Westin Heavenly Bed collection available for home purchase

This post on Luxist reports that the Westin Heavenly Bed, mattress and associated linens, is available for purchase for you home.  From the post, here’s the pricing:

The Westin Heavenly Bed At Home Collection will be priced at $35 to $300 for the sheets and $1,250 to $1,450 for the mattress. The entire ten-layer setup can be purchased for upwards of $3,600.

The Westin Heavenly collection will be available for purchase at select Nordstrom stores nationwide.

I’ve stayed in the Westin Heavenly bed before and it’s nice, but doesn't seem worth the $3,600+ pricetag.  I would say you can get the same level of comfort with the following:

  • Denver Mattress Company Doctor’s Choice mattress — costs about $600 for the king size mattress and boxspring.
  • Lilac Season’s 1000 thread count sheets from Linens-n-Things — costs about $300 for the king size set (you can buy multiple sets and create 10 layers if you wish)
  • Pillows, comforter, and blanket — buy Hotel Collection items at Foley’s, Mervyn’s, Macy’s, etc. — just wait until they run a coupon in the paper for 10–15% off (you can open a store card and generally save an additional 10–15% if you want)

Just my $0.02.

Thanks for your $0.02 cents. I ordered my Heavenly Bed from Nordstrons 17 days ago. It takes up to 30 days as they build it to order. Having said that, I can't wait for it to arrive. Everynight my wife and I cound down the days.

Sure, you could save a couple hundred bucks by mixing and matching. But where else can you buy a bed that you've had several nights of good rest on ... before making the "big decision". My two cents, for what it's worth is... If you know it's good, don't mess around with it. I'd rather over pay a litte and get a really great bed.
