Walk away your hotel bills
People staying at either the 34 Holiday Inn, the Holiday Inn Express or Crowne Plaza hotels in Spain and Portugal will get pedometers along with their keys when they check in. The hotel company has decided to encourage their guests to enjoy a healthier stay and walk 8km per day (10.000 steps) to improve their general health and wellbeing.
Why it matters
Hotels are not selling just rooms anymore but a period of time in which visitors are under their care. Could initiatives like these be linked back to prices for offering good practices whilst staying at the hotel?
London’s Goring Hotel is now offering a bath menu in partnership with product company Molton Brown. The £20.12 price point package includes essential oils and bath products, cocktails, scented candles and a “Bath Butler” to draw the bath for you.
The free service ‘travelload’ helps to organise and plan trips. Booking confirmations from flights, hotels, trains are collected and compiled into intelligent itineraries on your mobile. These are automatically updated by travel data such as flight delays and mobile check-ins.
