Joe Gaeta, The Benjamin’s general manager says,
“With no one telling you to stop work and no distractions when you are in the room by yourself, business travelers find themselves working past midnight. The Work-Down Call is our way of trying to help our guests find work/life balance while on the road and get the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep per night.”
So, how does it work? Not like your mom screaming at you “Go ta bed!” because like, that never worked. Guests schedule the Work-Down Call an hour before they want to go to sleep. It’s recommended they turn of all their electronics at that time, so the brain can wind down to a place where it can relax into a deep sleep.
The Sleep Concierge can also arrange for items from the Sleep Menu to be sent to your room, such as a white noise machine, a dream dictionary or a bedtime snack of warm milk with a PB&J on banana bread. That, coupled with the 12-choice Pillow and Sleep Menu that we wrote about before should have you in La-La-Land in no time.
And with that, we’re going to get a jump start on our own powering down, celebrate this holiday, and call it a night early for once. Sweet dreams!
Rates at The Benjamin begin at $529 this week.
