Staying Fit in Uptown New Orleans

Staying active and keeping fit could be a challenge while you’re traveling, especially in a city that loves to eat, drink and party. Whether you’re here on business or for pleasure, however, there are a few great options near the hotel to help you stay in shape.

If you need a yoga fix, both Wild Lotus Yoga (4842 Perrier St.) and Live Oak Yoga (6113 Magazine St.) are not far from the hotel. Interested in finding a gym? Uptown Fitness (4834 Pitt St.) and Anytime Fitness (4600 Freret St.) are good options (Anytime Fitness is a five-minute walk away from the hotel; ask the concierge for directions).

We’re a pet-friendly hotel, and you and your dog will enjoy the urban oasis of the historic Audubon Park (6500 Magazine St.). It has a 1.8-mile jogging path, tennis courts, riding stables, soccer fields, plus an area behind the Audubon Zoo and along the Mississippi River called The Fly that is great for walking.

For biking, whether you’d prefer to strike out on your own or be guided in a group, download the city bike map to help you navigate. The bike-sharing system called Blue Bikes has a few hubs in the area (find them on the map on the company website). For bike rentals Uptown, try Mike the Bike Guy (4411 Magazine St.), within cycling distance to Audubon Park, St. Charles Avenue, and the campuses of Tulane and Loyola universities. Arts District Bikes (1121 Margaret Pl.) offers night rides (rentals and guided).

You can also always go for a leisurely swim in our sparkling pool!
