Marriott International’s eco-conscious longer-stay brand Element Hotels and S’well, the fashionable, reusable hydration accessory company, are launching a national partnership, which will be activated at all 26 Element Hotels in the United States. Together, Element Hotels and S’well will be inspiring guests to make a positive impact and mindful choices for the environment and for themselves.
As a stylish, reusable product that helps consumers stay hydrated and consume less plastic while on the go, S’well bottles will be available for purchase at Element Hotels’ RESTORE pantry and in each room. Guests will be able to conveniently fill their S’wells at the filtered water spouts present in guestrooms.
“When you choose a S’well product, you’re choosing a beautiful, simple, sustainable way to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day – doing yourself and the planet a favor,” said Sarah Kauss, Founder and CEO of S’well. “This partnership is a perfect opportunity to help guests start to create smart habits that they can carry with them throughout the year and wherever their adventures take them.”
S’well products will also be available for purchase in-hotel at Element Hotels’ sister brands AC Hotels by Marriott and Aloft Hotels and they will also be on-site at Moxy Hotels. S’well bottles will be available at more than 150 properties from January 2018, and the partnership will include a wide array of styles and distribution strategies unique to individual locales.
“Our new partnership with S’well is a motivational way to start the new year while offering our Element Hotels guests a fashionable and practical tool to stay hydrated throughout 2018 and beyond,” said Toni Stoeckl, Global Brand Leader and Vice President, Distinctive Select Brands, Marriott International. “We know making sustainable and health-conscious choices is something that is really important to our guests, so we’re excited to be able to provide them easy access to S’well bottles at all of our 150+ U.S. properties in the Distinctive Select portfolio.”
Marriott International embraces its global responsibility and unique opportunity to be a force for good, recently launching its 2025 Sustainability and Social Impact Goals. While integrating sustainability across its value chain and mitigating climate-related risk, the company is working to reduce environmental impacts, build and operate sustainable hotels and source responsibly. Guided by its sustainability and social impact platform, Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction, Marriott is committed to making a positive and sustainable impact wherever it does business.
