I’m a big fan of Kimpton Hotels. I considered the Hotel Monaco in Chicago as my second home when work used to require me to be up that way on a regular basis. It’s not just that they’re cutely decorated and offer a free wine happy hour each evening, but it’s the yoga amenities that really made me loyal.
It looks like they’re making yoga an even bigger focus to attract business travelers by offering a yoga mat in every room. You used to have to “check out” a yoga kit at the front desk, and on really busy days, they may run out of them. How awesome that there’s one ready to go now in every room!
The travel + yoga trend is picking up. It’s not a bad time to be a yogi, is it?
Watch this video they made of a business traveler having a romantic (?) relationship with a Kimpton yoga mat.
