The gym at The Beverly Hills Hotel is pretty basic, but it has all the amenities and equipment you need to get in a solid workout. Located on the promenade level, the gym is open 24 hours a day and is accessible with your room key. It’s not huge, but the walls are lined with mirrors so you won’t feel cramped. The gym isn’t staffed, but you can talk to the concierge about arranging personal training sessions.
If cardio’s your thing, head to the state-of-the-art Matrix machines, which include treadmills, bikes, an elliptical and a StairMaster. If you’re working on strength training, there’s chest, shoulder and leg-press machines as well as dumbbells and free weights. Mats are provided if you need to stretch. There’s no locker room, so come dressed to work out. You won’t need to bring much; the gym provides everything you’ll need, including headphones, bottled water, towels, fresh fruit and reading material.
For those of you who prefer to exercise in the great outdoors, talk to the concierge about reserving one of the two outdoor tennis courts, which are well-lit so you can play a round even at night. Private lessons and partner matching are available. If you just want to go for a run outside, pick up a jogging map from the concierge. The hotel’s suggested route traverses a scenic 2.5-mile route down Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica Boulevard and Beverly Drive, though you can extend that by hopping on a running path off the boulevard.
