Guests sleeping sound at Sofitel Adelaide thanks to Sealy

This was a really drawn-out negotiation which took over 6 weeks to negotiate [and] after lots of back and forth, we lastly arrived.

You have actually simply finished providing luxury beds to Sofitel Adelaide. Tell us about how smooth the ordering process was for Sealy and the discussions with Accor on what the hotel was looking for?

How was the production and delivery and installation procedure for Sealy?

Setup was over a 6 week period throughout the months of August and September. When the hotel required them, we had actually begun production of these pieces much earlier to make sure we had them all set. Setup was delayed a couple of times due to hold-ups in building and construction.

We had started production of these pieces much earlier to make sure we had them ready when the hotel required them. It was a leather look material in Charcoal Grey. The fabric was totally checked by our Research and Development group in Brisbane to ensure it fulfilled all our standards for strength and toughness.

We needed to source this outside our normal material supplier. It was a leather appearance fabric in Charcoal Grey. The fabric was fully checked by our Research and Development group in Brisbane to ensure it met all our requirements for strength and toughness.

Produced out of Sealys SA bedding plant, Sofitel was provided the My Sofitel bed mattress developed to Accor specifications. We also supplied them a base in a material to match the trim around the headboards in the rooms.
