WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The International Luxury Hotel Association is excited to announce that Simmons Bedding Company, LLC ("Simmons") is their exclusive Sleep Partner for the coming year, and will be sponsoring a session at the ILHA Fast Forward 2020 Conference, to be held 28-29 September 2015, in Orlando at the Orlando Convention Center. Steve Tipton, vice president of the Hospitality Group for Simmons, will also join the ILHA Advisory Board this year.
"Simmons is an industry innovator, constantly evolving their sleep technology to improve the guest experience and reduce the impact of their products and operations on the environment," said Barak Hirschowitz, President of the ILHA. "We are honored to have them as a partner in 2015."
Since the development of the Beautyrest® mattress in 1925, Simmons has been serving the hotel industry with innovative bedding solutions that deliver not only a compelling value proposition to hotel owners and operators, but also an exceptional night's sleep to guests. Decades of intense focus on innovation have made Simmons a recognized and trusted leader in hospitality bedding.
"Every day we think about the future; about how we can improve and move our products to
the next level," said Tipton. "If a guest has a great night's sleep, the room seems bigger, the food tastes better and the staff seems friendlier. It helps start their day off in a great, great way."
In a recent analysis of traveler's online reviews by TrustYou and published by Travel & Leisure in an online exclusive report, Simmons took 3 of the top 5 positions for most comfortable hotel bed, including the coveted number one spot for contributing to the New York Distrikt Hotel's guest sleep experience. It also took spots 9 through 13 of the top 20.
"We view hospitality as an extension of our brand," said Tipton. "We listen – to the needs of hospitality clients and guests – and innovate around both. Our focus? Ensuring our beds stay in hotels longer and deliver reliable, durable performance from the first day in a hotel room to its last."
