Why are hotel sheets so comfortable? Who better to explain this than someone who has been selling sheets to hotels for 40 years? I spent my entire career selling bed sheets to hotels. It was only in 2019 that we created American Blossom Linens, our direct consumer brand of Organic Cotton Sheet Sets. If you did not know, American Blossom Linens is a brand made by manufacturer Thomaston Mills. Thomaston Mills is a family business that started in 1899 and has been making bedding for the healthcare and hospitality market for over 122 years.
To create the ultimate guest experience, operators of luxury hotels pay close attention to every detail, from amenities in the room such as the shampoo and the coffee to the cookies they give out upon registration and, of course, to the quality and feel of the sheets on the bed. It is these details that make the 5-star hotel experience. There are four main components that hotel operators look for when they purchase bedding: Fiber, Weave, Color, Construction, and Care.
Hotels look for a fiber that is durable, easy to care for, and comfortable. Overwhelmingly 5-star hotels will choose cotton or a cotton/polyester blend. Cotton is hypoallergenic, so hotel guests aren’t at risk of allergic reactions or irritated skin. Natural cotton is breathable, machine washable, and permits airflow to cool the sheets. Many properties will choose a blend of cotton and polyester which proves a bit easier to iron when using commercial ironing equipment.
Crisp yet comfortable is what every hotel guest loves about the sheets at high-end luxury hotels. Fabric made using a percale weave is overwhelmingly the top choice. What is percale? It is one of the most durable weaves produced. Thanks to its tighter weave, percale is naturally soft and crisp but resistant to tears, abrasions, and pilling. To create the weave, the yarns alternate between the vertical warp thread and the horizontal weft or fill thread. It’s like an over-and-under basket weave structured ever so tightly.
Again, overwhelmingly hotel proprietors choose white bedding. First, it goes with every décor, so redecoration of the room does not necessitate a change of the linens. Second behavioral psychologists have determined that guests associate this color with comfort and cleanliness.
If the fitted sheets do not stay on the corners or the flat sheets are not big enough to tuck in, the guest will not get the good night's sleep they expect. If holes develop after a few washes or the elastic rips off, housekeeping will have to replace bedding more often, leading to increased expenses. For such an essential part of the guest experience, it is crucial that the right bedding manufacturer is chosen, one that supplies only top-quality long-lasting products.
Below are a few industry secrets.
I know this may seem complicated, but all you must do is try our American Blossom cotton linens because they are hotel-inspired sheets made by one of the largest and oldest hotel sheet manufacturers in the USA
