The hotel has a fitness center. It does not have a pool. The fitness center is located in the basement, with entry with a hotel room key card.
Although the gym is not large, it is not cramped. In fact, I was the only person there for the 45 minutes I was working out. There are a few cardio machines – one treadmill, one elliptical stairmaster and one recumbent bicycle. They are all made by LifeFitness. The machines are all new, work well and have good entertainment systems.
There are also weights and plenty of room on the floor to lift or stretch.
The wall behind the cardio machines is decoratively painted. One wall – near the weights – is mirrored.
The hotel also provides headphones, towels and water.
I would have loved to run outdoors but the roads were covered with snow and ice. I was thrilled to have a gym “in the building.” I ran three miles on the
dreadmill treadmill and was happy as can be!
And now the pros and cons. I’ve stated the pros above so here are the cons.
First, I don’t generally like gyms that are in basements. I prefer bright rooms with windows. But, I can’t have everything I want, and this facility was clean and well lit.
Second, I didn’t like the fact that the cardio machines face the back wall. It’s just not Feng Shui. From a security perspective, I found myself turning around a lot looking to see if anyone was entering the room. My suggestion – change the position of the cardio machines and/or add more mirrors in the room.
Third, I think the fitness center could use a second treadmill. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been at small hotel gyms and it is impossible to get a turn on the hotel’s one treadmill.
