If you hate your spouse's snoring, a popular hotel chain may have the answer

Crowne Plaza, owned by Intercontinental, has unveiled a "snore absorption room." It has soundproofed walls, a sound absorbing headboard, a white noise machine, an anti-snoring pillow and even a bed wedge, to keep the snorer in a position that reduces the likelihood of snoring.

The room was tested out for a week recently at nine Crowne Plaza hotels in Europe.

When will the chain bring the room to the U.S.? Officials are sleeping on it.
