Case Study : Boston Harbor Hotel

The Spa at Rowes Wharf, located within the confines of the Boston Harbor Hotel, is a Forbes Travel Five Star Rated property. Most recently, it has been ranked as one of Best Hotels in the USA by US News and World Reports 2012.

Situated on one of the oldest wharfs in the nation, the hotel brings together the waterfront’s colonial past and its vibrant present. Built on the site of a 17th century battery, The Boston Harbor Hotel is today the anchor of quaint shops and stunning restaurants that compose the revitalized Rowes Wharf.

Project Summary

In 2012, the hotel engaged Advantage Fitness Products to both redesign and oversee the addition of new fitness center equipment. The facility’s previous equipment was dated, and lacked a sufficient strength training offering. Ultimately the goal was to bring the fitness amenity in line with the quality and offering of the Spa itself.

Other hotels in the area had more recently updated their fitness offering, and The Boston Harbor Hotel is anything others than a me-too establishment. Therefore, it was critical to refresh the space with both flow and function in a way that would have a significant impact on the guest experience. Creating more open space for floor exercise, as well as to add technology that would set the offering apart were key. The recommended selection of TechnoGym equipment was incorporated to provide European design flair, while also achieving a unique exercise offering including the new Top ergo, and a complete circuit of Kinesis Stations.

Additionally, complimentary TechnoGym single station Element line units and a Dual Adjustable Pulley (Functional Trainer) were also incorporated to round out the now complete and balanced strength training offering.


The property is unique in the sense that it caters to hotel guests, local spa visitors, and a general membership base for the fitness center itself. The response for these important clients has been overwhelmingly positive. The staff also received detailed training on the use and care of their new facility equipment. A stay at the Boston Harbor Hotel today is sure to include a great complement of wellness for all of its guests.
