Wellness breaks added at hotel

The Omni Fort Worth Hotel has begun offering “wellness break” activities and special menus for groups and associations conducting meetings at the downtown property.
Snacks, chair massages and yoga are just some offerings the hotel is gearing toward meeting attendees. The amenities come as the hotel seeks to meet the needs of health-conscious travelers.
According to an Omni-commissioned health and wellness survey conducted in 2011, 56 percent of respondents said they indulge in various food or beverages when traveling for business and slightly regretting it. The same number said they would like more low-fat options when traveling.
Foods offered on the new menus include roasted fresh baby vegetables, grilled wild mushroom relish on a whole grain crostini, and warm spiced poached apples with low fat vanilla cottage cheese, among other items.
The survey found that travelers had good intentions when it came to workouts, as nearly a third embarked on a trip with workout gear but never found the time or energy. The survey also found about 26 percent of respondents wished their hotel would provide nearby yoga or spinning studios.
The wellness breaks will be available before meetings, during breaks, after lunch and other times preferred by meeting attendees and planners.
