Finding the best hotel bed must be an aspiration of any long distance traveller. I certainly know that a hotel with a comfy bed can help me rest and try to overcome any jet lag.
I’ve been a frequent traveller for over a dozen years which means that I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels and naturally a lot of hotel beds. I’ve had some good experiences and some bad ones. The worst being a night in a bed riddled with bed bugs. That was awful and I didn’t get much sleep that night.
I’ve joined the frequent guest programs of various hotels including Hilton, IHG (Holiday Inn), Clarion and more. However, of all the hotels that I stay in I know that I will always find a comfy bed in the Marriott chain of hotels.
They have a fair range of hotels from the upscale Marriott and Renaissance to mid-tier Springhill Suites. There is also the lower scale Fairfield Inn. Irrespective of which one I stay in the bed is luxurious. I always find them to be firm so large that I have no problem stretching out.
I think the key for me is that the mattress is so deep! They are often foam mattresses which make an adequately firm and consistent pad to rest on. I’ve yet to be in a position not to find a comfy bed in any of the Marriott hotels.
Whilst the mattress is the key for me but there are other features to. Hyper allergenic bedding is a big plus since I’m allergic to dust mites. The sheets are really luxurious in how they feel and the whole bedding set up is quality.
I did notice a few years ago that not only do the Marriott provide such bedding in their hotels but they also sell it too. You can take part of the hotel home with you. You’ll find the details at www.shopmarriott.com
I must admit that the items are not cheap but then again this a reflection of the quality involved. You get what you pay for. I’d love to have a Marriott style bed at home. I even wonder if when Rihanna sang her ballad “California King Bed” she was thinking of the Marriott bed?
On the plus side as a Marriott Rewards card holder (the frequent guest loyalty program) I could redeem some points for gift cards which I can use in the online shop.
I don’t know exactly which are the best hotel beds in the world. However I do know that with Marriott I consistently get a high quality comfy bed which I never have a problem sleeping in.
