EVEN Hotel Eugene had its grand opening a little over a year ago, on February 15th, 2018. It's become one of the more intriguing luxury hotels in the Pacific Northwest, focusing primarily on delivering a comprehensive luxury hospitality experience coupled with extensive fitness services and amenities. This innovative luxury fitness hotel also happens to be located right across the street from Autzen Stadium, Oregon University’s famed football stadium and a major draw to the area.
Here are some of the perks of the hotel.
1. Comprehensive Luxury Hospitality
First and foremost, EVEN Hotel Eugene conveys a luxury atmosphere in a fairly unique and comprehensive way, despite looking in ways almost casual for a luxury establishment.
Each individual room has countless lavish amenities. For instance, each mattress in every room has cooling eucalyptus linens to soothe your skin. Every room's windows come with blackout shades to ensure the sun doesn’t stop you from getting your requisite beauty sleep. The bathrooms have invigorating, spa-like, glass-enclosed showers and eco-friendly, salon-inspired signature bath products. Next to your bed you'll even find an adjustable LED mood light that can set the perfect ambiance with a variety of colors.
Rooms in EVEN Hotel Eugene also offer more run-of-the-mill amenities such as sofa beds, infant cribs, desks, and basic kitchen needs, and guests will have access to a heated indoor pool, free high-speed Wi-Fi, free parking, outdoor fire pits, and extensive HD television options.
2. Extensive Fitness Services & Amenities
EVEN Hotel Eugene endeavors to defy the idea that travel has to disrupt one’s fitness regime. Not only does this luxury hotel strive to keep its lodgers eating and resting well, it strives to keep them active and fit. The hotel has numerous services and amenities for this specific purpose. These include an overarching sanctuary design, healthy food options, a comprehensive main fitness center, the aforementioned heated indoor pool, in-room personal fitness stations, and a special “running package."
The overarching sanctuary design is perhaps what stands out most from that list, as it's not something most hotels would boast of. In this case though, the EVEN Hotel Eugene uses this design as a means of cultivating a calming, constructive environment, as well as to stimulate energy-boosting workouts among guests. Indeed, to suit these purposes, the hotel's front lobby even resembles the general look of a rejuvenating spa.
Healthy food options abound at EVEN Hotel Eugene as well. Most notably, healthy food is on offer at the Cork and Kale hotel restaurant. The Cork and Kale offers a wide variety of freshly prepared and customizable dishes. And meals can always be tailored to specific dietary needs, such as gluten-free and heart-healthy.
Furthering the focus on health, EVEN Hotel Eugene also provides lodgers with a comprehensive state-of-the-art fitness center. It provides all of the required equipment (cardio machines, weight machines, and free weights) one might need to maintain a regular workout routine. Additionally, as mentioned, guests can enjoy personal fitness stations in their own rooms. These include resistance belts, large workout balls, weighted medicine balls, stationary bikes, fitness kits, and training guides and videos.
The aforementioned “Running Package” caps things off, providing guests with an area map, duffel bag, and various other supplies that help to facilitate local runs.
3. Close Proximity To Autzen Stadium
It may seem odd to include a college football stadium as a hotel perk, but for those who aren't familiar, college football is extraordinarily popular. Many fans plan their whole weeks around big games, and in Eugene, throngs of Oregon supporters pack the stadium week in and week out - all passionate for one reason or another. Some are students, some are alumni, some are generic football fans, and some will even have money riding on games. Online bookmaking sites are only just starting to be legalized in the U.S., but they already focus heavily on American sports, and college football has a fairly robust betting market. As you might imagine this only adds to the buzz in the Eugene area on game days!
Whether or not you have a connection to the Oregon football program, or you have any interest in betting on games, the hotel's close proximity to Autzen Stadium is considered to be a legitimate selling point. At a mere 0.3 miles away (a six-minute walk down the street), EVEN Hotel Eugene is the closest hotel in the city to the stadium. This is, in and of itself, a treat for a lot of people who might be looking to visit.
Considering all of the above, it's easy to see why EVEN Hotel Eugene has become one of the more interesting new luxury hotels in the western United States. Whether you just want to have a spa-like luxury getaway, you're looking for a vacation that allows you to focus on fitness, or you want to explore the college town and enjoy Oregon football, it's a place to keep in mind.
