New York
In the city that never sleeps, you can now drop by The Dreamery for a 45-minute nap to recharge in a calming yet whimsical venue insulated from the frenetic pace of Lower Manhattan. Adorned with playful line drawings and star-like LED lights embedded in walls of dark blue, the space was conceived by mattress-making startup company Casper as a magical “nap lounge” for sleep-deprived locals and visitors. It has nine circular private pods fitted out with cozy bedding, sleepwear, amenities, and optional sleep audio courtesy of meditation app Headspace.

Hong Kong
Pay by the hour or by the night at the quirky SLEEEP hotel that opened last December in Hong Kong’s hip Sheung Wan district. Check-in via QR code and slip into one of eight wood-lined “SLPer” capsules, which feature soft organic bedding, magnetic black-out curtains, a supply of fresh air, and even a sunrise alarm that allows you to wake naturally. A personal locker with two organic cotton towels (for a welcome hot shower) are provided, as is drinking water and locally sourced bath amenities. Says co-founder Alex Kot, “While we cannot guarantee quality sleep for every guest, we have users who say they sleep better than at home, and others who have gotten a rare deep sleep despite their insomnia.”
