Hilton added a great new room type earlier this year, with a focus on in-room wellness.
Called “Five Feet to Fitness“, the new room category is perfect for people who prefer to workout in privacy rather than in a public gym. It is as good for road warriors who wouldn’t ordinarily have the time to squeeze in some exercise as it is for someone wanting to do yoga stretches in the mornings. Plus, all the equipment is right in the room so it might be easier to get motivated when you don’t have to go downstairs to a different room.
After scarfing down room service, you can easily work off those extra calories by reaching over to any of the performance equipment and eleven fitness pieces and accessories right in the room. Try to ignore the fitness equipment and squeeze your eyes shut? When you open your eyes, the equipment will conveniently still be in front of you, begging you to at least consider doing a few reps or spending 5 minutes in the meditation chair.
Here’s what you can expect to find in the new Five Feet to Fitness room:
-Indoor bike that helps you focus on interval-training
-Gym RaxTM functional training station for working out your core, as well as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts
-Fitness Kiosk, which has a touchscreen display for tutorials and guided workouts
-Biofreeze to relieve muscle tension
-New drink and snack choices for protein and hydration
Where you can find Hilton’s new Five Feet to Fitness rooms –
There are currently just two locations with the new fitness-focused rooms.
Hilton’s press release back from this summer says the new room is coming soon to Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York, and San Diego.
It pulled up easily for the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner with just a perfunctory search.
The nightly rate was identical to that of a standard guest room whether choosing King Bed, Queens, etc.
I think these rooms sound great and I look forward to trying one out! I only hope that housekeeping does a proper wipe-down and cleaning of all the equipment after a guest vacates the room, since sweaty equipment is gross. If I’m feeling a little lazy but really want to keep my workout routine when traveling, this eliminates my excuses.
Even if you pass on the workout, don’t do yoga, and skip the meditation, having those blackout shades will help with better sleep!
