Marriott Hotels is tapping into the soon-to-boom trend for “transformational travel” with a series of workshops designed to “help people achieve their full potential” and “inspire a generation of forward-thinking achievers”.

The three “Transform with Marriott” workshops will be hosted by industry experts and will be open to both hotel guests and the public. They will take place at three hotels in London – the Marriott Regents Park, Marriott County Hall and Marriott Park Lane – which have all be recently revamped.

John Licence, vice-president of premium and select brands, Europe, says: “This is a pivotal time in the history of the Marriott Hotels brand as we continue to innovate and reimagine the hotel experience by enhancing every aspect of the guest stay.

“With some of the capital’s icons going through their own transformation, it seemed like the perfect time to offer new ways of thinking to those who want to get ahead – both personally and professionally. We’ve chosen three of our transformed Marriott Hotels in the heart of London to offer the ideal backdrop for these inspiring workshops.”

The Art of Tidying: September 7, 2017 at London Marriott Hotel County Hall

Marriott is enlisting the help of an organisational expert to demonstrate how a tidy environment can transform lives for the better, both at home and in a hotel guestroom whilst on the move. These transformational skills will be taught in the Westminster Suite at London Marriott Hotel County Hall. Bookings for this workshop will open in July 2017.

Clean Sleeping: October 19, 2017 at London Marriott Hotel Park Lane

The “clean sleeping” phenomenon has been heralded as one of the biggest wellness trends of the year (it essentially refers to methods employed to ensure restful, rejuvinating, deep sleep).

Marriott Hotels is teaming up with a sleep guru to show how honing a routine of good rest, particularly while travelling, will help guests stay sharp and boost their wellbeing. The session will prepare guests for the clocks going back on October 29, a time of year when people look to maximise their sleep. Bookings for this workshop will open in August 2017.
