This is just too good to pass up.
A surge in naked sleepwalking among guests has led one of Britain’s largest budget hotel groups to re-train staff to handle late-night nudity.
Travelodge, which runs more than 300 business hotels in Britain, says sleepwalking rose seven-fold in the past year, and 95 per cent of the sleepwalkers are scantily clad men.
“We have seen an increased number of cases over the years, so it is important that our staff know how to help sleepwalking when it arises,” Leigh McCarron, the chain’s sleep director, said in a statement.
One tip in the company’s newly released “sleepwalkers guide” tells staff to keep towels handy at the front desk in case a customer’s dignity needs preserving.
The company said naked wanderers often ask receptionists such questions as “Where’s the bathroom?”, “Do you have a newspaper?” or “Can I check out, I’m late for work?”

I guess this is a sublte message for sleepwalkers: wear your jammies to bed.
