InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened its flagship EVEN hotel in Brooklyn.
The 202-room hotel is located at 46 Nevins Street in Downtown Brooklyn, and is the fourth property from this new wellness-oriented hotel brand from IHG.
“We’re thrilled to bring the newest EVEN Hotels property to New York City’s dynamic borough of Brooklyn,” says Jason Moskal, vice president, lifestyle brands, The Americas, IHG.
“The huge success behind the opening of our first NYC hotel in November 2015 demonstrated the high-demand for wellness focused travel experiences; and as the only holistic wellness brand in the hotel industry, we are continually dedicated to helping guests find their balance wherever the wellness-minded traveler both lives and travels to.”
As soon as guests arrive at EVEN Hotels Brooklyn, natural elements of wood and living plants create a welcoming and revitalising space. The hotel offers different design and technology elements to help guests maintain the balance they desire.
The Cork & Kale Market and Bar offers a menu of freshly prepared food items such as a yogurt bowl with house made granola, a customisable signature black kale salad, flatbreads, all-natural burger and indulgent desserts.
For guests desiring a great workout, the property features a natural light filled two-level athletic studio which also includes a two-story living green wall. Spin and yoga classes are offered in addition to group runs to the Brooklyn Bridge Park led by the property’s Chief Wellness Officer. The 2.2 mile loop can easily be modified to a 5k or 10k course for runners or walkers looking to increase their distance.
For those who prefer to work out on their own, guestrooms feature an In-Room Training Zone which includes a foam roller, yoga mat, yoga block, core exercise ball and the EVEN Hotels Trainer, a mounted fitness wall which includes resistance bands.
The brand also developed 17 fitness videos, with an additional two created exclusively for the Brooklyn property by celebrity trainer David Kirsch, and a robust in-room training guide which shows guests different ways to use the equipment.
The hotel places key emphasis on creating a restful environment, and has created a calming, open design throughout EVEN Hotels in order to create a relaxing feel. Guest rooms offer a modern yet comfortable environment and feature eucalyptus fiber linens that offer a cooler sleep; fully glass-enclosed rainfall showers; naturally derived bath products exclusively available from EO and color LED mood lighting.
Ergonomically-designed movable work spaces at the property are configured to integrate with guests’ preferences, ensuring they can complete work comfortably and efficiently. Guestrooms feature both moveable desks and stand-up desk options.
Places to sit back, relax and catch up on the day include the hotel’s outdoor garden. Best described as an urban chic oasis, the garden features exposed brick walls, ample comfortable seating, an abundance of greenery, great lighting in the evening and great sun exposure during the day, giving guests space to relax and rejuvenate whenever they like. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout the hotel.
