The Gear Lending Program is Westin Hotels & Resorts latest game changing service.

Healthy hotels

You may have heard of room service, but this in-room idea from Westin Hotels & Resorts has a slight twist. With the goal of wanting guests to leave feeling better than when they arrived, it has developed a ‘Gear Lending’ Program.

Introduced in partnership with New Balance late last year, the initiative allows guests to borrow exercise gear and a pair of running shoes, guaranteed fresh and clean, as well as some new socks for them to keep.

Aside from running-off your room service, the idea behind this game changing service is that guest are able to maintain their fitness regime while travelling, without having to pack their bulky gear.

Awarded the 'Best In-Room Idea' by Gourmet Traveller at its inaugural 2014 Australian Hotel Guide Readers’ Choice Awards, the Gear Lending Program is now available to guests across all Westin hotels worldwide for just $5 per stay.
