Nap time: UK's Lowry Hotel
It's not even Christmas yet, let alone New Year's, but we're already looking forward to a post-holiday nap. If you're planning any winter getaways, consider Manchester's Lowry Hotel.
Described by Frommers as "sinuous and sexy," the five-star Lowry's most intriguing draw is an in-house "Sleep Doctor" -- not a sandman or a physician as the name would lead you to believe, but a special menu of treatments and products including a wide range of pillows, massages and spa treatments, sleep masks and ear plugs, giant beds (created by none other than the suppliers of Britain's royal household) and even a "Bath Butler" who will (for a fee) run your bath to the perfect temperature and supply you with everything from bath salts and oils to champagne and strawberries. Sounds positively snooze-inducing.
FYI, Riverside rooms are available at lower promotional rates via the Lowry's website -- prices vary, but are often significantly lower than regular room rates. Score!
