Beautyrest Mattress Comparison Guide and Review 2017

By The Mattress Nerd

As you may have noticed, it’s difficult to comparison shop for mattresses between retailers because they often have different names for what seems to be the same exact mattress. Or, the retailer will claim their mattress is an exclusive, or their model has some feature that nobody else has that makes it different. How then will you take advantage of the price match guarantees that so many places offer? We’re here to help!

Retail mattress stores often make it difficult to comparison shop mattresses. Each retailer will have a different name for the same (or almost the same) product. Furthermore, not every store lists detailed specs about whats in their mattresses, so it can be even more confusing. Sometimes, a mattress selling for about $1,000 at one store is going for over $2,000 at another store.

To help counter this, I’ve put together these two comparison charts for Simmons Beautyrest.

Beautyrest has several different lineups. The “Silver” lineup is the entry level Beautyrest line. They have regular innerspring mattresses and “hybrid” mattresses which have a flatter top and thinner quilt layer, putting you closer to the foam layer. Older model years used to call this level “Classic” or “Recharge.”

There is also the “Platinum” level, which is their mid-range to higher end mattresses. These used to be called “World Class” in previous model years. These also come in regular innerspring models and hybrid models.

The two comparison charts below will help you compare those models at various retailers.

A few notes:

  • The mattresses might not be identical, but they will be close. Some retailers will add a small “exclusive” feature which is generally cosmetic or minor to make it technically a different mattress
  • Mattress Firm has a lot of exclusives in the Beautyrest brand. See my article on comparison shopping at Mattress Firm for suggestions.
  • Macy’s doesn’t have the Platinum lineup. They still have ones they’re calling “World Class.” Their World Class models are similar to the Platinum ones, but have enough differences that I wasn’t comfortable putting them in the chart
  • When comparing prices, make sure you’re comparing apples to apples. Make sure that you’re comparing the same size, whether or not it has a boxspring, how much delivery is, etc.
  • If comparison shopping is too stressful, consider getting a Tomorrow Sleep, which is by the makers of Beautyrest. It’s a direct to consumer mattress by Simmons (technically Serta Simmons Bedding) with a free return policy. Read my Tomorrow Sleep review here.


The 2017 Beautyrest offerings give you lots to choose from in their Silver (basic) and Platinum (higher end) lines. That is what you’ll be getting if you feel most comfortable shopping with a major national retailer.

Both lines feature traditional innerspring mattresses and hybrid mattresses that combine a revamped coil system with a foam layer at the top. The basic Silver line used to be called “Classic” or “Recharge” lines in previous years. The nicely priced higher-end Platinum line used to be known as the “World Class” line. Don’t forget those names Depending on where you’re shopping, they all mean something.

The charts above help you sort out every Beautyrest 2017 permutation.

The Silver line features level 1, level 2—the coil system models—and hybrids. The chart for the Silver line above breaks down all of the names and firmness levels by their official names, their U.S. names and what they’re known as if you’re shopping at Amazon, Macy’s or Sears.

The Platinum line includes the coil system-only and the hybrid options. The chart breaks down names and firmness levels by their official names, their U.S. names what they’re known by if you’re looking for them at Amazon or Sears. You won’t find the Platinum at Macy’s. But know that they sell very similar mattresses under the old name of “World Class.”

Remember not every mattress will be identical from column to column. Retailers can add some minor feature to differentiate it from other competitors. One retailer that exploits this technique is Mattress Firm.

Beautyrest has the heft among the retail marketplace to flood it with multiple collections. Their 2017 offerings included both hybrid and innerspring models at different firmness levels and prices. It’s what you should expect from a national brand and that’s what this Simmons Beautyrest collection delivers here.

  1. I had the best sleep of my life while staying with friends. We were able to obtain the mattress information they still had, but cannot find the mattress anywhere, or the newer model. Any chance you can assist?

    It was called the Simmons Beautyrest Orchid Lake Luxury Firm.

    Thank You!

  2. Hi i have aa simmons beautyres cresccendo wagner in king size bought in 2012 had great sleep in this model but unfortunately it is starting to sag which model could be at least same or better in this year sept 2018 thank you for advice sleep is really essential !

  3. What beautyrest bed is most like the Heavenly Bed found at the Westin? Trying to avoid the large price tag on the heavenly bed. Thank you

  4. I am trying to find beauty rest recharge by Simmons hospitality. Had the best nights sleep at a holiday inn and took picture of their mattress tag. Can you tell me where I can find this mattress?

  5. What would be a comparable current model to theSimmons Beautyrest Do Not Disturb Majesty Mattress and Box Springs. It was purchased in 2001. We love the firmness! Thanks

  6. I went to Mattress Firm and saw a McFarland Firm Queen. Do you know if there are other names for this same mattress?

    Thank you!

  7. I went to Raymour and Flannigan and they had a mattress called the Silver Harper Extra firm. Is that their version of the Beautyrest extra firm 800 from Amazon?

    • First, I am an affiliate for Amazon, so my answer may be biased, but I wouldn’t be an affiliate for Amazon if I didn’t think it was safe. To say that Amazon is a large reputable company is an understatement. They’re famous for their customer service, so you should be fine.

  8. I am considering purchasing a clearance mattress that’s been on the floor “a couple of years”. It’s a Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Royal Star Pillowtop, I think. Salesman said it originally a $3,000 and now it’s $900. Does that sound like a deal, or a rip-off? Thanks

  9. Hello,
    My given a Simmons Beautyrest Pure Encouraging ST, full size. It is extremely comfortable. Is there any you would know the time period it was manufactured in original MSRP price? THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

  10. Hello Mattress Nerd,

    I am looking to get a new mattress similar to my old one which was a Beautyrest Anniversary purchased in March 2011. What is a comparable model today?


  11. Hello! Is there really a difference in feel between the beautyrest silver plush pillow top level 1 and level 2? I ordered level 2 but they accidentally brought level 1. Not sure if I should just keep it and skip the hassle. I do like it.

  12. Hello, I wonder if you can help me comparing the Beautyrest Platinum Holloway Extra Firm from MattressFirm to the Macy’s Beautyrest Platinum Chestnut Hill 12.5″ Extra Firm and the Beautyrest Platinum Spring Grove 13-inch Extra Firm on Overstock. The Macy’s one is by far the most expensive, but I’m not sure if its superior to the other two anyways, since it also says it has a “titanium mesh for 15% more lumbar support”. I got the MattressFirm guy to lower the King price to $500 below the Macy’s price, but my wife says she can feel the Macy’s one is better, and I seem to feel some difference as well and if there is anything to the titanium mesh for longevity and support and prevention of sagging…is there really anything to it?

    • There’s nothing to the titanium. Sticking a thin piece of metal under foam does not mean the foam won’t lose its resilience over time. That’s just a property of the foam.

  13. We bought a Beauty Rest Recharge St Caroline Luxery Firm mattress from Sears in 2016. We want to buy another one from Sears with their big sale but they have discontinued that model name. Do you know what they call that particular mattress now?
    Thanks, Dean Stone

  14. We bought a queen beautyrest Florence in 2007 and love it. Now we would like to upgrade to a king and just purchase the same mattress but of course they do not sell it anymore. Do you know of a comparable mattress we can focus on? Possibly a comparable one that is not as expensive. Thanks for your help.

  15. awesome man, you are genius and really helpful soul.
    I am sure you are also burdened and intimidated by the thought of buying right and expensive mattress.

    Thanks a lot for your help

  16. Raymour and Flanigan have the Beautyrest Silver “Florence” Luxury firm Pillow top, is it the same quality as the “Golden gate” Macy’s has??

  17. I live in Canada. I bought a Simmons Beautyrest Black -way too firm -my body was aching! Now I have Beautyrest Hotel 6 which is their ultra plush but is still too firm for me. What to do? I used to have a Searsopedic which aas nice & soft

  18. To Shan K.
    I like that type too. The Platinum Hybrids are a very similar feel. The Alcove is supposedly the medium firmness but feels soft to me. So maybe Luxury firm or plush would be close to Alcove. And they are last years models-can get a king for about $1575.

  19. I was interested in the Beautyrest Gladney or Alcove, but then I tried the Sears Beautyrest Delilah Plush and it felt so much “richer”. Is the construction better than the first 2 I mentioned? In the chart you say that the Delilah Plush is equal to the Quinn Ultra Plush, not the Bryson Plush. Us Mattress has an article that says Delilah equal to the Vanity/Bryson plush and I just want to clarify before I do an online order. Also, do you think I should wait for the Beautyrest Emerald falls-will it be “better” than the Delilah? I can’t find the exact foam specs on Delilah but its available on the other models.

    • The Delilah isn’t the same as either the Quinn or the Bryson. I had to make a judgment call about which is was most similar to. If you look at the weight of the mattress, it’s heavier than either, and it uses a layer of latex.

      So to the best of my knowledge, the Delilah was exclusive to Sears, and I figured the most comparable one in quality was the Quinn. They were not exact matches.

      The Emerald Falls has changed some things, but it doesn’t look clearly better or worse. I’m sure they made some minor upgrades, but it isn’t likely worth going crazy over.

  20. Love your site, very informative ( I hate mattress buying). I recently went to a store called Bedderest in Maine, that had a Simmons Beautyrest Silver model which on label says North Cape Luxury Firm Pillow Top. I coul dnot find anything on line regarding what this mattress is compared to or whether it isa newer or older version. Any info appreciated. Thanks

  21. I now have a Simmons Beautyrest Grand Luxe Pillow Top 24296 R mattress. I am looking for the same or one that is very close to it.

  22. I am looking for an equivalent mattress to the Beautyrest black ALCOVE sold at mattress firm. Any idea what would be the equivalent mattress at US-mattress or amazon for this one?
