    Great article. I have also previously touched on the given subject as part of a blog post on LinkedIn. Both brands understand that health and fitness is close to their hotel guests as well as to a company's employees. Other great examples within the given field include The Healthy Vending Machine by Marriott and the Eat Well Programme by Starwood's WestIn brand.

    • Philipp, thank you for your interest. It is interesting to see all the ways that brands are incorporating health and wellness programs into established brands, as well as the newer brands centered around these concepts.
