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.
Our guests have the opportunity to use the 24/7 Anytime Fitness center (4600 Freret St.) free of charge (it’s a five-minute walk from the hotel). Please stop by the front desk to check out a key.
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 a 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.
