Phone battery flat? Better get on your bike!

A new 'green' hotel has introduced a scheme where hotel residents can keep fit whilst at the same time generating enough power to charge everyday items like phones and laptops.

The Element Hotel in Miami is part of the Starwood chain and hopes to appeal to guests who wish to experience healthy food such as fruit smoothies,egg white wraps, 24 hour fitness centres and saline pools. The Element hotel should also be a nice place to stay with an emphasis rooms with large swathes of natural light.

Commenting on the latest pilot scheme, Brian McGuiness of Starwood said:  "At Element, we're committed to helping guests stay active, healthy and productive on the road. Since its inception, the brand has also served as Starwood's green innovation lab. This initiative perfectly blends these objectives, and we're happy to see this pilot make its debut at Element Miami International Airport."

Good luck!
