What good is a relaxing vacation if you can’t sleep at night? You’re just cranky and groggy the next day, wasting all the great activities you’ve planned. These hotels promise that won’t happen. Here’s 10 hotels where you’ll get the best sleep of your life.
The Swissotel in Berlin teamed up with a somnologist to develop a state-of-the-art sleep package including light therapy, special pillows, aroma therapy, nutritional supplements and other snooze-inducing elements, according to HotelChatter.com. Guests can also order a detailed sleep analysis.
According to HotelChatter.com, the Hotel Monaco in Chicago has what’s called a tranquility suite, where guests receive ultra-comfortable robes, a sound machine, pajamas, and sleep on insanely relaxing Simmons mattresses.
At the Park Hyatt, guests experience the “sound-sleep initiative.” This includes a relaxation-inducing menu with items such as blueberry lavender elixir. There’s a dedicated sleep channel on the TV and a slumber massage that’s intended to end in a nap, according to HuffingtonPost.com.
If the sounds of the city keep you awake, let The Dorchester be your refuge. According to CNN.com, the rooms feature draft-free windows (no annoying whistling sounds), soundproof walls and terracotta tiles that don’t reflect sound.
A room at the Hôtel de Nell is like a sleep den. The windows are triple-glazed, so the light is always soft and calming. The door to the room weighs 175 pounds and isn’t letting any hallway sounds in. The blinds are thick velvet blackout blinds and finally, there are holes in the ceiling that absorb sound, says CNN.com.
According to TravelandLeisure.com, The W in New York has some of the most comfortable beds in the industry. A fluffy, goose-down duvet wraps you up, and there’s a polar-fleece throw if you want a little added warmth. The bed is a custom-designed Simmons Beautyrest with an 890-coil count. Translation: zero creaking sounds or obnoxious bouncing.
Another TravelandLeisure.com recommendation, the bed in a Four Seasons Bali room is both physically and aesthetically relaxing, with a big, romantic mosquito net draped over the top. The mattress is a Sealy Posturelex 4000, with a very thick mattress pad minimizing bounce. Sleeping here also includes feather and down pillows and down comforters.
According to HotelChatter.com guests of The Bryant Park Hotel enjoy complimentary earplugs. They will also find a sleep mask in the mini bar, and are provided with a sound machine that offers various nature sounds.
With its limited streets and endless vineyards, Napa is one of the quietest places in California. The Auberge du Soleil is one of the quietest hotels in Napa. Hotel rooms are roomy and spread out, so you won’t hear the sounds of your neighbors. One of the hotel spa’s relaxing massages followed by a session at the private yoga pavilion should have you ready for a sound night’s sleep.
This lovely Inn is far from the sounds of the city, and because it is small, there are rarely enough guests to make a ruckus. Each guest stays in a private cottage on the water, so the soothing sounds of nature are everywhere.
