“What’s your pillow preference?” That was one of the first questions that Emiliano, the butler at Future Found Sanctuary, asked me when he brought me to my suite in Cape Town, South Africa on Monday. As a travel writer, I’m noticing more hotels are starting to up their pillow game. Even The Benjamin Royal Sonesta New York now boasts a pillow menu featuring not two, not three, not even four, but eight different pillows guests can choose from.

If you’re not familiar with Sobel Westex, you’ll want to be. It’s the brand that more than 5,000 luxury hotels and resorts around the world trust to give their guests the best night’s sleep possible. In fact, the brand says more than two million hotel beds around the world have Sobel Westex pillows on them right now.
Through Monday, February 20, Sobel Westex is offering incredible Presidents Day deals at its website. For example, my Hotel Sahara Nights pillow, which is $60 at Amazon, is marked down to just $41 at sobelathome.com. And for side sleepers? There’s the Hotel Sobella Soft Pillow, which has nearly 1,000 perfect five-star ratings at Amazon and is currently on sale for $44.

But by far, the best pillow deal is on the Ni Nights II Pillow Pack, which comes with two hypoallergenic pillows designed for all sleepers. Originally $59, it’s now just $15 — bringing each pillow to just under $8 each. That’s for standard size, but even the king size is just $18 (originally $69). Obviously, a sale like this can’t
