Do you always have your best night's sleep when staying at a luxury hotel? Me too. There's something about hotel mattresses that ooze comfort, to the point where I can hardly keep my eyes open long enough to enjoy the bed.
However, returning home can be less fun, with your own bed somehow paling in comparison. If you want the best mattress for recreating hotel luxury sleep at home, I can help as I've found three leading hotel mattresses on sale this Black Friday. My top pick is 20% off the Ritz-Carlton Bed by Stearns & Foster, a leading sleep brand hosting its own Black Friday sale with up to $400 off mattresses plus a free $300 VISA gift card.
So if you've ever wondered what mattresses do hotels use and how can you buy one without spending a fortune, read on for my top three Black Friday mattress deals on the best hotel mattresses – plus their affordable alternatives. Let's check-in...
1. The Ritz Carlton Bed at the Ritz Carlton Hotel Shop
Was: from $2,390
Now: from $1,912 at the Ritz-Calrton Hotel Shop
Saving: up to $772
Summary: The glamorous Ritz-Carlton hotel chain has a five-star reputation to live up to, so no wonder they turned to luxury sleep brand Stearns & Foster to create their world-famous mattress. Custom-designed especially for the hotel, the Ritz-Carlton bed is a 13.5" cooling hybrid mattress that uses individually wrapped springs and breathable foam layers for temperature control, plus a plush pillow top for pressure relief. It also has superb edge support thanks to its reinforced foam-cased edges. The Ritz-Carlton Bed comes in five sizes (including Cal king), but as a made-to-order bed, delivery could take up to 10 weeks. There's also no sleep trial and white-glove in-home delivery has a flat rate of $225.00. Still, if you want the most famous hotel mattress in the world, you can get it this Black Friday for 20% off.
Benefits: 10-year warranty
Price: As this is a quintessential luxury mattress, the price tag is premium and discounts are rare. However, sales are rolled out on some occasions, and right now there is 20% off the Ritz-Carlton bed in the Black Friday sales, with a queen size mattress is reduced from $3,440 to $2,752.
Budget alternative: DreamCloud Premier Hybrid

If you want the luxury hotel comfort that The Ritz-Carlton bed offers but for a more affordable price, the Premier Hybrid is an excellent alternative.

While you can also score a mattress created by the brand who custom-make the Ritz Carlton's beds at the Stearns and Foster website, we think this is an excellent way to nab a luxury mattress without the premium price tag.
