If your favorite part of a five-star hotel is swimming, you’re in luck
Beverly Hilton has an aura of mystique and beauty
After a very cold winter, LA is back to its usual weather: nice and sunny. If you haven’t been blessed with a pool to yourself, we have good news – LA has a zillion hotels, and they all have pools. Of course, many resorts are exclusive to guests, but many have opened their resorts to the Resort Pass, meaning a day at the top pool is just a reservation away.
Here you’ll find the best settings – and the best ads – to have on the platform. Below, a list of the best pools of all time, all available through one handy app.
Good for: Introducing out-of-towners to life on the Sunset Strip
Price: $20 day pass, $300 cabana
Vibe: As the first hotel built on the Sunset Strip, the Andaz is tied to the rock and roll history of the 60s, making it the perfect destination for guests who want a taste of Hollywood. In addition to a heated rooftop pool with miles of views, the hotel also offers bar services and a cool DJ. The Andaz is a good example of how reading the fine print on this list can help you get the best bang for your buck: a weekday cabana runs $350 for six people, cutting the per-person rate to less than $60 in cozy WeHo. pool day.
Good for: Pretending to be an A-lister
Price: $65 day pass, $400 cabana
Vibe: Many have tried to copy this hotel, but no one has actually he won. Like our home in Hollywood events like the Golden Globes, there is an aura of mystique and glamor at the Beverly Hilton that never fades – and the pool is no different. It also has its own name, The Aqua Star Pool, and is considered the largest pool in Beverly Hills. Because of the celeb factor, the day pass is cheaper, but this one comes with parking.
Good for: Westsiders looking to escape the tourist crush of Santa Monica
Price: $40 day pass, $80 day bed, $400 cabana
Vibe: We recommended this rooftop pool last summer, and it made the cut again this year. That’s because its central location in Culver City is convenient and far from the more tourist-rich areas of the Westside (Santa Monica Pier, anyone?). With two adults, Shay’s daybed is one of the best options on either side of town, which runs $40 per person. Grab food and drinks poolside from the Canopy Club, or grab a few Culver City favorites on the way back home, like the hotel’s downstairs restaurant, Etta.
Good for: Cheap swimming in Hollywood
Price: $25 a day to go
Vibe: For locals, proximity, convenience and value win. Enter the Eastsiders’ arch nemesis, The Godfrey, with its rooftop heated pool. Located on the edge of East Hollywood, this affordable, high-end rooftop pool maintains Hollywood glamour, along with food and drink from I|O Rooftop. A day pass here is only $25 and gives you access to the hotel’s gym if you want to work out before or swim afterwards.
In the center of the city L.A
Good for: Pool day and spa day
Price: $100 day pass, $500 cabana, $150 spa pass
Vibe: As one of the most beautiful hotels to join the crowded DTLA hotel scene, the Conrad has a huge, 16,000-square-foot floating rooftop that makes the price of admission worth it. Another way to change the price is too high? Go to the gym, which comes with all the same amenities as a pool, including access to a sauna, relaxation area, locker room, swimming pool and fitness center. The treatments are sold separately, of course, but the indoor spa accessories are an addition to the beautiful deck.
Good for: Distance from the center of Santa Monica
Price: $40 a day to go
Vibe: You’ll see this hotel on countless “Best in LA” lists because it’s one of the best hotels in the entire city. As for the heated pool, a day pass for $40 is really a steal. Grab a bite to eat from Fig or Dogtown Coffee, and see if you can’t see the ocean, passing slowly, as you turn on the lights. Unlike traditional pools, this one has a hot tub, so you can switch between the two options.
