I mean, Super 8 has a gift shop, but mattresses?

Oh sure, anyone can sell a Disney duffle, but who knew you could have the Marriott sleeping experience at home? This isn’t some towel you “forgot” about that ended up in your suitcase, I mean brand new box springs and such. Oh, you didn’t think it was going to be cheap, did you? Normally, a brand extension like this is cool. But see the screengrab. Your chart legend: Yellow = wtf? If I’m spending close to $800 alone for a twin bed, the housekeeping better come with it to help me fluff the pillow. And I’m not waiting 6-8 weeks for it either—it better be here day after next. And $125 for a frame?
