Worries to the Weary

6787If you have trouble getting a good night’s sleep at a hotel, the people at the Benjamin hotel in Manhattan think they have the solution.

The 209-room hotel offers a pillow menu with a choice of 12 pillows, including hypo-allergenic and water-filled types. The hotel also offers white noise machines that play soothing sounds to put guests’ mind at ease and the hotel’s spa can send a masseuse to your room. But the Benjamin took its sleep program one step further last week by introducing a “work-down call.” A work-down call is the opposite of a wake-up call. You can arrange to have a sleep concierge call at a designated time to remind you to get ready for bed. It involves a sleep concierge calling you at a preordained time to remind you it’s time to brush your teeth, set aside work for the day and whatever else you need to do to get ready for bed.

“We advise our guests to shut down all electronic devices and just unwind about an hour before you go to bed. That way you are guaranteed to get some rest,” said Anya Orlanska, head of the hotel’s sleep concierge team. “If you don’t get the proper amount of sleep, you are not going to be able to function.”

However, such luxuries don’t come cheap. The rates at the Benjamin range from about $350 to $1,400 per night for the VIP suite.

We all need our nightly rest, but if you need a rest from dealing with insurance problems, Duncan Financial Group is the place for you. One quick call to (724)-863-3420 could be as rejuvenating as a good night’s sleep.
