The transformation of the former Legacy Hotel into an EVEN Hotel continues on Rockville Pike. EVEN Hotels is a wellness-themed brand within the IHG hospitality group, which also includes Holiday Inn. The hotel is designed to not only make healthy travel accommodations available, but also accessible and easy to take advantage of.

In the hotel room renderings by IHG below, you can see that exercise equipment is not just in the expected fitness center of the hotel, but also right in the room. I've seen this trend myself in some Hilton hotels, for example, where there was a treadmill right in the room. On-site food and beverages will also fit the wellness theme, quite a change from the decadent carrot cake I had in the old Phillips Restaurant in the Legacy Hotel.

You may notice some of the Legacy Hotel's windows are being bricked up; as you can see in the IHG rendering below, that brown rectangle is where those windows are being eliminated as part of the redesign.

That exercise ball just won't stop
giving you the guilt trip, will it?
