Falling asleep in the city that never sleeps: Inside the NYC hotel suite with a $200,000 bed

Located 43 stories above Manhattan – you can fall asleep on a cloud, amongst the clouds in the Sleep Suite

The cure to insomnia may exist, and you can find it one of New York's most affluent establishments, 43 floors above Madison Avenue. The aptly-named 'Hästens Ultimate Sleep Suite,' is the crowning jewel of the Lotte New York Palace Hotel, and the entire room was designed as a shrine to sleep. 

The sanctuary is complete with deep soaking tubs to bathe away the hustle of the city, complimentary pajamas, and a private kitchen and bar, where you can mix up the nightcap of your choice. Though, these perks only prepare you for the pièce de resistance of the suite: the bed.

With a value of $200,000, the Hästens  Vividus bed is undoubtedly the pinnacle of the room - and for that price tag, we can only hope it is nightmare proof, and jet-lag proof. 

This Swedish-made bed is the result of 350 hours of labor, using all-natural and breathable materials such as pine, wool, and cotton. All of which contribute to (what we hope can only be) the best sleep of your life.

If organic fabric contributes to a better night's sleep, then it's only right that raw weaves and natural textures are among the colors, patterns, and materials to use in 2021.

Other benefits include a pre-visit consultation with Lotte New York Palace's Sleep Curator, who caters the suite to every guest- covering all bases, from pillow preferences to a personalized tea service. We recommend drinking away from the $200,000 bed to avoid any nightmarish spilling and staining situations. 

If you ever manage to pull yourself away from the bed, which we can't imagine is a good idea, you can still indulge in the luxurious amenities of the Lotte New York Palace Hotel. Plus, the Rockefeller Center and St Patrick's Cathedral are among the attractions which are only a stone's throw away from the hotel's iconic arched entrance.

'We are so thrilled to unveil our partnership with Hästens at Lotte New York Palace,' says Rebecca Hubbard, General Manager of Lotte New York Palace. 

'Our guests expect a level of luxury and exclusivity each time they check-in to Lotte New York Palace, and this partnership allows us to offer a one-of-kind experience that cannot be found at any other hotel.'

Furthermore, Jan Ryde, Hästens Executive Chairman and fifth generation of Hästens, added: 'Partnering with an iconic hotel such as Lotte New York Palace offers a unique opportunity for us to position sleep as the ultimate luxury.' 

Room rates for The Hästens Ultimate Sleep Suite start at $10,000 per night and are available from the Lotte New York Palace Hotel. Though, as a warning, it is going to be one hard wake-up call.
