Westin hotels are now offering New Balance (which I love) workout clothes and shoes on lend at participating hotels. This is a very interesting concept. Apparently, you can request clothes and shoes in your size and borrow them for your stay. This way, ideally you save room in your carry on bag because you don’t have to pack workout clothes. Usually when I travel, my workout clothes are the last thing to make it into my bag if I am tight on space, so this may be a great solution for me! Here are the details:
We know that while you strive to maintain a daily exercise routine, it can often be difficult while traveling. Strict carry-on requirements make it harder to pack shoes and apparel creating additional challenges.
Westin has recently partnered with New Balance to provide athletic shoes and apparel during your stay, for a nominal $5 fee. Simply dial Service Express® and request your shoe and clothing size and they will be conveniently delivered to your guest room. Shoes come with socks that are brand new and apparel is provided fresh and clean. Upon departure, simply leave the items in your room in their mesh bag.
I can appreciate the idea as I am an especially light traveller but, I am not sure about using the “lend pair of shoes.” Any thoughts on this, or have you tried the new program? Let me know if you would consider using Westin’s workout gear.
Consider using your Starwood Amex Card for reservations at Westin and put your lended New Balance gear on your card too to maximize points.
