A 'Jogging Corner' and Freebie Fitness Extras at a Funky Frankfurt Hotel Find
While more and more hotels realize that perhaps their guests prefer a fitness experience other than a musty gym, we see more and more yoga mats in closets and jogging maps on desks. Recently, during a stay at the Goldman 25Hours in Frankfurt, Germany, we checked in at reception next to this little "Jogging Corner" cart.
The Jogging Corner is all the basics you'd need to have an enjoyable run, while traveling light. That means they provide the water bottles, the small sweat towels, wristlet keychains or branded sweatbands, all complimentary to guests.
We went for the sweatbands, since we quickly figured out that these serve more than the function of storing the tiny specially made jogging map of the area; we wore the sweatband and stored our bus and tram coins in it. Perfect! No fumbling in a wallet while trying to board public transportation.
Granted we're big fans of the 25Hours hotel brand, but extras like these don't necessarily mean it's some 5-star, $400+ hotel. On the contrary; sure it's plenty star-rated, but we paid only $90 as a standard nightly rate at the 25Hours Goldman in Frankfurt. The Goldman is funky in a good way, too; it's a member of the Design Hotels collection and each room sports a unique theme with distinctive details (like ours, which had a diploma from a Polytechnic University on the wall).
Next week we'll take you inside our room, and the rest of this lovely little property.
