A Healthier Hotel? It's More Than Adding a Gym
By Christina Cheddar Berk, News Editor
NEW YORK ( CNBC) -- As road warriors know all too well, it can be really tough to stick to your routine when traveling.
A hotel gym can often be a small, cramped room, tucked in the corner of a hotel and filled with equipment that may not work. Or travelers may find themselves with few healthy food choices if their itineraries require late-night check-ins or their meetings run late.
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) , the parent of the Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza hotels, recently announced a plan to address this dilemma with EVEN Hotels, a new brand of hotels that will serve the needs of travelers who place a priority on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.If the idea of a health-and-wellness hotel brand seems odd, think again. A wider array of products and services are marketing themselves with the halo of health and wellness, and it's been interesting to see where the concept is spreading.
