Guests who choose to stay in The Gregory Hotel’s Ultimate Sleep Room will spend the night in a room that’s decked out with one purpose in mind: helping vacationers get those all-important, high-quality Zzzs.
“We developed this activation to help promote National Sleep Awareness Month,” Area Managing Director for Highgate Yaniv Packin told Mattress Clarity via email. “Sleep is an important pillar of health, and many people still aren’t receiving an adequate amount.”
As part of the offering, guests of the New York City-based hotel will have an opportunity to utilize a number of sleep-promoting products, including extra-comfy bedding, a weighted blanket, sleep-inducing ice cream, and CBD products. Here’s a closer look at what’s in store for guests who choose to stay in the Ultimate Sleep Room.
What’s Inside The Ultimate Sleep Room
“We chose products that would make the guest comfortable, elevate their sleep time, and give them the chance to try some new things,” Packin told us. “Many of the items that are featured in the room are sleep-doctor approved.”
Per the hotel’s rep, the room’s sleep-promoting items include:
- GoodNight Lighting Science, which features spectrum technology and A19 LED bulbs to purportedly support circadian rhythms and deep sleep.
- Nightfood “sleep-friendly ice cream,” which was designed by sleep scientists to include sleep-supporting ingredients and leave out ingredients that might interfere with sleep. Rather than include sleep aid additives, Nightfood boasts a carefully curated balance of minerals, protein, fiber, enzymes, and amino acids.
- CBD products from Come Back Daily, which may help provide relief from anxiety and depression and thus facilitate falling and staying asleep.
- The Gregory Hotel Mattress, which features Beautyrest® Pocketed Coil® technology for comfort and support and AirCool® Gel-Infused Foam for temperature regulation. In addition to promoting a cool, comfortable night’s sleep, the mattress also features a number of eco-friendly qualities in its design.
- Valley Forge sheets, which have a silky, luxurious feel, moisture-wicking properties to ensure a cooler sleep, and an eco-friendly design. The sheets are made with Tencel+Plus™ Lyocell fibers derived from eucalyptus and other botanicals and then blended with cotton. The Living Fresh Linens are the only linens that currently carry the designation USDA BioPreferred under the USDA Biobased certification program.
- Magic Weighted Blanket, which may help promote deeper sleep in part by soothing anxiety. (Read more about the science behind weighted blankets.)
- SensorPEDIC Quilted Memory Foam Cluster Pillows, which are meant to provide breathable, moisture-wicking comfort and support. The pillow features Nanotex Coolest Comfort Technology to help prevent guests from overheating as they sleep.
Even with all these sleep-friendly accouterments, the hotel can’t guarantee better sleep. But Packin told us that “We hope guests take advantage of the opportunities to improve their sleep health. We are providing the opportunity for them to experience products they may not have ever known would assist them… At The Gregory Hotel, quality sleep rests at the center of our core values. We are extremely proud of our product both in and out of the Ultimate Sleep Room.”
That experience is available to guests for $199/night and runs through April 10.
In the future, the hotel plans to bring guests another experiential opportunity centered around National Pet Day. Additionally, Packin says, “We consider ourselves students of the “true night’s sleep” and are always looking for and experimenting with new ideas and ways to promote amazing, restful nights… We absolutely plan to have exciting new ways to promote sleep in the future.”
