In Pursuit of a Great Night’s Sleep

By |2021-12-09T11:06:47-06:00May 16th, 2015|Latest News|Comments Off on In Pursuit of a Great Night’s Sleep


Excerpt from LUXURY HOTELIERS, 2nd Quarter 2015

By Steve Tipton

We are a sleep deprived country. Studies prove it. Experts continue to stress the importance of getting the required amount of sleep in order to avoid serious health issues down the road. But nowhere is the need for a good night’s sleep more important than when you’re a business traveler. Your work performance suffers when sleep suffers. Period. To sleep better, most experts recommend keeping surroundings quiet, dark and cool. In fact, lowering the temperature of the room is often considered a quick and easy solution. However, getting out of bed in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning to a freezing cold room is far from an enjoyable way to start the day. But what if you could manage temperature a different way? What if a cool, more comfortable night’s sleep started with the bed itself? Now it can.

Temperature Management Design Technology

The latest innovation in mattress technology is all about temperature management design – from the inside out. Simmons® Beautyrest® line features an exclusive temperature management design. Tencel® now provides the first layer of temperature control, absorbing and wicking away moisture. Below that, our patent-pending AirCool® foams allow for the circulation of air, mitigating heat from accumulating in the mattress. All of this technology is designed to help the bed stay cooler and ensure guests sleep more comfortably.

Hotels everywhere continue to make the guest sleep experience a priority. Which makes sense, when you really think about it. What you expect when you stay at a hotel is the promise of a good night’s sleep. Key hotel brands have invested significantly toward this goal, understanding the power of this key differentiator and its impact on guest loyalty.

Guest Comfort Matters

Case in point? Last year, an analysis of traveler’s online reviews by TrustYou was published in an online exclusive report by Travel + Leisure. TrustYou, an online reputation management company, evaluated the mentions of beds at U.S. hotels that got at least 400 reviews with at least 10 bed mentions between January 2013 and January 2014. Simmons took 3 of the top 5 positions, including the coveted number one spot for contributing to the New York Distrikt Hotel’s guest sleep experience.

Distrikt Hotel General Manager, Jennifer Rota, was thrilled with the honor, but not surprised.

“We’ve been getting positive guest reviews and feedback about our Simmons Beautyrest® beds since the first week we opened in February of 2010,” she said.
“Delivering a truly exceptional sleep experience starts and ends with a great mattress. Everything else is icing.”

Rota said the hotel’s mission is really quite simple. “We give guests a great place to stay, sleep and come back to,” she said. “We continue to tweak details – scent, sheets, pillows, etc. — in an effort to align with guest preferences and to exceed their expectations.”

Innovators Never Sleep

Every day we think about the future; about how we can improve and move our products to the next level. Be the very best at what we do. We believe Simmons’ approach to innovation sets us apart. A talented team at our Sleep Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) center is dedicated to looking for and developing new innovative products, fabrics, foams and bedding technologies every day. We look at our product development process through the lens of total cost of ownership; how do we provide a hotel brand with a great bed at a great value that delivers an exceptional guest sleep experience for a long time? In 1925, we created the Simmons Beautyrest® and it was certainly revolutionary. Since then we’ve continued to innovate the Beautyrest Pocketed Coil® product to deliver not only an exceptional guest sleep experience, but also the amazing durability that makes our products truly special. The design is the reason why the bed is comfortable, performs and lasts a long time.

Without innovation, we’re just another bedding company. And that’s not what Simmons aspires to be.


Steve Tipton, Vice President, of the Hospitality Group for Simmons Bedding has lead innovative efforts to make Simmons’ hospitality bedding more sustainable and renewable. These developments include the introduction of the EverNU™ removable top for the Beautyrest® Pocketed Coil Spring® mattress, which allows the hotel industry to easily replace top upholstery layers, maintaining a fresh product without having to discard complete mattresses. In addition to reducing landfill waste, EverNU™ also drives operational efficiency to the hotel. Under Mr. Tipton’s direction, the Simmons Hospitality Group also pioneered the use of a new sustainable foundation made entirely of product from the Sustainable Forest Initiative, giving hotel owners the opportunity to sustain longer-lasting product with increased durability on a cost neutral basis.

Simmons Hospitality Introduces Beautyrest Black®: Redefining Luxury with Technology

By |2021-12-09T11:06:54-06:00April 4th, 2014|Latest News|Comments Off on Simmons Hospitality Introduces Beautyrest Black®: Redefining Luxury with Technology

ATLANTA – April 4, 2014 –Simmons Hospitality Bedding, a Division of Simmons Bedding Company, announces the latest addition to its hospitality product lineup — Beautyrest Black®. Combining the most advanced sleep technology available with luxurious comfort, it excels in both performance and appeal to discriminating travelers.

According to Bain & Co., affluent spending reached $576 billion in 2013 and is expected to approach $750 within the next five years. Simmons Hospitality has a leadership position in the luxury segment and understands the essential needs of these clients.

“A great night’s sleep is the ultimate luxury for everyone; guests want to feel they are special  and wake rested in luxury,” said Steve Tipton, vice president of Simmons Hospitality Bedding.  “While we have amazing offerings in every segment of the hospitality market, delivering five-star luxury Beautyrest®   bedding is one area where we dominate. Beautyrest Black represents the ultimate hotel amenity. It says…you’ve arrived.”

The components and styling of the new Beautyrest Black are unique, yet offer the durability and performance associated with the entire Beautyrest line. The majority of hotels replace their mattresses every seven years due to a deterioration of the mattresses’ comfort level and plush feel. Simmons developed EverNU® to help hotels get the most out of their mattress investments. The EverNU zip-off topper allows hotels to refresh their guests’ sleep experience by replacing the mattress’ top upholstery layer without replacing the total mattress. This saves the hotel from having to invest in a new fleet of product while the beds’ constructions are still in their prime. This innovative product allows hotels to easily and inexpensively refresh their beds — and keep them out of landfills.

All Beautyrest Black models feature the EnduroTECH™ Hospitality foundation, which is designed to be 100 percent recyclable and last in a hotel room for 20 years. The product line also combines Simmons’ legendary Beautyrest® Pocketed Coil® Springs with innovative temperature management foams and a patented AirCool® Design to deliver a consistently exceptional guest sleep experience. The product assortment is pre-treated with Nano-Tex®, a high-performance stain protection technology exclusive to Simmons from Applied Textiles, adding to the life and cleanliness of the product.

“Eighteen out of 20 of the world’s top hotel brands buy our product,” says Tipton. “That is not an accident. It is because they trust us and believe in our products and what those products will do for their hotel and the satisfaction of each and every guest that stays there. Beautyrest Black will redefine luxury at five star hotels.”
