This Hampton Inn is situated about 8 miles south of downtown and is a double-score for athletic-minded travelers looking to stay fit and eat right when they're on the road. 124 guest rooms fill this hotel, each full of the amenities you're used to from this hotel chain: free breakfast, complimentary WiFi, 32" flat screen televisions and shuttle service that's on the house.
If you're looking for a quick workout, then check out the in-house exercise room. There's a treadmill and an elliptical for the cardio fiends and a dumbbell set (5-50 pounds) for a decent muscle pump. Fortunately the hotel has a relationship with the Harris YMCA, which is only 1.2 miles from the front door! This is a full-service community center (with a very good lap pool) that's free to guests, so take advantage!
When you're done with your workout, hop across the parking lot near the Hampton Inn to get refueled at Whole Foods. They're bound to have something fresh and nutrient-dense to get your body ready for the next adventure.
