The TRYP Times Square South is a three-star hotel located near iconic NYC hotspots like Madison Square Garden and the Empire State Building. Cyclists will love that there’s a bike rental shop conveniently located right on the same block and runners can head just a few avenues over to the West Side Highway for a waterfront jogging path that stretches for miles down to Battery Park.
Best Fitness Features: The TRYP Times Square South has a small gym that's open 24/7, but also provides free day passes to the nearby New York Sports Club for when you want to take an early-morning boxing class or get access to a larger variety of exercise equipment. If you really want to eliminate all excuses for ditching your workout, book an individual Fitness Room so you don't even have to get dressed and go down to the gym but can sweat it out in the privacy of your own room. These special rooms have king-sized beds, flat-screen TVs, and come with your very own exercise equipment—such as a stationary bike, hand weights, yoga mat, and even workout clothes in your requested size.
Healthy Eats: Post workout you can order up a nutritious meal from the spa menu created especially for the Fitness Rooms. Try the Gastro Bar Sandwich made with roasted turkey and heart-healthy cranberries or the omega-3 packed Grilled Ahi Tuna with Cameros cheese. Celebrity chef John Walsh also holds two black belts—one in Kempo and the other in mixed martial arts—and prides himself on cooking up protein-packed recovery meals that don't skimp on taste.
