Upscale hotels promise guests the perfect night's sleep by creating five-star luxurious beds which look and feel wonderful. Recreating that level of luxury for your home can be accomplished by knowing the different elements which go into creating five-star bedding and finding feel-good fabrics that are soft and plush, but at affordable prices.

Layers, Layers and More Layers

One common element that many of the five-star hotels use when creating luxury bedding is layering from top to bottom with super-soft yet crisp looking cotton linens, fluffy soft covers and plenty of plush pillows.

The elements of luxury hotel bedding generally include: (In order)

  • Bed skirt
  • Feather or foam mattress topper
  • Mattress pad
  • Fitted sheet
  • Flat sheet
  • One down blanket
  • Flat sheet
  • Duvet with an ultra-plush poly insert
  • Two feather and down pillows with protectors and pillowcases
  • Two hypo-allergenic pillows with protectors and pillowcases
  • One boudoir pillow with protector and cover

The Westin Hotel is known for its "Heavenly Bed" concept (pictured) designed to give guests the ultimate in sleeping luxury. You can achieve that same level of lavish comfort, but at budget prices.

The queen-size "Heavenly Bed" package costs around $2865 plus $300 in shipping. This includes a mattress and box spring at a cost of $1,275 and two feather and down pillows, two hypo-allergenic pillows and one boudoir pillow and cover, duvet cover with an overstuffed polyester insert, down blanket, bed skirt, top sheet, middle sheet, bottom sheet and pillow cases.

Our package recreates the Heavenly Bed package and includes all of the items listed above (except for the mattress) plus pillow protective covers and a mattress cover. We substituted a good mattress topper instead of going to the expense of buying a new mattress.
