If you recently stayed at a Marriott hotel, you probably loved how comfortable the bed was.
Am I right?
You might have even checked the bedding tags so you could look them up when you got home.
Chances are, you fell in love with the plush comfort that the bed provided, and you now want that same lofty comfort at home. It truly is hard to go back to a regular bed when you’ve stayed (and slept) at a premium hotel.
The mattress pad is the first place most people start – and for good reason too.
A good mattress pad provides that “sleeping on a cloud” feeling that our beds at home usually lack.
With that said, if you’d like to buy the mattress pad that you slept on during your recent Marriott hotel stay, you’ll find it in Marriott’s store on Amazon.
The same mattress pad found in their hotel rooms is also available for sale in their Amazon store. Yes, Marriott has their own store on Amazon!
This pad is usually available year-round in their store and is available in Twin through Cal King sizes.
That Hotel Bed Feeling
There’s no doubt about it – if you want that extra level of plush comfort, then you need a mattress pad. Adding comfort is the sole purpose of a mattress pad.
This pad will make you feel like you’re sleeping in a hotel because it’s designed to be used in hotels.
Let’s take a look at what makes these pads so great…
The Outer Cover
These pads have that distinctive scalloped-stitch design. It’s essentially equivalent to a baffled box construction, but with scalloped shapes instead of boxes.
The scallops hold the fill in place so it doesn’t bunch up.
The scalloped design isn’t just for looks and filling distribution though – it serves another purpose.
There are many more scallops on the surface of this pad than there are quilted boxes on a traditional mattress pad. The mattress pad distributes your weight more proportionally since there are more pressure points on the surface of the pad.
The Marriott mattress pad features an expandable skirt, with elastic all around to ensure a tight and snug fit.
This ribbed design allows the pad to hold on to your mattress more effectively than other pads. The skirt doesn’t constantly ride up, and it doesn’t require you to re-adjust every morning.
The filling of this pad is polyester cluster fiber. They contain 18 oz. of fill per square yard. As a comparison, the average mattress pad contains 6-10 oz. per square yard.
So, these pads are very plush.
The outer cover is 200 thread count and is made of 100% cotton.
These mattress pads will fit mattresses up to 18″ deep, are machine washable, and are available in the following sizes:
- Twin – 39″ x 75″
- Full – 54″ x 75″
- Queen – 60″ x 80″
- King – 78″ x 80″
- Cal King – 72″ x 84″
Mattress Pad Maintenance
Regardless of which mattress pad you choose, here are some tips to help you get the most out of it. While a mattress pad isn’t super delicate like a down pillow or comforter, it doesn’t hurt to use one correctly.
If you’re using a feather bed, put it underneath the mattress pad, and then cover both with your fitted sheet. It might be tempting to get lazy and forego the sheet, especially on pads with a high thread count, but don’t skip the fitted sheet.
If you do, you’ll end up washing your pad weekly, and shorten its lifespan.
A larger mattress pad such as the ones mentioned above should be washed and dried the same way you wash your comforter. Once every few months should be fine.
Because it is a thick pad, however, we would recommend taking it to a professional cleaning service.
The majority of mattress pads are filled with silky soft polyester fibers.
These fibers don’t react to extreme heat too well. If you’ve ever had a down alternative pillow or comforter clump up after a wash, you probably used too much heat in your dryer.
It doesn’t take much heat to melt polyester, so, dry on your machine’s lowest heat setting to avoid clumps.
