 With a workout area three times as large as its meeting space, the 175-room Renaissance ClubSport Hotel and Fitness Resort in Walnut Creek, Calif., takes guest wellness to a higher level. The uber-club’s 12,000-square-foot facility (complimentary to guests) offers five exercise studios, a gymnasium, an aquatic center with three pools (including a 25-yard lap pool), racquetball and squash courts, and the all-important day-care center. After the workout, stop in at the full-service, 3,000-square-foot R Spa for a soothing body wrap or a new hairdo. (925) 938-8700;
