Guess where this hotel is located? You got it: it's within steps of London's famed Tower Bridge (and the London Bridge) and is a fantastic choice for athletic-minded travelers. The hotel maintains a modern flair from the lobby to the rooms. All guest quarters are handsomely designed with large windows, 25-inch plasma televisions, and new bedding. Wireless internet is available throughout the property. Room service is also offered, but for grocery items and prepared food, keep in mind that Marks and Spencer is just outside the hotel's front door.
Hilton provides a choice for your workout. On-site, a small but useful complimentary gym is available 24/7. Top rated cardio machines are "in the house" including Precor brand ellipticals, treads and a bike. The strength options are a little "light" so hard core weight buffs, lap swimmers and those desiring a more traditional sweat experience should choose the alternative: thirtysevendegrees, a full-service health club located just beyond the hotel's back door. Admission is limited to guests of the Hilton Tower Bridge and members of the club. 10 British Pounds will get you inside.
Runners should also consider an outdoor route along the Thames in addition to the treadmills inside Hilton's gym and those at the club.
Lap swimmers take note, thirtysevendegrees sports a 20-meter pool. Serious lappers may enjoy the experience at London Fields Lido. It's a bit of a trek (about 3 miles north), but 50 meters and 8-lanes await.
Nearest Tube stop: London Bridge (approx. 3 blocks).
