Question From: Dawn Thornberry. - January 26, 2015 - Hotel Mattress Comparison
Q. I recently stayed at a hotel and their beds were amazing, however they only had the hospitality name for it. Could you tell me what the equivalent would be? It's a Simmons Beautyrest 360 Signature II Plush- Hospitality collection.

Hi Dawn,

The Signature II Plush is an old school Beautyrest.  The coil count in a queen size is 825 which is from the 2006-2007.  It appears they still make that model for the hotels and you can buy them outright all sales final online from their webstore.  The closest thing you'll find in today's line up from retailers like us is the Beautyrest Recharge Candace Plush.   The Candace model is a little more built up with the Recharge features and AirCool foam but is also a little bit more.

Question From: theresa ahlm. - January 26, 2015 - Miscellaneous
Q. Ok, so I am the one who made a grave mistake and purchased the castleton firm plush mattress and cannot sleep due to shoulder and upper back pain! OUCH!!! Anyways so went back to shopping- and looking at a Stearns and Foster Scarborough tight top plush or the brighton. I am extremely anxious only due to my last poor decision. Am I again heading the wrong direction? Also do i purchase from Macy's or Slumberland? The other which I also like is: Simmons Thompson Plush Collection- and told that will probably be the most similar to the Stearns and foster? THANK YOU!

Hi Theresa,

If you are side sleeping and having issues like shoulder pain and upper back pain, I recommend a softer mattress.  If' it's too firm and you are side sleeping, the shoulder pain is from the coils pressing too firmly against your body.  The upper back pain is because the mattress isn't contouring enough to your hips and shoulders, thus keeping your posture unnaturally straight in a way that is uncomfortable.  The Thompson Plush is a step in the right direction.

When it comes to where to buy from, I suggest smaller stores locally run in your area.  You get better service and in many ways, better trained, more knowledgable employees there(big emphasis on better service).  In the end, you'll have to get the mattress from the store that has the one you like the best too.  Always ask about what happens in cases of Warranty claims or comfort exchanges.  The details in those policies may make all the difference.

Question From: Debbie Hershey. - January 25, 2015 - Miscellaneous
Q. Hi. I have low back problems and am looking for a new mattress. I am trying to decide between the Simmons Beauty Rest Recharge World Class Mattress River Hills Plush and the Sera I Series Merit. I am a side sleeper and both seem comfortable. The Simmons says it has Air Cool Memory Foam and Beautyrest pocketed coils. At the surface it has Air Feel foam. The Serta I Series Merit says it has Serta Comfort XC foam, Cool Action Gel and a Duet coil in coil system. The Serta feels slightly firmer but both feel good when I try them in the store. I am a side sleeper. Do you have a feeling which is better for low back issues?

Hi Debbie,

The firmer feel of the iSeries Merit Plush Pillow Top is a better match if you are having lower back issues.  It's firmness lends to support while still having the Pillow Top pressure relief.  The Merit has some high marks out there on review sites compared to other Pillow Tops as well so it's a great mattress!

Question From: theresa ahlm. - January 24, 2015 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. I am now feeling defeated! We decided on the beautyrest castleton firm pillowtop mattress. I honestly could not make it 4 hours without having to get up and find the ibuprofen, heatpad and couch. I thought it felt great in the showroom... i have some low back discomfort- which resolved on this mattress however my upper back and shoulders were in pain for hours what kind of mattress would provide comfortable soft support without having to spend over $2000? Thanks!

Hi Theresa,

There is a Plush version of the Beautyrest Castleton Pillowtop mattress.  With shoulder pain and discomfort like you describe, the firm coils are likely causing that stress.  Firm coils are really hard on hips/shoulders while side sleeping.  See if you can use the comfort exchange Macy's offers to reselect to the Plush Pillowtop or just the regular Plush model.  The plush model is less thick than a Pillowtop and may be a good in between.

Question From: glynis golden. - January 23, 2015 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. I recently purchased a Beautyrest World Class Recharge luxury firm mattress and it seems to sag. The store has replaced one mattress for same problem already and won't return my money so I am trying to find a way to make the mattress not feel so saggy. Would placing a piece of plywood between the mattress and the platform make the mattress feel more supportive? thanks

If it's a very new mattress, you may need to move around, sleep in different spots to break the mattress evenly. If you are only sleeping in the same exact spot on the mattress, only a ...

Hi Km,

That was a World Class Beautyrest mattress! A blast from the past. Newer World Class models have more coils, here's a link to the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Plush Pillow Top.  But this is the comparable bed in today's line up.  These models are a little thicker than they used to be but the extra coils are balanced out by a little extra foam, and Aircool Memory Foam.  This mattress is available at most Beautyrest retailers around the country.  The name Alexandria may change but the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Plush Pillow Top is what you are looking for locally.

Hi Henry, 

The 2013 Glover Park is still around in the Simmons line up nationwide. Our current equivalent is theBeautyrest Recharge Gia Luxury Firm Pillow Top.  This is medium-soft comfort level.  Since it's a thicker mattress with foam layers, this mattress can be slept on comfortably by side sleepers even though the coils are rigid.  This mattress is slightly firmer than the Westin Heavenly bed which is a popular Beautyrest in the Westin and W Hotels.

Question From: Linda Arriola. - November 24, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. Hi , my husband and I can't decide on the Beautyrest Black Alexia extra firm and Beautyrest black Ava Luxury firm. We currently have a too soft kingsdown mattress and want to replace with a firm mattress. I sleep on my side and stomach looking for something not to firm and not to soft. We both like the feel of the Ava and Alexia can't decide. Quoting us $1900 for California King on the Alexia and $2200 on the Ava. Any advice would help! Thanks!

Hi Linda,

I think the Beautyrest Black Ava Luxury Firm is a better match if you and your husband sleep on your sides at all during the night.  The Extra Firm's are trick.  The Beautyrest Black Alexia Extra Firm may feel comfortable for a few minutes of resting on your side but hours later, the Extra Firms tend to cause tossing and turning, joint pain, and numbess in limbs for side sleepers.  Those prices are pretty good too!

Question From: TJ Bell. - November 12, 2014 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. Hello,
I don't like memory foam feel or gel foam... I don't like the sinking in feeling and find it hard to move around, as I change sleep positions frequently through out the night... I've been looking at the Alexia Xrta Firm, but it also has memory foam in the top layer. Any suggestions on beds that don't have a memory foam layer? A latex layer is okay... please advise! Thank you!

Hi TJ,

Memory foam is in a majority of coil/spring mattresses sold today.  In a model like the Beautyrest Black Alexia Extra Firm, sure it has a layer in the upholstery, but you won't feel the sinking feeling like you describe from an all foam mattress or any Plush/Pillow Top style mattresses.  The sinking feeling occurs when you get layer upon layer of memory foam in a mattress.  The Beautyrest Recharge Hybrids are the types of coil/spring mattresses you want to stay away from.  The memory foam in the Alexia will help the firm coils adapt and conform to you, but shouldn't give the mattress the memory foam feel.

Question From: Victoria Faerstein. - November 9, 2014 - Serta/Innerspring
Q. My husband and I have narrowed our mattress search down to the Serta iseries Vantage Plush and the Beautyrest Black Ava firm. I understand Serta owns both companies. Is the Beautyrest Black coil system, foam, gel, etc. really of higher quality? There is an $800 differential in price for the California King (we live in L.A.) which is fine if it's worth it. thank you!

Hi Victoria,

It's tru that Serta and Simmons are both somewhat related on the business ends of things.  Though Serta does not own Simmons, they are both under the same umbrella, so to speak.  This aside, the beds you are comparing have one difference to consider if they both feel pretty good when testing.  The Beautyrest Black Ava Luxury Firm bed has the triple wound cables inside which equates to more undisturbed rest.  You'll feel less of your sleep partner's movements during the night.  Each bed has some great qualities to them and the motion separation is the one that defines the biggest difference.  I don't think the price difference is quite as big as you mentioned from all places you can find the Beautyrest Black models.  The Cal King set to LA from our website is $2260.19 plus tax.  That price includes delivery, setup, and old bedding removal in about 2-3 weeks time.

Hi Jan,

I am very familiar with the Gabby model.  We sold it with the TruEnergy line as well!  The Truenergy beds have been reintroduced.  The new version of the Gabby is called the Beautyrest Recharge Dakota Extra Firm.  The Gabby and the Dakota share the same thickness, coils, and evenloft flat surface.   These are true hybrid mattresses because they don't have anything but the AirCool memory foam in the upholstery layers. The Hybrid Beautyret beds are on display at locations all around the country.  Let me know your zip code and I can help you find one nearest you.

Q. I can't believe that someone just had the same experience we did! My husband and I also just stayed at the Mandarin Oriental in San Francisco on Nov. 1st and absolutely loved the bed! I called the hotel today to find out the type of mattress and they told me it was a Simmons Beautyrest Emminence Plush Top...Any chance that you know anything about this mattress and what it is currently named? We desperately need to replace our mattress and this one is really the one we want. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Hi Faith!

That helps narrow it down to a select couple mattresses in the Simmons line.  Here are the two best comparables to the Eminence:

Beautyrest Recharge Gia Plush

Or

Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Plush

Depending on the mattress at the Mandarin, it will have one coil system or the other so either mattress in this case is a really close comparable.  There is also the Beautyrest Black Ava Plush which has the firmest of the three coil systems.  It's their latest line in luxury bedding and a good one to check out if you like the Plush's from Beautyrest.

Hi Laura,

Beautyrest mattresses will have coils inside while your Natural Care does not.  I recommend finding/trying the Comfor-Pedic and Comfor-Pedic IQ beds.  They are all foam and will be more similar than the beds you've already tested.  The Natural Care you have(firm, plush, pillow top or drop top) will determine which comfort level to try.  The thicker mattresses are softer in the Comfor-Pedic and Comfor-Pedic IQ lines and the skinnier beds are firmer.  You can go to Simmons' website to use their dealer locater to see if there is a retail store near you to try a few of these out.

Hi Shellie,

The name Eminence isn't quite enough to nail down an exact comparison unfortunately.  Eminence has been used in several lines and for a lot of different beds.  I hit up Simmons for some information and they did not have anything difinitive to offer.  One helpful tip in the future is to always take a picture of the side of the mattress.  That way if we can't find specs, we can at least go by thickness for comfort level and fabrics for class.  World Class Beautyrest beds have different fabrics than the Classic Recharge beds so it's somewhat easy to narrow it down that way.  If they can send you a picture, we can go a little further to help.  I can also make a few recommendations based on what are in other hotels if you would like but it's a shot in the dark with out knowing more about the Eminence.
