Rolling out at the brand’s over 230 properties globally beginning this month, the next generation WestinWORKOUT® Gear Lending program will encompass a library of kits allowing guests to borrow the equipment they need – whenever they want – to optimize their stay and feel their best. Over the past decade, ​through both operational and consumer feedback, Westin has evolved and enhanced its Gear Lending program to meet consumers where they are today.
