    Silencing Snorers once and for all

    Crowne Plaza trials the world's first snore absorption room

    The Crowne Plaza snore absorption room

    Snoring sufferers can finally sleep easy thanks to the first ever snore absorption room that's helping the sleep deprived tune out and nod off from their noisy partners. The new room, which is being trialled by Crowne Plaza is a result of research revealing more than half of UK couples are losing between one and five hours sleep a night due to the snoring and snuffling of their partners. That's up to a decade of lost sleep over a lifetime.​

    In the UK, the snore absorption room is being trialled at Crowne Plaza London The City for one week from 27 June - 1 July. The room uses proven technology to help reduce the dreaded, repetitive nasal noise. The technology includes:​
    • Sound proofing on walls to absorb the loud frequencies, deflect the sound waves and minimise the impact of snoring. The walls use egg box style foam which reduces the noise reverberating in the room
    • A specially designed sound absorbing head board that will work together with the sound proof walling to muffle the echo within the room
    • An anti-snoring bed wedge which acts as a body pillow, encouraging snoring guests to sleep on their sides or upright. Lying flat on your back makes the base of the tongue and soft palate collapse to the back wall of the throat which causes snoring
    • An anti-snoring pillow which uses rare neodymium magnets to create a natural magnetic field, opening the airways and stiffening the upper palate which vibrates during snoring
    • A white noise machine which is proven to help drown out the droning snoring noise and help sleep and relaxation

    I'd simply like to experience less noise from other rooms (feet pounding on floor above, water rush through pipes in walls, toilets, etc).

    I'd also like to see more courtesy on the behalf of people who come back to the hotel late in the night and instead of whispering, proceed to yell down the hall to each other as to what time to meet for breakfast, who's coming to the meeting, etc etc. But I digress.........

    You have to admit you have a problem first. Although the same issue is exists for this room unless all rooms in the hotel are like this.
