Go Rowing with an Olympic Athlete at The Four Seasons Boston
Last week it was announced that Boston is on the short list of American cities being considered for the US bid to host the 2024 Olympics. The news has some people pumped, a lot of other people preemptively horrified at the prospect.
But here’s an Olympics-related invitation we can all agree on: “Row Like a Pro” at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston. Fitness-related hotel packages are very on-trend lately; check out this recently announced Running Camp in Jackson Hole. And as befitting a storied, tony brand, the Four Seasons is pulling in the crème de la crème of athletes for this one.
Available only on September 7, 13, 21 and 28, 2014, the “Row” package lets guests take a private two-hour row with one of several Olympic champs, including 2012 gold medalist Esther Lofgren. You’ll hit the Charles River, passing picturesque Boston landmarks before ending at the finish line of Head of the Charles, America’s largest regatta, held every October.
A professional photographer will document the entire experience — so you can sure your one-on-one time by updating your Facebook photo. (We’re one ahead of you, right?) After the row you and your new BFF will share a riverside gourmet lunch for small talk, and you’ll even get “custom-created rowing attire” from Four Seasons and Community Rowing Inc., Boston’s first public rowing club and one of the largest in the United States.
Starting rates for the package are still TBD but we suspect you might need to pawn some gold medals to swing it. That said, it really is a once in a lifetime experience. Even the Olympics come every four years. Call the Four Seasons Boston at 617-338-4400 to book. UPDATE: The package start at $6,250.
