TRAVELER REVIEWS RANK SIMMONS BEAUTYREST® THE MOST COMFORTABLE HOTEL BED

Source September 24, 2014

Simmons Hospitality Bedding, a division of Simmons Bedding Company, makes a comfortable bed. In fact, in a recent analysis of traveler’s online reviews by TrustYou and published in an online exclusive report by Travel + Leisure, Simmons took 3 of the top 5 positions, including the coveted number one spot for contributing to the New York Distrikt Hotel’s guest sleep experience.

According to the data “analysis of user reviews across 250-plus websites—from TripAdvisor to Gogobot to Zoover— the Distrikt’s beds are the most comfortable in America.”

Distrikt Hotel General Manager, Jennifer Rota, was thrilled with the honor, but not surprised.

“We’ve been getting positive guest reviews and feedback about our Simmons Beautyrest® beds since the first week we opened in February of 2010,” she said. “Delivering a truly exceptional sleep experience starts and ends with a great mattress. Everything else is icing.”

Rota said the hotel’s mission is really quite simple. “We give guests a great place to stay, sleep and come back to,” she said. “We continue to tweak details – scent, sheets, pillows, etc. -- in an effort to align with guest preferences and to exceed their expectations.”

Simmons Hospitality Bedding shares their commitment to deliver a great sleep experience. It fuels their innovation process.

“Every day we think about the future; about how we can improve and move our products to
the next level,” said Steve Tipton, vice president, Simmons Hospitality Bedding. “If a guest has a great night’s sleep, the room seems bigger, the food tastes better and the staff seems friendlier. It helps starts their day off in a great, great way.”

TrustYou, an online reputation management company, evaluated the mentions of beds at U.S. hotels that got at least 400 reviews with at least 10 bed mentions between January 2013 and January 2014. Simmons Beautyrest came in at No. 1 at Distrikt Hotel, New York; No. 3 at Best Western Plus Tuscan Inn, Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco; and, No. 4 at Element, New York Times Square West. It also took spots 9 through 13 of the top 20.

“In 1925 we created the Simmons Beautyrest® and it was certainly revolutionary,” said Tipton. “But it’s how we’ve innovated that Beautyrest Pocketed Coil® product to deliver not only an exceptional guest sleep experience, but also amazing durability that makes our products truly special. The design is the reason why the bed is comfortable, performs and lasts a long time.”
