As I discussed here, I recently visited the Long Island Hyatt Regency.
As you might know, I like to collect and feature hotel jogging maps in this blog. I asked if the hotel had a jogging map but was told they do not, because . . . the hotel is on a busy street without sidewalks. Instead, I was told that they tell guests that they should run the perimeter of the grounds, i.e., the parking lot. That is not ideal, but I was only at the hotel one night, so it wasn’t a real problem for me. Had my stay been longer, I would have asked for recommendations for local places, schools or parks to run.
It was drizzling when I ventured out the door of the hotel the morning of July 4th. The hotel is on the same property as the Hamlet Wind Watch Golf and Country Club. The grounds really are beautiful.
I navigated my way over to the there to take a look, and was quickly admonished that there was no running or walking allowed, and so I took some photos and continued on my way. It was beginning to rain anyway.
I love gazebos!
I confess, at this point, I did not feel badly for the golfers that the rain was starting to come down a little harder.
I continued on and saw the outdoor swimming pool. It was raining, so it too was closed.
I went indoors to the fitness center. It’s a full-sized signature StayFit Center, next door to the indoor pool.
It really is a nice fitness center – a large facility, with a full assortment of new equipment. The room is clean and mirrored.
The indoor pool is fabulous. It’s large and clean, and there’s a hot tub.
