After reviewing and liking the Brentwood Home Sequoia mattress, I was excited to get the opportunity to check out the company’s factory and showroom in Los Angeles. There I was able to get a better understanding of the mattress line and figure out which mattresses within the line are best for certain types of sleepers.
I spent the most time testing and discussing the Coronado mattress, as it is one of the most popular mattresses that Brentwood Home makes.
While I didn’t get my standard week+ time period to test the mattress, I developed a really good feel for it and who might like it.
The Coronado starts with a quilted cover that adds extra softness and breathability. The comfort layer is 3 inches of gel memory foam, which gives the mattress great pressure relief and body contouring. Below that is 2 inches of ventilated polyfoam and then 6 inches of polyfoam as the base layer.
This mattress was made to be fairly soft, and that was my experience as well. People do sink into the mattress a decent bit. The foam isn’t quite the quicksand, slow-moving memory foam feel that Tempurpedic is known for, but it’s not too bouncy either. It has a nice balanced foam feel in my opinion.
Who Might Want To Get The Coronado…
Side Or Combo Sleepers– This mattress is definitely on the softer side. While it still can be supportive for people who sleep on their back or stomach, its best quality is its pressure relief for people who sleep on their side.
Those Who Want A Balanced Foam Feel– If someone wants the pressure relief of a foam mattress without the foam being too slow-moving or having the feeling of getting stuck, then this could be a good option for them.
People Who Sleep With A Partner– The Coronado does a very good job of isolating motion. This means people won’t be disturbed if their partner is moving around in the bed. This makes it an ideal mattress for couples.
Who Might Not Want To Get The Coronado…
Those Who Sleep Just On Their Back Or Stomach– This mattress is on the softer side, so if someone sleeps just on their back or stomach, then they might want to take a look at some firmer options.
People Who Want The Bounce Of An Innerspring/Latex Mattress– With the Coronado, the foam is fairly slow-moving and people will feel more like they are sleeping in the mattress rather than on it. If someone wants a more responsive mattress where they sleep more “on” the mattress, then an innerspring or latex mattress might be the better way to go.
The mattress does very well with motion isolation and edge support. That means people won’t be disturbed by their partner when they move around the bed (good mattress for couples). It also means sleepers can use the entire surface of the mattress without feeling like they are going to fall off. That makes the mattress great for couples.
At $995 (for a queen), consumers get a really great value with this mattress. The materials are all really great and the mattress should hold up well over the long-term.
The Coronado mattress is very well constructed and a good option for a lot of people. If someone wants a balanced foam feel and typically sleeps on their side, then this could a great choice for them.
