5. A cashmere throw. This is where you can bring in a pop of color. Garcia said a cashmere throw so often found in upscale hotels is a luxury to bring to your own bed. Besides looking beautiful, she said it's perfect to throw around your shoulders in the middle of the night if you get out of bed for a glass of water. Garcia, like me, prefers her room on the chilly side.
Of course, some hotels actually sell their beds. Westin's famous "Heavenly Bed" is available for purchase. For $3,040 - $3,480, you get the complete set with lots and lots of layers. Marriott sells its bedding, but no mattresses.
And while you can't buy a Four Seasons bed online, they are available for purchase through a Four Seasons concierge.
So what hotel does she think has the very best beds? Her number-one are the beds at the Hilton Istanbul, followed by The Betsy Hotel in Miami Beach and The Plaza in New York City.
