Hotel Mattress Marketing Sells Me

During our recent trip to Kentucky, we stayed at the Crowne Plaza Campbell House. When I got in the room, it was quite nice, and I noticed an advertising-type flyer on the bed advertising that it was a Tempur-Pedic Swedish mattress. Big deal, I thought.

A few hours later I returned to the room, and I found out why they had the flyer. What a mattress! I cannot quite explain it, but the Tempur-Pedic mattress kind of cradles you. They say the mattress does this by "conforming to and supporting the body perfectly." It does.

The advertising guy in me wonders what the deal was to place the flyer. Were the beds cheaper if the hotel placed the flyers? Normally, you wouldn't think much about a comfortable bed. We had great beds at the hotel we stayed at in San Diego in May 2003. But that's all I know.

Thanks to the flyer, I know the Tempur-Pedic Swedish Sleep System. The in-room ad broke through the clutter and left a lasting impression.

Cannot thank you enough for this review. I am sitting here in distress worrying about the delivery of our Tempurdic this Saturday. I worried that we made a mistake in chosing this mattress, but it seemed to comfortable in the stores. So, your non-biased review has really help quiet my concern. I wait with anticipation now!

Its amazing how quickly a single change can impact your life. A couple of days ago I changed my mattress from a sprung one to a memory foam mattress. As soon as I got into bed the first night I could feel the difference! It kind of "moulds" itself to you and thus feels more like its supporting you rather than you lying on top of a slap of springs. Very happy with it.

Hotel mattresses are the worst thing I ever use.
