Part of the glamour of Los Angeles is being able to lounge like the locals do. All the sunshine, tanning oil, and beautiful bodies you could want are about strutting their stuff on parade, so sitting out by the pool with a cold beverage in your hand, some soft music playing, and not a care in the world sounds like a pretty perfect vacation idea to me. If you share this sentiment, and want to know where the hottest Los Angeles Hotel Pools are, here are a couple that should make your list.
Loews Santa Monica. Literally just steps from the beach, this hotel pool has understated elegance, an Arabian-nights feel to it, and views of the Santa Monica Pier and stunning ocean views. Loews keeps things interesting with adult-only contests and parties, and when night falls and the winds pick up, blankets and fireplaces assure that you’re kept cozy while the festivities carry on.
The Mondrian is a Sunset Strip pool offering the ultimate in chic décor and panoramic Los Angeles views. Come nightfall, candlelight illuminates the minimalist designs and cocktails shared by lovers in the moonlight are par for the course.
For more of an Old Hollywood feel with a modern twist, head over to the rooftop pool at the Standard Downtown. This has been named by Travel + Leisure Magazine as one of the top 10 hotel swimming pools in the world for its hip, relaxing and funky vibe. Great views of downtown LA complement the summer setting, as do vibrating waterbeds and an ever-popular cocktail lounge.
There you have it – some of Los Angeles’s best hotel pools. Swimming is a great way to spend your time in LA, but don’t forget that there are tons of great outdoor activities in Los Angeles.
