Morgans Hotel Group Partners With The School of Life For Mind-Expanding Amenities
Should your hotel stay stimulate your mind? Morgans Hotel Group has inked a collaboration with London-based social enterprise The School of Life. The School of Life runs classes, seminars, sermons and more that address life's big questions including relationships, family community and more.
The Schooh of Life will host a series of talks in hotels across the Morgans Hotel Group portfolio. Members of The School of Life faculty will cover topics such as Conversation, Reading, Travel and Culture. Romance, or more specifically 'How to make love last', will be the order of the day when The School of Life hosts its first event, a Conversation Dinner at Suka at Sanderson on Valentine's Day 2011.
A Minibar for the Mind has also been created for Morgans Hotel Group (launching first at London hotels Sanderson and St Martins Lane). Priced at $56, the custom-made box is also available at Morgans Semi-Automatic vending machines at Hudson, Mondrian South Beach and St Martins Lane and contains a box of conversation starters; a volume of the best columns written by The School of Life's faculty and friends; two tailor-made reading prescriptions from The School of Life's Bibliotherapists designed to evoke moods of relaxation or seduction and a notebook and pencil set.
The School of Life will also curate the Semi-Automatic machine in the St Martins Lane hotel lobby. Through March 31, a selection of The School of Life's favorite products and experiences will be available, including: Bibliotherapy Gift Vouchers, Dinner with renowned writer/ philosopher Alain de Botton, limited edition design objects and good reads - all inspired by themes of Love, Work, Play and Self. And if you are ever stuck for dinner chat, guests dining at Morgans Hotel Group's Hudson (New York), Ames (Boston) and Sanderson (London) restaurants will also be offered a Conversation Menu which provides a selection of conversation prompts. In addition, guests at all properties will also be treated to a Daily Aphorism card at turn down service.
