The Best U.S. Hotels for Runners

These spots are so close to scenic routes, it's easy to hit the ground running.

Even the nicest hotel gym is no match for working out while you take in the sights. But the upside of running when you’re on the road—a change of scenery—can also be a hurdle. How do you know where to go? And what if the loop that looked so great on Google Maps actually cuts through a construction zone or is covered in brambles?

These seven hotels are all so close to scenic running routes, you can be warming up with the locals before your GPS gets its location. Plus, each property offers running-specific perks that make squeezing in a speed session or long, slow distance almost painless.
