  • Implementing sustainable design through the use of recycled materials in the structure, in-room terrariums, air purification throughout the hotel, and guest initiatives to promote recycling.
  • Using organic cleaning products.

Adam Glickman, Head of EVEN® Hotels, The Americas, IHG said: "Wellness means different things to different people. For many, personal and environmental wellness is mutually beneficial. At EVEN Hotels, we provide our guests with many elements to their hotel experience that caters to this philosophy because we know this helps our guests feel good about the choices they make.”
