You've spent the night – now buy the bed

Posted in HOTELS + VILLAS By Maggie O' Sullivan

What better way to choose a new bed than by spending a night or two in it? And no, I don't mean pack your overnight bag and head for the nearest department store. Four Seasons bedIn fact, five-star hotels have been discretely selling their bedroom furniture to guests for years. Four Seasons, for example, prides itself on having the most comfortable beds in the business and will happily sell you one via an individual hotel or resort for just over $2,000 (further details). St Regis, Westin and Ritz-Carlton, among others, all sell their super comfortable beds online.Premier Inn bedIt isn’t just the luxury hotels that do it: in the UK, Premier Inn, which currently has a ‘good night’s sleep’ guarantee, sells its new mattress with built-in topper by Hypnos. Having spent the night in a Premier Inn bed recently I can certainly attest to their comfort (though, for me, the affect was marred by the hard pillow). Swissotel bedlinenOf course, to get the hotel bed effect you’ll need the hotel bedlinen. The bad news is that even if you buy the right sheets (100 per cent Egyptian cotton) with the right thread count (300-400), you probably won’t be able to launder and iron them to the same professional standard. Four Seasons even has a special way of making beds which includes tucking a pocket along the bottom so guests can move their feet. If you’re game to give it a go, try Swissôtel at Home: it sells its 100 per cnt Egyptian cotton, 300 thread count bedlinen with double-line embroidery by Frette (above). The Savoy bedroomNot only does Shop at The Savoy sell the hotel's famous Savoir beds as well as its signature bedlinen with gold threading embroidery, it also offers some of the Wedgwood china used in the Thames Foyer plus the etched champagne glasses. Perfect for recreating a Savoy champagne breakfast in bed at home...
