Chinese Pillows

Seems like everyone agrees that Chinese beds are hard - what about the pillows?

Most Chinese beds may be hard but the mattress I slept on in Shanghai last month was the best I have ever experienced! I went so far as to write to the Meridien Hotel to inquire about the manufacturer.

Locals prefer firm pillows at home but hotel pillows are mostly soft. Some are almost flabby so I used two.

EK: Were the Meridien mattresses made according to western standards?

S; Yes..like a western mattress but more comfortable than I had ever slept on. I could kick myself for not looking at the label. I contacted the hotel after I returned and they sent me the following contact:

Suzhou Shuilian Mattress Shanghai Branch
tel: 86-21-64873810

e-mail: [email protected] (actually there was no low dash; the entire name was underlined and for some reason the first name is not highlighted when I post on this site) It is Anna, space, then Huang with the @163.com.

Assuming that this meant that the mattress was manufactured in China and not available in the US, I did not contact Ms. Huang but I am now considering an e-mail just to double check. The mattress was not hard. The pillows were excellent but not out of the ordinary. The bed linens were very high quality cotton with a lightweight down comforter.
