Hyatt Regency Minneapolis has the largest hotel fitness center I have ever seen inside a hotel. After a $1.5 million renovation, the 32,000 square feet athletic club is the jewel of the hotel.
Check out these workout spaces.
Hyatt Stay Fit.
Weights, balls and mats.
Stationary bikes and treadmills.
Opposite angle of the Stay Fit exercise machine room.
Boxing bag room.
Last Friday and Saturday there were dozens of teenage competitors in the Hyatt hotel and on the streets of Minneapolis for the Minnesota State High School League Dance Team Tournament.
Weight rooms. The far room was the main weight room, but it was in use and I did not get a better photo.
And then to finish off the Stay Fit rooms is the hoops room.
Full-size basketball court.
The indoor pool is an odd set-up with the swimming pool elevated and three floors of rooms with patios and balconies adjacent to the pool area.
Indoor pool on elevated deck. No hot tub though.
Poolside rooms with direct access to the 6th floor fitness rooms without taking an elevator in the hotel. These rooms might be the right fit for some guests who stay at the 24 floor Hyatt Regency Minneapolis.
I have been at hotels and resorts with extensive outdoor facilities like tennis courts, basketball courts and more. These are the most extensive facilities I have seen indoors in a city business hotel.
