The GymFactor

Our state-of-the-art Gym advisor tool

The purpose of building the GymFactor label was to enable gym bunnies and fitness freaks who love or have to travel but are constantly in the dilemma of where to stay and how not to let their workout routine be affected while on a trip. Most people rely on user reviews on sites like Google or Tripadvisor to decide where to stay and what to do on a vacation or business trip. However, studies demonstrated that up to 20 percent of all reviews on platforms like Booking.com and Tripadvisor are phony or bought. Additionally, trawling through hundreds of crowdsourced reviews is taxing as fitness insights are difficult to find. People want short, digestible summaries to decide whether somewhere is suitable for them quickly.The GymFactor label solves this problem by pointing out the top hotels with gyms in the vicinity of your travel destination.

How does the GymFactor work?

The HotelGyms.com approach cuts through the noise of user reviews using the GymFactor. Just as with hotel stars, GymFactor will make it easy for our users to distinguish a good option from a bad one. We use machine learning capabilities to analyze images and reviews to reveal the best-kept secrets regarding hotel gyms. In addition, technology such as Artificial Intelligence helps us to improve low-quality pictures to help our users get the best insight into what to expect.
Some of the leading parameters that affect the GymFactor label are:

The GymFactor is a label based on an algorithm developed by HotelGyms.com to benchmark the different types of hotel gyms. People who post reviews are often those who have had a very positive or negative experience they want to share with the broader internet. Therefore, our approach was designed to focus on the facts from different sources to truly help fitness enthusiasts find their preferred fitness environment on their next hotel gym visit.Still not sure?

The GymFactor Score

Most people have no idea how one facility compares to another as they often stay at one hotel in each place they visit. Additionally, every person has different expectations of what a gym offers for a good workout. That is why the GymFactor uses a scale from poor to perfect.
