THE RETAILERS: The bed is available at shopmarriott.com as well as some Jamison retailers such as Good Morning Mattress Center ("A" BBB rating).
The ratings below are based on 45 consumer reviews for the foam models – not the innerspring model. The data was gathered using an unbiased, accurate methodology.
|Owner satisfaction||b||The Marriott Bed has 82% owner satisfaction. ( ). Owners who purchase a Marriott Bed package – bed, linens, topper, comforter and pillows – tend to be somewhat more satisfied than owners who buy only the mattress.
|Durability / longevity||c||At least 15% of owners report sagging / body impression development. This rate is about average for foam beds.|
|Price||c||Marriott Beds cost $900-$1650 depending on size. Shipping is an additional $325+ when buying through shopmarriott.com. Purchasing an entire package (bed, topper, linens, etc.) will increase the price considerably, up to $2800.|
|Reduced pain / pressure points||b||The bed performs well on this issue for most owners, similar to foam mattresses overall. (See mattresses and pain relief for analysis.)|
|Motion isolation||b||Motion made on the bed is fairly well localized and, as a result, the mattress is generally couple friendly.|

|Easy to move on / get up off||b-||Owner experience data suggests that only when the mattress has sagged / developed body impressions can moving on the bed be difficult. However, a lack of side support can make getting up off the bed somewhat difficult.|

|No noise||a||The mattress is silent under all conditions.|
|Good for sex||c+||Like all foam mattresses, the Marriott Bed mostly lacks a bounce effect which some people say undermines the quality of love making. See mattresses and sex.|
