Thayer unveils healthy meeting program

Thayer Lodging Group are set to offer allergy-friendly guest accommodations at ten of
their hotels and 99.9% allergenic-free meeting facilities at four of their
Executive Meeting Centers and Conference Centers.“Thayer Lodging Group has emerged as an industry leader in offering
travelers healthy alternatives to meeting and sleeping accommodations,”
says Haley Payne, Director of Wellness for Thayer Lodging. “By offering
PURE allergy-friendly hotel rooms and conference spaces, we offer our
guests and meeting attendees the benefit of being in healthy, more
productive environments.”
  Utilizing the PURE Room system, the most comprehensive allergy-friendly
system in the hospitality industry, Thayer Lodging will offer guests an
environment where surfaces are treated to minimize contaminants and
irritants, such as mold spores, yeast, bacteria, pollen, dust, dust mites
and chlorine—as well as their odors.
  In Thayer Lodging Group “Pure Conference Rooms,” air will be purified
at greater intensity and will be filtrated eight times more frequently than
standard air handling systems. Featuring a 99.9% non-allergenic treatment
of air and surfaces, and frequently recycled air to lower levels of sleep-
inducing carbon dioxide, these IACC-Certified Conference Centers will aim
to increase meeting attendee productivity. As poor indoor air quality can
affect attentiveness, responsiveness and performance, these Pure Conference
Rooms have the possibility to drastically increase meeting efficiency.
  Currently, Thayer Lodging Group offers seven hotels with PURE allergy-
friendly rooms, four with PURE conference space and three more hotels are
scheduled to have PURE rooms by mid-July. These hotels include:
  Annapolis Marriott Waterfront, MD
  Doubletree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center Bethesda, MD
  Bethesda Residence Inn, MD
  Doubletree Hotel Palm Beach Gardens, FL
  Wyndham Hotel & Conference Center Miami Airport, FL
