Demand has been growing in recent years for health-conscious and environmentally friendly hotels.  Many are “going green” by using renewable energy, serving locally sourced foods and finding creative ways to reuse and recycle.  They are decreasing their use of harsh chemicals and heavily scented cleaning products.  The goal is to create an environment that is focused on the health and well-being of guests as well as the planet.

Allergy-friendly rooms are a part of this growing trend.  These rooms use state-of-the-art air purifiers, mattress and pillow encasings and special cleaning techniques to remove harmful irritants such as germs and airborne mold and protect guests from other allergens like dust mites. This creates an environment that helps people with allergies and asthma enjoy a restful and rejuvenating night’s sleep away from home.

Consider that you will likely spend 8-10 hours in your hotel room, even during a busy trip.  Your allergies may be well controlled at home but travel can expose you to new environmental conditions that could set off symptoms. A relaxing room where you can breathe clean air can go a long way toward making you healthier on your travels.

For business travelers, a good night’s sleep can mean the difference between a great meeting or presentation and an average one.  For families and vacationers, it means more fun exploring new places. Whatever your reason for managing your allergies, a room designed to reduce exposure to allergens and irritants is your best option for worry-free travel.

When you’re planning your next trip, consider reserving an allergy-friendly hotel room.  You can easily search for hotels that offer these rooms in many large and small cities across the country.
