Even Hotels Announces Two More Healthy Hotels, Opening in 2014

August 6, 2013 at 10:12 AM | by | ()

We've been nearly starving for more info on Even Hotels, the new wellness hotel brand from InterContinental Hotel Group, and their development plans and today, we finally got a nibble.

Even has already announced two locations in New York City but those won't actually be the first Even hotels to open. Instead, Even will open in Rockville, Maryland and Norwalk, Connecticut as early as next year. (The NYC hotel will open in 2015.) Here are the specs on each property, which will be both IHG owned and operated:

Even Hotel, Rockville, Maryland
· The IHG owned hotel will be located at 1775 Rockville Pike
· The hotel will be a conversion from the Holiday Inn Express Rockville-Bethesda North
· 91,222 square feet featuring 167 guest rooms and 7 guestroom floors
· Montgomery County is at the center of D.C.’s federal and advanced technology marketplace and home headquarters of more than 60 major companies
· The hotel is conveniently located near three major airports and the Rockville Metro station

Even Hotel, Norwalk, Connecticut
· The IHG owned hotel will be located at 426 Main Avenue
· The hotel will be a conversion from a Four Points by Sheraton
· 82,981 square feet featuring 129 guest and 4 guestroom floors
· Norwalk is home to headquarters of a number of major corporations including U.S. headquarters of Virgin Atlantic, as well as Diageo North America, Pepperidge Farm and Xerox

Remember, this brand is all about maintaining a holistic and healthy lifestyle even while out on the road, so it makes sense that they open near major corporation headquarters and pick up on the fit-minded business travelers going there.

And thanks to a bunch of renderings released by IHG, we can now see more examples of their health-conscious amenities like the workout gear in the guest rooms (checkout that exercise ball and yoga mat), as well as the lobby and its "Wellcome desk" and the Even Hotels fresh market.

We're not sure our business will take us to Rockville or Norwalk next year but we may just have to make a special trip.

Some conversions seem to work well, some are just lipstick on a pig. I am not impressed.
