Hotel Viking is known for having one of the coolest rooftops in Newport, and now it may have the coolest beds in town – literally.

BedJet – the internationally recognized sleep tech start-up based in Brick Market that we reported on last week – just announced Hotel Viking as its first partner in a new hotel pilot program that launched earlier this summer. 

The program, available exclusively to luxury hotels, is one of several new marketing initiatives that the rapidly growing company launched company this year.

As part of the launch with Hotel Viking, BedJet installed V2 climate comfort systems in 10 select suites the hotel at the end of July. Guests in BedJet-equipped suites operate the comfort system via remote control or by accessing a free smartphone app.

“Managing hotel room temperatures can be a notoriously difficult challenge,” said Mark Aramli, founder and inventor, BedJet. “We’re thrilled to partner with Hotel Viking to offer this game-changing comfort amenity.”

“Quality of sleep is among the top concerns cited by travelers,” said Richard Carroll, director of sales and marketing, Hotel Viking. “Our partnership with BedJet demonstrates our proactive approach to ensuring our guests have the best possible experience during their stay at Hotel Viking.”

The BedJet, which launched in 2015, is the first automated smart climate comfort system for beds with ultra-rapid temperature control.  The BedJet enables sleepers to instantly cool off, warm up, or anything in between with regulated temperature setpoints.  The device incorporates innovative biorhythm temperature technology, enabling automated temperature adjustments throughout the night to help users get to sleep faster, stay asleep longer and wake up more refreshed.
