Marriott Bed Ratings

The ratings – based on 50+ consumer reviews gathered using an unbiased, accurate methodology – show how the Marriott Bed (foam) compares to the average mattress.

Owner satisfaction b- The Marriott Bed has 78% owner satisfaction. Learn more.
Durability / longevity c+ About 15% of owners report sagging / body impression development occurring within three years of ownership. This rate is about average for foam beds.
Price C A queen on average sells for $1500.
Support C Like foam mattresses in general, support is neither a clear strength nor clear weakness of the bed.
Conforming ability b A highly conforming bed is one that molds and contours to one's body resulting in a cradling, cloud-like, pressure-point-free sensation. The Marriott Bed performs somewhat above average.
Less (back) pain B- The bed appears to perform slightly above average on this issue. (See mattresses and pain relief for general analysis.)
Motion isolation b Motion made on the bed is fairly well localized and, as a result, the mattress is generally couple friendly.
No initial odor / off gassing c Some instances of significant off gassing have been reported. (See mattress off gassing for more analysis.)
Edge support D+ As is often true for foam-based mattresses, support near the edge of the bed may be inadequate for sleeping or sitting.
No sleeping hot c- About 6% of owners report the mattress acting as a heat trap.
Firmness options D Only one foam-based model is available which owners tend to describe as medium-firm.
Back sleep friendly B The bed provides both the firmness and conforming ability that most back sleepers prefer.
Side sleep friendly C+ Some side sleepers – especially those of small size – may find the mattress too firm.
Front sleep friendly B- The bed tends to be well suited for front / stomach sleep.
No noise a The mattress is silent under all conditions.
Good for sex c+ See mattresses and sex.
Lightweight c A mattress and foundation together weigh about 130-250 lbs depending on size.
Delivery time C- Delivery time is often several weeks when buying from shopmarriott.com; significantly less time when buying from Good Morning Mattress Center.
Warranty c+ The warranty is for 10-15 years, which is about average compared to other foam mattresses. (See mattress warranties: what to know.)
Return policy D+ The mattress cannot be returned when buying from shopmarriott.com; Good Morning Mattress Center accepts returns for 30 days.

Owner Satisfaction

With 78% owner satisfaction, the Marriott Bed bed rates slightly lower than foam-based mattresses overall (81%) but better than all mattresses overall (72%). 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.
