Des Plaines, IL (PRWEB) April 29, 2009
Surveys show that most Americans take bedding into account when choosing a hotel. But although pleasing guests remains of utmost importance, the cost of replacing a fleet of mattresses or decorative bedding in today's economy can stretch a hotel's budget.
At the upcoming HD Expo & Conference, May 13-16, 2009 in Las Vegas, top hospitality bedding manufacturer United Feather & Down will offer an economical alternative for hoteliers looking to change the look and feel of their beds without spending much time, effort or money: The Hospitality Quality Pillow and Pad Set. Each set features two of United Feather & Down's time-tested pillows along with a specially-crafted mattress pad, all of which will refresh and rejuvenate guests' sleep experience for much less than the cost of buying a new mattress set or decorative bedding. The sets will be offered in two styles - a "Super Topper" version that features a 2.5" thick mattress pad with a fitted skirt or an "Extra Protection" set featuring a reversible, stain-resistant and water-repellent mattress pad.
"2009 is forecasted to be the first year since 2003 that the U.S. lodging industry will spend less on beds and bedding than in the previous year, yet hotel guests will continue to look for the premium hotel sleep experience that they've become accustomed to," said Stephen Palmer, United Feather & Down co-president. "Our Hospitality Quality Pillow and Pad Set offers hoteliers a happy medium: proven quality and comfort to rejuvenate mattresses and satisfy guests, while remaining an economically viable solution for today's tighter budgets."
The Super Topper Pillow and Pad Set
The Super Topper Pillow and Pad Set features a 2.5" thick mattress pad that will add a supportive and soft, layer of form fitting comfort to any mattress. No-shift, diamond quilting prevents fill from shifting with use or washing, and the deep fitted skirt fits premium mattresses. Included are two pillows constructed from a high-quality, pre-shrunk 230-thread-count cambric cotton, double needle stitched and finished with cotton piping. Pillows are well-filled from corner to corner and both pillow and pad will meet the most demanding use.
The Extra Protection Pillow and Pad Set
The Extra Protection Pillow and Pad Set includes a stain-resistant, water-repellent, reversible mattress pad, as well as two coordinating pillows with an 8" diamond quilted cover for an extra layer of soft comfort and support.
Each Hospitality Quality Pillow and Pad Set is filled with Sensuelle™, a high-lofting, poly cluster fiber, and is carefully crafted featuring United Feather & Down's signature attention to detail.
During HD Expo, United Feather & Down will also be showcasing a select group of bedding collections that they have identified for their best overall value. Each of these collections is durable and long-lasting, as well as affordable and easy to maintain. In addition, designer hospitality bedding from Eileen West and Joseph Abboud™ will be shown.
