While visiting Denver for work, I tried Airbnb for the first time. Late adopter, that’s me. It worked out mostly perfectly. That first morning, waking up in Denver, I had a single thought. “These pillows are so comfortable.” I stayed over at a friend’s house a couple of weeks later. Again, I woke up thinking about how much I liked the pillows. Three weeks ago, I left my teenager behind to make the long drive to Illinois, to join my siblings in clearing out my mother’s house. Nothing about that trip felt comfortable. I stayed one night at a Marriott that was conveniently located along the highway just outside of Elkhart, Indiana. I woke up in the morning feeling, oddly, comfortable. It was the pillows. They were a welcome tender mercy. I pulled off the pillowcase and protector to find a message.
Considering all the difficult and confusing things that were happening, this clarity of message was another tender mercy. Yes. I want this pillow. When I returned home the following week, retail therapy was on my agenda.
Want This Pillow leads right to a Marriott shopping site. Marriott must have gotten so many requests for their comfy comforters, pillows, mattresses, and bedding that they went ahead and made them available to the public. There are several websites that offer Marriott brand bedding. A quick Google search leads me to believe that at least one is having a sale at any given time.
Even including the hefty (and mandatory) overnight shipping fee, the bedding is reasonably priced. The feather and down pillows are soft and supportive and ever so comforting. Now I’m thinking about the down duvet cover. Hmmm ….
