What mattresses do hotels use?

Hotel mattresses can be hybrid, memory foam, or innerspring varieties.

While innerspring mattresses have sturdy coils to provide the necessary bounce and support, hybrid mattresses have a layer of soft foam in between coils to give you a more comfortable experience.

Some hotels use high-end memory foam mattresses, like our Zephyr Mattress, which have antimicrobial memory foam to deliver a memorable experience.

Many hotels offer a memory foam mattress topper that provides extra softness and absorbs motion, allowing you uninterrupted sleep.

One popular brand used is the Polysleep Memory Foam Antimicrobial Mattress Topper, made from antimicrobial memory foam. It provides the comfort and support of a high-end memory foam topper and protects visitors from bacteria.
