Healthy Hotels
Heed your health at a crop of hotels where fitness — both of body and mind — is the focus. How refreshing.

  • When 55 percent of travelers surveyed said they opted not to use the standard treadmills-shoved-in-broom-closets, Westin hotels began installing health club-worthy fitness centers with “cardio theater” screens on each treadmill, bike, stepper, et al, plus workouts designed by Reebok trainers. Look for them in New York, Philadelphia, Seattle, and 73 other locations by year’s end. (800) 228-3000, www.westin.com
