|| Whole Foods getting into hotels ||
Anyone ready to check in yet?
Not sure what to make of this?
I guess it kinda makes sense as a health resort since most of their foods are healthy.
Actually I´d love to see Whole Foods being a supplier of food and drink to regular hotels (along with the regular stuff), for example run a Whole Foods cafe like Starbucks in the lobby. Healthy foods are not always easy to get everywhere, I think there is a market for that.
I don't go to Whole Foods for a "healthy lifestyle education." I go there because Safeway sells bad produce and doesn't staff their meat counter. While I don't object to the idea of a Whole Foods-branded health resort, I feel that they are much more than just a froo froo organic all-natural grocery store. What it really is is a high-end grocery store, and organic and "alternative" food products are merely one aspect of that.
If they affiliate with one of the major chains I might think about it, it not I can buy their products and still get hotel points elsewhere.
I agree with Scott that I could care less about the organic stuff, but rather like the good produce and meat, and the excellent cheese selection.
If they run a promotion like Club Carlson's stay one get 50K points, I would be happy to stay
It'll probably be stay one and get a free range turkey.
Of course, they would also have prices 10-15% higher than a similar place with similar products. But hey, Austin is also home of Dell Computers.
