Guests of at least one Element Hotel can now pedal their way to a fully charged tablet or smart phone.

The Element Miami International Airport has installed a stationary bike with a pedal-powered generator in each of its fitness centers.

Brian McGuinness, Senior Vice President of Specialty Select Brands for Starwood, "The Element brand was founded on an innovative, balanced-living approach to hospitality. Not only do our pedal-powered bikes add an element of fun to a workout, but they also encourage our guests to think creatively about sourcing the energy we all depend on to fuel our daily lives."

The new power-generating bikes are just the latest in a series of design features and amenities that enhance the wellbeing of Element guests while offering them tools to be productive and active. Fitness centers are well equipped and open 24 hours. Saline pools and bikes to borrow are available to give travelers added incentive to get up and go. Other tenets of the brand's commitment to balanced living on the road include the following:

- Guest rooms and public spaces are designed to be bathed in natural daylight, as guests' mood and productivity are improved in a well-lit environment.

- Complimentary RISE breakfast offers healthy options including egg white wraps and fruit smoothies.

- Seamless connectivity is offered via free Wi-Fi in public spaces and in guest rooms, which also include ergonomic chairs at workstations.

- Guests can work, relax and fuel up on their own schedules, with kitchens in every room and a fully stocked 24/7 grab and go gourmet pantry.
