You’re in a strange city, you want to go for a run but preferably without getting slammed by a tram or smothered by exhaust fumes. Who do you turn to? Well, at select Westin Hotels, you turn to the Running Concierge.

As part of the Westin Workout program you can order up a guided jog through the city, so you can be shown all the best parks, alleyways and views to run past. Westin Sydney is also in the process of developing hireable podcasts for your iPod. Choose from either a 6km or 8km jogging or walking route through Sydney, down to Circular Quay, through the Botanical Gardens, Lady Macquarie’s Chair and past the Art Gallery of NSW, then back through the Domain. Directions, commentary, points of interest, the lot. Then, when you get back, the concierge will be waiting with a fresh towel and a cool bottle of water.
