Fit to Be [Kenmore] Square Package
Where: Hotel Commonwealth, 500 Commonwealth Ave., Boston
When: Available indefinitely
How much: Starting at $399 per night

One of the best things about Boston is that it’s a walking city. I mean, in what other major metropolitan city can you walk from its North End to its South End in an hour? (OK, we’re also a small city, but that is beside the point.)

A new package from the Hotel Commonwealth seeks to reward guests for strolling around this extremely walkable town. Called the “Fit to Be [Kenmore] Square Package,” it offers guests a Fitbit at the beginning of their stay. Then, depending on how many steps they rack up, they receive a discounted bill—10,000 steps knocks 10 percent off, 15,000 gets 15 percent off, and 20,000 gets 20 percent off. Fitness-loving guests will also receive healthy snacks and bottled water upon arrival, a “power breakfast” at Eastern Standard, and a $20 New Balance gift card.
