We’ve all been to hotels with the “save water” cards that ask you to reuse your towels by hanging up and we feel good about doing something for the planet. Well, the Marriott Hawaii takes one step further, for the sake of providing our guests with a more beneficial and green island experience.
The JW Marriott Ihilani Resot & Spa is the first in Hawaii and one of the first in America to use the PURE system, whereby guests on the 17th floor and the Presidential Suite can receive an ultimate allergy-friendly room environment. The PURE system treats the room to remove contaminants from bedding, carpeting, walls, furniture, air conditioning systems, and practically everything in the room, which are particularly annoying for room guests.
A study from the Cornell University found that one third of travelers had allergy problems and 83% of the travellers said they would prefer to stay in pure and clean rooms if they had the chance and 81% of people who did not have allergies said they, too, would prefer an allergy-free room. When the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa converts its 35,000-square-foot Ihilani Spa, it will become the first and only spa facility in the U.S. to be entirely allergy-friendly.
The five Marriott Resort hotels in Hawaii all aim to be not just allergy-free, but also energy efficient, protective of native wildlife and responsible in their water use.
