Almost 40 years ago, Rocky put Philadelphia as the mecca for all things boxing and the fitness training that comes with it. Now, Philly's Hotel Monaco wants to continue the boxer's fight with a little help from one of their own.
The hotel's newest fitness initiative, Training Tips with T, calls upon the property's doorman to offer up some workout tips for staying healthy while on the road. Not only is 'T' a welcoming smile when you first step foot through the doors, but he's also a certified personal trainer so we know there's some accuracy behind what he telling us to do.
This six-step, full-body workout allows guests to get their sweat on in the comfort of their hotel room with no equipment required. Since T and the gang know that travelers might be tight on time and still want a tight tummy, the workout takes just 10 minutes to complete. Then you're on your way to see the Liberty Bell.

Hotel guests who stay two nights at participating hotels this summer will get the third night free. The offer is good from now through September 6 but you must book by June 1. It also requires check-in either on Thurs, Friday or saturday but some hotels have it valid every day of the week like the Epic Hotel in Miami.
And speaking of last-minute Memorial Day getaways, we found rooms at the EPIC this weekend for for $272 a night but which works out to be about $182 a night with the third night free offer. Anyone want to go to Miami with us?
As far as other cities, New York was not listed but several hotels in San Fran, DC, Chicago and Seattle are participating. Just remember, you have to be a Kimpton InTouch member. Sign up here.
Until recently we thought hotel loyalty programs were for Account Executives rolling their business travel points into a family vacation at a bland resort every year or two. However, funny thing happened when we started investigating these programs -- we found some of them are downright useful if you know how to cut through the red tape. This series is meant as a jumping off point to full fledged discussions on each loyalty program we feature. So comment, contribute, question, and cajole here.
Today we move on to Kimpton Hotels, which is actually one of the few small boutique chains to offer a loyalty program. But because this chain is small compared to Marriott, Starwood, Hilton, etc, the rewards are strictly kept within Kimpton and there are no outside partners.
Some more Hotel WiFi news for you....
After yesterday's story on Kimpton hotels doing good, we asked if they could change their mind about the pay-for-WiFi policy.
Our prayers weren't quite answered but a hotel rep let us know that Kimpton does offer free WiFi in its two NYC properties--The Muse and 70 park avenue --for Kimpton InTouch Members, the hotel chain's reward program.
Joining InTouch doesn't require any fee and there is no minimum night stay required in order to keep membership status. So it's a little more involved than getting an access code from the front desk, but if you are really keen to save that $10.95 a day, here's your way out.
