Element Hotel in Las Vegas adds pedal-power to charge your tablet

An announcement on Dec. 10 alerted me to the fact that guests of Element Hotels now can pedal their way to a fully charged tablet or smart phone. Since there is an  Element Hotel in Summerlin, at 10555 Discovery Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89135  it seemed like an interesting tidbit to pass along.

The pilot to Element’s Pedal for Power program, unveiled at Element Miami International Airport’s opening event, saw bicycling enthusiast and Starwood president and CEO Frits van Paasschen join associates in a pedal-pushing effort that generated enough electricity to power up flat-screen plasma monitors and laptops for a virtual ribbon-cutting. 

According to the press information, the Element Hotel fitness centers are well equipped and open 24 hours. Saline pools and bikes to borrow are available to give travelers added incentive to get up and go. 

Other tenets of the brand’s commitment to balanced living on the road include the following:
  • Guest rooms and public spaces are designed to be bathed in natural daylight, as guests’ mood and productivity are improved in a well-lit environment.
  • Complimentary RISE breakfast offers healthy options including egg white wraps and fruit smoothies.
  • Seamless connectivity is offered via free Wi-Fi in public spaces and in guest rooms, which also include ergonomic chairs at workstations.
  • Guests can work, relax and fuel up on their own schedules, with kitchens in every room and a fully stocked 24/7 grab and go gourmet pantry.
