Push Up to Push Down Your Room Rate At Affinia Dumont
Just the kind of place we fancy doing some push ups
There are two types of travelers: the ones who stick to routine while they’re away, hitting up the gym and eating the way they would at home, and the ones who let good intentions slide, fill up on burgers and hail a cab as exercise, because they’re on a jolly. Both, however, can benefit from a new deal that the fitness-freaky Affinia Dumont in New York is offering.
With the Push Up, Push Down Your Rate deal, you can save up to $40 on your stay by performing push ups at check in. Yes, push ups at check in. Remember to check out your modesty at the door.
The idea is simple: you book a room as normal, and, as you check in, staff will give you 30 seconds to perform as many push ups as you can (we’re not sure if there’ll be whistles and shouting, bootcamp style, but we’re crossing our fingers that there will). Each is worth a dollar, and they’ll accept a maximum of 40. The amount will then be deducted from your first night’s stay. Ta da! If you’re a lazy hotel guest, you can go and eat something greasy while feeling virtuous. If you’re an exerciser, it’ll act as a nice warm up.
Why are they doing this? Not that you should look a gift horse in the mouth, but February is National Heart Month. The deal lasts until March 31 and is valid Sunday through Friday. Also, you have to stay a minimum of two nights. Rates aren’t bad at the moment, though - $169 through February, rising to $199 through March 31.
