Mints on the pillow are a staple of many hotel nightly turndown services. JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts is ramping it up more than a little, with a curated nightly turndown service offering a rotation of free nocturnal amenities, from a sleep-promoting organic bar to a blend of essential oils. The “Nightly Refresh Program” is available at participating JW Marriot properties worldwide this summer, and each amenity is accompanied by information cards on each.

Amenities include “The Dream Bar,” developed for the chain in partnership with nutritionist and author Keri Glassman, a bar with organic oats to release sleep-inducing serotonin, blueberries, chia seeds, almonds and coconut. There’s also “Revive Oil,” created by a Marriott partner, Aromatherapy Associates, a blend of pink grapefruit, rosemary and juniper berry; “Wine Down,” in  partnership with Treasury Wine Estates, which offers wine samples;  and , going well beyond the pillow-mint stage, Astor Chocolates, another Marriott partner which created “The JW Marriott Collection,” an assortment of luxury morsels. Check it out at www.jwmarriott.com
