Trump Hotel Collection is the latest hotel chain to join the health and wellness movement, launching services that offer low-calorie menus and fitness programs that allow guests to work out in their room.


Debuting on Monday, the “Trump Wellness” program rolled out across the brand’s luxury properties in the US, Canada and Panama in partnership with Technogym and sports apparel brand Under Armour, which will provide footwear and workout gear for guests.

Pre-loaded iPod shuffles are also available.

Guests who prefer to work out from the comfort of their hotel room can also call upon the concierge to bring up yoga mats, stretch bands, and light weights, while those who want to hit the pavement are offered maps of local running paths mapped by each Trump Hotel Collection property.

The dietary component of the wellness program includes a range of gluten-free, vegan, and organic meals with nutritional information, as well as a Quick Bites menu that offers meals to go in 15 minutes or less. Minibars have also been made over to include healthier snacks.

Where possible, select properties will also be sourcing vegetables, herbs and other ingredients through local farmers and artisanal producers.

Trump Hotel Collection joins a string of other hotel chains that have caught on to the demand for healthy travel, particularly among the business set who are regularly on the road and want to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Westin Hotels and Resorts, for instance, will loan guests a pair of New Balance sneakers and workout clothes, and even a ‘running buddy’ who will accompany guests on their run in a foreign city.

The MGM Grand in Las Vegas also offers “Stay Well” rooms that include spa menus, wake-up light therapy, air purification and aromatherapy, vitamin C-infused showers and wellness videos from Deepak Chopra.

And Fairmont Hotels & Resorts offers a “Fairmont Fit” program that includes fitness gear, mp3 players, bikes on loan and running clubs.
