Location & Hours
The gym is open for guests 24 hours a day with attendants on duty from 7:00am to 10:00pm and services/treatments available from 9
They have a great selection of machines! Everything was good quality, clean, and functional. They had something for just about every bodypart and multiples of some including the chest presses.
They had a separate room for cardio equipment, which was kind of awkwardly all facing the front where they had some kind of a motivational montage on the wall. Didn’t make much difference since each machine has its own TV. I did notice, however, that at least 3 of the treadmills I tried weren’t working properly (couldn’t set the incline) so I had to hop around several times which was a bit annoying. Otherwise, they had a large selection of bikes, ellipticals, and treadmills for use.
I didn’t do a very good job of photographing this area (or any at this gym, for that matter), but the freeweight section was impressive. They have a full rack of dumbbells, fixed-weight barbells, and bench press racks with olympic bars and plates. No freeweight squat rack in sight, but a Smith machine worked as an alternative. Very pleased with the selection here.
Amenities included towels, fruit, and headphones available at the front desk. They had a couple of attendants/trainers walking around and cleaning up to keep the place tidy which I appreciated.
Pool & Spa
We didn’t get a chance to check these out, but from what I heard and read they are on part with the rest of the facilities (i.e. very good).
Great atmosphere in this gym. I like that the cardio equipment was in a separate room from the weights so that neither group is distracting the other or getting in the way. I don’t recall what kind of music was playing or if it was too loud–which means that it wasn’t bothersome. It wasn’t overcrowded at all and I had no problems or delays using any of the equipment.
This is a fantastic gym and on par with the best I have been to. If you’re staying at this hotel, don’t pass up a trip!
