Part of the luxury and lure of staying in a lavish hotel is the bed, and with some of the finest linens in the world, and the most comfortable mattresses, these hotels generally don’t disappoint.
Think Egyptian cotton, silk pillows, and the finest Italian Frette. Or memory foam mattresses, plush pillows, and antique four-poster canopies set up to offer sweeping city views.
After having extensively slept around, from the intimate bedroom loft apartments of New York, to the lavish furnishings of Biltmore House, here are the best hotel beds from around the world.

Kimpton Hotel Monaco: Salt Lake City
When it comes to luxury, Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City is at the top of their game, and their luxurious king-size beds are one of the highlights of each room.
Though in competition with the bed, our 450-square-foot junior suite also featured a sitting area with queen-size memory foam sleeper sofa. We almost didn’t make it through the draped archway which lead to the bedroom itself!
Hotel 32 at The Monte Carlo: Vegas
This Ultra King bed (6″ longer and wider than traditional King) at Hotel 32 at the Monte Carlo Vegas was definitely a treat, and their high quality linens were like being wrapped in a cloud!
One of the largest and most luxurious beds of any hotel we have stayed in to date, there was almost no reason to leave the room! And in fact we almost didn’t – our first day in Vegas was spent in bed enjoying trashy movies propped up against a plethora of super soft pillows!
Kimpton Hotel Monaco: Denver
With luxury Italian Frette linens, and feather down comforters and pillows, Kimpton’s King-size beds at the Hotel Monaco Denver are truly divine.
Though Kimpton hotels across the board are automatically awarded extra points for their luxury bath amenities and plush animal-print robes – a stay at a Kimpton property is truly the whole package when it comes to bed and bath!
The Inn on the Alameda: Santa Fe
Italian cotton bedding, thick Brazilian towels, and soft spa robes; our stay at the Inn on the Alameda in Santa Fe was a definite win!
Their traditional rooms exude the hospitable comfort of classic Santa Fe style, and the bed blended right in with the southwestern decor of the overall desert theme. We were treated to simple elegance and classic comfort.
MySuites & Co Boutique Apartments: New York City
As luck would have it, we managed to find a beautiful boutique apartment for our recent stay in New York City, and were met with an intimate bedroom loft on entering our MySuites apartment in the Meat Packing District.
Cutting edge design and fantastic use of lighting and space – the bedroom was gorgeous, and the bed was so comfortable we were tempted to stay in and forgo sightseeing around New York completely!
The Hotel Duval: Tallahassee, Florida
If there was ever a hotel bedroom which would make you say WOW, it would be that of the Diamond Suite at Tallahassee’s Hotel Duval.
A spectacular open floor plan which combined bed and bath, one of the highlights of our stay was the ability to enjoy a luxurious bubble bath and then jump straight from the tub to the bed, sinking into more than 6 plush pillows and some of the finest linens in the world.
Casino Del Sol: Tucson, Arizona
After our stay at the Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona, I never want to be wrapped in anything other than Egyptian cotton ever again!
The Egyptian cotton triple sheeted bed was a definite highlight of our two night stay.
The Bus Hostel: Reykjavik, Iceland
For a hostel bed, the bed which came with our private room at the Reykjavik Bus Hostel was one of the best!
A sturdy mattress with soft, cushy pillows and wonderfully insulated linens kept us warm throughout each Icelandic night.
DoubleTree by Hilton: Naples, Florida
With Hilton’s signature Sweet Dreams bedding, our stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton Naples really did make for sweet dreams!
Their mattress and box spring set offers extra comfy-ness through a specialized design and construction that includes continuous innerspring support, a movement-reducing foundation, and a soothing quilted top.

Kings Courtyard Inn: Charleston, South Carolina
Our stay at the Kings Courtyard Inn in Charleston, South Carolina, meant sleeping in a beautiful antique four poster canopied bed.
Oasis Suites Hotel: Outer Banks, North Carolina
Our stay at the luxurious Oasis apartments in South Carolina’s Outer banks meant one thing when it came time for bed: silk!
Though the bedroom came with one other major perk – spectacular water views from the bed over the private balcony which overlooked the Roanoke Sound.
Mandarin Oriental: Washington DC
With an emphasis on comfort and luxury, our beautiful suite at the Mandarin Oriental Washington DC used a soft taupe and cream color palette, a color scheme which extended to the luxury King size bed.
The beautiful bed was positioned directly opposite the suite’s expansive windows, offering amazing views overlooking the white-domed Jefferson Memorial from bed.
Inn on Biltmore Estate: Ashville, North Carolina
The luxurious suites at the Inn on Biltmore Estate are a great place to stay on your visit to Biltmore – and the furnishings, bed included, are lavish to say the least!
Plush pillows, luxury linens, and beautiful woodland views straight from bed – there is no place I would rather rest my head!
