The hotel is also bringing back its popular Running with the Manager program, where a member of the hotel team will lead guests on a three- to four-mile job around Lake Michigan. The runs begin June 7 and happen Tuesdays as 6:15 a.m.
If you want another hotel-organized outing, try the Hotel Monaco Chicago's Glide with the GM program. Admittedly, we don’t think you'll burn many calories on this twice-a-week manager-led tour, since you'll be on a Segway. But c'mon, you'll ride a Segway and get to do your best Job from Arrested Development impression. The tours cost $59, but guests receive a $10 discount.
To get your heart rate up a little more, the Hotel Monaco offers one heck of incentive: money. Ask for a pedometer at the front desk, use it to record you hoofing it at least 10,000 steps—the daily amount recommended by the American Heart Association—and you will snag a $25 walking credit. You can use the credit toward your room for those accommodations that start at $159 a night or use it in the restaurant carbo-loading.
