I’ve stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich, Connecticut many times. It is one of my top staycation choices – it’s elegant, close to Manhattan, and usually has great rates. I’ve also written about the delicious farm-to-table weekend breakfasts in the hotel restaurant (included for Diamond members since the Regency Club is closed weekends) and the amazing Sunday Champagne Brunch.
The StayFit Fitness Center and Pool are conveniently located on the main floor of the hotel. The fitness center is L-shaped. The main room has treadmills, stairmasters, stationary bicycles and other cardio machines all by the LifeFitness brand. The machines are in good condition and have working entertainment systems. My main gripe about this room is that there are few mirrors. The cardio machines all face the pool, but the window is frosted, so there is nothing to see. I think the room would be more open and the treadmill workout more interesting if the windows were not frosted or only partially frosted.
At the end of the long room, and into the next area, are free weights and circuit machines. There is a good selection, and the mirrors are better in this area. I also like the pop of red paint on the walls.
There is also a water cooler, headsets and towels, and adjoining restrooms with lockers, toilets and showers.
Through a door in the fitness center is the entry to the indoor pool and hot tub.
I have worked out at the hotel fitness center many times, and it was always clean and conducive to working out. On other days, I walked or ran outdoors – as the hotel is in a beautiful area.
Also, there is an incredible New York Sports Club about a 5-minute jog from the hotel. I belong to the NYSC, so sometimes I work out there instead of at the hotel gym.
