The London NYC is an upscale option for both business and romantic travel. Plus, it’s walking-friendly, thanks to its convenient location just blocks away from Lincoln Center, MoMA, Carnegie Hall, Fifth Avenue, Times Square, and Central Park.
Best Fitness Features: While many hotel gyms are cramped and feel more like an after-thought, the London NYC’s 24-hour, spa-like fitness facility is spacious and cutting edge. Designed by David Collins Studios, the gym features clean wood elements and large windows that let in plenty of natural light, as well as cardio machines that have individual TVs, an extensive collection of free weights, and an ample stretching area. It also has a Kinesis Wall, a four-station circuit that uses resistance cables. The Kinesis wall helps you workout smarter in less time because it allows you to combine cardio, strength, and flexibility moves. Personal training sessions and in-room massages are also available.
Healthy Eats: While the Gordon Ramsay at The London is a two-Michelin star restaurant that serves up French-inspired cuisine, you also have the option of the more casual MAZE eatery offering a seasonal-inspired menu (think: Amish chicken breast or slow-cooked organic hen’s egg with spinach). Check out the adjacent London Bar’s seasonal specials, such as a power smoothie made with muscle-soothing organic Wakaya ginger powder.
