Ritz-Carlton: The Ritz-Carlton does not have an on-site fitness center, but for $15 a day guests have access to Sports Club/LA Boston, a 114,000 square-foot gym that has squash courts, an Olympic pool, fitness classes, and its own spa and salon. The club is easily accessible from the same elevator that takes guests to their rooms, and its front door is visible from the hotel entrance. If you are truly concerned about fitness (as the Yankees should be), you wont mind that the gym is technically "not on-site." However, the spa doesn't hold a candle to that at The Waldorf.

Waldorf: The fifth-floor gym costs $15 a day to use and is rather small, but has all new cardio and weight equipment. But $15 seems steep for a gym this basic. However, the Waldorf's 14,000 square-foot Guerlain Spa is one of the nicest (and most expensive) in the whole city. It's the perfect place for David Ortiz to get a nice massage after a night of striking out.

Winner: TIE!
