Conrad Hotels Good To Mommys Who Work
This just in: Women have left the home and entered the workplace. Even more, they're traveling to meetings and conferences alongside their male colleagues.
According to a recent study conducted by the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism and Sports Management at New York University, women account for nearly half of all business travelers in the U.S. and that number is on the rise. The study also reports 65 percent of female business travelers like to incorporate relaxation and leisure time into their business trips.
In response to the seemingly obvious findings, Conrad Hotels & Resorts is re-branding its luxury treatments to cater to the female business traveler. At Conrad Chicago, lady execs can treat themselves to room-service mani/pedis. Treatments include $55 manicures, $70 pedicures, and $130 facials.
Expecting working moms saving up vacation time into late-term can take advantage of the "Indulging Mothers-to-be" service at Conrad Indianapolis.
The turndown service includes a prenatal listening system to monitor the baby's heartbeat and movement, along with internet access so mom can e-mail the sounds home.
The service also includes extra pillows for elevating legs and releasing pressure from the lower back and unlimited bottled water. There's no mention of late-night pickle and ice cream service, but they'd probably accommodate.
