The gym at L’hotel élan is a bit unconventional, but offers professional grade cardio and low-impact equipment for a vigorous workout. The fitness area shares an open space with a café-like area on the 35th floor, across from reception. There are three tables with chairs, as well as an amenities counter offering complimentary coffee, tea, sodas, fruit and nut/cracker mixes. Two treadmills, one elliptical machine and an exercise bike are lined up a few feet away, facing floor-to-ceiling windows that offer an excellent view of the surrounding neighborhood and harbor. There is also low-impact equipment like yoga balls medicine balls and stretching mats, as well as a full set of free weights and a wooden dummy for martial arts exercises. Guests might feel self-conscious exercising in front of others socializing at the tables, but can refresh after their workout in privacy in the locker rooms.
