Even if you follow a strict regimen at home, it’s easy to fall off track when you’ve got a wacky travel schedule and lack of healthy options at your destination. (Raise your hand if you’ve ever vowed to stick to your wellness rituals away from home, only to end up with one hand on the TV remote and the other in the in-room snack bar. Yeah—us, too.)
That’s why this new hotel brand might be the most brilliant idea ever. Every aspect—from the in-room fitness to the super healthy marketplace—is designed to help you maintain your wellness habits. Which leaves us asking: Why didn’t we think of it?!
Here are five reasons to book a room at EVEN Hotels, stat. You can find us in the Wellness Den, sipping a smoothie while we catch up on emails before our next yoga class.
1. Fitness is literally everywhere.
Not into group classes or the 1,200 square-foot gym? No problem—there’s also a “training zone” right in your room that’s equipped with personal fitness goodies like a yoga mat, exercise ball, and wall-mounted equipment. Swoon.
2. The guest rooms are ahhh-mazing (and outfitted with natural products).
In addition to the workout perks, EVEN rooms are basically private spas. Post-sweat session, hit the fully glass-enclosed rainfall shower to lather up with natural EO bath products. Then switch on the colored LED mood lighting and cozy up in natural eucalyptus fiber linens for some well-deserved zzz’s.
3. Finally, a marketplace that’s filled with healthy choices!
While there’s not a traditional hotel restaurant, there is a super healthy (and yummy) marketplace stocked with out-of-the-ordinary menu items like the Mediterranean Board (hummus, gluten-free falafel chips, and carrots)—as well as a whole menu of smoothies. (Protein boosts available, too, for post-workout sipping!) Meals can be customized to meet your dietary needs, including gluten-free and low-sugar options, and are the perfect fuel for touristing or jetting off to a meeting. Take that, midnight room-service fries.
4. Ergonomic workspaces.
Yes, even getting work done is healthier! Guest rooms have ergonomic chairs and stand-up desks, and free, high-speed Wi-Fi is throughout the hotel so you can work inside or outside as you please. Some locations (like the EVEN Hotel Times Square South in New York City) have a Wellness Den with table games and reading nooks.
5. The staff knows their stuff.
Sure, they can tell you what tourist attractions to hit nearby—but they’ll also know the best local spots for running, hiking, swimming, or taking your favorite fitness class. Which just might be the highlight of your trip.
