Hilton’s Yoga Rooms

As a follow-up to Taking Yoga on the Road, I came across some news about Hilton Hotels testing out fitness rooms that are outfitted for either cardio or yoga. Here’s the description of a Yoga Room.

The Yoga Room has a designated area to practice yoga. It has specialty flooring, a full-length mirror to let you check your poses, and yoga accessories including a Jala mat, cork bricks, a stretch strap, foam roller, and stability ball. All the mats are sanitized daily, but guests also get their own cleaning spray. The fridge contains complimentary coconut water.

It’s capitalizing on the trend of travelers wanting to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but these rooms come at a price.

Guests will have to pay a premium to stay in the fitness rooms—about $30 more. The gym, meanwhile, is free for guests.

Personally, $30 is way too much for having a borrowed yoga mat and props in a room and some free coconut water in the fridge. And as I mentioned previously, some hotels offer the use of equipment without charge as an included amenity. I think I’ll keep my method of bringing my own yoga towel and clearing some space without the extra cost.

    Thanks for sharing. I stay at Hilton when I travels and will need to start looking out for this. It is heard to find early morning classes when I am on the road.c this could be an alternative, but I agree a bit pricey.

      it looks like only the mclean, virginia and san francisco union square hiltons have a yoga room. if you happen to stay in either of those hotels and can get a yoga room, let us know how it was. i’m interested to know if it’s really worth the extra money.
