The Benjamin Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Sleep is taken very seriously at the Benjamin. In addition to the "sleep concierge" and pillow menu, white noise machines, satin sleep masks, slippers, "sleep snacks," and a dream dictionary are available to make sure guests sleep through the endless sounds of the city.
The Ritz-Carlton New York Battery Park Rating: 4.5 Pearls
The Ritz's location at the southern tip of Manhattan, about 100 yards from New York Harbor, is tranquil during the day and downright -- almost eerily -- quiet at night. Since nearby dining and entertainment options are scarce, there won't be many late-night revelers around; the proximity to the Financial District makes this a popular choice for business travelers.
Gild Hall Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Affinia Shelburne Rating: 3.5 Pearls
Located in Manhattan's largely residential, somewhat sleepy Murray Hill neighborhood, the mid-priced Affinia Shelburne is a quiet, low-key property.
70 Park Avenue Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls
This quiet, relaxing hotel in Murrray Hill attracts mostly business travelers, so you'll be surrounded by guests trying to get sleep before work the next day -- not late-night partiers.
Kitano New York Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Soundproof windows in the rooms shut out any outside noise at the Kitano, which isn't much. Located on an especially quiet, residential strip of snazzy Park Avenue in Murray Hill, Kitano caters to families and business travelers. Soft earth tones and hushed lounge music in the lobby enhance the hotel's relaxing, Japanese zen vibe.
Affinia Dumont Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Affinia Dumont's Murray Hill location is upscale and quiet, yet well-lit and safe. The hotel gears its services toward adults rather than families, so there won't be many squealing tots around to break your reverie.
