Between the fresh-pressed-and-fluffy sheets, the heaps of pillows a skydiver might prefer over a parachute, and the acres of space to do with what you please, wouldn’t you sleep in hotel beds every night if you could? And considering the average person sleeps for one third of his/her life (time which could be spent watching The Grand Budapest Hotel ~131,400 times — we love that movie), it’s no surprise that just looking at a well-made bed does to our imagination what a Thanksgiving dinner spread does to our salivary glands.
Here, 10 beds to dream about.
Stonehurst Place, Atlanta, GA
And when you finally do get out of bed, the breakfast that awaits is Southern Hospitality itself.
Hotel Viking, Newport, RI
After a Vanderbilt-like day of croquet on the green, tea sandwiches with pitchers of Bloody Mary for lunch, and a fine dinner prepared by a pedantic French chef, a good night’s sleep is a must.
Casa Cayuco Eco Adventure Lodge, Bocas del Toro, Panama
Fall asleep to the tropical sounds of coastal Panama. Wake up to paradise.
Horton Grand Hotel, San Diego, CA
Take a ride on the Dream Sleigh 6000 (TM).
Whitney Peak Hotel, Reno, NV
Like the intricately presented dish you receive at a Michelin star restaurant — you know, the one that feels like a crime to fork apart — this room almost seems better admired like fine art.
The King’s Daughters Inn, Durham, NC
Honestly, there are about five other photos of five other beds at The King’s Daughter Inn that we could have chosen. Basically, you can’t go wrong. Just look at that headboard.
Woolley’s Classic Suites, Aurora, CO
“I had my best night of sleep ever at Woolley’s Classic Suites!”
Partner Advocate, Stash Hotel Rewards
250 Main Hotel, Rockland, ME
Can’t you imagine lazing around with a crossword and the local arts guide, a glass of orange juice on the bedside table and the French press just about ready to pour?
Hotel Andra, Seattle, WA
Sleek radio: dialed in. Sexy bedside lighting: on it. Stylish bedding: obviously, this is Seattle. Fresh flowers: naturally.
Sunset Marquis, West Hollywood, CA
Nothing says rock-star status like a gilded teddy bear. Only question: do rock stars sleep?
