ATLANTA—IHG has signed two EVEN Hotels properties located at Rockville, MD, and Norwalk, CT. The properties will be conversions of existing structures, designed to the specifications of the EVEN Hotels brand in order to offer a holistic wellness experience.
Both hotels will feature public workspaces; dining and social areas; natural outdoor spaces; in-room fitness elements; a three-zone gym and flex space for small group fitness classes. The EVEN hotel in Rockville will feature 167 guestrooms and seven guestroom floors, while the Norwalk property will feature 129 guestrooms and four floors. They are expected to open in early 2014.
“Locating the hotels in Rockville and Norwalk – both affluent communities with a high wellness-minded resident and traveler base – firmly establishes our wellness-focused brand near major markets where the existing IHG family of brands already has a broad footprint,” stated Kirk Kinsell, president, the Americas, IHG.
