We are outfitting a new hotel and will need between 100 and 120 mattresses.
What would you suggest, and can I buy them through you.
They will be going to San Francisco.
Almost all hotels are featuring "Name Brand" mattresses....mostly, Simmons Beautyrest.
The advantage of the Simmons Beautyrest, is the individually pocketed coil unit, with each coil moving independently from one another.
This type of coil system contours to the shape of the body, which maintains the natural alignment of the spine.
Almost everyone finds this type of support to be the most comfortable.
Simmons does have a hospitality division, where you can buy them at wholesale prices.
The problem is with longevity.
Frankly, I don't understand why hotels would go to the expense of having to replace these mattresses every few years.
The coils in the Simmons Beautyrest are made of raw steel...not tempered steel.
But, the worst part is all the memory foam that is used in all of the mattresses made by all of the "Name Brands'.
Memory foam is the worst upholstery material ever invented.
It's sole purpose is to cause mattresses to need frequent replacing.
It feels good when new, but that changes quickly....beginning to change within months and shot within a few years.
The diabolical part of memory foam is that it returns enough, when you get off of the mattress as to never meet the criteria needed to get authorization to exchange it. It is designed to sell more mattresses, more frequently, to the same people.
AND, as if that weren't bad enough, it consists of 61 different chemicals...some of which, are toxic. Formaldehyde and Benzene, being two of the worst.
Memory foam creates a health hazard for anyone breathing in the toxic fumes from the off gassing that goes with it....your guests and staff.
Being a temperature sensitive material, it absorbs your body's heat and reflects it back to you. In short, it sleeps hot.
There is a much better way to go about all this. A way that costs less, is far more durable...and safe. You just have to know where to look.
I'm glad you contacted me about this.
Normally, I don't deal with hotels, directly, as they would normally go straight to one of the name brand manufacturers for this.
And, you wouldn't want to buy from me or any other retailer, directly, either. The cost would be far greater than it needs to be.
So, I'll be directing you to the manufacturers. This will reduce your costs dramatically.
I've included the email addresses of the people you'll contact to complete your order.
The first is the Wolf Mattresses.
Wolf was established in 1873. It is the oldest mattress manufacturer in the country that has been continually owned by the same family.
I've been dealing with them for some years, now. The quality is high. The service is excellent. The prices are more than reasonable.
This mattress uses an individually pocketed coil unit...like the popular Simmons Beautyrest.
The differences are stark.
It's a two sided mattress, while all of the name brand mattresses are one sided.
The steel, from which the coils are made, is tempered steel for greater resiliency and durability.
The upholstery is plant based polyurethane foam...not chemical based...and carries the CertiPUR certification for safety.
This plant based poly foam has none of the problems associated with memory foam.
This particular mattress is a bit unique and strikes me as the perfect choice for use in a hotel.
It allows you to accommodate anyone's idea of comfort.
It's plush on one side and firm on the other side. Normally, you would use it with the plush side up, as that works best for most people.
But, should you have a guest with a very bad back, who needs a firm mattress, your housekeeping staff can easily accommodate that guest,
buy simply flipping the mattress over.
This mattress is much higher in quality than anything being produced by the name brand manufacturers.
With the name brands now owned by investment groups, profit...and not quality...is their focus.
Here is a link to the Wolf Two Sided mattresses. The Dual Comfort model is new, and not yet on our website.
Old Fashioned made Two Sided Mattress that you can flip. Strong coil unit and NO Memory Foam. Durable for Plus Sized People. Works with Adjustable Bed Bases.
The thing that breaks down the upholstery layers of any mattress, is moisture getting into the mattress.
THIS, happens normally through normal perspiration...not to mention the unspeakable things that people do to mattresses that don't belong to them.
To go along with these mattresses, I suggest a waterproof mattress protector.
But, not just any waterproof mattress protector...as many sleep hot and make crinkly noises.
Danican, a Denmark based company, makes the best waterproof mattress protector I've found...and I've tested several at home and with family.
Their Silver Tech model is made of natural cotton infused with silver, which is what keeps it sleeping cool.
They fit on easily, and when washed repeatedly in hot water, it doesn't shrink. (Do Not Dry on High Heat).
More importantly, it doesn't fail.
It has been through the acid test...literally...by me and by a hotel in LA...The Ontario Airport Inn.
I suggest one for each mattress and some back up for when they are being laundered.
Here is a link to those:
Danican Mattress Protectors. All-Natural Waterproof Mattress Protectors Allergen Proof Dust Mite Proof Easy Fit protects mattresses up to 18″ deep.
Keeping the mattresses and the pillows clean and dry will maximize their life and your investment.
