Sick and tired of the winter weather? Fear not, a poolside margarita is only a few months away. Take a New York minute and check out Luxury Attaché’s top 5 hotel pools to get in the summer swing of things.
1 Trump SoHo
During the summer months the 6,000 square feet of lounge space at the Trump SoHo hosts pool and bar patrons alike. Play a game of bocce or sit back and relax in a private cabana as the waterfall cascades into the 7th floor spa deck pool. Come night fall the deck opens up to the public for drinks at the Bar d’Eau.
246 Spring Street at Varick Street
2 Hôtel Americano
Located on the rooftop of The Hôtel Americano, La Piscine offers views of Manhattan and a swanky atmosphere for hotel guests. Executive Chef Joseph Buenconsejo offers a lunch menu at the rooftop grill along with an impressive list of summer cocktails.
518 West 27th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues
3 The James New York
The James Hotel in SoHo offers guests a private lounge complete with pool, outdoor showers and access to The JIMMY bar. The chic retreat in the city is also known as a summer time hotspot; hotel guests are granted access to The JIMMY until 9pm at which point it opens to the public.
27 Grand Street at 6th Avenue
4 Le Parker Meridien
It’s safe to say at 42 stories high the pool at Le Parker Meridien has amazing city views and sun access. Though the pool is technically indoors, there’s no lack of lounging areas. Catch some rays on the grass-lined decks, work up an appetite doing laps in the Olympic size pool, then head down to Burger Joint to refuel.
119 West 56th Street, between Avenue of the Americas and 7th Avenue
5 The Mandarin Oriental
Located on the 35th floor, the lengthy 75 feet long pool is part of the luxurious spa experience at the Mandarin Oriental hotel. Guests can enjoy the lap pool and the views of the Hudson River as well as a vast array of services on the wellness menu, including body scrubs, facials and a myriad of massage options.
80 Columbus Circle at West 60th Street
