Even the most dedicated exercise junkies can lose ground with a grueling travel schedule, so hotels are making an effort to help. Many will deliver yoga mats, exercise balls, and weights to guests' rooms. At some Omni and Hilton locations, guests can upgrade to a special fitness room with treadmill, dumbbells, floor mat, stretch cord, mini radio headset, bottle of water, and minibar stocked with healthy snacks.

For those who like to get their exercise outside, Hyatt hotels offer maps to local jogging trails and armband-mounted GPS receivers programmed with the hotel's coordinates to help guests find their way back. The Affinia Dumont in Manhattan will help guests make long-term fitness goals by sending up a "fitness concierge" (a certified personal trainer) to create individual exercise plans. Your plan is even kept on file to remind you of your objectives -- if you want to be reminded -- when you return.
