In tandem with its re-launch, following a $10 million renovation, the hotel has revamped and renamed its sleep program, Rest & Renew, under the direction of sleep expert and author Rebecca Robbins.
Known to travel the world speaking on the latest sleep research, much of it conducted from Robbins’ base of studies and findings outlined in the book she co-authored in 2011 titled Sleep for Success!, Robbins is now the Official Sleep Consultant at The Benjamin, leading the hotel’s Sleep Team to provide the most up-to-date solutions and tools anchored in sleep medicine.
Robbins, who has stayed at The Benjamin numerous times, has taken a close look at the hotel's sleep offerings and made adjustments to the offerings based on the latest research in sleep medicine. While a good number of the original pillow choices remain on the list, some have been replaced with updated selections from the Sleep for Success line of pillows that Robbins helped to engineer. The pillow menu is now arranged by sleeper type (side sleeper, back, stomach, etc.).
In addition to evaluating and updating the program elements, Robbins is doing what she believes is core to being the best: training the entire staff on getting a good night’s sleep to ensure guests have 24-hour access to sleep tips and assistance with their pillow selection from the Rest & Renew Menu."
