Among the product lines of Therapedic International is bedding for the hospitality industry (hotels and motels, resorts and spas, bed & breakfast homes), as well as institutions.
Therapedic Hospitality mattresses is a rather diverse product group, due in large part to customization for specific customers and the structure of the corporation: "As a group of independent bedding manufacturers with locations around the world, Therapedic has the flexibility and the capacity to service the entire hospitality industry, from B&Bs to independent hotels and large chains."
This leads to wide latitude among licensees. First, most licensees do not describe Therapedic products on their websites, but some do, such as Cascade Manufacturing in Washington State and Sleep Therapedic in Jamaica.
Therapedic's Hospitality page is geared for owners and managers of hospitality businesses. The heading is, "It's More Than a Good Night's Sleep – It's Your Livelihood." It stresses how critical "a good night’s sleep" is to the guest. A number of mattress features as they relate to the hospitality industry are briefly covered: Flexible Design, Fabric, Comfort Layers, Support Systems, Foundation and Safety. For instance, in regard to fabric, they say, "Therapedic’s product designers can help you balance the needs of your housekeeping staff with the desires of your guests."
The longest discussion is on Support Systems. As covered in mattress reviews on Beds.org, the support system is the most critical factor in the comfort, healthfulness, and durability of a bed.
Cascade Manufacturing has posted a logo on their Hospitality page: A Touch of Paradise Bedding. This name reflects their outlook on what image hospitality beds should evoke, a feeling of being in Paradise.
The Jamaica licensee, Sleep Therapedic, lists several of their hospitality mattress models, with descriptions of all but one: Legend "Celebrity" (not described), Hospitality Superior, Flamboyant Superior - Hotel Edition, Super Suite - Hotel Edition, Pleasant Sleeper - Hotel Edition. As the names show, most of these are hotel editions of Sleep Therapedic's consumer mattresses.
All the described models are innerspring mattresses. The kind of springs is not named, but the identical coil counts (336) and gauge (13 ga.) indicate that they are all Bonnell coils (though they could be large diameter offset coils). Edge support is either triple edge or double edge. Posted photos (especially of pillowtop models) reveals that these mattresses are two-sided.
Hospitality beds from other licencees may have memory foam or latex in their comfort layers. They may also use wool in the mattress. Also, other fibers in the covers, such as rayon, silk and cashmere, as well as linen, should not be ruled out.
I do not know all of the hospitality businesses that use Therapedic mattresses, but there are several. Sleep Therapedic lists 17 hotels in the Caribbean they supply with mattresses, including well-known chains such as Hilton, Sandals Resorts, and RIU. Two hotels in the United States who name Therapedic beds in their room descriptions are The Sohotel on the Bowery in the Soho District of New York City and The Brick Hotel in Georgetown, Delaware. The Brick Hotel calls these "deluxe model[s]."
Just about any type of foundation may be used with a Hospitality bed by Therapedic, depending on the kind of mattress used. Among those named are box springs, solid top wooden bases, and adjustable beds (including with massage). Posted photos also indicate platform beds. British establishments probably use a divan of one type or another.
The warranties on Therapedic Hospitality mattresses are not listed—this may be determined in negotiations between the licensee and the establishment—but other examples suggest a period of 5 to 10 years.
