Hotel Mattress Brands and Types

If you’ve ever stayed in a hotel while traveling you’ve slept in a bed that was designed to be comfortable to a wide variety of people. Hotels have long used double-sided mattresses, also known as 'flippable', to extend the lifespan of a mattress. In this article, we'll explore some of the mattresses commonly used in hotels today.

What Hotels Look for in a Mattress

Here are some criteria that make a good hotel mattress:

  1. Double-sided. Most mattresses sold today have only one side. About twenty years ago, mattress manufacturers changed from selling a two-sided mattress to a one-sided mattress as a cost-cutting measure. Many hotels prefer the two-sided design because they can flip and rotate the mattress to improve durability and comfort. But as more hotels integrate adjustable base beds into their rooms, one-sided mattresses are growing in popularity and preference.

  2. Edge support. The edge of a mattress goes through daily wear and tear. It is critical that this part of the mattress is reinforced for durability and to allow you to sleep closer to the edge of the mattress without the feeling of rolling out.

  3. Durable coil system. The coil system in a mattress can wear out over time. Hotels look for a tried and true coil design made from heat-tempered steel.

  4. Medium comfort. Mattresses range in feel from hard as the floor to soft like a pillow. Hotels try to pick a mattress in the middle of this spectrum to please the widest array of sleepers possible.
