Hotel Bed Week: Where to Buy Your Own Hotel Bed
September 16, 2013 at 3:54 PM | by juliana | ()
All this week, we'll be talking about Hotel Beds--where to buy 'em, how to make 'em, how to trust 'em (just wait and see what we mean) and what to do when the bed isn't enough to send you to Sleepyland. Got a hotel bed question or comment? Send it to us!
Let's face it. The most important part of a hotel stay is the hotel bed . You can have the finest of fine views, the highest in high technology and the fanciest of fancy toiletries but if that bed is hard as a rock, you're going to wake up hating the hotel.
Fortunately, hotels in recent years have put a lot of money into their bed experience not just by adding comfy posture-friendly mattresses but also loading up the pillows and using luxe linens. And several hotels brands are so passionate about their bed offerings, they think you will even want to buy it after you check-out.
We already listed which hotel brands sold their beds back in 2011 but it was time for an update. Consider this your semi-regular mattress flipping.
Keep reading for the list of hotel beds!
