In times of financial distress, many businesses offer services at deep discounts or try to sweeten the deal for customers any way they can. This weekend Hotel Indigo in Edinburgh is going the extra mile.
Guests at the hotel will be able to order a 10-minute show from award-winning Scottish comedienne Janey Godley along with their room service between Thursday, April 19 and Saturday, April 21.
“I’ve done comedy acts in lots of different places but being part of a room service menu is a first for me,” the 51-year-old funny woman told STV network. “I love that people at Hotel Indigo Edinburgh can ring up to order their room service and then the next moment, I’ll be in their room telling jokes and doing my act.”
Hotel manager Dominic Kutschera looks at it as quite a natural turn of events, being that Edinburgh hosts the world’s largest arts festival every summer and has become synonymous with comedy.
“As a local comedian I think it’s great that guests can enjoy a bit of live comedy in the city that is home to the world-famous Fringe festival while they enjoy dinner and sip a glass of wine in the comfort of their own room,” said Godley.
Laughter can reduce stress, increase happiness, strengthen relationships and add years to your life. If this awesome new feature isn’t going to keep Hotel Indigo in business, I don’t know what will.
