Jet-setters know this hotel gym is a veritable personal-care drive-through.. The Space The Hilton O'Hare--actually located on the airport grounds, specifically on the arcade level between Terminals Two and Three--boasts a health club as extensive and well-appointed as many other Chicago gyms. Neighborhood residents, disciplined hotel guests and anxious air travelers all appreciate this spot's amenities: long hours, reasonable usage-fees, gender-specific locker rooms and showers, free towel service and ample equipment. Crucially, walk-ins are indeed welcome. Multiple TVs numb the mind while the body's pushed.
The Services Hilton Athletic Club's wide array of workout options includes cardiovascular machines, stationary bikes, rowing simulators and weight machines. More lean than mean? Take a few strokes in the lap pool, or work up a sweat in the steam room or sauna. Massage therapists expertly perform deep tissue and Swedish massages in two sparse-but-comfortable treatment rooms; robes are provided. Get some pseudo-sun in the tanning bed for just a few extra bucks.
