Where are the best hotels in the US for a good night’s sleep?

There is nothing nicer than sinking into a gorgeous hotel bed with crisp sheets when you’re on holiday, so when a bed doesn’t live up to what you hoped for, it’s very disappointing. A survey by Mattress Advisor has come up with a list of the top 25 hotels in the US with the comfiest beds, as per its research. This information may be useful because good quality sleep is particularly important when you’re travelling. It’s easy to feel jet-lagged and worn out while on the move, and some people find it hard to fall asleep in a different environment.

Mattress Advisor came to its conclusions from examining information gleaned from Facebook star ratings, as well as Google ratings. It also ran a text analysis on over 150 hotels and 7000 Facebook reviews to determine a hotel’s average sleep sentiment.  The most important hotel feature was found to be a good bed, which includes comfortable bedding, a cozy mattress and the perfect number of pillows. A total of 80.6% of respondents to the survey chose it as the single most important feature.
