A sleep expert from the Edinburgh Sleep Center says that scientific evidence shows that sleep comes when body temperature starts to fall. He say a warmer bed could help guests to sleep better whereas a cooler bed would tend to inhibit sleep.
Personally, I don't know about a warmer bed helping somebody to sleep. I actually prefer a colder bed and colder room. There is nothing I like more than to slide underneath some cool sheets and pulling the covers up around my head. Besides, the mere thought of a stranger climbing into bed to warm it for me just sounds kind of creepy.
