Despite its atrium-like lobby with vaulted ceilings and palm trees, the Marriott-brand Renaissance ClubSport is far from a traditional hotel. The property caters to fitness-minded travelers with a 13,600-square-foot gym, which includes more than 90 cardio machines, extensive weight-training equipment, and a staff of certified personal trainers. The fitness center also hosts 120-plus group classes each week, ranging from cardio box to yoga and Pilates. Additional amenities include three pools; a full-service spa; and a restaurant serving healthy California cuisine. For post-workout relaxation, the 175 guest rooms contain oversize spa-style tubs and free bottled water.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
