Westin® Hotels to Lend Fitness Gear to Guests
Travelers, take note: if you forget to pack your workout clothes, Westin Hotels & Resorts have got you covered. The high-end hotel chain now offers a fitness gear lending program, according to an article published in the December 14 issue of The Wall Street Journal. Fitness-minded hotel guests may borrow New Balance–brand shoes, as well as apparel such as socks, shorts and shirts, at no cost. Apparel sizes range from small to extra large for women, medium to extra large for men. Shoes sizes are 6–101/2 for women, 81/2–13 for men. After each use, borrowed items are thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any risk of spreading germs. Each pair of shoes is equipped with disposable insoles, which are discarded upon return.
