The technicians at World's Best Detailing Center stand at the ready seven days a week to purify dirty cars with an arsenal of cleaners and shampoos. For cars that need a quick bath before a hot date with a radar gun, the repertoire of hand washes starts out at a basic towel-dry and ramps up to lavish autos with such treats as dash detailing, hand waxing, and complimentary oil tastings. Staffers also tackle larger projects with extensive interior and exterior detailing packages. On the inside, seats bask in a deep shampoo and leather and vinyl surfaces are left shiny and conditioned. Meanwhile, technicians use high-speed buffers to coax a brilliant shine from exterior paint, detail the chrome by hand, and delve into the engine compartment to evict excess grease.

The trainers behind Look Good Naked aim to get people comfortable in their skin. They have a slew of shared resources, such as nutritional guides, progressive measurements, and a weekly newsletter filled with exercising facts, meal ideas, ongoing coaching and support, and testimonials from clients. All these augment the core of the operation—the 12-week boot camps where both trainers and fellow students repurpose the benches, jungle gyms, and stairways of parks and public spaces during four, hour-long sessions each week. The sessions teach guests a slew of functional training maneuvers that require little or no equipment, helping them not only to slim down, but build up a skill set they can carry with them as they leave the camps.

But it’s still far enough away from the busy downtown areas that it feels quiet and tucked away. The hotel is also close to the region’s many lakes and waterways, where you can swim, boat, and rehydrate an old Christmas tree in the summer and go ice-fishing in the winter.
After a peaceful night in the room—each of which is equipped with free WiFi and HBO—you can enjoy a free continental breakfast, which features waffles, cereal, and eggs. There’s also a 24-hour fitness facility with cardio and weight-lifting equipment and a burbling hot tub.
