Do both of you really have sofa mattresses in 5 star hotels?

Yes. We both have sofa mattresses in select locations of: The Ritz Carlton, Hilton, Ramada, and Marriot. Mattress Insider sofa mattresses can also be found in these luxury properties: Hyatt, Wyndham, Bacara, Tahiti Village, Dream Inn, Hotel Park City, and Vista Del Mar.

Double Sided Sofa Mattresses. That's Right....You Can Flip Our Models!

Mattress Insider: Our two most popular sofa bed mattress models (The Deluxe Gel and The Luxury Latex) can be "flipped." One side is plush and the other side is hard. Some of your guests might like a hard mattress and some might like a plush mattress. Our sofa bed mattress models give you and your guests a choice.

Competitor  All models are single sided. They use an economical FR fabric on the bottom of their mattress as do most of our competitors. This cuts down on overhead but only gives you one firmness option.
