On Tuesday February 28th, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans the first person fell back on their mattress, toppling onto the next. The result: 850 people dropping, one-by-one, until the final mattress landed, shattering the current world record. A Guinness adjudicator was on-site to verify the attempt’s success and present the World Record certificate.
La Quinta Inns & Suites and Simmons Bedding Company will donate the 850 wrapped mattresses used in the record attempt to the Mayor’s Homeless Initiatives and various charities at the conclusion of the event.
850 La Quinta GMs, owners, employees, executives and guests manned one mattress for each La Quinta hotel in the country.
