Have you ever wondered why you enjoy a much better
night's sleep in a hotel rather than at home? This seems to happen regardless
of whether you are on holiday or staying in a hotel for business. The answer is
simple - the bed and mattress that you are sleeping on is usually of a very high
Obviously the main thing you are likely to be doing in a
hotel is sleeping; it's paramount for hotels to give you everything you need
for a good night's sleep. Hotels can buy higher grade manufacturers than many
households because they buy in bulk. They are looking for two things when they
buy mattresses - comfort and durability. Ultimately the better quality the
mattress the more durable it will be so those factors tend to go hand in hand.
Any high end hotel and most mid-range hotels buy the
highest quality mattress and bed frame they can. Offering comfort to guests is
one of the most crucial ways to remain competitive. It's also about the way a
bed looks. The higher quality the frame and the mattress the better the bed
will look when it has been made with freshly laundered, ironed linen.
Whilst some of us enjoy a nice firm mattress others like
softer beds. Hotels solve this problem by choosing a
firm mattress with a soft

keep spare blankets and pillows and can be moved easily when necessary.
Hotels choose beds with customers in mind - you can
depend on the fact that whatever choice a top hotel has made, it is of an
excellent quality. They tend to choose a firm, quality mattress with a soft
topping as well as a divan base. One of the reasons you get a good night's
sleep in a hotel is also because they choose quality linen with a high thread
count and freshly launder them for each stay.
