Sleep Like a Baby with 1 Simple Change to Your Beds

We all know that how much we enjoy our day has a lot to do with the amount—and the quality—of our sleep the night before. You’ve also probably heard that sleep is critical in staying healthy, managing pain, and forming new memories. But did you know that good pillows are the easiest way to ensure a good night’s sleep? And that changing out your pillows in your rental property is the quickest way to drastically change your guests’ experience for the better?

There is a plethora of pillows on the market, with various firmness, textures, sizes, and shapes. We’ve picked our favorites that will make sure your guests get a good night’s sleep and are geared up for sightseeing in Denver the next day. When your guests are well rested, they have more energy to explore Denver—and write you a positive review on Airbnb or VRBO at the end of their trip. Speaking of Airbnb and VRBO, feel free to mention the brand and type of pillows in your listing—it shows potential guests that you’ve put time and thought into making sure they’re comfortable during their stay at your home.


Our top choice: Coop Home Goods Shredded Hypoallergenic Memory Foam Pillow, from $50

This pillow outperforms and out-reviews any other pillow on the current market. The firmness can be adjusted by adding or removing foam, and the natural materials meet CertiPUR-US standards for allergy sufferers and guests sensitive to harsh materials. The removable fill also makes it easy to adjust the pillow to fit side, back, or stomach sleepers. Long-lasting and affordable, switching out your current pillows for these ones will make your Airbnb or VRBO rental property stand out from the rest.

At $19 for a 2-pack of queen-sized pillows, these fluffy pillows are definitely the winners when it comes to price. Hypo-allergenic with an anti-microbial finish, these fiber-filled pillows will ensure asthma and allergy sufferers get a good night’s rest. The full polyester stuffing resists compression and deformation over years of use. Note: the pillows are shipped in a vacuum-sealed bag—for best results, allow pillows to expand for 2-3 days before use.
