Best hotel beds and where to buy them
(CNN) — Pillow menus, crisp linens, cooling mattresses, blackout curtains — hotels know a thing or two about sleep-through-your-alarm-good bedrooms.
Of course, even the dreamiest of hotel rooms can’t quite compete with the comforts of home. But, as it turns out, you can have the best of both worlds: high-quality hotel beds, delivered to your door.
Over the past few years, several hotels and resorts have begun selling their specially designed bed frames, mattresses, pillows and linens to guests.
The analysts reviewed more than 200,000 Twitter, Instagram and Facebook posts regarding hotel beds across Asia, Europe and North America.
Among the most talked-about on social media were Fairmont Hotels and Resorts and the InterContinental Hotels and Resorts, with travelers ranking firmness, spaciousness and cleanliness as the most important indicators of quality.
While InterContinental’s plush beds aren’t for sale (at least, not yet), Fairmont sells its customized Sealy mattresses online.

But unlike other hotel groups, each hotel’s mattress and bedding is unique to the Peninsula location.
At The Peninsula Beverly Hills, for example, deep sleep will be owed in part to the hotel’s Simmons Westbury Recharge Plush mattresses, which can be ordered directly from the supplier with help from the hotel.
Inside the plush fabric, there’s an EverNu replaceable mattress top, Aircool technology to regulate temperature and pocketed coil technology for added support.
That’s just the beginning: You can also expect three layers of quilting, a layer of Energy Foam coil support and a BeautyEdge foam encasement — all mattress lingo for “sweet, sweet dreams.”
