Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the opening of its first Even Hotels property - a lifestyle hotel brand.
The 129-room hotel located in Connecticut contains flexible public workspaces, dining and social areas, and a "three-zone" gym.
The concept behind the new IHG lifestyle brand is to encourage and facilitate wellbeing and is focused around four key areas — exercise, eat, work and rest.
The brand has a further four properties in the pipeline in Rockville, Maryland; Brooklyn, New York; and two hotels in midtown Manhattan.
Kirk Kinsell, IHG's president of the Americas, said: "[This] is truly a milestone for IHG as we announce the opening of our first Even Hotels property in Norwalk and prepare to open our second in Rockville, Maryland later this month.
"We know that for the travelling public, the ability to maintain their health routine while on the road is becoming more and more important and Even Hotels provides the tools and encouragement to make healthier choices while on the road at an approachable price point."
He added: "Through a carefully designed hotel and service culture, created with the needs of our target guest at the core, we know Even Hotels can deliver a better experience to travellers for whom wellness is so important."
