Most of us have spent years (cumulatively) staying in hotels. So when we remember something particular about a hotel, it’s a quality that’s either superb or atrocious.
Many hotel beds are average: decent but unremarkable. But the ultra-comfortable beds help provide great memories of a trip. We get better sleep and are more relaxed — which, in turn, makes everything better (well, unless you oversleep and miss a flight or something).
So I’m curious: which hotels (or Airbnbs, etc.) have made you feel like “Wow!” — and are still etched into your memory?
The Two Most Comfortable Hotel Beds I’ve Enjoyed
Two hotels instantly spring to mind when I think of the “most comfortable hotel bed.”
Hotel ZaZa Dallas Uptown
My kingsize bed at the Hotel ZaZa Dallas Uptown was fantastic.
I enjoyed a great night’s sleep — thanks to the plush and cozy bed and bedding. The mattress was a perfect combination of soft and firm.
I remember waking up in the middle of the night. I felt blissfully relaxed and dozed back to sleep.
Everything was great: the mattress, bedding, pillows. (The ZaZa is a very nice hotel in general; I highly recommend it.)
I stayed there about four years ago for a concert photoshoot at the American Airlines Center. Unfortunately, we were in Dallas only one night before heading to the next city. My coworkers and I desperately wanted to spend another night ZaZa simply because the beds were terrific. We had to check out right after lunch and head to Dallas Love Field -and didn’t have time for a nap. 🙁
To this day, those of us on that trip still talk about the awesome Hotel ZaZa Dallas beds.
My wife and I attended her second cousin’s wedding in Sleepy Hollow, New York, back in fall 2011. We stayed at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown.
Good gosh. The bed was uh-mazing.
The rest of the hotel was nice — nothing mind-blowing. But the bed felt downright luxurious. No offense to the Marriott, but I didn’t expect to experience a bed I’d rave about almost ten years later.
The sheets were soft, mattress excellent, and pillows perfect for dreaming.
Honorable Mention: Most Comfortable Pillows
I love Delano Las Vegas.
Whenever my wife and I book a stay there, we talk about the pillows weeks — if not months — in advance.
The bed and sheets are fine. Nothing special, though. I wouldn’t write home (or blog, as it were) about them.
But the pillows are downright heavenly.
I spent an hour one morning calling Mandalay Bay’s housekeeping, gift shop, and operations department trying to source four I order. I took pictures of the pillow’s tags during a Delano stay — but they’re not available for sale to the general public.
