After spending 2 months occupying my Friend’s Living Room (#OccupyLivingRoom), I finally retrieved my W Bed and have set up all my IKEA Bedroom Furniture.
If you ever feel the need to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection, try putting together an entire IKEA Bedroom Set in the span of 1 day.
Short of yelling “Move That Bus”, it was basically “Extreme Makeover: IKEA Edition” and I will tell you I have not felt that kind of sense of self-accomplishment in a long time.
Now that I have slept on my new W Mattress for about 2 weeks, I thought I would review it for anyone who is thinking about getting one.
I purchased my W Mattress way back in October when W Hotel Store was having a 35% off sale for Columbus Day. I chronicled the purchase here.
After the 35% off coupon, I paid $688.35 for a Queen Plush Top Mattress Only. This price included Free Delivery, a 10 Year Warranty, and NO SALES TAX!
Here is the description of the Mattress from the W Store:
“Made exclusively for W Hotels by Simmons. This hotel quality mattress features Visco Memory Foam and Pocketed Coil® springs to give you a wonderful night’s sleep. Designed with excellent firm support to cushion your pressure points in just the right way. Add a featherbed to get that complete W Hotels cloud-like experience. 12 inches thick. 10 year warranty.”
Yes you read that correctly, the Mattress is 12 inches thick, and a good 3 inches are just pure Visco Memory Foam.
Here is my description of the Mattress:
“You are sleeping on a cloud.”
I can sleep almost anywhere, in India I even slept on the floor, but this Mattress is amazing.
Every time I have ever stayed at a W Hotel or Westin Hotel, I have always had an amazing sleep and have always woken up feeling refreshed.
Now basically, I have that experience every day which is pretty awesome.
Although $688.35 might sound like a lot for a Mattress, it is something I will use for at least 6 hours everyday for the next 10 years, so in my opinion that is money well spent.
If you are thinking about getting a new Mattress, I highly suggest considering getting this Mattress.
I was just looking at the W Store, and coincidently there is a 35% sale going on right now!
Best part is if you put the Mattress on your SPG AMEX, like I did, then you get 2x Starpoints!
If you are unsure about committing to purchasing a Bed without trying it, then I suggest burning some Starpoints and going to a W Hotel for the night and trying out the Bed. You will not be disappointed!
If you are reading this at work and are bored, since everything at the W Store is currently 35% off, I suggest taking a look around as there are some really random items available for purchase.
I found this really awesome Cardboard Moose which I want to hang above my Bed or over the Fireplace but it seems to be sold out : (
Happy sleeping and happy shopping!
