Nourish, the first program, was designed to enhance the in-room dining menus with vegan, gluten-free and organic selections that detail nutritional values. A Healthy Kids Menu by Trump will also provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for the junior set. Minibars feature healthier snacks. At least one-third of all choices at each hotel will be in a health food category.
As part of the Nourish program, culinary teams have partnered with organic certifying companies to develop a selection of menu items made with organic ingredients that are sourced locally and delivered fresh daily.
The second program was designed to accommodate guests on the go. Quick Bites is an express in-room menu that will include healthy options with guaranteed delivery times of 15 minutes or less.
The third program, Travel Fit, finds ways in which to help guests ensure that they maintain their workout programs – whether in their rooms or at the fitness center. Such equipment as yoga mats, stretch bands and lightweights will be available to guests upon request. Fitness apparel and footwear from Under Armour will be available for guests who don’t bring their own apparel. Fitness centers are equipped with training cards depicting workouts developed exclusively for Trump.
“We’ve introduced Sonesta summer savings just as our guests are beginning plans for their vacations,” said Scott Weiler, corporate vice president of marketing and communication for Sonesta. “We want this offer to make it easier for our guests to explore our growing portfolio, whether it is a business traveler adding a weekend with the family to their business trip, or quick getaway to discover a new destination.”
A two-night minimum stay is required and the offer is not available to groups.
