We all have our needs, right.

Hmmm, thank you. A lot of money to drop for a potentially leaky mattress. I would be pissed. They are not cheap beds, I think $1,500 at least for a King. I realize the Tempurpedic costs 2-3k I would just never pay that, can't swallow that when I slept good on a $500 queen set from Sams Club for 4 years.
I am willing to spend up to $1500 for a great bed.

Anyone have good comments about $5000 mattresses? I think you got taken in...
costing more does not mean better.
If you have $5,000 and up to spend and you want a high-quality traditional innerspring mattress, I recommend McRoskey. They can customize the firmness level to your taste with options that range from extra soft to extra firm. We had a lot of fun testing out all the different mattresses in the shop. They were all so comfortable, it was hard to decide. The extra soft was like floating on a cloud. We finally chose a medium firm queen mattress. It cost over $3,000 new but that was 15 years ago, and their prices have gone north of $5,000 for a queen. It's a very comfortable, well-made mattress that with minimal care will last 30, 40 years or more. So you may never have to buy another mattress.

I'm a big fan of the Lucid Mattress which is manufactured with natural bamboo. It keeps it's firmness with latex memory foam and gel layers that provide cooling. A king size was just $425 with free delivery and works on either a platform base or an adjustable bed. https://lucidmattress.com/products/1...tress-by-lucid

Thanks everyone. Keep ideas/comments coming. We have our house for sale and will probably get rid of bed (or leave it) when we move. It is a King size and it takes 4 ppl to move it up and down stairs. Love the size of the bed but I need something VERY soft like a giant pillow.

Has anyone ever used the Marriott Hotel pillow topper or mattress cover that they sell? Maybe I can salvage the bed with a giant pillow.

I, too, am a fan of Lucid mattresses. I have a 10" medium firmness. I also bought a Lucid adjustable platform. Together they both cost me under $500. I love my bed now! I really appreciate the gel that keeps it cooler in the summer. That's really important in SWFL!!

It is not leaky. It adjusts to an individual and stays there until a new setting is desired. When I sit on my bed to watch TV I pump it up to 100. When I sleep I dial it down to 40 or 45 depending on how my body feels.

I do best with a mattress that has a both firm core and some sort of soft topper/padding.

Quality beds that are designed for hotel/motel use really impressive in comfort and they hold up very well.

Thanks good to know.

I will be mattress shopping in a few months and will check out the sleep number.
