Hotel pillows: how to get a luxury night's sleep

Creating a luxury hotel sleep experience at home

If there’s one place you can usually guarantee a good night’s sleep, it’s in a hotel — in fact, it’s what many of us look forward to most on a getaway! It’s easy to see why a night in a hotel can leave you feeling so refreshed, with mattresses perfect for sinking into after a busy day exploring to luxuriously soft cotton-rich sheets. But what many of us love most about hotel beds is the luxurious cloud-like pillows.

Hotel pillows are renowned for their unparalleled comfort and support, leaving guests longing for that same restful sleep experience in their own beds. But what exactly sets hotel pillows apart from the rest, and how can you recreate the restful slumber you get from them in your own home? Pillow World are here to tell us everything we need to know.

What makes hotel pillows so comfortable?

The secret to the unmatched comfort of hotel pillows largely lies in their premium materials. Most hotel pillows are filled with premium synthetic hollow fibres. This is because not only are they known for their superior comfort, but hollow fibre pillows are the perfect year-round option, staying warm in the winter and providing breathable cool support in the summer. Hollow fibre pillows are hypoallergenic, so they are perfect for allergy sufferers, and as they adapt to the head and neck they are an ideal choice for almost any type of sleeper. They are also often encased in a timeless striped design soft-touch cover, giving a luxury pillow a luxury finish.

How to recreate a hotel sleep experience at home

While not every day can be a luxury hotel getaway, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy the comfort of hotel slumber in your own bed. The good news is that there are plenty of ways you can make your sleeping environment a little more luxurious. Here are some tips to recreate the ambience of a five-star hotel in your own bedroom.

Add sumptuous comfort with luxurious hotel pillows

Did you know you can enjoy the comfort of hotel pillows in your own home? Many reputable pillow retailers offer a selection of hotel pillows, which are chosen for their supreme comfort. Not only are these pillows a luxurious choice and perfect for a great night’s sleep, but they tend to be very durable as well, staying plump and supportive. There are a wide variety of hotel pillow options on the market to choose from, including options for back, side, and front sleepers, so you’re sure to find the right ones for you.

Use quilted pillow protectors and mattress toppers

If you’re looking for ways to add an extra layer of comfort and protection to your bedding, quilted pillow protectors and mattress toppers are two worthwhile investments. Quilted pillow protectors not only safeguard against spills, stains, and wear and tear, prolonging the lifespan of your pillows, but also add an extra touch of luxury to your bedding ensemble. Mattress toppers similarly prolong the lifespan of your mattress and add an oomph-like comfort. They are particularly beneficial for those looking to upgrade their sleep environment but aren’t ready to splash out on a whole new mattress.

Opt for rich cotton sheets

Elevate your bedding with soft, breathable cotton sheets reminiscent of those found in luxury hotel suites to elevate your slumber. Most high-end hotels opt for high-quality cotton sheets with at least a 400 thread count, so doing the same in your own home will help you emulate the perfect night’s sleep you get in a hotel. High thread count sheets give your bedding a luxurious silky-smooth feel, perfect for slipping into a deep sleep. Plus, these higher thread count sheets tend to be both more durable and breathable, making them a great investment for your sleep environment year-round.

Keep it bright

Do you ever wonder why hotel bedspreads are always white? This is likely partly down to the sleep benefits that come from light, neutral shades. Opting for neutral colours like white in your bedding and decor can help you create a calming atmosphere, perfect for relaxing and unwinding at the end of the day. You may also want to avoid clutter and excessive decorations, opting instead for minimalist touches, as this can promote tranquillity and serenity in your bedroom too.

Clean your bed and bedding regularly

The bedding you choose can have a huge impact on the quality of sleep you get, but don't overlook the importance of cleanliness in your sleep environment. A clean hotel is a comfortable hotel, so give your own bedroom the TLC that is given to a hotel room for a hygienic sleep environment. Regularly clean your bed and bedding, including sheets, pillowcases, and mattress protectors, to ensure a hygienic and inviting sleep space. You should also clean your mattress around every six months or so, and flip or rotate it too so that the filling stays evenly distributed to ensure a comfortable slumber.

“When planning a trip away, finding the right place to stay is often high on the list of priorities. Hotels are focussing more and more on the importance of sleep and providing a sanctuary like bedroom experience.  Hotel pillows have a big part to play in this, with their premium filling and superior comfort and support. Fortunately, we can now recreate this at home with our very own hotel-quality pillows.

“Even the best mattress can feel uncomfortable if you don't have the right pillows, pound for pound they are probably the most used and most important item in your home so it makes sense to invest in quality pillows that you will love night after night”.
