Fitness at the Hay-Adams
Active guests will be happy to see a pair of bikes leaning invitingly beside the front door, part of a fleet available to guests for a spin around the blessedly flat city. The doormen will issue you a helmet, a bike lock, and a map to the more than 70 miles of bike lanes in Washington D.C. (One easy loop heads around the Tidal Basin with stops at the three extraordinary monuments along its banks: the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial.) For guests interested in a little more cardio work, a pocket-sized running map in the guest rooms suggests a 3.5-mile loop around the National Mall that tempts even the laziest to trot the path and see the sites along the way.
