I’ll start by saying that I’m a little weird about linens: I really notice and care about the look and feel of sheets and towels. What am I talking about? Well, soft, fluffy towels make me very happy; scratchy, threadbare towels make me slightly depressed. For me, smooth, cool, crisp sheets are a big contributing factor to a good night’s sleep.
Quality linens are kind of important to me. Okay, they’re really important.
Is that strange? I don’t know. But I do know that next time I travel, I’m packing my own pillowcase.
The bed at the Hyatt Center City Charlotte looked inviting enough:
In fact, its appearance lulled me into complacency. But by the time I woke up the next morning, I was a hot, sweaty mess after a night of tossing and turning. The reason? Take a look:
That’s right: the sheets were 35% polyester. For me, that is a guaranteed sleepless night.
Oh Hyatt, I feel slightly disappointed in you. I know that not everyone has the same level of sensitivity to synthetic fabrics as I do, but this polyester percentage seems high.
Does anyone else have this problem? If you don’t have this “interesting” issue, I know it’s gotta be something else…what is it? What’s your “weird sleep thing?”
