Question From: Julie Sorotsky. - September 23, 2014 - Hotel Mattress Comparison, Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. Hi. We have been looking for a new bed for a few years. We stayed at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco and loved the queen bed. I was told it was a Beautyrest Bouvet Island Recharge Plush. The hotel put us in contact with their local salesperson. I have a few questions. First, is this a highly recommended bed and second, is $1,016.00 plus tax a good price? Thank you!

Hi Julie,

Click Here to see the video response to your question.

If you really liked the Bouvet Island Plush at the hotel, I recommend to stick with what you know works.  That is a great comfort level for a supportive, yet comfy mattress.  The Plush comfort level sleeps fairly cool and along with the Recharge sleep system, it's a great bed.  We also have the Bouvet Island Plush under a different name.  Here is our equivalent Beautyrest, the Beautyrest Recharge Gia Plush.  The queen set is $899 including delivery, setup, old bedding removal, and no sales tax in NC and CA.  Sign up to be a member on our website for an additional 5% off your purchase!  Delivery can take up to 3 weeks.

Question From: Leslie Baer. - September 21, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. I recently went to Sleepy's and liked the Simmons Beauty Rest Luxury Plush SI 6827 but the price seemed very high and I can get a better deal online. Can you tell me what some of the comparable alternate options are? The Sleepy's option seems special just to then.

Hi Leslie,

There is one small difference to the Luxury Plush SI 6827 and a "normal" Beautyrest Recharge World Class model that makes it unique to Sleepy's.  But if you go to another retailer to try the closest comparable bed, it will feel nearly identical.  There is one foam layer that has latex in just the center third portion.  Beyond that one layer, it is exactly the same as the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Plush.  They share the same coil system and all other foam layers.  The price difference you see comes from that latex in there.  Latex is a really expensive product and typically drives the price up.  Sleepy's will not likely honor a price match as well.  This is all part of the racket.  Luckily, you did your shopping up front.   A host of people will buy it from them, have it delievered, and THEN go see what similar products are out there and realize they over spent.

Ah yes!! The Alder Firm.  I am familiar with that mattress from Macy's.  There isn't an exact equivalent to that bed but there is one really close.  On our website, it's the Beautyrest Recharge Gia X-Firm.  X-Firm and Firm are the same comfort level in most Macy's.  Look at the picture we have up there and it should resemble your mattresses tufting.  But just in case, and because I've seen Macy's have slight varations from coast to coast, also compare the way your beds quilting looks to the Beautyrest Recharge Gia Luxury Firm.  If the quilting is more loosely sewn as you see on the Luxury Firm model, then you have a winner.  These beds are available at most Simmons Beautyrest retailers around the country.  Let me know your zip code and I'll look up a few in your area.

Hi  Kristen,

The Beautyrest Recharge Sonora Extra Firm is equivalent to the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Firm on our website.  There are other sites and retailers who have the exact same mattress as well.  Any Beautyrest Recharge World Class Firm or Extra Firm will fit the bill. There is a 2nd tier to the World Class line that you can see on Macy's website with the Saratoga(our McKenna) but those are hard to find models on display.  Most often, the Alexandria/Sonora are featured in showrooms because of the price point and feel.  The Firm/Extra Firm comfort level doesn't have a whole lot of variety since it's such a firm feel.

Question From: Justin Ware. - September 12, 2014 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. My wife and I were looking at a mattress by Therapedic and we can't seem to find any reviews online. It's for the Olivia Hybrid Gel, and we can find NOTHING (which makes us nervous). We also tried the Comforpedic Loft Eventide, which was similar and a similar price point. We liked both mattresses but we'd like some help on durability and longevity and general feedback. Can you help? Thanks...

Hi Justin,

There isn't any feedback on that particular Therapedic model out there that I can find.  Sites that do 3rd party reviews like www.goodbed.com and sleeplikethedead.com do have reviews about the brand but not that specific mattress.

The Comfor-Pedic Loft Eventide mattress is one I recognize from our own line a few years back.  The Comfor-Pedics have been big hits for our customers and over the 6 years they've been sold under the Simmons brand name, we have yet to break into double digits for warranty claim requests.  They hold up really great so if you find the right comfort level, you won't need a new bed for a long time.

Hi Jaquelyn,

I have the Alder on my mattress list as a Macy's bed from a couple years back. You'll have to use a little spot checking to confirm if your mattress is a Tight Top Firm or and Extra Firm Firm.  Here are two beds that can be the equivalent:

Beautyrest Recharge Gia X-Firm

Beautyrest Recharge Gia Luxury Firm 

The  way to check is right on the picture.  Notice the X-Firm model has tightly sewn quilting with many tufts sewn into the top.  That's the really firm version.  The Luxury Firm model has quilting sewn looser and fewer tufts spread further apart.  Look at your mattress and the one that looks most similar will be it.  You can send me a picture if you are uncertain, I'd be happy to double check for you.

Hi Jesse,

Yes, you can!  What you are talking about is referred to as a Split King mattress.  Adjustable beds come like this.  The biggest problem you face if you each like 2 different beds is the mattress height.  If one of you likes a 11" thick mattress and the other a 13" thick mattress, they will not sit evenly across.   Beyond that, you can each pick any mattress you like to go on the bedframe.  I recommend memory foam beds if you split king because they are the easiest to match in height and also have corners that meet in the middle.  Tufted beds with coils have a pipping around the edge and there can be a gap between the two mattresses.  Those are the only drawbacks though.  If you guys cant agree and getting two different beds gives you each good quality sleep, go for it!

Hi Ken,

Unfortunatley, Simmons does not do custom size mattresses.  Their coil system comes only in the standard sizes of Twin, XL Twin, Full, XL Full, Queen, King, and Cal King.  We do order from a company called Southerland which does custom sizes on a few beds, but they won't be close to the feel of the Alexandria Luxury Firm.

Hi Terry,

The Bright Morning bed is an exclusive from Simmons that only La Quinta gets.  There are close  comparables out there at retailers that carry Simmons beds.  On our website, the closest comparable is the Beautyrest Recharge Phoebe Plush Pillow Top.  The Phoebe's foam layers area little different but overall the whole mattress is the same thickness and a similar comofrt level.  The Bright Morning bed does not have as much memory foam in the upholstery which is where the two beds differ.

Question From: Candy Maxey. - September 2, 2014 - Serta/Innerspring
Q. I have been shopping and reviewing mattresses and am not sure what is the best one for me and my husband. He likes firm and i like soft - our current Simmons World Class Beauty rest, i think is a plush (7 years old) is creating a hole where i sleep and making my lower back hurt.
i love the idea of the pillow top but is it going to provide the support i need. I saw SPT "Cushion Firm" i series bed at MAcy's called Luminous Retreat. Although the name says firm, the floor sample feels kind of soft when you lay on it. I also tried at another store the I series Merit SPT. This felt like a dream but am concerned it will change over time by creating body impressions or turn too soft. Is it better to get the Merit? Vantage Firm or Plush or the Luminous SPT.

Hi Candy,

From your question, I highly recommend the Serta iSeries Merit Pillow Top.  The Merit was known under the name Serta iSeries Ceremony Pillow Top.  The Ceremony did excellent and got many rave reviews from customers across the country.  The Merit is a better version of the Ceremony with more Cool Gel infusion and more coils.  Serta put more into the mattress but the price stayed about the same.  If you worry about pillow tops, the Serta iSeries Vantage Plush would be my #2 suggestion because of overall comfort level and performance again.  The Vantage was known as the Serta iSeries Applause and it got featured on Consumer Reports as a best buy for 2013.

Hi Michael,

Glad to hear you found a mattress you enjoyed to sleep on!  The Extra Firms from Simmons are rocks.  Here is an Extra Firm that is likely the exact same mattress - Beautyrest Recharge Gia X-Firm. The Gia X-Firm has the Classic Beautyrest coil system(now called Beautyrest Recharge) and will have tightly sewn quilting.  It will look very similar and have very little padding on top of the coils.  I always like to mention this is a really firm bed.  Side sleeping can be uncomfortable for long periods of time on this type of mattress.  Based off the tag you listed, it sounds like something like this is right up your alley.  Nice job on the info grab!!  Pulling back the sheets was a good call.

Now that bed takes us way back! It's great to see that it's been a good bed for you over the years. Simmons does things a little differently with their beds in today's line up so there is no mattress exactly like the OakDale Luxury Class 4. But in each level of Beautyrest offered today, they have a comfort level close to the Oakdales. From their best line up, the comparable bed is the Beautyrest Black Hope Luxury Firm.   This has Simmons best coil system and foam layer combination while being in the same comfort level as your current Beautyrest.

Question From: Manisha M. - September 1, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. Hi,
Great site! I just discovered it this morning. I am 110 lbs and a side sleeper and my husband is 150 lbs and a back sleeper. We both like medium firm mattresses.

We considering buying one of the following:

Simmons beauty rest Shakespeare luxury Firm from sleepys priced at $999 (mattress and box spring only)

Or Simmons Vanderbilt brain bridge plush/firm from Macy's priced at $697 +$75 delivery (mattress& box spring)

they both have 800 coil count and both have 20 year warranty.

But the difference appears to be huge and I could not find online reviews for the vanderbilt series.

My question:
1) Are they comparable? I am looking for a mattress that gives me at least 10 years without sagging.
2) what is your opinion about Vanderbilt series - for durability and support
3)Is there another mattress similar to Shakespeare luxury firm that is similar and cheaper than Sleepys?

Thanks and I really appreciate the great service you are doing to the consumers!
Manisha

Question From: Bill Adamany. - August 31, 2014 - Serta/Innerspring
Q. My wife and I need to purchase a mattress (well actually 3) for a second home and are leaning towards the Serta iseries Currently we're sleeping on a 5 year old Simmons NxG firm and really like it. I've slept on a Serta Vantage firm and its a little too firm. We did try the Honeree cushion firm in a store and were very surprised at how soft and even unsupportive it felt. So given what we like and don't like, do you have any recommendations? Second question: does the iseries Profile offer anything worth considering, or is it just marketing? Thanks.
A.

Hi Bill, 

The Serta Profiles mattresses have a layer of EverFeel  memory foam at the top which gives it a softer feel.  The Honoree Luxury Firm model  is on the softer side of the Luxury Firm comfort level(between 3-5 on the comfort scale).  

The Serta iSeries Vantage Plush is a softer version than the iSeries Vantage Firm you slept on.  There is also the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Luxury Firm which is softer than the Vantage Firm, but not in the same way as the Honoree.  So to recap, the Serta iSeries Vantage Plush if you didn't try it yet, or the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Luxury Firm are two beds that fit your criteria.  If you need help finding the Alexandria Luxury Firm locally in your area, let me know your zip code and we can find out.
