Because The Bellevue is such a category stand-out and the Loews is an ideal lower-priced alternative, we debated the need for a runner-up. But everyone prefers options, right? So in the event the Bellevue and Loews are booked, and you have the bullion to bankroll a highbrow experience, The Logan (part of Hilton's Curio Collection) fits the bill. The hotel is also conveniently located 1 mile from the Convention Center.
The interdependent hotel goes for artsy with its high-style decor for ALL spaces. In fact, the hotel prides itself on its art collection. Just take a look at the photos. The rooftop bar is its own draw. There is a total of 391 guestrooms and suites and all accommodations come with WiFi (free for Hilton Honors, fee for others), and HDTV. Other appreciated Athletic-Minded Traveler amenities include Keurig coffee machines and mini refrigerators.
The equipment here is top of the line Precor and there are a number of treadmills, ellipticals, two cycles and a rowing machine. Additionally there are a small number of stack-loaded weight stations and dumbbells up to 50 lbs.
Swimmers will likely find the waterbox spatially challenged. At 15-yards, it may suffice for 1,000 yards or so, but a longer workout's flip-turning will induce dizziness. Remedy that dizziness with a trip to the full service spa!
Bottom line, this gym will work for many, and the hotel's fantastic service and plush rooms will certainly help leave you with a positive experience.
Joggers should consider a run via our recommended Fairmount Park route.
