See the City
Explore the city on foot or by bike. Lace up and take a jog around the city, the perfect way to start your day and get your bearings! Not a runner rent a bike and explore, Vancouver has many bike rental shops or you can use Mobi, Vancouver’s bike share program. Take a walk, jog or cycle around the popular seawall in Stanley park.

The fitness centre offers a panoramic view of busy Granville Street and is fully equipped with integrated LCD screens, cardiovascular equipment, a full selection of free weights as well as other fitness essentials like fresh towels and in-room water fountains.
