Need to be in the thick of NYC's most frenzied tourist trap, a.k.a. Times Square? Crowne Plaza is your best lodging and workout option. You're within steps of Broadway theaters, a quarter mile from Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center and a mile from Central Park. Far from a boutique accommodation, this 46 floor, high-rise hotel sprouts 770 rooms, including a "concierge" floor. The standard rooms are small, but attractive with light colors and modern touches. WiFi is free.

What we really like about this property is the super-convenient fitness option. Located on the hotel's 15th floor, the 29,000 square-foot, full-service, private gym is independently operated by New York Sports Club. The up-to-date and cutting-edge equipment will no doubt elevate your heart rate. The Club's modern design ensures that your workout will not be retro. And there are spinning classes to really get the blood flowing.

Access is complimentary to the marginal 4-lane, 4-foot deep pool. Floating lane lines and bottom stripes help swimmers navigate these calm, chlorinated waters. But if your workout calls for more than 2,000 yards, consider popping a Dramamine to fend off potential flip-turn induced dizziness you may suffer in this 17-yard shorty. Since this is one of the busiest gyms in Manhattan, expect to "work-in" with others.

Join Crowne's Priority Club to have club admission fee waived. Often it's free if you just request. You can register for the reward program upon arrival at the front desk.
