Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
PURE Solutions, the innovative provider of hypoallergenic hotel rooms, has now expanded its allergy-friendly hotel offerings to include on-site meeting centers. Designed to address the health needs of workers traveling for business, these cutting-edge “Meet and Sleep” hotels may also improve workforce productivity and performance.
A recent National Health Interview Study found allergic rhinitis (congestion caused by swelling of the nasal cavity) to be the most commonly reported medical condition to US employers. Each year, allergies are responsible for an average of 3.6 missed days of work per employee and 2.3 unproductive hours per employee per day.
Extending PURE technology to hotel conference centers may present a way to combat these numbers by creating a stay-and-work space that is virtually free of surface and airborne irritants. Using a patented, 7-step technology to eliminate 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, PURE meeting facilities provide the same hypoallergenic environment guests have come to enjoy in a PURE hotel room.
“Our rooms have always been popular with business travelers and the Meet and Sleep concept is an extension of that,” said Brian Brault, CEO of PURE Solutions. “When you’re away from home for a conference or business meeting, the last thing you want to worry about are allergy symptoms or getting a good night’s sleep.”
Tom Kammerer, from Thayer Lodging Group, believes hypoallergenic meeting space will be attractive not only to allergic businesspeople, but also those seeking the best facilities for meeting with clients, partners and out-of-town employees.
“The advantage of a Meet and Sleep hotel is that it allows travelers to conduct business under the highest quality conditions,” he said. “Our business guests can move from their rooms to meetings and back again, all in an environment that promotes their health and wellbeing.”
Three properties owned by Thayer —the Sheraton Miami Airport and Doubletree Palm Beach Gardens in Florida and the Hyatt Dulles in Virginia—currently offer both PURE hotel rooms and meeting space to their guests. As awareness about the impact of allergies on workplace productivity expands, PURE anticipates that more hotels will look to include allergy-friendly conference and meeting spaces within their hotels.
