A good night’s sleep at The Berkeley in London doesn’t stop at check-out as the fashionable hotel in Knightsbridge presents guests heading for the airport with a limited-edition travel gift. Luxury Italian linen house Pratesi, which produces all of The Berkeley’s linens, has created an exclusive travel pillow cases designed to fit over a generic airplane pillow which the hotel has just unveiled. As airlines all over the world cut back on in-flight amenities, simple pleasures such as the ultimate nap onboard a 747 come as a welcome relief for frequent travelers.
Perfect for transatlantic flights, the pillow case is presented in a stylish linen carrier bag and guests at The Berkeley are encouraged to bring it back to the hotel on their next visit so the laundry team can ensure it is crisp and clean for take-off. Besides earplugs, a cashmere eye mask and your favorite tunes, the pillow case is sure to make air travel just a little more comfortable and glamorous.
Klaus Kabelitz, General Manager at The Berkeley commented: “The spirit of The Berkeley culture is built around all aspects of exquisite innovation and Pratesi linen pillow cases created to fit over the generic airplane pillows are the small touches that make a real difference. Our mission is to create a Berkeley experience which continues beyond our hotel walls, whether it is a call prior to check-in to ensure the mini bar is stocked with your favorite treats or a comfortable journey home.”
