Travelers to Arlington, Texas, can breathe a little easier, knowing the Hilton Arlington Hotel has become the first Hilton hotel in the city to introduce allergy-friendly rooms, known as Pure Rooms. Travelers who suffer from severe allergies, chemical sensitivities and asthma can now enjoy clean, fresh air in their rooms and enjoy a more restful sleep during their stay.

“The opening of our new Pure Rooms has created an excitement for our guests upon arrival to the hotel, and guests are calling me afterward to ensure they get another Pure Room during their next stay with us," said James Shandor, general manager.

The Pure concept utilizes special purification techniques whereby each room is treated comprehensively to remove allergens and irritants from all surfaces, fabrics and air flow. The cutting-edge and rigorous conversion process, designed by Pure Solutions ensures that air handling units are deeply cleaned and sanitized and, then, equipped with the company's specially made Tea Tree Oil Cartridge. Pure tea tree oil is an all natural antiseptic and disinfectant that maintains the sanitary conditions created during the initial conversion process. Soft surfaces are sanitized to eliminate irritants and contaminants that can trigger allergies and cause discomfort. The room also undergoes a one-time shock treatment to kill any remaining living organisms and their associated irritants. A bacteriostatic barrier, called Pure Shield, is applied to all surfaces to prevent the growth of bacteria.

To maintain these ideal conditions in the rooms, a state-of-the-art air purification system is installed, creating air quality that averages four times cleaner than the threshold necessary for asthma patients. This system is classified by the FDA as a Class II medical device. Special micro-fiber, hypo-allergenic pillow cases and mattress covers are used to reduce allergies triggered by dust mites.

"Statistically, one-third of travelers report having allergies or traveling with family members have allergic reactions. [We are] committed to offering the best air quality for any hotel guest, allergy sufferers or not," said Brian Brault, CEO of Pure Solutions.
