Great Ideas from The Westin, Savannah

Look around at other businesses and partners to see if there’s a great idea you can implement.


I’m looking forward to sharing an innovative and education-filled NATSO Show, Feb 2 – 6, 2013 at The Westin in Savannah, GA.

During a recent planning trip with Amy Toner, we discovered several new and innovative programs implemented by Starwood. In the spirit of the “Be Well” motto promoted by Starwood, they are walking the talk with their new “Gear Lending Program.” Starwood hotels will provide New Balance clothes and shoes for guests that would like to exercise and may have forgotten their work out clothes. No more excuses — everything is available and provided, for a small fee.

Starwood properties also serve a long list of super foods to help you stay healthy. Many super foods are prepared throughout their daily menus. Starwood meetings will assist event planners with fun runs, group yoga classes, bicycle tours and any customized exercise team program you can imagine.

Starwood recently introduced GPS – Global Personalization Service. Any Starwood Guest that registers as a Starwood member can list their personal requests and preferences and find those needs met at any Starwood hotel around the world. Starwood truly promotes the healthy “on the road” lifestyle and goes beyond the average customer service to stand out in the crowd.

Look around at other businesses and partners to see if there’s a great idea you can implement. Great ideas are everywhere! Be well -
