The 10 Hotels with the Most Comfortable Beds in the World
Because at the end of the day, you're really just there for some good shut-eye.
Westin Hotels & Resorts
The hotel company created its signature Westin Heavenly Bed with Simmons almost 20 years ago and hasn’t looked back since. The mattresses have a plush, pillowy top that provides support while remaining oh-so-comfy. Plus, guests can rest their head on a pillow filled with a half-feather, half-down combination just begging you to rest your head on it, then cozy up under a down blanket. After a good night’s sleep on a Westin mattress, try these 17 tips for sleeping better in any hotel.
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts
Fairmont beds are some of the most raved-about on social media, according to an analysis by CNN Travel and Local Measure. Most of its rooms use a Sealy Posturepedic mattress designed especially for its rooms. The layers work together to create a dreamy experience: a foundation that absorbs shock, a support layer that resists body impressions, and a quilted top with plush foam.
Even the hardest-to-please guests will appreciate the Four Seasons, where guests can request a custom topper for their Simmons mattress. Without any special requests, the beds come with a “signature” medium-firmness topper, but you can also request a plush or firm topper instead. If you want to swap it partway through your stay, the hotel is happy to oblige. Of course, it’s what’s underneath that counts too. Under that topper is a GelTouch Foam Center that absorbs heat so you don’t wake up all sweaty, plus pocketed coils that keep you from disturbing your partner when you toss and turn. Sounds way better than the hotel chain with the worst reputation in America.
When you’re paying top dollar for a room, the bed better be exceptional. The Ritz-Carlton has exclusive Stearns & Foster mattresses made with inviting silk and wool. Underneath, gel-infused memory foam keeps you cool while you cozy up under the covers, and individually wrapped coils help the mattress conform to your body instead of just sagging at the middle. Tuck yourself into the 400-thread-count sheets and enjoy. Check out the 16 most luxurious presidential suites around the world.
Conrad Hotels & Resorts
Any Goldilocks guest will flip for the “pillow menus” at Conrad properties. Depending on your location, you could choose anything from a “cold and flu” pillow infused with essential oils to a pillow that promises to ease tension headaches. Some of the pillows even fit with the theme of the city you’re staying in.
Every hotel stay should be an experience fit for a queen, and at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London, that’s exactly what you get. The St. Pancras (along with other U.K. hotels) partners with mattress maker Hypnos, which just so happens to have a royal warrant and makes beds for the royal family. You might not get that same form of royal treatment at other Renaissance locations, but its U.S. hotel beds are equipped with pocketed coils that help it conform to your body and prevent sagging, plus temperature control features that help keep you cool all night.
Depending on which location you stay at, you’ll get one of two mattresses: foam or innerspring. The dense based foam supports you all night, then bounces back into place when you’re finally ready to face the day. The innerspring version is a thick 12 inches tall and is covered with a silky mattress topper that stays consistently fluffy. To top it all off is a down comforter that keeps you at the right temperature, no matter what the season. The pillows have a firm core surrounded by cushy down to keep your head and neck in the ideal position. These are the 10 best-value hotels in America you should also consider.
W Hotels have a couple of different mattresses, but neither is skimping on comfort. Some rooms are outfitted with a firm mattress that promises to keep you from tossing and turning. Complete with the fluffy cotton featherbed layer, the bed will make you say “ahh” the moment you crawl in. Other W rooms come with a Pillow Top mattress. The cloud-like quilted top will draw you in, and the supportive innerspring layer will keep your partner’s nighttime movements where they belong: on the other side of the bed.
In a hotel chain that specializes in long-term stays, the beds better offer some decent shut-eye—and AKA’s does just that. The mattresses have multiple foam layers, providing everything from denseness and durability to gel that offers support and temperature regulation.
This urban hotel chain has a unique take on mattresses, pairing with Suite Sleep to create a 100 percent latex rubber mattress. A cotton cover goes over the foundation, and wool batting adds an extra touch of softness. Don’t miss the 10 most luxurious hotels and resorts in the world.
