7 NYC Hotel Gyms That You Will Want To Work Out In
Sometimes the last thing on you mind when heading into NYC for a client meeting or conference is your workout routine. From setting up personal training sessions to lending out workout clothes to just offering gorgeous skyline views, these seven hotels have your health at the top of their priorities.
Located near the Empire State Building, Affinia Shelburne gives you no excuse not to stay fit. Using the complementary Republic Bikes onsite, you can pedal to NYC’s top landmarks during your free time; just ask for a map of popular cycling routes.
If you’re skeptical of biking in NYC traffic, request the walking tour kit which comes with an iPod loaded with a walking tour, workout playlists, pedometer, and guidebook. Plus, there’s a fitness concierge that doubles as a personal trainer, in-room StayFit fitness kit, and 24-hour gym. Like I said, no excuses!
EVEN Hotel Times Square South
This hotel chain is designed with your health in mind.
Its 24-hour athletic studio is equipped with trendy Woodway treadmills and Peloton spin bikes. And if you’d rather get sweaty in the comfort of your room, EVEN has in-room fitness zones equipped with a yoga mat, stability ball, and foam roller. Grab a made-to-order smoothie post-workout at Cork & Kale, the hotel’s restaurant, before heading to your client meeting.
Paper Factory Hotel
This Long Island City boutique hotel’s light-filled gym – with Manhattan skyline views – is nothing like the dark basement gyms you might be used to while traveling.
The exposed brick walls are even decorated with contemporary art. The gym offers cardio equipment, free weights, and a punching bag to relief all post-work stress.
New York Marriott Marquis
This Times Square hotel fitness center is the largest NYC hotel gym at 4,000 square feet – prime real estate!
This upper floor gym gives you a glimpse of the chaotic streets below and features Life Fitness machines including cross trainers, bikes, rowers, and treadmills which let you customize your prefect routine. All Marriott hotels also feature an in-room fitness and workout program called Fit For You.
The Standard High Line Hotel
Far from standard (see what I did there), this funky hotel gym features floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking views of the Hudson River and the downtown Manhattan skyline. Open 24 hours, you can still grab drinks with a coworker before hopping on a Peloton spin bike to make up for said drink. The gym also includes elliptical machines, treadmills, yoga balls, and free weights.
W New York Downtown
As you work out on the state-of-the-art exercise equipment in the W New York Downtown, indulge in spectacular views of downtown New York City through large sprawling windows.
If you’re the type of person who needs a little friendly encouragement, the three personal trainers at this Financial District favorite can lend you a hand. Everything from HIIT, flexibility, and boxing, these trainers will have your heart racing in between conference calls.
TRYP by Wyndham NYC
Only for the diehard fitness savvy business travelers, you can book the Fitness Room at this Midtown hotel which provides an exercise bike IN YOUR ROOM plus trendy exercise clothing IN YOUR SIZE! If you can’t convince your company to splurge on this Fitness Room, you can get free day passes to the nearby New York Sports Club from the front desk which offers group classes as well as a larger gym than the onsite one.
