Guests look out for in-room exercise equipment and paraben-free soaps
Healthy additional amenities are bringing hotels more loyalty in their customers. Among the hotel health trends to watch for, more than 20% of luxury hotels, 17% of upscale and 15% of mid-price properties now offer in-room exercise equipment in the US. Chains such as Hilton Garden Inn and Omni Hotels Resorts provide “stay fit kits”. Other chains are introducing concierge service smartphone apps with palm-size route cards for joggers. Staff nutritionists, dieticians and wellness coaches are often on hand for classes and individual sessions. And hotels are increasingly offering allergy-free rooms, paraben-free shampoos and soaps, and organic, locally produced foods.
