Since taking a dip with Andy Warhol is impossible (at least without being terrifying), SIXTY LES offers the next best thing. The bottom of the hotel’s third-floor pool is covered with a filmstrip-style painting of the artist’s face. Here you can sit on plush seating and nibble (or gobble) small plates by Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya as you gaze into the waters. The 1,200 square feet cement pond has a strict guests only rule, but outsiders can access the pool parties during the summer. Plus, there’s always the open-to-all beer garden and a Blue Ribbon Sushi just one floor down.
The best NYC hotels with pools have solved a very simple equation: best rooftop bars + best swimming pools = an extremely blissful stay. Yeah, this is how to do hotel stays - if only we could do this every day. And since scoring water-filled real estate in NYC is no easy feat, let’s just say certain spots have really elevated their game. Plus, there's nothing better than making those sweltering hot summer temperatures a bit more bearable than a nice cool dip in a rooftop pool, plus a few cocktails on the side wouldn't hurt.
We're gonna give you our list of the best NYC hotels that have amazing pools, enabling you to dive right into jaw-dropping skyline views and poolside summer drinks at the swankiest hotel pools in the city, all with an excellent view, of course. We're talking a 75-foot lap pool, a multi-level sundeck, top dog DJ bookings and even retractable glass roofs. Spoiler alert: these are great pretty much all year round, so whatever the month, head to these NYC hotels to make a splash. Every day's a vacay.
