NYC's Best Fitness-Friendly Hotels

These 3 hotels won't let you derail your diet and excercise routine.

Related To:

New York City may be as famous for its pizza and cheesecake as it is for Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, but you won't have to feel guilty about indulging in some of these calorie-laden treats when your hotel makes it convenient to burn off those extra calories. A select number of fitness- and wellness-focused accommodations make it almost effortless to stick to — or even kick off — a workout routine. You just may return home feeling healthier than when you left. And perhaps a little more sore.

Don’t let travel derail your diet and exercise routine on your next trip to the Big Apple. These top 3 hotels will help prevent you from bringing home an extra 5 pounds as a souvenir.

TRYP by Wyndham

The 3-star TRYP By Wyndham hotel is located near hot spots such as Madison Square Garden and the Empire State Building, as well as a bike rental shop. It’s also just a few avenues away from the waterfront on the West Side Highway, where you can run for miles down to Battery Park.

Best Fitness Features
While the TRYP Times Square South has a small gym, it also provides free day passes to the nearby New York Sports Club — great for when you want to take an early-morning boxing class or get access to a larger variety of exercise equipment. However, the feature that really elevates this hotel to exceptional health status is the option to book an individual Fitness Room. These special rooms have king-sized beds, flat-screen TVs and come with your very own private exercise equipment — such as a stationary bike, hand weights, yoga mat and exercise clothes in your requested size. This eliminates all excuses for ditching your workout: You don't even have to get dressed and go down to the gym but can sweat it out in the privacy of your own room.

Healthy Eats
Order a nutritious post-workout meal from the spa menu created especially for the Fitness Rooms. Chef Joey Lopez whips up protein-packed recovery meals that don't skimp on taste, such as the Gastro Bar Sandwich made with roasted turkey and heart-healthy cranberries or the omega-3 packed grilled ahi tuna with Cameros cheese.

The AAA Four-Diamond award winner the Conrad is walking-friendly, thanks to its convenient location just blocks away from Lincoln Center, MoMA, Carnegie Hall, Fifth Avenue, Times Square and Central Park.

Best Fitness Features
While may hotel gyms are cramped and feel more like an afterthought, the Conrad NYC’s 24-hour, spa-like fitness facility is so spacious and cutting-edge that it makes you actually want to break from your sightseeing activities to hit the gym. Designed by David Collins Studios (whose motto is “global luxury architecture”), the gym features clean wood elements and large windows that let in plenty of natural light, as well as cardio machines (with individual TVs), an extensive collection of free weights and an airy stretching area. The gym also has a Kinesis wall, a 4-station circuit that uses resistance cables. The Kinesis wall helps you work out smarter in less time because it allows you to combine cardio, strength and flexibility moves. Personal training sessions and in-room massages are also available.

Healthy Eats
The in-house restaurant Dabble (temporarily closed) features plenty of healthy salads and seafood options.

Affinia Hotels and Suites

With suites that offer views of the Chrysler Building and East River, the Affinia is nestled in Midtown East, just a few blocks away from the Empire State Building, and offers easy access to some of Murray Hill’s best restaurants.

Best Fitness Features
You can combine exercise with sightseeing by pedaling around New York’s biggest landmarks on one of the Affinia’s complimentary Republic Bikes. The bikes come with a helmet, lock, basket, map of popular routes and a list of available bicycle parking racks in the area. You can also check out the on-site, 24-hour gym.

Healthy Eats
Many of Affinia’s rooms have kitchens so you can make your own healthy meals. The hotel has teamed with FreshDirect for deliveries directly to your room. The hotel also works with local nutritionists, who offer customized programs to arm you with tools for staying healthy on the road and at home, such as guided grocery-shopping excursions, personalized diet plans and cleanses.
