    Last October, the Marriott brand launched the STAY WELL room in their properties.

    For an additional fee, a hotel guest can choose Stay Well® rooms and receive better rest, more energy and reduced stress, to help you recover from jet lag quicker. By choosing the allergy friendly hotel, the guest also receive access to wellness content on sleep, stress and proper nutrition. Why should this cost more?

    I, for one, still think this is bizarre. When we stay in a hotel with a good reputation, the minimum we should expect is a room that is good for our health and all the perks of a Stay Well room – better rest, more energy and reduced stress so I can recover from jet lag quicker.

    Having a “Stay Well” room does not mean a hotel is sustainable. It’s time we ask tougher questions before we book (View Issue 4 THE HOTEL ISSUE – The List article on 10 TOUGH ‘BEST FOR PEOPLE & PLANET’ QUESTIONS TO ASK A HOTEL BEFORE BOOKING).

    Plus I would question ‘WHY SHOULD I PAY MORE FOR A HOTEL ROOM THAT IS GOOD FOR MY HEALTH?’ How about you?

    It’s so crazy and frustrating that they even get away with this but unfortunately, I guess its good marketing to a demographic of uneducated people. Surely it should make people question about the quality/ethos of the other rooms?
