The report card for the US hotel industry, STR compiles market data for the industry. Gyms are a commodity and prevalent in mid to high-end hotels, but less so in economy hotels, which incidentally are also more likely to have ‘smoking permitted’ rooms. Spas of course are found in luxury and upscale properties, but in a sea of brands, how can a hotel brand differentiate itself? Every brand has their own answer, create a wellness brand, such as Even hotels, Westin Workout. The alternative is to buy a brand, such as Hyatt acquiring Miraval and exhale spas. Luxury hotels with spas charge a significantly higher room rate, however the relationship is tenuous – do hotels get to charge more because they have a spa, or are spas more prevalent in hotels that charge more?

To deliver the message, you must embody health and demonstrate health. To improve your habits, spend more time in the company of people who embody these habits. This works for diet, exercise, mental wellness and happiness. Governments need to support these health messages with taxes and subsidies in the right place. Mexico has seen success with its tax on sugary drinks. Fashion is powerful, how can we make wellness fashionable and fun? If we can recruit celebrities to promote a wellness lifestyle this can encourage positive change.
