Who’s Going to Love It

Who Should Steer Clear

  • Firm mattress fans—instead, try Brooklyn Bedding’s firmest mattress, the Plank.

Brooklyn Sedona Mattress Video Review

Want a visual look at the features of the Brooklyn Sedona mattress? Check out our video review by our certified Mattress Nerd, Adrianne.

Brooklyn Sedona Mattress Firmness & Feel

Brooklyn Sedona Firmness

Here at Mattress Nerd, we rate mattress firmness on a scale from 1–10, with one being the softest mattress you can imagine and 10 being the firmest. The Brooklyn Bedding Sedona earned a 5.5/10 on our firmness scale, meaning it’s a tad softer than the typical medium-firm mattress

The Sedona is topped with a collection of soft foam layers that are great for side and back sleepers, particularly those with lightweight (< 130 lbs) and average-weight (130–230 lbs) body types. However, its cushiony feel isn’t quite supportive enough for stomach sleepers, especially those with heavyweight body types (> 230 lbs).  

What Does the Brooklyn Sedona Mattress Feel Like?

The Brooklyn Sedona has lofty foam layers that provide excellent pressure relief. It has a foundation of springy, supportive coils, which balances out the “hug” of the soft foams. The ideal candidate for this mattress is someone who likes to be cradled by their bed without feeling stuck.

What Sleeping Position Is the Brooklyn Sedona Best For?

Body Type: BACK SLEEPERS STOMACH SLEEPERS SIDE SLEEPERS
Lightweight (< 130 lbs):  5 3 4
Average-weight (130–230 lbs): 5 2 5
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):  4 2 3

1 = Very poor, 2 = Not good, 3 = Fair, 4 = Good, 5 = Excellent

Back Sleepers

The Brooklyn Sedona is one of the best mattresses for back sleepers, especially lightweight and average-weight folks. Its contouring memory foam and individually-encased coils support the spine’s natural “S” curve, helping sleepers wake up with fewer aches and pains. Heavyweight individuals who sleep on their backs will either find the Sedona very comfortable or want something with greater firmness near the hips.

Side Sleepers

The Brooklyn Sedona is a good side sleeper mattress. It’s soft enough to cushion the hips and shoulders and supportive enough to minimize excess sinkage. The Sedona’s medium firmness is the best for average-weight side sleepers, although most lightweight and heavyweight sleepers also enjoy the feel. Some lighter people may want an even softer mattress, while some heavyweight side sleepers may prefer a bed with more support.  

For other top picks, check out the beds that made our best mattresses for side sleepers list.  

Stomach Sleepers

The best mattresses for stomach sleepers tend to be firmer, with enough support to keep the hips from dipping too far into the top layer. Because the Brooklyn Sedona is a touch softer than your average bed and has plush layers of foam, it’s not going to provide the best spinal alignment for stomach sleepers. While lightweight stomach sleepers may enjoy the Sedona, average-weight and heavyweight stomach sleepers should choose something firmer.   

Combination Sleepers

Combination sleepers change position throughout the night, necessitating a bed that supports each of their sleeping positions, along with ease of movement. The Sedona’s springy coil system supports movements, and its medium firmness is a good fit for lightweight sleepers of every sleeping position. The Sedona is also great for average-weight combination sleepers, so long as you don’t spend too much time sleeping on your front. 

If you’re a heavyweight combination sleeper, you’d be better supported on a firmer mattress. Head over to our best mattresses for combination sleepers compilation for some options.

Brooklyn Sedona Mattress Performance

Is the Brooklyn Sedona Mattress Cooling?

No one wants to wake up in the middle of the night hot and sweaty. While some mattresses with memory foam layers trap too much body heat, the Sedona’s cooling innovations combat this common mattress woe. Cooling yarns along the surface and gel throughout the memory foam layers encourage heat to transfer away from the body, while breathable coils further minimize heat retention. The result is one of the best cooling mattresses for hot sleepers.   

Edge Support

In mattress lingo, “edge support” refers to the strength of the bed around its perimeter. Though the Sedona uses a thick layer of supportive coils in the bed’s core, our team found that its edge support didn’t quite meet our expectations. We didn’t feel as if we’d fall off the bed when we rested along the edge or sat on the side, but the edge support wasn’t ideal for anyone who wants to spend much time sitting on the sides of the bed. 

Responsiveness

The Sedona is soft enough to hug your body, which normally makes it difficult to change sleeping positions; however, it also has bounce from the coil base layer. If you toss and turn, you should have a fairly easy time going from position A to position B. For an even more responsive mattress, choose materials like latex, polyfoam, and coils.

Motion Isolation: Is it good for those who share a bed?

If you co-sleep with a partner or pet, you may sleep more soundly on a bed that cuts down on motion isolation. Motion isolation is a mattress’s ability to keep movement from transferring from one side of the mattress to the other. 

Even with an 8” layer of bouncy coils at its base, the soft slow-response foams in the Sedona are great for cutting down on motion transfer. In our motion transfer test, the Sedona performed exceptionally well for a hybrid mattress, with similar motion isolation properties as most all-foam or memory foam mattresses.

Noise

We didn’t notice any noise coming from our Brooklyn Sedona mattress.

Pain Relief

People with arthritis or other joint pain conditions need a bed with a soft enough surface to avoid aggravating sensitive areas. The Brooklyn Bedding Sedona pairs a thin layer of ultra-soft foam with two contouring layers of memory foam for a comfort system that’s excellent for sleepers with joint pain.

As for the Sedona’s support for people with back pain, we believe that it’s best suited for lightweight and average-weight back sleepers. Stomach sleepers, especially those with heavyweight body types, won’t get enough support to eliminate or avoid lower back pain.  The softness of the foam layers is likely to create too much sinkage at the hips to maintain good spinal alignment. 

Sex

When determining whether or not a mattress is good for sex, we look at how fast it responds to changes in position, how cool it keeps you, and whether or not it makes noise. With those qualifications, the Sedona is a great mattress for sex, since it’s responsive, temperature-neutral, and quiet.

Off-Gassing

When you unbox your new mattress, expect a slight odor—termed “off-gassing”— as the foams slowly decompress. The scent should fade within a few days, if not sooner. We noticed a slight off-gassing odor when unboxing our Brooklyn Sedona, but it was gone after 24 hours.

Durability

When it comes to durability, the Sedona’s steel coils and high-density foams lead us to expect it to last slightly longer than your average seven years. However, its soft surface foams may form body impressions or soften over the years, so we don’t expect it to remain comfortable past 10 years of regular use.

Brooklyn Sedona Mattress Construction: What’s It Made Of?

The Sedona hybrid mattress combines foam layers with a durable innerspring support system. The cooling cover, gel-infused foams, and breathable coils minimize heat retention, while the memory foams cradle the body for a soft, lightly enveloping surface. The Sedona is much thicker than your average mattress, which is why it’s both more supportive and pressure-relieving than the typical hybrid bed. 

Layer #1—Cooling Knit Cover: The Sedona cover contains advanced cooling fabric, giving the mattress a distinct cool-to-the-touch feel. 

Layer #2—Premium Comfort Foam (1”): plush foam top layer creates a cloud-like feel and provides immediate cushion to joints. 

Layer #3—Gel Memory Foam (2”): A thick layer of dense memory foam brings contouring that hugs the body for excellent pressure relief. The entire layer contains cooling gel to combat heat retention. 

Layer #4—Max-Density Gel Memory Foam (1”): Dense memory foam supports the spine and hips, providing superb spinal alignment for most back and side sleepers

Layer #5—Transition Foam (1”): Ultra-durable polyfoam protects the body’s deeper curves from the supportive coil system below. 

Layer #6—Ascension X Coils (8”): A thick layer of pocketed coils delivers targeted cushion and support, along with generous airflow for a cool night’s sleep. These coils bring a slightly springy responsiveness that stops sleepers from feeling trapped in the memory foam layers above. 

Layer #5—High-Density Support Foam (1”): A thin layer of durable base foam adds longevity and support to the Sedona mattress.

How Do the Policies Measure Up?

Shipping & Unboxing

Every Brooklyn Bedding mattress ships for free to customers in the contiguous U.S. from a local factory in Phoenix, Arizona. Brooklyn Bedding can ship to Canada, Alaska, or Hawaii for a non-refundable shipping fee. Shipping time averages three to five business days. 

Brooklyn Bedding is a bed-in-a-box online mattress brand, meaning your new mattress ships compressed in a box that arrives on your doorstep. It took us just over two minutes to set up our Sedona mattress. We recommend having two or three people for set up.

Warranty

Brooklyn Bedding’s 10-year warranty is typical for a new mattress. It covers defects in materials or workmanship, so contact Brooklyn Bedding’s customer service team if you feel that something is off with your bed that might be covered. Common claims include things like body impressions and foam degradation.

To keep your bed covered under warranty, it should be properly supported from day one. A bed frame or foundation must be supportive and provide little-to-no flex. Adjustable bases, new box springs, and sturdy foundations are all good options. Poor support can lead to sagging and softening that isn’t covered by the warranty. Stains and spills can also void coverage, which is why we recommend using a waterproof mattress protector.

Trial Period & Returns

The Sedona comes with a 120-night trial period, which is slightly longer than the industry-standard of 100 nights. Brooklyn Bedding asks that you give the Sedona a try for 30 days before returning it. The 30-night waiting period is a common mattress return policy requirement as it provides time for you to get used to the new bed, just as you might need to break in a new pair of tennis shoes. 

During the sleep trial, pay attention to things like how you feel in the morning and how well you sleep at night. If you discover that the Sedona isn’t a good fit, contact Brooklyn Bedding to start a return. You will need to have the bed donated or recycled and provide proof to Brooklyn Bedding. After you’ve completed the return, expect a full refund in around a week.

Addressing Brooklyn Sedona Complaints

  • Not supportive enough for stomach sleepers: The medium firmness and enveloping comfort layers don’t offer the level of support needed along the hips of most stomach sleepers. The result is poor spinal support and potential back pain
  • Above-average pricing: At $2399.00 for a Queen size mattress, the Sedona’s price point is roughly twice that of the average hybrid bed. While the Sedona’s high-quality construction and exceptional comfort may warrant the high price, it’s out of the budget for many shoppers. 
  • Mediocre edge support: The Sedona’s plush comfort foam doesn’t hold up well to excess pressure along the edges. For instance, you might feel a bit unsteady if you spend much time sitting along the Sedona’s edges.

The Brooklyn Aurora is a luxury hybrid mattress that comes in three firmness levels: soft, medium, and firm. The medium Aurora has a similar feel to the Sedona, though it’s a bit firmer. The soft Aurora best suits lightweight side sleepers, and the firm Aurora is best for stomach sleepers and heavyweight people. 

Both beds have the feel of a high-end hotel mattress, but the Aurora sleeps even cooler than the Sedona. The Sedona is better suited to couples, thanks to superb motion isolation and a balance between cushion and support that accommodates various sleeping styles.

The Brooklyn Bowery is a hybrid mattress with a similar foam-and-coils construction as the Sedona, though it’s built for value shoppers instead of luxury shoppers. The other main difference is that the Bowery is a firmer medium-firm mattress, while the Sedona is softer and more pressure-relieving.

Opt for the Bowery if you’re a stomach sleeper, like a firmer surface, or don’t have a big budget. Go with the Sedona if you’re a side sleeper or someone who prefers a cloud-like mattress that doesn’t overheat.

The Brooklyn Signature is a budget-friendly hybrid mattress with multiple firmness options, including soft, medium, and firm. It can work for sleepers of every body type and sleeping position—most of all back sleepers.

In contrast, the Sedona comes in one medium firmness level that’s best for back and stomach sleepers, as well as those who change positions during the night. It’s more expensive than the Signature, but isolates motion and regulates temperature better than the Signature.

The Sedona has a more enveloping feel with superior pressure relief for side sleepers. It’s priced a little higher than the Saatva, but it also outperforms the Saatva in motion isolation and pressure relief. Keep in mind that the Saatva comes with free white glove delivery and old mattress removal.

The DreamCloud and Brooklyn Sedona are both high-quality hybrid mattresses made from layers of memory foam, polyfoam, and pocketed coils. The biggest difference between these beds is their firmness—the DreamCloud is a firmer medium-firm, while the Sedona has a softer medium-firm feel.

As a result, we recommend the Sedona for side sleepers and people with joint pain. The DreamCloud is better for stomach sleepers and those with back pain. Back sleepers, hot sleepers, couples, and combination sleepers could go either way. The DreamCloud will cost you less.

When it comes to construction, only the Sedona has memory foam, and the resulting body-hugging feel is better for those seeking joint pain relief. But with the WinkBed’s Zoned Support coils, it’s one of the best mattresses for back pain

Brooklyn Sedona Mattress FAQs

How long does Brooklyn Bedding take to expand?

Brooklyn Bedding mattresses are rolled and compressed for easy shipment. Most beds reach their full height in just a few hours, but sometimes it takes a day or two for your new bed to fully inflate. It only took a few minutes for ours to reach full size.

Which Brooklyn Bedding mattress is best for side sleepers?

Brooklyn Bedding has multiple mattresses that offer the pressure relief and softness needed by side sleepers. Our top picks include the Brooklyn Aurora, Brooklyn Sedona, and Brooklyn Signature beds. The Aurora and Signature mattresses have multiple firmness options, and side sleepers typically prefer the softest models.

The Nerd’s Take: What’s the Bottom Line?

The Brooklyn Bedding Sedona is a hybrid mattress with a luxurious feel. Most side and back sleepers will appreciate its pressure relief and moderate body contouring. With cooling additions, the Sedona is also an excellent fit for hot sleepers. Couples will appreciate how well it isolates motion.

Because the Sedona has generous layers of comfort foam, it’s not firm enough for most heavyweight people and stomach sleepers. It’s also more expensive than most hybrid mattresses, so it’s best for luxury mattress shoppers.
