I am certain that this is not the first time you have received this complaint and request for best path forward. We have a Sleep Number Foam Mattress, a truly regretful purchase.
My wife and I both hate it. We feel we were victims of the marketing and hype.
I have spent many nights traveling and always attempt to get into a Westin hotel for the ‘Heavenly Bed’ experience and the beautiful uninterrupted night's sleep I get there..
What do you recommend ?
I sleep predominantly on my left side, but am a restless sleeper.
I am subject to back and hip pain from this mattress, as is my wife.
My wife and I like a firm but soft mattress for our sleeping experience.
Should we purchase the Natura of Canada Greenspring Liberta Ultra Plush Mattress for the absolutely best sleeping experience? Or is there another suggested path forward?
All the Best, Don
The Westin Heavenly Bed is a Simmons Beautyrest.
However, Simmons has been sold to investors.
The quality is not what it was.
What makes that mattress so supportive and comfortable is the individually pocketed coil system, which contours to the shape of the body and maintains the natural alignment of the spine.
Older models were upholstered with polyurethane foams.
Today, it’s memory foam.
Memory foam is specifically designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing, as well as off gassing the toxic chemicals from which memory foam is made. It’s the worst upholstery material ever invented.
The key, for you, is in getting a mattress with that coil system and no memory foam.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring is the best we carry, upholstered with Talalay Latex.
Their ultra plush model is the most comfortable of them…and what my wife and I sleep on at home.

My husband and I had the best night sleep we’ve had in years while staying at a hotel.
The tags on the mattress indicated that it is a Simmons Beautyrest Classic.
We want to purchase a mattress as close to this as possible.
We’ve just made so many mattress purchase mistakes in the past few years, that we want one that will last.
Thank you, Sydney
Since that mattress was made, Simmons was purchased by an investment group that now uses toxic chemical memory foam upholstery that wears quickly, sleeps hot and off gasses the toxic chemicals from which memory foam is made.
In short, you won’t be able to find a Simmons Beautyrest mattress as well made as that one was.
All of the name brands have been sold. They and many other brands use memory foam for the purpose of enhancing profits.
Memory foam is specifically designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing, and not under the terms of the warranty.
Memory foam has created a boon for the industry and a nightmare for the consumer.
It’s the source of all your purchase mistakes.
More mattresses are being sold to the same people much more frequently than in past years when most mattresses were well made…like that Classic Beautyrest was.
What made that mattress so comfortable was the individually pocketed coils, which contour to the shape of the body and maintain the natural alignment of the spine.
And, it had no memory foam in it.
The Wolf Brolynn Old Fashioned Two Sided Mattress in Plush is as close as you’ll get to matching the specifications of that old Beautyrest.
