IHG installs innovative lighting tech to help guests sleep better


IHG partnered with Healthe by Lighting Science, to pilot a new circadian lighting. This technology helps guests sleep better while traveling. Healthe by Lighting Science is a global leader in innovative LED lighting solutions.

Crowne Plaza Atlanta Airport will be the first IHG property to install the JOURNI Mobile Task Light in guest rooms. Designed using GoodDay and GoodNight spectrum technologies, it allows access to the focus-enhancing spectrum during the day. It then allows an easy change to the warm, sleep-enhancing spectrum at night.

This versatile, dual-spectrum luminaire can help you to effortlessly bring energy-efficient, circadian lighting right to your hotel room. JOURNI also helps to regulate the body’s circadian rhythm or 24-hour internal body clock.

IHG already has programs in place across its brands based including:

Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts Sleep Advantage Programme offers guests 100 percent cotton bed linen for unbelievable softness and This Works aromatherapy line that contain pure essential oils that help guests recover from the day’s stress and to sleep more soundly

EVEN Hotels lighting profiles allows guests to change the color of the lighting in their rooms to blue, red, green or yellow. This helps them energize or relax.

Brian McGuinness, senior vice president of Global Guest Experience Shared Services, IHG, commented: “At IHG, we want to make sure our guests are getting the best night’s sleep possible across our 5,600 hotels and portfolio of more than 15 brands. We are continually testing ways we can enhance the guest experience, loyalty and ultimately, owner value. Our circadian lighting technology pilot is the latest example of the work we are doing to innovate the guest experience. We’re excited to be the first hotel company to pilot Healthe’s JOURNI product and are already working on what’s coming next.”
