I live in Chicago and am interested in finding, "testing", and ultimately purchasing a Sealy Posturepedic Encore Plush Pillowtop queen hotel mattress, or something equivalent.
What advice could you offer?
Thanks in advance, Chris
"Encore" is a name used at hotels. You can buy them through hotels, but you'll pay twice what they cost at retail.
At retail stores, the model name for a comparable mattress will be different at every store.
The best way to shop for it, is to 1) Ask for a Classic Posturepedic & 2) ask for it the way Sealy identifies it...by the level they give it.
In this case, you'll ask for a Level A-3 Posturepedic in a Plush Pillowtop.
Mattresses come from the factory with a paper label denizened to the side...with that information.
If that label has been removed, I'd be leery to believe that the salesman knows...as they are told very little...other than how to close the sale.
You may have to ask to speak to a manager, who should have that info on spec sheets in his office.
We stopped carrying Sealy/S&F since they were bought by Tempurpedic in 2013.
However, I do have a friend in the business that carries that model.
Here is a link to that mattress on his website.

An Important Note:
Any kind of moisture, be it from spills, accidents or perspiration causes a mattress to wear prematurely.
