Indoor pools are relatively rare around Los Angeles, where many of the best hotels with pools opt for outdoor facilities. But when the SoCal sun ducks behind a cloud (yes, it really does happen) or you just prefer to swim some peaceful laps without interrupting any raging pool parties, these hotels around the region will let you get your feet wet after a day of checking out some great L.A. attractions.
Hotels with indoor pools
Sharing a building with the historic Beaux Arts style Los Angeles Athletic Club, guests of the Hotel at the Los Angeles Athletic Club are granted access to the fitness center and indoor pool at LAAC. The indoor pool was opened with fanfare in 1912 and served as a training center for the era's Olympians. Keen observers may also recognize this pool as the one where Kerry Washington swims her laps on Scandal.
Built in 1923, the Biltmore retains the Italian-Spanish renaissance elegance that once enticed such dignitaries as Winston Churchill and JFK. The ground level is striking, one gorgeous room after another peeling off the exquisite lobby. Their indoor pool has an elegant vintage feel that reminds us of Hearst Castle.
The unexpectedly lush and stylish indoor pool and hot tub area on offer at this airport hotel is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that will give you a taste of that famous California sunshine, while still giving you the comfort of a roof over your head. If they let us, we would probably take home a full set of the cheery striped towels they have stacked up for pool swimmers.
The indoor pool at BLVD might not offer grand lap lanes, but it should still hit the spot for those looking to take a quick plunge after a day at Universial Studios, which is just a short walk down the block from the hotel. A fitness center and full-service spa round out the health and wellness amenities on offer.
Perfect if you're taking a jaunt down to Long Beach or flying out of the Long Beach Airport to which this hotel is adjacent, the Long Beach Marriott offers the best of both worlds with a large outdoor pool and deck for swimming and sun-worshipping and an indoor pool with a child-friendly focus.
This updated business hotel offers a large indoor pool with lounge chairs and comfortable surroundings for relaxing with a dip after a day of conference meetings or travelling to and from LAX. In addition to the pool, there is also a sizable indoor hot tub.
