I stayed at the Equinox Hotel, New York City's premiere spot for fitness-obsessed travelers. Take a look inside my swanky, wellness-focused room.

  • I recently spent a night at the Equinox Hotel in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards neighborhood.
  • Equinox is primarily known for its ultra-luxe, high-cost fitness clubs. Its hotel opened in 2019.
  • With a spa, gym, and wellness-focused rooms, Equinox Hotel is a haven for ambitious travelers.

Since moving to New York City, I’ve looked at Equinox with a sense of longing.

The chain of fitness clubs is one of the nicest in the city, where memberships cost hundreds of dollars — a stark comparison to the $20 I pay for a gym in Brooklyn. With high-end amenities and locations around the city, Equinox is a place for highly ambitious, fitness-focused people to see and be seen.

The same goes for its hotel.

The Equinox Hotel, opened in 2019, has been dubbed the “fittest hotel on Earth,” and was chosen this year as one of the best hotels in the world. Earlier this month, I got to check it out for myself.

I stayed in one of the hotel’s “Deluxe City View Guest Rooms,” which starts at around $995 per night. Business Insider paid a press rate of $495 for this stay.
