Five-star hotels are no longer just courting CEOs and yogis wanting five-star amenities with their retreats.
Their newest target clients? Marathon runners.
The Four Seasons package includes a basic room, a “pre-race snack of energy bars, fruit, and Gatorade,” and a “special welcome amenity.” (Is it deodorant?)
After the race, runners get half-off the brunch at Edge Steak and Bar, the hotel’s “contemporary” steakhouse. Umm…okay, a juicy cut of steak is not exactly the most recommended post-race recovery meal. Might we recommend half-off a Sports Massage at the spa. And then another one?
But why shouldn’t runners flop down on a feather-topped bed at the Four Seasons for a few days and float in the pool till they can feel their legs again? We could totally see this kindly form of convalescence catching on.
