The 10 Best Hotel Gyms of 2007

Whether or not a hotel you'll be staying at has a good gym is pretty much a crap shoot. A "well-equipped gym" could end up being mismatched hand weights with a treadmill from '89. Lucky for us the AthleticMindedTraveler has searched over 3,500 hotels across the United States to find the top ten with the best gyms.

So without further ado, here's the list:

  1. Houstonian (Houston)
  2. Renaissance ClubSport (Walnut Creek, Calif.)
  3. Park Hyatt at the Bellevue (Philadelphia)
  4. Four Seasons (San Francisco)
  5. Embassy Suites Lakefront (Chicago)
  6. Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine (La Jolla, Calif.)
  7. Westin Atlanta Perimeter North (Atlanta)
  8. Grand Hotel (Minneapolis)
  9. Broadmoor (Colorado Springs, Colo.)
  10. Venetian (Las Vegas)

Have any of you been lucky enough to stay at any of these hotels? If you used the gym, tell me about it in the comments section below.

The Grand in Minneapolis actually used to be an athletic club- that's why it's so good!

I stayed at this place in San Salvador that had a freakin' AWESOME gym. Loads of cardio equipment, several TVs, a bunch of weight machines and freeweights, a minibar stocked with water and Gatorade. I've never been to any of those on the list though. I will say, I do like it when hotels have a decent workout facility. It makes traveling so much easier.

My sister in law used to go to the Walnut Creek ClubSport - I went to the bar there once, it was fab.

these sound so great! I seem to stay at the hotels with one dirty or broken stationary bike. On the positive side - it encourages me to get out and walk in the mornings when traveling. :)

Crazy, I've never seen anything like that! Now I just have to convince my husband that I want to visit Houston just so I can stay at the hotel with the #1 gym.

OMG the houstonian is amazing but it's like super-expensive to join, way more than I can afford. Maybe one day...

Oh my goodness... I stayed at the Houstonian when I was in Houston for work. It is AMAZING. It's so huge and so plentiful with its machines. AND its beds are so incredibly comfy and the concierge is the most helpful man on earth. If only that weird creeper guy wasn't stalking me and my coworker (he even called her hotel room). I am kinda sad it's #1 though; that means I won't see better!
