Sleep is a crucial aspect of a healthy lifestyle, even when traveling. And The Benjamin Royal Sonesta Hotel, in New York City, ensures guests refresh and unwind this season with its new Rest & Renew program, designed for relaxation and rejuvenation. The program includes a curated Pillow Menu, with a pillow selection categorized by sleep position.


Here’s a look at the custom pillow menu:

  • 5-Foot Body Cushion: Aligns the spine for better sleeping posture; perfect for pregnancy or post-surgery
  • Cloud 10: A popular option, featuring more than 10 million air beads to keep the head cool and deliver firm support for the head and neck; ideal for back sleepers
  • Lullaby: Ultra-thin speakers buried in hypoallergenic fiberfill, these pillows deliver a soothing sound experience; best for those who sleep on their stomach
  • Anti-Snore: This reduces snoring by elevating the chin from the chest to keep the airway open; perfect for those who sleep on their back
  • Swedish Memory: With self-molding, heat-sensitive foam, this pillow shapes to the body and responds to temperature; ideal for those who sleep on their back or side
  • Water Filled: Position your head and neck for instant relief from headaches and neck pain with vinyl cushions that fill with warm or cold water for adjustable firmness and support; recommended for stomach sleepers
  • Sleep for Success Side Pillow: Boasting a 2-inch baffled panel design, the pillow offers a raised, even sleep surface for neck alignment and support
  • Sleep for Success Children’s Pillow: The down alternative pillow is ideal for children, with a secret storage pouch inside
  • Sleep for Success Back Sleeper: An exclusive baffled design and a firm outer chamber properly supports the neck, while a soft center chamber cradles the head
