Commercial mattresses differ considerably from residential ones. They have a superior comfort level that makes you want to stay in your hotel or motel longer. That begs the question, "What type of mattresses do they use?" Before you learn the different types of commercial mattresses available, you should know that most hotels get theirs specially made by the manufacturers. The good news is they can also make one for you. However, not all manufacturers sell to regular customers, so you need to do a little digging to find one that can customise your mattress.
