I enjoyed Valli Herman's article "Grab More Than Just the Towels" [April 19]. My wife and I recently stayed at Marriott's Grand Chateau in Las Vegas. Both of us have arthritic backs, and we were amazed at the comfort of the mattress in our room. We contacted Marriott and were told that we slept on a memory foam mattress made by Jamison and that we could purchase one through marriott. It cost $1,900.
Jamison mattresses are made on the East Coast and are not easily available in California. Our mattress set arrived four weeks after we placed our order. Comparable mattresses at discount stores in Southern California would have cost more than $4,000, and we would not have had the luxury of sleeping on them for several days. We are pleased with our purchase and the monetary savings.
