ROAD RUNNER
Hit the road while on the road without consulting a compass. Fairmont hotels are issuing plastic, Velcro-closure “wristwatches” printed with RUNNING/WALKING TRAILS AROUND THE HOTELS in place of the clock face. Guests in Chicago, New Orleans, New York, San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Monica, and Toronto can take it out for a spin. Thumbs up for realizing there’s more to a hotel stay than room service and a minibar. (800) 441-1414, www.fairmont.com
