Meet the million-dollar mattress

Fall asleep faster, sleep better and wake up naturally, with no alarm needed.

Well, it’s not exactly that price. It is more like $8,600 for a king-size. But when you wake up, you’re likely to feel like a million bucks.

That’s thanks to the Restorative Bed, a new offering from the AI sleep-technology company Bryte. Developed with leading sleep scientists, the Restorative Bed is designed with sleep health in mind and allows hotel travelers to fall asleep faster, sleep better and wake up naturally, with no alarm needed in their guest rooms.

Locally, you can find the Restorative Bed at the Park Terrace Hotel in Bryant Park, Manhattan. And what’s even better is that you can “save” all of your preferences, so that you get the same excellent slumber experience at other luxury hotels across the country that also feature the Restorative Bed. They include the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Cavallo Point San Francisco, Rancho Valencia Resort, The London West Hollywood and the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort.

Here’s how it works:  The Restorative Bed is purpose-built to improve restorative sleep actively to help you get those all-important 40 winks. An embedded sensory network detects biometrics such as heart rate and breathing patterns to identify when a sleeper enters the first stage of sleep, triggering cooling features to lower the body’s core temperature and gently lull sleepers into the critical stages of deep sleep. Meanwhile, 100 computer-controlled air cushions within the bed alleviate pressure points by continually recalibrating the support a body needs, encouraging longer and more restorative slumber.

Then, special sensor technology analyzes your sleep and tracks your sleep. Its 100 coils can be adjusted for pressure and support.

“It relieves high pressure points,” Francisco Levine, Bryte’s chief business officer, says of the bed. “It feels like a spa treatment in bed.”

“Guests at luxury and wellness hotels are more health aware,” adds Ely Tsern, Bryte’s CEO. “Hotels want to differentiate themselves, and their core business is sleep. The response has been amazing….Wellness hospitality is clearly moving beyond the spa and there is no better way to deliver wellness at scale than through every guest room,” he says.

The Restorative Bed also has its own Sleep Science Advisory Board, headed by leading sleep adviser Matthew Walker. Walker’s website lists him as a “sleep diplomat” and he is the author of the international best seller “Why We Sleep.” Charting cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs and synthesizing decades of research and clinical practice, “Why We Sleep” explains how you can harness sleep to improve learning, mood and energy levels; regulate hormones; prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s, obesity and diabetes; slow the effects of aging; increase longevity; enhance the education and lifespan of our children; and boost the efficiency, success and productivity of your businesses. “We work closely with Dr. Walker and with doctors at Stanford and the world’s best sleep scientists,” Tsern says.

“In the future, everyone will be sleeping this way,” he adds. Currently, licensing deals with mattress manufacturers are in the works.

Numerous other hotels are being added to the roster every month and, by the end of the year, the Bryte bed is slated to be featured in about a total of 25 hotels.

It gives a whole meaning to the phrase “waking up Bryte’ eyed and bushy tailed.”
