chains in London, Manchester and Leeds, listening out for any offensive noises and knocking on the door of guests who are the worst offenders for snore-related noise pollution. "We have quiet zones on two floors of the hotel,” said Leeds Crowne Plaza snore monitor Laura Simpson. "As snore monitor, I conduct floor walks to check for noise disruptions, paying particular attention to the quiet zone rooms. Guests can ask to stay our quiet zone rooms if they are particularly light sleepers." If repeat offenders want to return to the hotel in the future, they will be offered alternative rooms.
