Brooklyn's Music-Inspired Hotel Will Guarantee A 'Sound' Night's Sleep
We always like it when new hotels start interacting with their guests way before their doors have even opened. And at Brooklyn's music-inspired Hotel BPM, which doesn't open until April, there has been quite a bit of community involvement going on, practically since day one. Like posting shots of the finished bathrooms on Instagram. Or asking Facebook and Twitter fans to give the hotel's 76 custom-made mattresses a snappy name.
Last week, the "What's That Bed Called?" contest yielded a winner: "The Sound Sleeper." Which kind of makes us think there should be some kind of speaker system installed directly into the mattress—wouldn't that be cool! But maybe not so practical...
No shots of the beds have been released. Supposedly, however, the pillow top mattresses are able to cushion pressure points in your body that "lower" the body's "beats per minute." It all sounds a little hokey to us, but really, as long as the thing is comfortable, they can call it whatever the heck they want. The Sound Sleeper mattresses will also be available for purchase separately.
