Simmons has introduced a new mattress that lets you zip off the top layers of the mattress and replace them. By doing this, you can extend the life of your hotel’s mattresses. A mattress can now last up to 14 years according to Simmons.

Our take: It seems like a solid idea. The replacement tops cost about $120. It seems like a good solution to replace soiled mattresses for about 1/5th of the cost. We really like any idea that improves the cleanliness of the beds in hotel rooms. Hotel beds have really come a long way in recent years. We really believe that the triple sheet system that replaced the disgusting comforters is one of the biggest improvements for hotels in decades.
Refrigerators in guest rooms are a great idea. Old refrigerators with compressors that cycle on and off all night are not such a great idea. We recently ran into a new refrigerator during a trip to a newly renovated hotel. The great thing about the Suite Fridge is the addition of two new buttons.
The first button is a ‘quick chill’ button. It can turn a newly installed refrigerator to the right temperature in just two hours. It is a great energy saver and useful if your hotel does not have refrigerators in the room but delivers them on request.
The second button is a ‘snooze’ button. What a great idea! The guest hits the snooze button before sleep and then enjoys 8 hours of silence. The refrigerator stays cold as long as the door is not opened. For more info, check out this website.
