When I opened my vacation rental to guests in 2009, my first project was to find the best hotel bedding on the market. From day one, I wanted to think of my rental as a true hospitality business, and of course, great hospitality starts in bed.
I did a ton of research into what bedding hotels were using and why. I quickly learned that it’s all about finding the balance between “sustainable” and “luxurious.” The higher your nightly rate, the more you want to tip toward “luxurious.” (I give major side-eye to anyone who recommends microfiber sheets to a $500-a-night rental!)
But regardless of your nightly rate, you still want bedding that is easy to launder, wrinkle-free, and stands the test of time. Below are some of TDG’s resources for finding hotel bedding and managing a linen program for your vacation rental, Airbnb, inn, or other independent hospitality business.
Because there are some things hotels get right—and bedding is one of them!
