Chamberloft Is The Ultimate Hotel Pilow

Why Are Chamberloft Pillows The Ultimate?

Chamberloft pillows are the ultimate in hotel pillows. But why? How are they able to provide luxurious softness, while also maintaining a lofty structure?

Traditional pillows provide either one, but not both.

If a pillow is soft, it will generally compress down and provide little or no loft at all. If a pillow is stuffed with enough material to provide structure, it can feel like sleeping on a brick.

A plain feather pillow can feel really stiff. So, if you’re a back sleeper, your head gets bent at an upward angle.

A plain polyester pillow feels soft but doesn’t provide much integrity. So, if you’re a side-sleeper, your head bends at a downward angle.

Both are a pain in the neck – literally!

Chamberloft pillows use a feather inner core to provide structure, and squishy down-alternative polyester in the outer core to provide soft comfort.

This basically creates a 3-layer pillow. It provides the density needed for proper neck positioning, but with the comfort needed to fall asleep, and stay asleep.

Anti-microbial & Durable

The Chamberloft pillows are designed with hospitality in mind, and need to be very durable – that includes dust mite resistance. 

The outer pillowcase is woven with a fabric very similar to a pillow protector to provide resistance. The piped and double-needle sewn edges provide durability.

They ensure that the seams won’t come apart and that the fill stays inside – where it belongs.

More Chamberloft Features

3 chambered pillows, like the Chamberloft, offer a superior pillow by combining two common fill ingredients – feathers and polyester – to make a hybrid pillow.

This hybrid style of pillow solves a few problems that normal pillows suffer from:

 

Allergies

A considerable number of people suffer from animal product allergies – including down or feathers.

Goose down or down and feather blend pillows are probably the most popular choice among pillows, but many people can’t use them. 

Being around goosedown or feathers can make their nose run, their eyes itch, or induce sneeze attacks.

Not to mention that feathers can often emit a barnyard odor, which definitely isn’t pleasant.

Chamberloft pillows don’t have that problem. The feathers in a Chamberloft pillow are sterilized to remove all of the dust and pollen that are the actual source of the allergies.

The polyester that wraps around the feather core further insulates you from the feathers.

 

Loft and soft

As mentioned earlier, chamber pillows offer a combination of both superior loft and a squishy softness that other types of pillows just can’t match.

Polyester alone tends to compress far more than any other material. Even a firm pillow will compress. What they offer in silky softness, is negated by how far your head sinks into the pillow. 

Feathers are probably the best material in terms of support. They compact significantly less than down or polyfill, yet do have some give.

This is one reason some people don’t like foam pillows. They either have too much give, and offer no support, or they have no give and feel like a brick.

By combining the two, we get the soft squishiness of polyester, but the support of feathers. 

I’ve had many customers, who despite having firm pillows at home, sleep so much better at a hotel with the Chamberloft pillows. A pillow’s firmness (or density) is just half of the equation – loft matters as well. 

 

And if the feathers are encased in a nylon enclosure – that just compounds the problem.

With a chamber pillow, the two layers of polyester muffle the feathers – reducing the noise considerably.

 

Cost

Both feathers and polyester are economical options. Quality down and memory foam pillows can often cost $100 or more. A good feather/polyester pillow, like the Chamberloft, will cost a fraction of that – and feel just as good.

Feathers are also quite resilient. A feather-filled pillow will hold its shape much longer than goose down – which breaks down over time. 

Feathers also have a smooth streamlined shape – which means they don’t clump like down pillows. Do you frequently have to fluff your down pillows?

With feather or polyester, you almost never fluff.

 

How To Maintain Them Properly

Chamberloft pillows are actually very durable. They have to be, of course, since they’re made for hotels.

But that doesn’t mean that you can just abuse them, and have them last forever. You still have to maintain them properly. But with a little love and care, they’ll last twice as long as any other pillow, and maintain their shape and luxurious feel.

So, moving forward, you’ll need to wash and dry them properly. This will ensure that the polyester fill stays fluffy, soft, and clump-free.

Washing Correctly

Polyester is not a natural material. So, you have to treat it in its own unique way.

Chlorine damages polyester, which means that you can’t use bleach, or detergents that contain bleach. So, only wash Chamberloft pillows using a non-chlorine detergent.

 

Dry Correctly

After you wash your pillows correctly, the next step is to dry them correctly.

Heat, even a small amount, can melt polyester. When the fibers melt, they stick together, and you have a clumpy pillow. So, only dry Chamberloft pillows using the “air dry” or “no heat” setting on your dryer.

 

You’ll also want to avoid liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets!

Why?

The synthetic chemicals in these products tend to stick to polyester fibers. After a few washes, the chemicals accumulate, and make the polyester fibers tacky, and heavy.

This not only ruins the feel of the pillow but also makes the fibers stick together. Sticky fibers = more clumps.

So, instead, dry them using wool dryer balls.

Wool dryer balls don’t contain any chemicals.

They absorb all of the static cling, without releasing any nasty chemicals. And as an added bonus, they’ll also fluff your pillows while they tumble inside of your dryer.

  1. I’m not sure whether to get the ChamberSoft or ChamberFirm. We stayed at Tulalip Resort&Casino in Washington State and loved the pillows. Need something we can sink into but still provide some support.

    1. Both the Chambersoft and the Chamberfirm are both great pillows. If you’re undecided about which way to go, I would recommend the Chamberloft as a good in-between. It provides a bit more loft and support than the Chambersoft, but more comfort than the Chamberfirm.

      More importantly, though, how do you sleep most often? And what are your dimensions? If you’re a stomach sleeper, the Chambersoft is probably your best bet. If you sleep on your back, or if you’re a side sleeper with petite dimensions, the Chamberloft would most likely fit best. If you sleep on your side, or if you’re a back sleeper with a large frame, the Chamberfirm would suit you best.

      1. Thanks for your comment, Vaheh. I remember the one at the hotel was nice and heavy, yet flexible. Im pretty sure it was the firm.
        Do you know where I can order just one, instead of a pair? That way, if it isn’t right, I can give it to someone or keep as a spare.
        Also, which one did you get, and why?😀

    1. Arlene,

      I spoke with my contact at Standard Textile. It looks like the Tulalip Resort uses the Chamberloft and Chamberfirm – so that rules out the Chambersoft pillow.
      I’m also of average build, and a side sleeper – and the Chamberloft works beautifully for me.
      If the pillow you had felt heavy, my guess is that you used the Chamberloft, since it has feather fill.
      Unfortunately, they are only sold in pairs.

      1. You have been SO very helpful! How do I go about ordering? And, if not right for us, can they be shipped back – free of charge?
