What’s better than a sandy, crowded beach? A pool. Whether you’re a down-to-earth sweaty Angeleno looking to take a dip or a tourist who still thinks Entourage is aspirational, there’s something for you on this map of 21 awesome hotel pools in Los Angeles, all listed from west to east.
This is LA, so some of the properties are exclusive, meaning you’ll have to book a (pricey) room in order to enjoy the sparkling aquatic splendor. Others are open to the public, but it’ll cost you. A precious few are totally free. Advice on how to get in is noted in each description.
Have fun, stay cool, and don’t forget to slather on that sunscreen.
