GONE are the days of accepting hotel guest rooms filled with smoke, germy surfaces and stagnant air. With personalization becoming a growing trend in all aspects of travel – from bespoke experiences to custom drinks to localized rooms – it’s no surprise that consumers expect the same when it comes to health and wellness. Not only are guests seeking innovative spa treatments and fitness classes on vacation, they’re also expecting wellness to be part of the entire experience – and something they can tailor to their liking.
There is perhaps no better example of a hotel chain that has embraced wellness from top to bottom than EVEN Hotels, a new brand from InterContinental Hotel Group, including the popular EVEN Hotels New York Times Square South. All EVEN rooms feature a fitness area with a stability ball, yoga mat and block, strength bands, standing desks and fitness videos on demand, mmm…. something I should try out when I am in NYC the next time.
