Perched near the edge of Lower Manhattan, The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park, features a sprawling waterfront fitness room—but guests can also take to the nearby parks for exercise. Working with local experts, the hotel can organize guided bike and running tours of Lower Manhattan. Bike and Roll provides the cycles and well-marked routes for invigorating jaunts. Alternately, running instructors offer historical tours of the area for guests who prefer to pound the pavement.
