Q - Which Mattress Topper is used at the Darling Hotels and at the Star Hotels?

A - The Cloud Gen II Mattress Topper by HotelHome is used at all Star Properties including The Darling Sydney, The Darling Gold Coast, The Star Sydney, The Star Gold Coast and the Treasury Brisbane.

The Cloud, Australia’s No 1 mattress topper also needs the best Waterproof Mattress Protector and the hotel management of Star asked HotelHome to produce a high-quality PU protector that must be super soft and quiet to sleep on and could not be detected on the top of The Cloud and it could be safely laundered at commercial temperatures. HotelHome then developed the “Hot Wash”, the discreet premium Waterproof Protector with a soft Cotton/Bamboo cover that outperforms any commercial bed protector in this country and is available in all sizes.


Mr. John Autelitano, newly appointed General Manager of Hotels at the Star and Darling Gold Coast, is the man who was instrumental in The Darling at The Star Sydney, receiving its Forbes Five-Star rating. He is also the same person behind HotelHome creating the super soft Cotton Bamboo Hot Wash Waterproof Mattress Protector now used in Australia’s best Hotels. Mr. Autelitano demanded the absolute best in guest sleeping experiences, right down to the softest and quietest commercial mattress protector. The Hot Wash protector was designed and then produced to enhance the higher comfort standard and also to add complete protection to “The Cloud” Feather Down Mattress Topper.

Guests at both The Star and The Darling Gold Coast can look forward to experiencing the very best in Hotel bedding, which includes sleeping on “The Cloud” Feather Down Mattress Topper by HotelHome.
