With daylight hours dwindling and the winter blues setting in, the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane has launched London’s first Five Senses Suite.
Working with a behavioural scientist and psychologist, the Art Deco hotel in Mayfair has introduced an array of items and experiences which have been found to be conducive to a happy state, marked by an increased release of endorphins.
The three-layered research (questionnaire, facial coding and heart rate monitoring) revealed the soothing sound of jazz made three out of four respondents feel happy and positive, while, soft, fluffy towels ignited feelings of contentment in an impressive 98 per cent of respondents.
Other findings showed that the colour green was one of the most smile-inducing sights, with an image of flowers making almost three quarters of people (72 per cent) report feeling content.
Champagne and fresh fruit encouraged the highest release of endorphins during a taste test, and when it comes to smell, the fresh scent of the ocean came out top with 79 per cent of respondents reporting feeling uplifted.
In response to the findings, the luxurious Grand Suite overlooking leafy Green Park at the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane will become London’s only Five Senses Suite offering guests a memorable multi-sensory hotel experience.
A dedicated Five Senses Concierge will greet guests on arrival, offering a choice of the finest quality towels from the limited edition bath linen menu.
Guests will also choose their favoured smile inducing aroma, lavender or sea salt, which will be infused in diffusers and bath salts.
A glass of their preferred fizz and the uplifting British Jazz played through the vintage record player will ease guests through the tough decisions.
Kieran Quinn, hotel manager at Sheraton Grand London Park Lane, said: “Sheraton Grand London Park Lane has gone above and beyond for its guests for 90 years and with the creation of London’s Five Senses Suite we are now offering our guests an even more memorable experience.
“This new offering absolutely elevates our five star services to the next level and encourages guests to make the most out of their stay with us with an added guaranteed boost of contentment.”
