Where we’ve Slept; the Best Hotel Beds Around the World

Where you go is important but where you stay and if you sleep well can also have a huge impact on your stay. So here is my round-up of the best #hotels, beds, and suites from #Finland, to #NewYork, Vegas, Arizona and more. #Relax!


Part of the luxury and lure of staying in a lavish hotel is the bed, and with some of the finest linens in the world, these hotels generally don’t disappoint.

Think Egyptian cotton, silk pillows, and the finest Italian Frette. Or memory foam mattresses, plush pillows, and antique four-poster canopies set up to offer sweeping city views.

After having extensively slept around, from the intimate bedroom loft apartments of New York, to the lavish furnishings of Biltmore House, here are the best hotel beds from around the world.

When it comes to luxury, Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City is at the top of their game, and their luxurious king-size beds are one of the highlights of each room.

Though in competition with the bed, our 450-square-foot junior suite also featured a sitting area with queen-size memory foam sleeper sofa. We almost didn’t make it through the draped archway which lead to the bedroom itself!
