Healthier hotel rooms.
Besides the Stress-Less Rooms, Hilton has also created the Health Fit Room as part of its "Traveler Lifestyle Centers." Health Fit Rooms come complete with an exercise bike, resistance exercise tubing, a list of jogging trails, healthy foods menu, yoga video and fitness magazines. Its Sleep-Tight Rooms have special lighting, a sleep kit with a face mask and ear plugs, a biorhythm lightbox, soundproof windows and other things to help lull guests to sleep.
Other hotels are quick to offer extra amenities and special accommodations at a premium price and upon request. However, Hilton's specialized rooms are priced at the same rate as a standard room. According to hotel spokesperson Jeanne Datz, these rooms have been debuted in eight Hilton Hotels, including ones in San Francisco, New York and Chicago. The chain expects to add more before year's end.
