Luxury destinations around the country partnered with Bryte to introduce The Restorative Bed and enhanced sleep programming at their hotels. The revolutionary, AI-powered Restorative Bed uses real-time technology to intuitively adjust based on the individual’s needs and preferences. An embedded sensory network detects biometrics, like heart rate and breathing patterns, when a sleeper enters the first stage of sleep, triggering cooling features and lulling sleepers into deep sleep. Computer-controlled air cushions alleviate pressure points, and the technology also leads sleepers naturally out of sleep.

Talk about a grand entrance! After driving across the state of Pennsylvania and spending the last 40 minutes of our journey in a snowstorm, Nemacolin’s The Chateau coming into view was a welcome and gorgeous sight. After stopping at a checkpoint where our temperatures were taken, we drove to the valet, where we were helped with our many bags (winter gear takes up a lot of luggage space!) and escorted into an equally gorgeous lobby, bedecked with red roses in a nod to Nemacolin’s recent gig as host venue for the latest season of The Bachelor. Given the late hour, the lobby was quiet and empty. We were offered Champagne at check-in and were quickly on our way to our guestroom.
