The Benjamin Dreams Up The Perfect Mother's Day Gift FOR SLEEP-DEPRIVED MOMS


One- and Two-Night “Sleep Certificates” Ensure Mom Slumbers Peacefully in  “The City that Never Sleeps”


New York, NY (April 7, 2008) – This Mother’s Day, The Benjamin hotel has a suggestion for those seeking the perfect gift: forgo the flowers for something mom could really use – a good night’s sleep.  The hotel, which is known for its ‘Sleep Guarantee’ and full range of sleep-inducing services and strategies, offers one- and two-night “Perfect Night’s Sleep” certificates which are ideal for sleep-deprived moms.  The certificates are available for Mother’s Day, May 11, 2008 and can be purchased for a dollar amount by calling 1-888-4-BENJAMIN (hotel rates start at $329).

 The Benjamin goes to extraordinary lengths to back up its guarantee of a good night’s rest. The hotel’s Sleep Concierge Anya Orlanska ensures that guests get everything they need to sleep peacefully.  “We can offer tired moms a selection of 12 different types of pillows from which to choose: down, upper body, buckwheat, satin, hypo-allergenic, water-filled, Swedish memory, magnetic therapy, a gelly-neckroll, a five-foot body cushion, sound, pregnancy and a special anti-snore pillow,” says Orlanska.

In addition to the pillows, the hotel features 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 custom-designed Benjamin Bed is covered with 100% Egyptian Cotton 400-plus thread count sheets by Anichini and a down-filled comforter with luxurious triple sheeting.  (The pillows, sheets, and mattresses have become so popular that they are now offered for sale for guests who want to sleep as well at home as they do at The Benjamin!)  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.

The sleep concierge can also arrange a relaxing massage at the hotel’s Wellness Spa to help guests unwind, a bedtime snack of milk and cookies or other sleep-inducing room service choices, or the loan of a bedside white noise machine that electronically drowns out any stray background noise. 

“We’re not doctors.  We don’t cure sleep disorders.  But we’ll do everything we can to make sure that our guests naturally get the rest they need for the next New York day,” says Orlanska.
