The Jamison mattress is not as well known as other big-name brands, but they have been around a very long time — 125 years, in fact. They began manufacturing mattresses in 1883, and perhaps the biggest surprise is, ownership has stayed in the family and continues in the present. This is unusual in an era when buyouts mainly by private equity firms, are the norm. Nearly every big name mattress brand in the U.S. is no longer owned by the original entity, and some have been bought and sold numerous times.
Jamison is most famous for its Marriott beds. People who wake up in a Marriott hotel room feeling like a million bucks, having just had the best night’s sleep of their life in recent memory, often are inspired to purchase the same bed for home use. The only way to get the exact replica is to buy a Jamison bed, because they are the exclusive suppliers of those thick and luxuriously comfy foam mattresses to the hotel chain. Because of the excellent word-of-mouth exposure through their hotel partners, Jamison does not advertise to the general public.
