Have you ever gone to the gym and seen those guys with biceps bulging like just-fed anacondas, chests broad enough to land a small plane — and legs as thin as angel hair spaghetti?
In fitness, as with everything, it’s all about the details. Miss a spot, and “sexy” becomes “silly.” Fast. Luckily, Intercontinental Hotel Group’s newly launched brand, EVEN Hotels, sweats the small stuff.
It could have coasted on its concept: A line of properties that is designed entirely around wellness, from in-room mini-gyms to an onsite restaurant, Cork & Kale, that offers healthy meals worlds apart from the calorie-loaded grub you’ll find at most lobby bars. (The cocktails even use organic spirits.)
It’s sort of shocking that no one thought to do this already, and there’s assuredly a huge market out there for a fitness-focused hotel chain. I mean, somebody’s watching “Dr. Oz.” EVEN could have phoned it in. Thankfully for us, they worked hard to get it done right.
It's been a longtime coming but EVEN Hotels, the new wellness-oriented brand from InterContinental Hotel Group, has finally opened its very first location in Norwalk, Conn.
We've spent a lot of time talking about what's inside the EVEN Hotel concept such as the in-room training zones, the Cork & Kale restaurant, the extensive fitness centers and the knowledgeable-about-exercise-staffers, but today, we're actually looking inside the EVEN Hotel concept.
Below are photos of the property from the exterior to the guest rooms (with so much exercise equipment), to the lobby and the restaurant. Have a look around, then put on your most serious judging face and score this performance in comments below.
Wanna get fit for the night at this EVEN Hotel? Rates for tomorrow start at just $108 for a wellness king room.
