These Peloton-Friendly Hotels Will Help You Crush Your Milestone On Vacation
Whether it's for work or play, a hotel stay is normally an exciting opportunity to escape everyday reality for a bit. But if you're a diehard Peloton fan, being separated from your favorite machine or instructor sounds more like a bummer than a holiday. Fear not, fitness friends — no matter where you go in the world, there's a solid chance a Peloton could be close by.
All you need to do is head to the Peloton Hotel Finder, a cool feature on Peloton's website that's easily overlooked. The interactive tool lets you search for hotels that house a Peloton bike(s) in their fitness centers or even in their rooms. You can search for an address to find the closest Peloton-friendly hotel to your destination and you can choose filters such as "bike weights," "dual-sided SPD pedals" or "LOOK/delta pedals" to ensure you'll come prepared. Peloton bikes come out of the box with delta cleat-compatable pedals, not for SPD cleats. (Read more about what that lingo means and why it matters here.) It's possible to swap these for SPD-compatible pedals — hence this option at some hotels.
And while you can find plenty of Peloton-clad destinations in major American cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York, you can also discover hotels with Peloton machines throughout Canada, England, and Germany. Most of these properties will allow you to log in to the Peloton Bike with your own credentials (or as a guest if you're not yet a Peloton member) but call ahead to confirm before you pack your bags.
It would be tough to give a proper rundown of the dozens (and counting) of hotels throughout the world that boast Peloton equipment among their amenities, but here are a few of the truly unique destinations that are so special, you might just be tempted to plan your whole trip around staying (and running, spinning, and lifting) there.

Some of the Best Peloton Hotel Finder Properties
TWA Hotel, Queens, New York
If you're traveling through New York, you might want to consider spending an extended layover at the TWA Hotel in Jamaica, Queens, which is a restored and reimagined version of the landmark 1962 TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Sure, airport hotels aren't exactly known for their luxe accommodations, but this property is a notable exception. It has an unreal fitness center that includes 14 Peloton bikes, the most you'll find in one space outside of Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood (where you'll find Peloton's flagship location with 60 bikes), according to the hotel's website. The 10,000 square-foot space is the world's biggest hotel gym, according to the hotel's site, and is open 24/7 so you won't have to miss your standing date with Cody Rigsby, no matter what time you check in.
The Standard, London, UK
The Standard's first hotel outside of America is a super futuristic-looking site in the former Camden Town Hall Annex of the bustling King's Cross neighborhood. Many of the rooms are on the small side (the "Cosy Core" is just 205-270 square feet) but are fully equipped with fancy amenities. If you stay in a Junior Suite or above, you have the option to have a Peloton Bike brought to your room on request, according to the travel club Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Fairmont Chateau Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Fairmont Chateau Whistler is a must for mountain lovers, and guests get access to ski, bike, and golf services. But if you're stuck inside for any reason, you can squeeze in a sweat session with Robin Arzón and still take in the lush greenery surrounding the windowed fitness center.

Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa, Maui, Hawaii
Chances are you don't need a reason to book a trip to this tropical paradise. But know that if you spend your Hawaiian vacation at the Hyatt Regency in Maui, you can pedal on any of the oceanside property's four Peloton bikes while overlooking the tropical landscape. Of course, rides back home will never be the same. (Related: The Best Vacation Spots for Couples In the U.S.)
Miraval, Tucson, Arizona
The Miraval brand of properties is pretty much synonymous with total travel-friendly wellness, so it should come as no surprise that the Arizona outpost includes a 24-hour fully-equipped fitness center that features a Peloton Bike. What makes this spot extra special is that you can include access to your usual Peloton workouts as part of a comprehensive, luxury wellness package that includes experiences in everything from yoga and Pilates to Ayurveda, astrology, music healing, and more.
Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa, Austin, Texas
Everything is bigger in Texas, including, apparently, fitness facilities. The Omni in Austin has a 33,000 square-foot state-of-the-art gym that includes three Peloton bikes (plus a ton of other fun stuff such as a running track, weight machines, boxing bags, and more). The 4,000-acre property is a special escape thanks to its secluded location within the Texas city, but you can still tune in to your favorite Kendall Toole therapy rides, even while unplugging from the rest of the world.
