Breathe Right, maker of nasal strips designed to ease congestion and help people breathe and sleep better, set up a pop-up pod hotel at the Royal Bank Plaza in Toronto and invited working folks to take 20-minute naps for free.

Of course, the pod hotel guests were also asked to try out the brand’s nasal strips while they take their midday power naps in one of the tube-shaped beds.

People can book their naps in advance via an app on the company’s Facebook page. There are also a few beds reserved for walk-in guests.

The pod hotel tests the idea that taking power naps during the day can help relieve stress and increase productivity.

Breathe Right’s pod hotel was created in partnership with Toronto-based agency Blammo and was first set up at Montreal and Ottawa. It will be in Toronto until the 27th of October.
