The secret to a good night’s sleep is in the mattress. The quality of your mattress can have a huge impact on how rested you are able to feel.
You may think that it doesn’t matter what kind of bed you’re sleeping on, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. We’ll share with you some helpful tips on why hotel beds are so comfortable.
So What Makes Hotel Beds So Comfortable?
Hotel beds are designed with your comfort in mind. There’s a reason why you feel so rested and refreshed when you wake up after sleeping on one! The mattress, the pillows, and even the duvet all work together to create that perfect sleep experience. Here is what makes hotel beds superior:
It’s no secret that some people sleep better on their stomachs, others prefer to be side-sleepers (and more likely use two pillows) and there are those who only feel comfortable sleeping on their backs. Hotel mattresses offer a variety of softness levels so you can find the perfect firmness level for your individual preferences.
Hotel mattresses are constructed with supportive coils, usually pocketed coil springs. These coils “bounce back” when pressure is applied and allow you to sleep in a variety of positions without any motion disturbance from your sleeping partner.
Hotel mattresses don’t have the same level of density as those found at home (usually they’re a bit softer). However, this is because hotel beds are stuffed with visco-elastic foam. This type of foam has the perfect amount of giving and support so you can sleep through the night without waking up in pain or feeling exhausted from sleeping on a stiff mattress.
Do Hotel Beds Feel Different Than My Own Bed?
If you’re used to sleeping on a soft mattress at home, then yes. Hotel beds are designed with the needs of people who sleep in multiple locations around the world and need a bed that can be slept on by any number of individuals.
Hotel Beds Are The Perfect Temperature
Sleep experts have found that most people prefer their bedrooms to be somewhere between 60 and 67 degrees. Most homes are usually too hot or cold for comfortable sleep.
Hotel beds, on the other hand, offer a microfiber duvet that is designed to regulate your body temperature so you don’t wake up feeling sweaty in the middle of the night.
The hotel bedding also offers an added benefits because it’s been washed and dried a minimum of 100 times so it won’t carry any allergens or germs that might disrupt your sleep.
Does The Bed Frame Matter?
A good quality bed frame offers support for the mattress while keeping you from feeling like you’re sleeping on top of the box spring (which can cause back pain). There are two types of bed frames: box spring or platform.
This type of frame is the classic metal and wood design that we’re all used to seeing in our own homes. It’s usually paired with a mattress but some people prefer this type of setup with other foam mattresses as well. Most importantly, it provides support for your back and ensures that your mattress doesn’t sag over time.
This is the most popular option for hotel beds because it provides support while keeping the room uncluttered. It’s also easy to transport and assemble so you can put it together yourself without any help from a partner or friend.
What Type Of Mattress Is Best For Me?
That’s the million-dollar question. While there are many factors to consider (like your budget and how you plan on using it), most people can’t tell a difference between a hotel mattress and one that they’ve purchased at their local mattress store. You’ll need to consider whether or not coils, foam density, etc. are essential to your decision.
There are a variety of coil systems available on the market today that can provide different levels of support and firmness, so you should be able to find one within your price range. If you’re looking for more softness (and less bounce), then look into foam or memory foams which offer even pressure relief throughout your body.
How Can I Get That Hotel Sleep Experience In My Own House?
While you can’t exactly replicate the hotel experience at home, there are a few things that will help.
The first step is to find your perfect mattress and pairing it with pillows designed for optimal comfort and support. There are many types of mattresses on the market today so take some time to read up on reviews and what other sleepers are saying about their experience.
The second step is to get the right duvet for your body type and preferences so you can adjust it throughout the night as needed. Since hotel sheets don’t usually have a duvet, we recommend getting one that’s made of silk or microfiber fabric which will keep you at just the right temperature through the night.
Finally, consider investing in a comforter designed for optimal comfort and support so you won’t wake up with aches or pains like you would on an old mattress or if you use your own sheets at home.
