Why memory foam pillows for my Airbnb?

Memory foam pillows last longer and look better. All pillows go flat over time but memory foam (especially when latex is in included) will take longer to do so. Which means fewer replacements for you to buy.  Also, memory foam pillows bounce back to their original full plump look which means your pillows will always look perfect for guests and inviting in listing pics. 

Why should I use queen size pillows for my Airbnb?
Queen is the perfect balance of price, comfort, and flexibility. A queen size pillow is roughly 20 x 30 inches, a standard pillow is only 2 inches smaller, but a king size pillow jumps up 6 inches larger. So a queen size pillow will fit almost any pillowcase but a king will only fit a king sized pillowcase. So if you have only queen size pillows on all your beds it's not a big deal if they get mixed up. Making your hosting life a little easier. 

Also, king sized bedding costs more money. If you have a high-end Airbnb it makes sense to spring for the extra expense, but for most rentals, the cost-effective queen size is the way to go. Now if you go smaller than a queen guest will feel uncomfortable, and they won't know why. Most people are used to the feel of a queen pillow, even two inches smaller and it just doesn't feel right. Queen size keeps guests comfortable, puts more money in your pocket, and works with any size bed.

Why should I NOT spend allot on pillows for my Airbnb?
Because it's not worth it.  You want quality pillows that stay plump so guests are happy, but after a certain point guests are not going to notice the difference between a 25 dollar pillow and a 75 dollar pillow. Those subtle differences are only noticed when someone sleeps on the same pillow for weeks at a time (which is not your guests). Plus it will save you money when you have to buy replacements. Pillows wear out, wine gets spilled on them, or they go missing so having a reliable source of affordable pillows is going to save you time and money.
