Cinderella said it best. “A dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep.” What better way to drift asleep than atop a buttery soft cloud of feathers that also keeps you propped up nicely and firmly?
We’ve gone on a mission to reveal the top ten hotels with the best mattresses. If you’re a fan of boutique hotels, we’ve got you covered with a short list from sea to shining sea. We begin in New York and end in California.
We also highlight a couple of chain hotels with the best mattresses so you can rest assured, sleep in utmost comfort and peace, no matter where you find yourself tonight. Without further adieu, let’s go dream chasing.
1. The St. Regis New York
When you tuck yourself into a St. Regis bed, you’ll be floating atop an ultra-luxurious Beautyrest Black Simmons mattress. These mattresses are so fabulous, they were designed specifically for the St. Regis.
Ready for this? The top layer consists of a diamond memory foam. These diamonds conduct heat away from the body and support backs while reducing motion transfer through the mattress.
The icing on the cake is the cashmere quilting that tops off each mattress. After you spend on a night on this cloud of softness, feel free to purchase one through St. Regis for a cool 3,495 USD.

Address: East 55th Street, New York, NY 10019
For your Middle America stopover, enjoy a luxurious night at The Whitehall Hotel. They feature the Hypnos mattress brand, which is known for having three times the average number of mattress coils in normal mattresses.
Somehow, they manage to provide plushness that’s fully supported no matter how you stretch. We’d be remiss if we didn’t also highlight their Egyptian cotton sheets and goose-down pillows. What movie will you snuggle in bed with in the evening?

This is one of our favorite hotels with the best mattresses. L'Horizon features a series of luxurious bungalows. You decide how much space you need and what kind of California dream view you’d like to see when you wake up in the morning.
Travelers consistently equate their beds to heaven. Each mattress contains hand-crafted natural fibers and provides the type of support you can’t fully comprehend. Beyond that, you’ll also sink into the buttery soft Frette sheets.
L'Horizon is a list-topper because the setting is so spectacular. You can’t help but smile as you pull back the sheets at night. Then, when you slide under the covers, you’ll understand why “heaven” is completely apropos.

We happen to love the Beverly Hills location the best. They feature the Simmons Westbury Recharge Plush mattresses. The name alone says it all, right?

While the St. Regis teamed up with Simmons, Hilton went with Serta. Their mattresses are equipped with extra coil support. This means every twist and turn you make will be fully supported.

Sofitel is another chain that’s a fan of Serta. At Sofitel, you’ll discover custom-designed Serta mattresses and box springs. Visitors remark on their one-of-a-kind balance between sensitivity and support.
