Daylight savings has everyone feeling a little sluggish this week. Luckily, Friday is World Sleep Day (yes, that’s a thing) and the Westin Bayshore is hosting a sleep-centred event for both hotel guests and visitors. There will be massages in the lobby, an on-site nutritionist and lifestyle consultant, a meditation class, and a special “Sleep Elixir” Cocktail served at the H Tasting Lounge—and hopefully, the Saturday morning sleep-in you deserve.
