The best hybrid mattresses offer support and a responsive feel that provides freedom to move around easily. Both the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid and the DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress excel at this, but which bed is better?

We frequently rate the DreamCloud Hybrid among the year's best mattresses, as it offers a high quality performance at a low price. But the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid is perhaps the more well-rounded option, thanks to its range of firmness options. Is the personalization of the Brooklyn Bedding better than the DreamCloud Hybrid? Or is the DreamCloud design still the one for you?

Regular mattress sales mean you never have to pay full price for either of these beds and with the Memorial Day mattress sales already underway, now is a great time to shop. In this guide, we'll compare key specs to learn which mattress is best suited to your sleep style. Let's dive into this Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid vs DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress head-to-head.

Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid mattress: $665

Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid mattress: from $665  $498.80 at Brooklyn Bedding
The current 25% off sale isn't an unusual Brooklyn Bedding mattress sale, but while we might have been hoping for something bigger for Memorial Day, it's still a good saving. A queen is now $999 without a pillow-top (was $1,332) and $1,299 with a pillow-top. 

DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress: $839

DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress: from $839 $419 at DreamCloud
The 50% off DreamCloud mattress sale has been running for a while now, so we don't expect anything better (or worse) for Memorial Day. Still, this is an incredibly  generous saving and the final price is impressive for the quality of the mattress. You can get a queen for $665, which is significantly lower than the $1,332 MSRP.

Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid vs DreamCloud Hybrid mattress: Price & trial

  • Signature Hybrid is mid-range, DreamCloud is lower mid-range
  • DreamCloud offers a 365-night trial, lifetime warranty & free delivery
  • Brooklyn Bedding offers a 120-night trial, 10-year warranty & free delivery

There are evergreen sales at both Brooklyn Bedding and DreamCloud, so don't worry about the MSRP. At Brooklyn Bedding, the 25% off sale runs throughout the year, occasionally increasing to 30% off at very special occasions. DreamCloud offers between 40% and 50% off year-round – and we've been seeing that 50% off more and more lately.

In the evergreen sale, the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid mattress sits in the mid-range price bracket. Add the optional cushioned cooling top and it just sneaks into the upper mid-range price bracket. This might seem like a price jump, but many pillow-top mattresses are premium beds, so it's still a more affordable pillow-top choice.

The DreamCloud has an MSRP in the upper mid-range, but thanks to their year-round sale, it's typically sold at a lower mid-range price. And you'll also get some generous extras, like a 365-night trial and a lifetime warranty.

In comparison, the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid only comes with a 120-night trial and a 10-year warranty. This is actually fairly standard for a sleep brand, but it lags behind the premium DreamCloud benefits. Plus, while the DreamCloud has free returns, you have to pay $99 to return the Signature Hybrid to Brooklyn Bedding. 

Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid vs DreamCloud Hybrid mattress: Materials & design

  • Both mattresses are hybrids featuring springs and foam layers
  • Signature Hybrid has 5 inner layers, includes comfort foam and pocket coils
  • DreamCloud has 6 inner layers, includes gel-infused foam and pocket coils

The Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid mattress comes in three different firmness levels, but the basic construction remains the same no matter the feel. A top layer of quilted comfort foam is followed by a layer of responsive pressure foam, then a layer of transition foam. Next there's a layer of coils – adding bounce and support – before a final layer of foam for stability.

You also have the option of upgrading the standard design with an additional pillow-top. The best pillow-top mattresses have extra pressure relief thanks to this cushioned top layer, and the Brooklyn Bedding pillow-top also promises to increase cooling.

Like the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid, the DreamCloud is a hybrid mattress featuring springs and foam. Consisting of six internal layers (including five layers of foam), the DreamCloud has earned a place in our guide to the best hybrid mattresses.

The DreamCloud hybrid has three upper layers of comfort foam, starting with a contouring quilted gel foam, then a supportive foam, before another gel foam for further temperature regulation. Next is a layer of transition foam, then the individually wrapped coils, and a final stability foam layer. The DreamCloud is only available in one firmness level.

It's also worth mentioning that the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid is available in a lot of sizes, including RV sizes. In comparison, the DreamCloud range seems small (although it covers all the basics). But they are both in our best queen mattress guide.

Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid vs DreamCloud Hybrid mattress: Comfort & support

  • Signature Hybrid comes with three firmness options: Soft, Medium & Firm
  • Soft and Medium suit side sleepers, Firm suits front and back sleepers
  • DreamCloud is firm (8/10) and suits back and front sleepers

In our Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid mattress review our expert panel noted the bed has a bouncy, springy feel. For this review, our tester slept on a Firm bed with a pillow-top (but our Sleep Editor also had an opportunity to try the Medium without the pillow-top.

You won't sink into the surface of the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid, and while the pillow-top does provide additional softness, it doesn't have the 'hug' feel of memory foam. This makes it easier to move on the bed, but it won't appeal to those who want contoured support.

With three firmness levels to choose between, the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid mattress can suit a wide range of sleep styles. The Soft (rated 3 out of 10 on the firmness scale) is best for lightweight side sleepers, while the Medium (5 out of 10) should suit side and back sleepers, and the Firm (7 out of 10) is best for back and stomach sleepers. As a heads-up, adding a pillow-top knocks the firmness level down slightly – our tester described the Firm with pillow-top as 6.5 out of 10. 

The DreamCloud only comes in one firmness level, but as we found out during our DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress review, it's still a versatile bed. It's firmer than even the firmest Signature Hybrid level – we rate it an 8 out of 10 – and the strong spinal support has landed the DreamCloud a spot on our guides to the best mattress for stomach sleepers and the best mattress for back pain.

Due to the firmer feel, the DreamCloud might lack the cushioning side sleepers need. Based on our testing results, heavier side sleepers should adjust to the feel after a few nights on the bed. However, lightweight side sleepers might find it too firm overall.

Thanks to that optional pillow-top, the Signature Hybrid is an affordable way to achieve the cushioned comfort top feel that's often associated with hotel mattresses. However, you don't necessarily need a pillow-top to achieve this high-quality finish. The DreamCloud has.a tight-top design and we still rate it among the best luxury mattresses.

Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid vs DreamCloud Hybrid mattress: Temperature regulation

  • The DreamCloud uses gel-infused foam and open coils to increase cooling
  • Even with the optional cooling cover, the Signature Hybrid sleeps hot
  • Hot sleepers should opt for the DreamCloud Hybrid

Hybrid mattresses are typically more breathable than all-foam models, so we would expect good temperature regulation from both the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid and the DreamCloud Mattress. Surprisingly, our testing showed this wasn't the case.

Our tester found the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid could get uncomfortably warm overnight. This was particularly disappointing as our tester was using the mattress with the cooling top upgrade, and it still felt too hot at times. The DreamCloud, on the other hand, pairs the open coils with gel-infused foams, for an altogether cooler sleep experience.

Although neither bed can be considered among the best cooling mattresses, the DreamCloud is undoubtedly the winner when it comes to temperature regulation. Hot sleepers who are interested in Brooklyn Bedding should check out our Brooklyn Bedding Aurora Luxe mattress review for a better cooling bed.
