A few miles south of Embassy Suites, Hawthorn Suites offers similar quality accommodations as Embassy and a free off-site workout option. In keeping with the brand's theme, this 152 room property welcomes guests with two-room suites, fully equipped kitchens, refrigerators and microwaves. Though never astonishing with jaw-dropping luxury or over-the-top décor, a Hawthorn stay is a trusty hotel option. Count on leaving well rested and with a full stomach, a free hot full breakfast buffet is offered each morning (weekly BBQs, too).
This location used to dish out free passes to LA Fitness (7 minute walk/3 minute drive), so it's fallen down our rankings since that perk is no more. You'll have to slap down $15 to work out at LAF.
Swimmers can choose between a 4 minute drive to Troy Community Center ($11/day) or a 10 minute drive to Lifetime Fitness ($30/day) since LAF has no pool. Shoppers may want to visit nearby Somerset Collection Mall, Neiman's, Sak's, Nordstrom, etc.
