What to do on the road

well i am about to start travelling quite a bit for work again. We always stay in nice hotels and they usually have a decent fitness center, at least treadmills etc. but rarely have free weights etc. Sometimes there is a universal machine, but it seems they are always broken.

Anyways, what are some good exercises I can do in my room? I do lunges, ab work and even some pilate stuff sometimes, but what else? I want to keep up my schedule while travelling, it is hard, but i have done it so far. It's hard getting up early and running before spending all day long managing and standing a tradeshow, but oh well.

Run 5x a week, minimum of 10 miles a week
Walk 5x a week, minimum of 12 miles a week
Lift 4x a week (shoulders/legs, back/bi, chest/tri)
pilates 2x a week

You can do pushups flat on the ground and with your feet in a chair for a couple different angles on the chest. Dips between the bed and a chair are good for tris and lower chest. I've even done pushups against the wall to hit shoulders, but that does take a decent amount of streght (and balance) to pull off.

In the morning I do 2 sets of 15 slow (3 count up, 3 down) pushups with my feet on the edge of the bed and my hands on the ground.
