I RECENTLY STAYED AT THE GRAND HYATT DENVER hotel and was so very happy to find it had a roof top oval track as well as a indoor fitness center and pool. A plaque on the wall next to the track announced the “StayFit “program. This Hyatt hotel information has been added to the OH THE PLACES YOU’LL GO! page. A search of the Hyatt website did not reveal much about availability of this center/service system-wide, but specific hotels had information on what was available at that site. It would be wise to check with the hotel at which you hope to stay to be assured of this benefit when traveling.
These benefits are of most concern when your reason for visiting a place does not leave much room for hotel choice. For me it was a meeting in a downtown location. The hotel was the site of the conference and there was a discounted rate for participants. Staying farther away would have involved using more costly transportation, and the rates elsewhere in cheaper chains were not significantly less. If you do have a choice of hotels, checking out the locations of those you’re considering in advance and determining the availability and suitability of nearby trails, roads, bike paths or sidewalks for safe running is well worth the effort.
