There's nothing worse than arriving to a hotel and realizing you forgot something. Most of the time, whatever you forgot is easily replaceable--a toothbrush, contact lens solution, deodorant--but if you forget your running shoes or your workout pants, it's not like you can just call down to the front desk and ask them to send up a pair Wait, actually now you can, thanks to Trump Hotels.
The luxury brand rolled out their new Trump Wellness program last month at all their hotels from New York to Las Vegas to Waikiki. Two parts of the program deal with healthy meal options but the third part, Travel Fit, helps guests keep on with their workout routines by providing fitness gear to use in their rooms as well as workout clothes from UnderArmour.
We got to check out the Travel Fit kits the other day at the flagship Trump hotel in New York--The Trump International Hotel, just steps from one of the Big Apple's biggest "gyms"--Central Park.
The other week we got excited when we heard that starchitect Rem Koolhaas designed a hotel for the Miami Beach Convention Center, which is due for a major renovation. Yet it looks like a competing development plan called Miami Beach Square from Portman CMC may actually win the project. Don't worry, they have a hotel component too.
Portman hired architect Bjarke Ingels to design their development and the convention center hotel will be "nothing short of spectacular." So what's inside? For starters, a pool deck on the 6th floor and a hotel restaurant. Hmm, that sounds pretty standard for Miami, right? But Portman has upped the ante by reaching out to Delos to incorporate their wellness amenities into the hotel rooms. We stayed in one of the Delos Wellness rooms at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and they are really spectacular.
Yet while the MGM Grand has only a handful of wellness rooms available to book, the Portman hotel plan would make the entire hotel a "wellness hotel." A convention center hotel that actually makes you feel better upon check-out? That might be the first of its kind!
On Friday we showed off the amenity we wish all showers in Las Vegas had--a vitamin C-infused shower head found in the new Stay Well rooms at MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Today, we'll look at other wellness technology in the room that made this one of our most relaxing Las Vegas stays yet.
For starters, the room's wellness layout was designed by Delos, a "wellness real estate" company with Dr. Deepak Chopra at the helm that combines science, design and technology to maximize health and wellbeing in the spaces where we spend so much time--homes and workspaces. And in our case, hotel rooms.
Walking inside, the first thing we noticed was a large white air purifier attached to the wall. This contraption is the most advanced HEPA-standard air purification system out there, reducing allergens, toxins, pathogens and presumably any of that crappy casino air we'd tracked in.
The next thing we saw was a white conical object on the nightstand. What the heck, now?
Well, read on to find out what it was!
