Four Great Hotel Choices for Health-Minded Travelers
Summertime is a top season for traveling. And the savviest hotel chains increasingly are pulling out the stops for health-conscious and weight loss-minded guests. According to the American Hotel & Lodging Association, 84 percent of hotels have fitness facilities - a statistic that represents a 63-percent boost over the past decade. But the amenities go far beyond a hotel gym. If you're working to lose weight and have travel plans this summer, consider one of these top fitness-friendly chains.
- Westin Hotels and Resorts: Signature Westin WORKOUT rooms feature dumbbells, fitness DVDs, resistance bands and stability balls, along with a treadmill or stationary bike. If you're a running enthusiast, the RunWestin program includes scenic group outings with a running concierge. Or, ask the front desk for a three-mile or five-mile running/walking route map and go at your own pace. Forgot to pack your workout gear? No worries. Borrow New Balance apparel and running shoes with disposable insoles for a nominal charge.
- Sheraton Hotels and Resorts: Ask for the complimentary Gym-In-A-Bag, which comes with an exercise mat, resistance band, massage stick, foam roller and a book that details dozens of great exercises that you can do in the privacy of your room. Grab the TV remote and choose from an array of on-demand fitness videos and online training programs by Core Performance. Hungry yet? Sheraton's Color Your Plate program offers 500-calorie meals with a minimum of three colors from fruits and veggies, whole grains, lean proteins and healthy fats.
- Fairmont Hotels and Resorts: When checking in, ask for a Fairmont Fit kit - a set of Reebok workout clothing and shoes, an MP3 player pre-loaded with workout-friendly music, a yoga mat and a stretch band. Use them to stay on a healthy track throughout your stay and if you love them, you can purchase and take them home with you at checkout. Most Fairmont locations also offer BMW Cruise Bikes to check out so you can get some exercise while taking in the local scenery.
- TRYP by Wyndham: Book a signature Fitness Room and choose between an in-room elliptical machine, exercise bike or treadmill. You'll also get an exercise mat to use throughout your stay and a complimentary t-shirt and shorts to wear while working out.
