The Beckham Hotel Collection Gel Pillow, which features in our guide to the best pillows (opens in new tab), feels like a hotel-standard down pillow but costs far less. The gel fiber filling is a down alternative, so it feels and supports like a down, but it's hypoallergenic and much cooler too. Plus, it comes in a two-pack for a decent price, so it’s also an overall good value pillow.

Beckham Hotel Collection Gel Pillow review: Design
The Beckham pillows are comfortable, filled well enough to give good support, yet soft enough to be punched and molded into a shape that’s just right for you. Our back sleepers especially liked these pillows because they’re a good thickness with comfortable in-bed support, which helped them sleep better.
One of our back sleepers uses a CPAP machine at night and reported that the Beckham Hotel Collection Gel Pillow does a good job of supporting their neck and upper body, and doesn’t interfere with the CPAP machine, positions or sleep patterns at all.
Beckham Hotel Collection Gel Pillow review: Performance
We tested the standard size pillows, but the Beckham Hotel Gel Pillows also come in queen and king sizes. All of them cost under $50 for a two-pack (so two pillows per pack) and are best sellers on Amazon. There isn’t a warranty that comes with these pillows, but you do have 30 days to try them out or return them if you don't get on with them.
These hypoallergenic pillows are filled with a down alternative that gives soft and comfortable support. We don’t recommend the Beckham Hotel Collection Gel Pillow for stomach sleepers, and some side sleepers felt the pillows didn’t conform well enough to the shape of their necks either.
This is a good pillow if you tend to overheat during sleep, and we would partner it with the best cooling mattress (opens in new tab) to disperse heat throughout your entire bed.
Beckham Hotel Collection Gel Pillow review: Verdict
Our side sleepers gave this pillow mixed reviews. Some liked the down-esque support, feel and comfort, but others felt this pillow didn’t conform well enough to their neck to provide ample cradling.
Our stomach sleepers said the Beckham pillows were too full for them, to the point where they felt like they were suffocating a little because of how much their head fell into the pillow. They preferred the Isotonic Indulgence pillow.
While you don’t get a warranty with the Beckham pillow, though you do have 30 days to return it if you decide to try it for yourself. We'd recommend it if you want an affordable pack of pillows that delivers a luxurious, hotel-worthy pillow for the home.
