Spacious studios, the latest equipment, fresh health food, safe trails—the ammenities that fit-minded vacationers love most are usually things that hotels do the worst. Many places offer a comfy place to sleep but the "gym" is a walk-in closet with a dusty treadmill and one 5-pound dumbbell (not exactly a recipe for healthy travel). Cross those sub-par lodgings off your to-stay list and book a night or more at one of these eight perk-filled hotels!
