How Hotel Brands Key On Traveler Wellbeing
Business Traveler|September 2019
These global hotel brands are keying on the health and wellbeing of business travelers
Hannah Brandler

Life on the road can lead to an unhealthy lifestyle. Awareness of this has meant that staying fit and well has become a priority for many business travelers. To meet this healthy demand, hotels have launched a range of amenities and services, from in-room fitness to nutrition-focused meal plans and ergonomic workstations. Here, we round up some of the ones to watch.

HILTON HOTELS AND RESORTS

Hilton’s Five Feet to Fitness concept is “part traditional hotel room, part miniature fitness center.” It incorporates 11 different equipment and accessory options into the hotel room while a touch screen display providing over 200 bespoke exercise tutorials will guide guests through workout routines.

To ensure other guests aren’t disturbed, the room’s “sports performance floor” has been designed to provide a protective surface for guests, with an additional layer of soundproofing. The rooms also have a meditation chair, blackout shades for sleep, bio freeze gel packs to relieve muscle tension, and a selection of hydrating beverages – free of charge. The rooms are only available in a few hotels in North America.

EVEN HOTELS

IHG’s US-based Even brand can be found in New York, Seattle, and Miami. It has a “where wellness is built-in” tagline, so rooms are fitted with gym equipment, fitness videos, and ergonomic workstations (standing desks), while beds have eucalyptus linen for a cooler sleep. Staff can provide running routes and walking trails, while its food and beverage platform “Cork and Kale Market and Bar” focuses on healthy eating.
