There is no dearth of hotels in the Big Apple. We've selected a few that offer amenities of interest to the sophisticated traveler who exercises regularly or loves being pampered. The hotels here all offer great fitness or spa facilities, luxury accommodations, and excellent service. We are offering you facts like pool length because we hate the disappointment of a dipping pool when we planned on swimming laps. Location matters, too: we'll tell you which hotels make it easy to get to a run or leisurely meander through Central Park. We offer trainers in that category who can show you the trails and help you pick up your pace.
Chelsea is one of New York City’s recently gentrified neighborhoods that is a pleasure to amble through. It is home to art galleries, great shops, and an uncountable number of restaurants. The side streets are dotted with charming townhouses and former warehouses and department stores with great windows that now house the city's photographers, design studios, and architectural firms.
