    Hmm, definitely depends on a lot of factors. Our bed at home isn't particularly nice, LOL, so it doesn't take a ton for hotel beds to be more comfortable. Also, hotels tend to have pretty good blackout curtains (as opposed to our east-facing bedroom that gets morning sun). But there's always the "being in a new place" factor that can affect my sleep at hotels. Plus thin walls! Hate when you get a neighbor who's cranked his TV or having an argument on the phone with someone late at night...

    My bed is super, with Egyptian cotton sheets, a goose down duvet, feather pillows and a soft mattress topper. The only similar beds we've tried have been on cruise ships, or superior hotels. Our bed is one of the best reasons for returning home.

    I have to chime in here with the fact that several of the hotels I stay in when in Italy are every bit as great a sleep as at home. I guess it has to depend on where I want to be. These are mostly two star hotels that I really like. In fact I consider Hotel Parlamento my "home in Rome."
