Why is it that some finer hotel beds feel so comfortable? Someone told me that they put a thin blanket or something under the sheet. I don't know if its the mattress cover. We love a firm bed, but there is something totally cozy about the finer hotel beds. Hopefully you can solve the mystery.

Hotels tend to use a higher thread count in their sheets. Cheap sheets come in at around 250 threads per inch, top hotels will use 1000 threadcount sheets. These sheets can get pretty pricey so keep an eye out at sales.

Other reasons they are more comfortable is because the sheets are always clean and somebody else gets to make the bed :)

I recently stayed at the Hyatt Regency in St. Louis. It was the most comfortable bed I'd ever slept on at a hotel. The room had a catalog by which you could buy things identical to those used in their hotel rooms.


The mattress (extra thick, pillow top) could be purchased for around $2000, the sheets (top and bottom) were a couple hundred each and pillow cases were like $50.00 per pair. There was also a thick pad on top of the mattress. I guess comfort really is expensive.

Maybe it is a set of really nice, high quality all cotton sheets with a high thread count. ?? I'm not sure, really. I've had really comfortable and I've had "normally comfortable" beds at hotels.

Most motels or hotels buy a motel grade mattress. They can buy them much cheaper than the retail mattress in the stores.


The finer hotels buy a more expensive mattress, and use better quality of sheets and mattress pads. A really good mattress pad can make a bed so much more comfortable.
