When I’m looking for a hotel, I always make sure it’s got a good pool and one Florida swimming spot has made a list of the Best Hotel Pools in America.
There’s nothing like a lazy day at a hotel pool while on vacation. Or spending a day adventuring and coming back and relaxing poolside. Especially a waterfront destination like Miami, Clearwater Beach, St. Pete or Sarasota. Feeling that ocean breeze while servers bring you cocktails, or better yet, while sitting at a swim-up bar.
But think about it, when you’re staying at a nice hotel the pool is a great place to do a few things in particular. First, it’s a great place to show off a new swimsuit. Also, you can pretend you’re on a luxurious tropical island. Sure, you may be in the middle of a city, but when you’re lounging by the hotel pool with a cold drink and the sun on your face, it’s easy to pretend. And, let’s be real- hotel breakfasts are usually pretty indulgent. From pancakes to pastries, just hit the hotel pool for a swim and you can work off all those calories and start your day on the right foot. Let’s not forget about people watching too.
If you like to plan where you stay based on a great pool, Trips to Discover put together a list of the Best Hotel Pools in America and some right here in Florida made the list. You can check out the full list here, but below are the top 10.
