Best Hotel Mattress Reviews

We go over the best hotel mattress to buy.

Last Updated: July 8, 2020

Over the past few years we have reviewed a bed from nearly every mattress brand out there. Along the way, we have stumbled across a few that are similar to a hotel mattress and deserve to be at the Four Seasons, The W, or some other expensive hotel. Often times, the hotel brands do not disclose the specific mattress they use or its exact material makeup. All consumers know is that they tend to like mattresses from the Westin, Hyatt, Hilton, etc. and they want one for themselves.

The Best Hotel Mattress To Buy Online

For frequent travelers, there’s something extra special about a hotel mattress. For some reason, it’s more comfortable than the bed they have back home even if it’s not as expensive. In this review we tried to match up high quality beds with those seen at various hotel chains. As we mentioned, hotel operators aren’t always forthcoming with the exact mattress they use, so we tried to pick suitable replacements that are as nice as, if not nicer than, what you’d sleep on at Davenport hotels, as an example.

For those of you that are saying to yourself “Land the plane already,” below is a bullet point list of the best hotel mattresses, according to our editors. Just to reiterate, these beds are similar to those seen at these large hotel chains, but are not the exact same beds. For example, we might say “Four Seasons,” but a more apt description is “similar to mattress collection seen at Four Seasons hotels.” We just tried to keep the descriptors shorter since this is a long review.

So, now that you’ve seen the list, you should be aware of the fact that finding the right mattress typically isn’t as simple as getting the name and making a purchase. You should also factor in your weight, feel preferences, sleeping position and more. Certain hotel mattress collections, such as those from Saatva and WinkBed, come in multiple firmness options, so you can choose your favorite. Others, however, take the stance that a medium firmness is right for most people, so they just make the one comfort profile.

About Our Picks

Now that there are literally dozens of online mattress brands, there’s no need to settle for a bed that you don’t like or that doesn’t come with favorable policies. All of the beds featured on this list are of hotel quality (i.e. they’re very nice) and come with free shipping and a 100+ night trial period. Even more, the vast majority of our picks include free returns, so you’re not out a dime if you choose to return your bed.

Our goal is to align you with the right hotel mattress, even if it’s not the exact same bed you’ll see at your favorite hotel chain. You should also know that no one paid us to include, or not include, particular beds on this list. We selected all of these beds independently, and have provided reviews elsewhere on our site.

About Helix Luxe: This is a coil bed with a pillow top, but it’s not quite that simple. The entire Helix mattress collection is designed to be semi-custom, meaning you can go through a quick sleep quiz on their website to get a model that best fits your personal preferences. They make several different firmness and support options, allowing Helix to have a bed for every type of sleeper.

Similar to W Hotel and Davenport Hotel mattresses (possibly better)

The picture above features the Helix Moonlight Luxe mattress, which is our favorite. All of them feature individual branding and have handles, a pillow top, thick gauge coils, and a breathable cover.

W Hotel Mattress

In this section, let’s explore how Helix Luxe is similar to the W Hotel mattress. Again, it’s not the exact same mattress, but here are a few key features that they have in common:

  • Hybrid design with pocketed coils
  • Pillow top
  • Made in the United States
  • Available in queen, king, and Cal king sizes

Davenport Hotel Mattress

Now that we’ve covered the W Hotel mattress, we should explain how Helix Luxe and the Davenport Hotel mattress are similar. These similarities include:

  • Pillow top mattress
  • Plush feel (Helix also offers other firmness levels)
  • Thick mattress (Davenport is 16″ while Helix is 14″)
  • Full, queen, king, and Cal king sizes

Beyond all of that, it is important to remember that Helix Luxe comes with a 100-night risk-free trial period and free returns.

About Saatva: If you’ve done any research online for luxury mattress brands, Saatva has no doubt popped up. This is an innerspring bed that has two layers of coils and a Euro top cover. Not only that, Saatva is available in the following comfort profiles: Plush Soft, Luxury Firm, and Firm. For the money, it’s hard to find a better bed than Saatva Classic.

Saatva uses innersprings as its base and pocketed coils for an additional layer of support. Its main comfort layers are memory foam and a plush pillow top. You can see as well that Saatva has an off-white cover. Interestingly, it is an organic cotton cover that’s one of our favorites.

Four Seasons Hotel Mattress

Now that we’ve gone through a mini review of Saatva, let’s explain how it’s similar to the Four Seasons hotel mattress.

  • Multiple firmness levels
  • All major US sizes offered
  • Memory foam added for comfort
  • Coils for support
  • Quilted foam inside pillow top

There’s no denying that the Four Seasons hotel mattress is nice, but it’s hard to find an area where it’s considerably better than Saatva. In fact, Saatva comes with a 120-trial period and modest return fees.

About Bear Hybrid: This is a thick and comfy pillow top mattress from one of the top online brands. It has 8″ coils, gel memory foam, and other comfort foams. Perhaps the best thing about Bear Hybrid—besides its accommodating feel—is its Celliant cover. “What is Celliant?” you might say. Well, it’s a material that apparently can help to improve sleep quality and recovery times, among other things. You can learn more about Celliant on Bear’s website.

Bear Hybrid comes in just one firmness level (around a medium), but can accommodate all sleeping styles. And, thanks to those 8″ pocketed coils, it’s a highly supportive mattress.

Hilton Hotel Mattress

In this section we will touch on the main areas of overlap with Bear Hybrid and the Hilton mattress:

  • Queen, king, and Cal king sizes
  • Pillow top
  • Coil supports
  • Made in the United States
  • Added edge support

We should also note that the Hilton hotel mattress is actually made by Serta.

Double Tree Hotel Mattress

As you might have guessed by now, the Double Tree hotel mattress is similar to that of Hilton since Hilton owns Double Tree. In fact, from what we can learn, they are the exact same mattress. As such, the commonalities listed above will equally apply to the Double Tree mattress.

About WinkBed: If there is one brand online that makes us think of a luxury hotel mattress, it’s WinkBed. They offer three different beds on their website, but their classic mattress could be the nicest bed sold online. It’s extra supportive, but has a giant fluffy pillow top that is made in part of a plant-based tencel fiber. You can try WinkBed in a Softer, Luxury Firm, and Firmer feel profile, which is why we say that they make a bed for all sleeping styles.

If the overall look of the mattress doesn’t impress you, surely the support will. WinkBed has two layers of coils that allow it to support all body types, including heavy individuals.

Marriott Hotel Mattress

While we consider WinkBed to be a nicer mattress than the one you’ll see at a Marriott hotel, they nonetheless look somewhat similar. As an example, they both have a fluffy pillow top and they both offer a medium-firm comfort profile.

Hyatt Hotel Mattress

There isn’t a whole lot of information about the mattress Hyatt uses across its various hotels, but according to Travel & Leisure, Hyatt Grand uses a 13″ pillow top mattress. WinkBed is somewhat similar, though, it’s more like 14.5″ thick and is almost certainly more supportive.

About Nest Alexander: This is one of our favorite hybrid mattresses, especially for side sleepers (even though they do make other firmness levels). It has pocketed coils, various comfort foams, and an ultra-plush cover. Nest Alexander can even be split vertically to offer two different firmness levels on the same mattress. Nest Bedding is so confident in this bed—and their others—that they back it with a lifetime warranty and comfort replacement guarantee.

Nest Alexander Hybrid is the type of bed that people nestle into—it’s a cozy mattress, so to speak. It’s definitely not short on comfort.

Sheraton Hotel Mattress

While Nest Alexander isn’t exactly like the Sheraton mattress, they do have a few things in common. For starters, both are pillow top mattresses with coils. Even more, they are made in the United States and are around 13″ thick. Ultimately, though, the reason we selected Nest Alexander Hybrid as the replacement to the Sheraton hotel mattress is that they both have a plush, soft feel (if you get the Medium or Plush version from Nest Bedding).

Westin Hotel Mattress

Since both Westin and Sheraton are the high end brands from Marriott, they have essentially the same mattresses. In fact, if you go to the Sheraton or Westin hotel mattress site they describe the beds the same way and even have virtually the same shopping experience. In other words, if you like the Westin or Sheraton hotel mattress, you might want to consider Nest Bedding Alexander Hybrid.

About IDLE Sleep Hybrid: There are relatively few flippable mattresses on the market, but IDLE Sleep makes some of the best. Their flagship mattress not only has coils, but also comes in both a Medium or Luxury Firm. Overall, the bed has a soft, comfortable feel, but you can still tell that it has plenty of support thanks to the coils.

The bed sells for a reasonable price is very accommodating for all sleep styles. We recommend the Medium model for side and combo sleepers, and the Luxury Firm to back and stomach sleepers.

Wynn Hotel Mattress

The reason we selected IDLE Sleep Hybrid is that it’s double-sided, just like the beds featured in Wynn hotels. Now, there are notable differences (mostly aesthetic) between the two beds, but if you’re interested in the Wynn hotel mattress, but would like to pay less IDLE Hybrid is a nice option. Wynn hotels use a bed from Sealy that has a pillow top on both sides—that’s fairly similar to what you’ll see from IDLE Sleep.

Omni Hotel Mattress

You’ll notice that the Omni hotel mattress is similar to that of Wynn in that it’s flippable. Omni, however, uses Serta mattresses. Even so, given the flippable feature, IDLE Hybrid is a quality stand in that comes with an 18-month risk-free trial period. Having said that, the Omni mattress is actually cheaper if you opt out of getting the mattress foundation.

About IDLE Sleep Hybrid: There are relatively few flippable mattresses on the market, but IDLE Sleep makes some of the best. Their flagship mattress not only has coils, but also comes in both a Medium or Luxury Firm. Overall, the bed has a soft, comfortable feel, but you can still tell that it has plenty of support thanks to the coils.

How We Picked This List

There was some legwork involved in the making of this list. We started by going hotel by hotel and tried to learn as much as we could about their respective mattress. In some cases we had to call customer service just to figure out whether a bed had coils or not. We then compared each bed to a mattress that we’ve reviewed in the past.

Our goal was to find the right bed and then select a comparable product that was more affordable, more widely available, or had more consumer friendly policies. For instance, most hotel mattress brands do not offer free returns or a trial period. Most of the beds we selected, however, do. We were trying to think from a consumer intent standpoint. In other words, let’s try to find a mattress that is as good as (if not better than) the one featured a hotel and tell consumers about it.

Best Hotel Mattress Brands

Most of this post focuses on beds that we highly respect and consider to be nice enough for a luxury hotel operator. In this section, however, we assembled a not-exhaustive list of the best hotel mattress brands:

  • Serta-Simmons
  • Beautyrest
  • Sealy
  • Saatva
  • WinkBeds
  • Helix Sleep
  • Brentwoo Home
  • Bear
  • Nest Bedding
  • IDLE Sleep

The largest suppliers of hotel mattresses seem to be Serta-Simmons (owns Beautyrest) and TempurPedic-Sealy International. We noticed they have beds in Fairmont Hotels, Wyndham Hotels, and plenty of others. Typically the hotel chains are purchasing directly from the brand or a distributor, not a retail store.

FAQs

What is a hotel mattress?

A hotel mattress is a bed that’s specially designed for a hotel, or that looks like it belongs in a hotel. Typically, these are innerspring mattresses. Some will have a pillow top, and others will just feature coils and a layer of foam.

What are the best hotel mattress brands?

There are only a handful of brands that actually makes mattresses featured at hotels. These include Sealy, Serta-Simmons, and Beautyrest. That said, there are plenty of online mattress brands that make beds really similar to those featured in hotels, including Saatva, WinkBed, Bear Mattress, Nest Bedding, etc.

How much does a hotel mattress cost?

Most of the hotel beds are pretty expensive ($2,000 or more), especially if you buy them through the hotel’s online shop.

Why do I sleep better on a hotel mattress?

Most of the time, this has to do with the fact that the hotel mattress is designed for longevity. They are extra supportive and typically firm. You mattress at home is probably old and softer. If you’re dealing with back pain, you might consider purchasing a firmer, more supportive mattress.
