Sleep Well for Less in New York

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of its renowned Sleep Concierge, The Benjamin hotel is offering traveler’s “The Perfect Sleep,” a package featuring the luxury executive hotel’s top ten sleep-inducing remedies, launching during National Sleep Awareness Week, March 7-13, 2011.

The Benjamin’s “The Perfect Sleep” package, starting at $249 a night and valid through December 30, 2011, features its signature “good night’s sleep” in a one-bedroom suite, a bedtime snack of The Benjamin’s famous PB&J sandwich, consultation with the Sleep Concierge, use of the newly enhanced sleep menu, complimentary 25-minute massage at the Wellness Spa, two “night caps” at The National, custom Benjamin eye mask, lavender turndown and late check-out.  Guests will also receive the Sleep Concierge’s top ten sleep tips card at turndown.

To ensure that guests receive a perfect night’s sleep, ten years ago The Benjamin employed a full-time Sleep Concierge, the first and only in the industry, to offer guests advice on pillow selection and other sleep-related issues and backed it up with its sleep guarantee. Over the past 10 years, the Sleep Concierge has counseled thousands of guests by arranging a relaxing massage at the hotel’s Wellness Spa; ordering a signature bedtime snack of warm milk and cookies or other sleep-inducing room service choices; to setting up a bedside white noise machine that electronically drowns out any stray background noise.

“At The Benjamin, we go to extensive lengths to ensure that our guest rooms and suites provide the ideal sleeping environment,” said Anya Orlanska, Sleep Concierge for The Benjamin.  “From simple pillow requests, the Swedish Memory pillow being our most requested, to answering some unusual sleep questions like will staying on the 26th floor disrupt my sleep due to the higher altitude; our guests know we will do whatever it takes to ensure they are well rested for the next day.”

The Benjamin’s sleep guarantee ensures that everyone who stays at the hotel walks away well rested or gets a free night’s stay. The hotel features a 12-choice pillow menu and The Benjamin Bed, a Serta® mattress created exclusively for The Benjamin, with specially engineered convoluted foam cushioning and layers of fibers quilted to the mattress for a luxurious surface feel.  The plush custom-designed Benjamin Bed is covered with 100% Egyptian cotton 400-plus thread count sheets by Anichini and a down-filled comforter with a luxurious duvet cover.  Aromatherapy bathroom amenities help guests relax and prepare for bed. In addition to the luxurious sleep amenities, The Benjamin’s windows are double-glazed with argon gas between the panes to help keep rooms quiet and restful.

During National Sleep Awareness Week, the hotel will provide bedtime snacks, sleep tip cards and sleep amenities to all of its guests.

National Sleep Awareness Week takes place March 7-13, 2011 and is a public education, information and awareness campaign coinciding with the return of Daylight Saving Time, the annual “springing forward” of clocks that can throw off the body’s sleep routine.
