New York: The Benjamin

This 186 roomed hotel is one of New York’s premier luxury hotels – The Benjamin, this hotel attracted me with thier pillow menu. A sleep concierge will help you select from 10 types of pillows for the ultimate night’s sleep. Prices start at around US$389 per night.

In a classic 1927 building carefully restored to its original grandeur, The Benjamin hotel provides New York City travelers with a warm, intimate atmosphere and the utmost in personal attention.  An all Executive Suite Hotel, each room has the custom-designed Benjamin Bed (queen) including 500-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, a down duvet, luxury Anichini bedding and sleep menu with a 12-Choice Pillow Menu. The rooms also feature a small kitchen galley with a mini refrigerator, iPod alarm clock/radio, HD flat-screen TV, and an executive work desk including a multi-outlet station and high-speed Internet access.

I found the hotel charming, well situated and the pillows gave me the best nights sleep.
