Indoor, Outdoor, Incredible Views, Cocktails, Lounge Decks

New York City hotels with pools are pretty rare, and a special treat for any local or visitor. Poolside at a hotel will likely conjure the image of a resort, beach balls being thrown and kids playing…but NOT in NYC!

Our hotel pools are mostly adult party zones with skyline views, cocktails, private cabanas and summer long pool parties, depending on the day of the week. We do have a few pools that are family-friendly, and/or designed for your exercise laps, so keep reading to learn more about which NYC hotel pool is right for you and your family.

For locals looking for a staycation, many of the hotels offer pool and spa day passes, so you can "escape" the city for a day while you relax and recharge.
