What makes hotel towels so good? For starters, it's laundry you didn't do or have to fold. But, like sheets, there's something incredibly luxurious about fancy hotel towels. Turns out, some designer hotels love the same linen brands we do, and you can snag the exact same towels, bath mats and even robes that boutique hotels use. Even better: They're more affordable than you think! Some items are under $40 on Amazon. Yes, really. We're unraveling the mystery of hotel bath linens. Read on to learn what materials and designs to look for, plus where to shop to recreate your favorite hotel bathroom at home.

Where to Shop for Sheets if You Want to Recreate Your Favorite Hotel Bed

Many designer boutique hotels use the same exact sheets you already know and love.

Hotels Love Turkish Cotton Bath Linens

Ever noticed how soft and buttery hotel towels feel? It's by design. The secret is Turkish cotton. Hoteliers love Turkish cotton because it's super dense, fluffy and incredibly durable. These towels actually get softer over time with every wash and without breaking down in fluffiness, and you can snag the same towel magic at home. Boutique hotels across the country, from the Vandyke Bed & Beverage in Nashville to the Gather Greene resort in Upstate New York, use Brooklinen's Super-Plush towels made from 100-percent Turkish cotton. We're already big fans of these towels and recommend them in our towel shopping guide!

But Turkish cotton doesn't always mean super-plush. Hotels, from the Cuyama Buckhorn in New Cuyama, California to the Gateway Lodge in Cook Forest, Pennsylvania, love Brooklinen's classic towels, too. They're made from the same ultra-soft Turkish cotton, but they're not as heavy as the thicker super-plush version. However, Cuyama Buckhorn does stock each room with Brooklinen's super-plush Turkish cotton robes. Yep, the exact same robes you can buy from Brooklinen's website. Chart House Inn in Newport, Rhode Island uses the super-plush robes, too.

While terry (short little loops) is the most common, Turkish cotton can be used in other towel styles, too, such as ribbed or waffle. The new Heights House Hotel in Raleigh, North Carolina uses the Brooklinen Turkish cotton waffle robe for a spa-style experience.

Another hotel favorite and leader in Turkish cotton bath linens is The Turkish Towel Co. Maison de la Luz, a boutique hotel in New Orleans, already caught our eye for its authentic French-style architecture and interior design, and if you visit, you'll find organic Turkish Towel Co. towels and bath mats in the luxurious bathrooms. (And as for robes, they use this waffle-style robe, which can you order on Amazon for under $40.)

Hotels Love an Embroidered Edge, Too

Like with fancy hotel sheets, an embroidered edge is a subtle detail that adds a whole lot of luxury, and many hoteliers use towels with embroidered edges, too. Deer Path Inn outside of Chicago uses luxury linen brand Frette towels (which are also used by the new Disney Wish cruise ship), especially Frette towels with an embroidered line. It's white on white, but the addition of these lines elevates the whole towel, and the towels need to be chic in the hotel's gorgeous, spa-style bathrooms. Deer Path also uses Frette robes, but these babies are not cheap at a whopping $400+. However, you can snag the towels for $80.
