Here's a weird one- Marriott mattress toppers. Anyone have one?
Posted by: dmann

On my 5 cities in 5 days midwest tour last week, I ended up at 3 Marriott properties. One Marriott and two Courtyards. Once again, I was amazed at how comfortable their beds are.

I think I narrowed it down to the mattress topper they use. It seems to make all the difference. Before I shell out $170, anyone have one or something else they'd like to recommend?

BTW, memory foam is NOT an option because of the heat issue. I also have to stay away from down because I am allergic. Yes, in this one area I am high maintenance! smiling smiley

Why did I know I'd get some sort of response from you? Of course, I figured it would be related to the hot sleeping...

PS- you are joking, right?

Just so I understand, are you saying that you can get the exact same kind that Marriott uses for $170? Or that that's how much you expect to spend for something similar?

Come on, woman, explain yourself!

DM,

You're not crazy. My wife and I were at a Courtyard this summer outside of Boston and really liked the one on the bed. I asked (it was a brand-new facility, open only a month) and was told they were:



I bet that's the one that you want. It was really nice. smiling smiley



Good Luck!

Oy vey. Marriott sells their toppers on their website (just like Sheraton, Hyatt and the other "upscale" chains sell their own lines of bedding.) It is $170 for a queen size topper.

[www.shopmarriott.com]

If I had enough Marriott points, I use them to buy one and be done with it, but I don't so I am hoping to find a more economical but equally comfortable option.

Better? smiling smiley

I never joke about someone's sleep. Their sleeping clothing, position, partner/s, yes.

Do you know what there is about it that makes it so comfortable for you? I have a topper that I got several years ago at one of the department stores. It, too, is filled with polyester, although I don't know that it has "cluster fibers." (I don't even know what a cluster fiber is!) If you haven't checked local stores, you might want to see if they have something like the Marriott model. I love mine.

AD- It is soft but not so soft that my back and neck are aching in the morning. It must "breathe" somehow because temperature wise it is much more comfortable than my own bed at home (I use good sheets at home, so I don't think that is the issue.)

Not sure that is the best description, but it's all I have right now!

I stayed at the Marriott in Hartford last month, and they had great beds. I'm pretty tempted to get that topper myself.

Wal-Mart has some good and inexpensive ones...

[www.walmart.com]

I got a full memory foam 8 inch one and am very satisfied with it.

It was 20% of a Temperputic price.

You can order online and have it delivered to your local store for free.

What ever you get you should let it air out for a few days before using it!

dmann and I are concerned about her sweating in bed. That's why the memory foam is not an option.

There's good reasons to sweat in bed, and bad reasons.

We got a great topper at Bed Bath Beyond. Don't remember the brand or price (20% off coupon helped on that). It doesn't retain heat and I think that it's as comfortable as those I've slept on at Marriott's. Plus, I think it's returnable if you don't like it.

dmann, my GF feels the same way about the beds at the Hampton Inn (her employers hotel of choice).
She is still trying to figure out how to put the entire king size bed in her suitcase.
