Even Eugene… Travel Wellness on your terms
Travel wellness at a chain hotel? Yes, indeed. The Even Eugene opened January 2018. It’s the first of its kind on the west coast and there are only seven others in the world. Based on guest feedback the Even chain was created to focus on wellness travel.
Eugene welcomes this unique, quirky, casual, retro-meets-modern minimalist property. Its “wellness on my terms” orientation fits perfectly into the local culture and attitude.
The 100 guestrooms are roomy and each includes its own fitness area. Even rooms are designed to meet goals of wellness-oriented travelers. People who don’t want their fitness-oriented lifestyle derailed when on the road.
Enter on the ground level, and just past the conference rooms… you’re
greeted with a floor-to-ceiling living wall. You can’t help but touch it to assure those plants are real. Light, clean, minimalist, sort of Scandinavian in feel.
Take the elevator to the 2nd floor and you find a spacious lobby/reception area. The check-in desk is also minimal. More of a kiosk than a traditional imposing counter.
And then you notice the quirky sayings stenciled on the walls. “Don’t think of them as stairs…they’re little hurdles.” “Stay hydrated… stay well.” And leading to the patio…”Come on out… the nature’s fine.” You’ll find them throughout the hotel including your room.
This place does not take itself too seriously and will make you smile with its humor. Certainly not your traditional, stuffy, boring business hotel. Even the staff’s business cards have non-traditional titles. You’ll meet the “Chief Wellness Officer” and “Accomplish More Manager.”
Open, welcoming & you’re in charge of travel wellness choices
The floor plan is very open and flowing. You move from reception to the
24/7 grab and go food and beverage area. Chose healthy or decadent. Or drift on into the restaurant, bar and computer area. Convenient power and internet access invite work, conferencing or just relaxing. Big screen televisions offer diversion, but quietly enough not to be distracting.
The commitment to wellness extends to the multi-zone 1000 square-foot workout studio. Don’t be
surprised to see staff working out with you. Wellness and fitness are encouraged. The general manager leads weekly workouts. His assistant takes guests on runs through Alton-Baker Park’s extensive paths.
There are plenty of outdoor activities to keep the most serious fitness fiend busy. But this is wellness your way. You can choose a fresh smoothie, healthy frittata… or go for an egg and Canadian bacon sandwich.
Wind down with a healthy version of cobb or go for an all-natural burger or
flatbread pizza. Enjoy freshly squeezed oranges and organic coffee or full-service bar.
Every guest is provided with their own water bottle. Refill as often as you
like at the Hydration Station in the reception area.
Comfy is key… work or workout
Rooms are surprisingly large. They boast upgraded bedding featuring
Simons Beauty Rest mattresses and deluxe eucalyptus linens.
Relax in mood lighting and enjoy spa-inspired showers complete with amenities.
Each room also features both a sitting and standing desk. The 42” HD TV have 18 fitness videos for an in-room workout. You can also access your own secure
