InterContinental Hotels Group announced the trial of new LED lighting technology that will help guests sleep better during hotel stays.

The hotelier is working with Lighting Science, maker of Healthe lighting technology, to test the company’s Journi mobile task light in guest rooms. The device adjusts the wavelengths of light to promote a healthy circadian rhythm, and adjusts the 480 nanometer wavelength to be present to boost alertness during the day and absent when it’s time for bed.

“At IHG, we want to make sure our guests are getting the best night’s sleep possible,” said Brian McGuinness, senior vice president for guest experience. “Our circadian lighting technology pilot is the latest example of the work we are doing to innovate” in this area.

The trial will take place at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Airport. It will be the first use of Lighting Science’s Healthe lighting in a hotel setting.
