Hotels With Outdoor Pool and Lounge Area

You don’t have to travel far and wide to soak up the sun. Many hotels have beautiful outdoor pools with lounge areas where you can relax and recharge during your next vacation.

Soak up the rays at this Brooklyn hotel’s Bali-inspired pool. Lounge on cushy striped chairs and enjoy a boozy ice pop in between dips in the pool.

1. Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

Unlike its Manhattan iteration, this 1 Hotel is on the water with stunning views of the East River and Brooklyn Bridge. The hotel’s green mission is apparent throughout, from the guest room signage that playfully encourages towel reuse to the aesthetically-pleasing wooden salt timer in the shower.

The hotel’s rooftop has become one of the area’s newest day life hotspots since opening in 2017. It offers a small lounge pool (open during summer), full-service bar, and fire pits where locals and visitors alike can sip craft cocktails and take in the stunning view.

2. Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC

The 187-room Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC was one of the first hotels to help galvanize the Meatpacking District into what it is today. After a top-to-bottom renovation, it now balances a grown-up (though still sexy) vibe with a fresh take on urban luxury and proximity to coveted neighborhood attractions like the High Line and Sex and the City-filmed bistros.

Guests can enjoy the hotel’s lauded rooftop pool or sip cocktails in the lounge with sweeping views of downtown. Guest rooms have a chic and sleek appeal with atmospheric ombre wallpapers, backlit walnut headboards and stylish bathrooms with subway-tiled showers.

There’s also a new basement-level bowling and karaoke bar opening in 2022 as well as a restaurant pop-up called Saishin by Kissaki, known for their sushi bars around the country.

3. Sixty Lower East Side

One of the new breed of luxury hotels that are finding their niche in the formerly gritty and now trendy Lower East Side. SIXTY LES aims to capitalize on the local buzz with its seasonal rooftop pool, beer garden and acclaimed Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya, plus the new Make Believe bar.

The hotel’s 136 air-conditioned guestrooms offer iPod docking stations and minibars. Beds are draped with Egyptian cotton sheets and premium bedding. LCD televisions come with premium cable channels and pay movies. Bathrooms include showers with rainfall showerheads, complimentary toiletries and hair dryers. Other standard amenities include desks and safes.

4. CODA Hotel Brooklyn

Located in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, this trendy boutique hotel is the hippest spot for locals and visitors to cool off. Guests can lounge by the seasonal outdoor pool and enjoy drinks and food from the rooftop bar.

This modern hotel offers 64 rooms that are as unique as they are swanky. They include walk-in showers with designer bath products by APOTHIA, posh peshtemal robes and snappy wifi. Some rooms have a balcony while others overlook McCarren Park. Those who want to splurge can choose a 1,500 sq. ft light-filled suite with two bathrooms, living and dining space, kitchenette and two private outdoor patios.

CODA was created by Malibu-slash-Bali-based Coda Studio, whose designers have decades of experience designing homes and hotels. It is changing the face of Brooklyn’s hotel landscape and ushering in a new era of hospitality.

5. Virgin Hotels New York City

Designed to play on Virgin’s rock-and-roll personality, this hotel is a fun and energetic property in the heart of Manhattan in the oh-so-trendy NoMad neighborhood. There’s plenty of eye-catching red throughout, and the 460 Chambers, Suites and Penthouses offer stunning views of Lower Manhattan and the Empire State Building.

The third floor is the social hub called Everdene, a 4,000-square-foot dining and drinking destination that hosts events and live performances. Rooms are less flamboyant than the public spaces, with soft colors and sliding doors between the sleeping area and bathroom.

The hotel has a rooftop oasis for sun-soaked lounging and refreshing cocktails, plus sweeping cityscapes. It’s only open to hotel guests, and the cabanas can be booked for a day or overnight. Guests can also book spa services and workouts here.

6. The Ritz-Carlton New York

The Ritz-Carlton brand sets the gold standard in luxury hospitality, and each hotel tells a unique story in desirable destinations. From a buzzy city center location to a tucked-away resort, the brand has perfected service and created experiences that linger long after departure.
