Dreamy Hotels Where You Can Get The Best Sleep Of Your Life

Huffington Post’s Suzy Strutner recently listed some of “The Best Hotels For Sleep In The US”.

Sometimes travel can be stressful, so getting a good night’s sleep is even more important than usual at those times.

When comparing hotel choices, it’s worth keeping in mind that some hotels really go the extra mile when it comes to enhancing your travel sleeping to be as dreamy as possible.  From sound-proof rooms, memory foam mattresses, overstuffed down pillows and mattress toppers, to aromatherapy, white noise generators, softened lighting and lullaby music libraries, these hotels are placing a special priority on putting you in your own comfort zone.

Even some more cost-friendly brand hotels, such as Sleep In Hotels, have been revamping recently by strategically placing elevators and TV’s, etc., to reduce noise, and making higher quality bedding and pillows a greater priority.

When you think of the best places to sleep you might not think of Las Vegas first, so it’s surprising to see the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas mentioned in this article.  But in their “Stay Well” rooms, they feature things like air purification, aromatherapy, Vitamin C infused showers and special soft lighting to reduce disruptions to circadian rhythms, etc.  At night there’s subtle red lighting to avoid suppression of melatonin levels, and even dawn simulators to wake up guests more naturally in the morning.

Check out the complete article which lists 14 specific hotels and hotel brands, and all of their very relaxation friendly features:  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/best-hotels-for-sleep-in-the-us_us_561d44b2e4b050c6c4a3018b?utm_hp_ref=travel   Then, of course, come back here to find the best prices to get you there!
