Has anyone purchased a Simmons Beautyrest Classic within the last three years?

I’m in the market for a new bed and am leaning towards a Simmons Beautyrest Classic Pillowtop. In stores, it feels similar to The Marriott Bed (by Jamison) and the Westin Heavenly Bed (by Simmons). I’ve had great sleeps on both and with a little research, I’m pretty sure I can avoid considerable branding and shipping costs if I purchase the bed from a local retailer under its made-up-mattress-scam-name instead of from a hotel chain.
My problem lies in what the rest of my research uncovered. The Simmons World Class model, one above the Classic, gets supremely crappy reviews all over the internet. Though it’s not the same bed I’m considering, the reviews are unnerving. There are loads of complaints about divots forming in the bed within two to three years (some showing up as early as six months of use) and there are many complaints about the company as well. Specifically, some say the quality of Simmons craftsmanship has declined over the years and the newer beds just don’t hold up.
Has anyone purchased a Simmons Beautyrest Classic within the last three years? I’ve found very few reviews on this particular model.
