San Francisco Marriott Marquis and San Jose Marriott have introduced “Meet Well,” a new team-building initiative that gives groups a healthier option. The initiative will include healthy banquet and coffee break menus, active meeting options, wellness topics and speakers, body-friendly seat spacing, meeting planning perks and volunteer options.

“Anticipating guests’ needs is our business,” says Chuck Pacioni, general manager, San Francisco Marriott Marquis. “Approximately 36 percent of people polled by Nielson report being fit and healthy as their top resolution for the new year. Meet Well is a natural fit for our hotels, our destinations and our guests.”

At San Francisco Marriott Marquis, a new fitness center and spa has opened. The space offers top-of-the-line fitness equipment, and customized spa treatments. Guests may also enjoy sandwiches, salads, pastas, healthy bars and sweets, and other goods at Pete’s Coffee, located in the hotel’s Mission Street Pantry.

Health and fitness is also important to San Jose Marriott Streams, where they greet their guests with spa water and continually provide a relaxing, rejuvenating experience. Guests may partake in the outdoor pool, fitness center or bike rental program, which allow guests to stay active and experience the San Jose area. The hotel also launched the “Over-The-Top” app, allowing guests to stream fitness videos in the privacy of their own rooms.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
